Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning REAPER 4.
If you are a premium subscriber to Lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files for this course. We'll be working on variations of the same project throughout the majority of this course. And I've included versions of it at various stages. I didn't include for every single movie as we'll be working progressively most of the time. But I did want to include key versions where I either imported or recorded a sound that you won't be able to duplicate on your own. I suggest placing copies of each project folder or file on your desktop for easy access. And to ensure that you have the originals as backups if you want to start any project over again. You can copy files by right clicking on them either in Mac or Windows. Choosing Copy and right clicking on the desktop and choosing Paste. Now I'll cover this more thoroughly in the course but Reaper files are recognized by their rpp extension.
Double clicking the project file will open the project in Reaper where you can start working on it right away. Just be sure to copy the entire photo containing the Reaper project file. If you drag or copy just the project file itself without the other files you may end up with missing sounds and other issues with the project. If you don't have access to the exercise files, you'll still be able to follow on with me. And you can use your own recordings to apply what I'm showing you in this course.
