Thanks Kenny.

I use:
savefrom.net

They are pretty large files.

One video is over 27 minutes long!

Kenny has put a lot of time & effort into these videos!

A fab compilation of videos! An outstanding job!

This is crazy, I thought I am going to buy these when Kenny will release them on groove3, like he did with version 4 and SWS.
I would definitely pay for his stuff.

I suspect there is some sort of arrangement with Cockos here. His videos certainly help make REAPER very accessible...

Is this safe/legal? it seems to involve downloading 3rd-party "helper" files.

Sorry for OT.

At least on a Chromium based browser, it saves the actual mp4 video file just as it should (start a video on the REAPER site, right click on the actual video, then "Save video as") ... No extensions or 3rd party files/sites needed. Are you sure you chose that instead of "Save as" for another element?

On Windows 10 / IE11, is saves as .mp4, and no fancy add-on's either.
Play first, right-click should work.

Edit, Damn Lunar

From past experience these will be indispensable, illuminating and enjoyable.
Either Kenny or the developers or both are being very generous (as usual).

Tremendous.

Reaper, TAKE OVER. Be the #1 DAW. It's coming.

Thank you, Kenny. You wouldn't do this for free or for Cockos directly unless you totally believed in this product. And it's clear that you do. As we all do.

Kudos! Very professional and pedagogic (maybe even a wee bit too much so). Most users will learn a lot of stuff even from the most basic tutorials.

Thanks a lot for these.

I tried to find some tutorials on what I was trying to achieve the last couple of days - recording midi for a drum machine, first the beat (kick+snare) on track 1, then the hats on track 2, which is on another track below, and so on, committing new overdubs to new discrete tracks. Pretty basic stuff.

I found 2 pretty quickly. One was the one on midi (no.24) and the other in 'Midi Time' - Drum machine recording. Useful video.

It would be a really informative video for you to make (imho), if you could make one based around these two tutorials I mentioned, but include the ability to create new tracks and record to them as you go. It's not so simple at all. One has to change the monitoring options, the input options, all kinds of things to go beyond one physical track.

I'm talking about -

Track - 1: Kick and Snare (midi)
Track - 2: Hats (midi)
Track - 3: new stuff etc..

Here's a link to a thread where I describe it in more detail, if you are interested:

http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=172095


I've managed to make a template up to do what I want, but it took me about six hours to work it out. That is some kind of learning curve!

If you made just one video showing how to do this (I already know now), then it would cover several really fundamental bases all in one go, as I'm sure you would agree. It all makes sense when you figure it out, but working it out is a nightmare because there is nothing I could find that covered this in any tutorials or manual. I probably didn't look that hard, but still.

If it takes you six hours to figure out something like this, I would say it needs some kind of coverage somewhere, by someone. I've been using DAWs for decades and Reaper since v1, if that counts. Still, I don't pretend to be the sharpest tool in the box, so if someone can point out where I'm being an idiot, I'll happily admit to being an idiot.

Just a suggestion as I think your style is perfect (talking to Kenny here obviously) for this.


Anyway, excellent videos, well presented. Reaper is a program probably more than any other that could benefit from reading/watching some instructional material first off. The more the better! First to see what it is capable of. Secondly to show how to do it.

Thanks again.

I don't know how you do it, but even your beginner and intro tutorials tell me things that I did not know.

I'm not a MIDI guy (well not a heavy user) and I suspect Kenny isn't either, but isn't the collection maybe a little MIDI-light? Not so much in what it does, but how to use it?

Do predominately MIDI-users want to contribute or at least request areas that need covering? The coverage suits my needs, but the MIDI crowd are usually quite vocal
