Default How do I create a Chain?

The attached picture is what I want to create on Reaper. The user in the picture uses another program like Reaper called Acid Pro. I really want to know how to create this sound, and I think I have to chain, but I don't know how to do it.

No one has posted on this thread for about 6 months, but I'll give it a shot.

As a complete newb to DAW recording, and new to 8.1 as well, would the Reaper 4 explained be the best starting point for me to learn even the most basic functions? I'm a pretty quick study, but hate reading tech manuals, and I do have a knowledge of old knob and fader analog recording, but this old dog needs to get with this century. Hope you're still checking this thread Kenny, I'd love for you to answer this post.
PEACE Y'ALL, Keith

I'm not Kenny, but I'll chime in... the answer is yes. Reaper 4 Explained would be the best video for you to start with (all of Kenny's videos are worth watching though!!).

Please don't over look the Reaper User Guide. It is a valuable source of information and a great reference when you need an answer fast.

Thanks BluzKat, I will take your word for it, as thinking about it,you ain't sellin' the videos, and you've been on here for awhile, quite awhile! Haha. Appreciate the answer, I'll try downloading the manual, however when I tried from the help menu in Reaper, it downloaded, but wouldn't allow me to save it. I think my new PC is logging me on as "other user", and I should be the only user, and administrator, and may have to be administrator to save it, although I can't imagine why.
Peace, KC

Yes. I still monitor this thread. I certainly don't want to be a shill but as someone who has also had to learn Reaper from the ground up. I wished these videos were available.

Thanks

Thanks Kenny, I downloaded the user's guide, and got it saved, I will be purchasing your videos so I have my life to view them, as unfortunately the great value of a 30 day all access pass wouldn't give me enough time to get through one video. Should Reaper 4 explained be my first purchase? I downloaded the latest version, which I believe is 4.6. And I know almost zero, except that I like the GUI, and the Forum. One issue I know will cause me problems is that I have all my downloads in default locations picked by windows. I imagine the users guide will show me where to store them, and I can just send them to that location. I plan on installing a 256gb internal ssd sonetime this week. Should I wait until I install that, and install all my recording software on that drive because of the silent nature of ssds, then save my projects on my 2 TB 7200 RPM hdd? I have Cubase AI6 just to get the most out of my Yamaha MX61, because it uses a lot of VST3 instruments, which I track to an MTR, and drop those files into Reaper for editing, mixing, etc., and the MX is my interface for now as well. So, all of that is in different locations as well. So, to get to the point, once I install the ssd, should I send all of my recording software, and device drivers to their own specific files on the ssd, so I can recall any portion of my system from one location?
Sorry I didn't put any breathing space in this post, but for a Lawn Guilander, you're used to it! LOL
THANKS for your reply, hope you, or someone can decipher the above, and answer my rather vague questions. Hey, I'm new!
Peace (y'all ), KC

I've yet to work with SSD drives so I will hold off an giving you any advice there.

But I would get Reaper Explained first and get all the way through it and consider getting Reaper Tips and Tricks if you want to learn more. Followed by Reaper Advanced if you just can't get enough.

Thanks

Right. Just found a tutorial for Reaper 4. I forgot not to open my big mouth until I've looked at everything. :P

The videos are definitely great and will get you on your way to using Reaper.

The basic functions of Reaper will be the same in the version Kenny is using in the video and 'your' newer version. Use the Reaper User Guide and the forum to get up to speed on the newest features.

Enjoy.

As bluzkat said, not much as changed dramatically since I've made those videos.

In fact, I constantly bounce back and forth between 4.1 and 4.6 and don't feel a difference.

Thanks

Default What about version 5

OK I can certainly see that these videos are very popular and I am sure they are really good so I'm good there.

What I am wondering about is as they relate to v5... are they still worthwhile for v5 users?

Anyone know if a v5 version of the course is imminent?

I would hate to get and go through the v4 course just as the v5 course is about to come out, or find out the v4 videos don't apply well to v5.

I am a newb and have no experience with v4... or practically speaking v5 for that matter!

Thanks for any thoughts or comments.

I bought mine on v4 and still refer to it for v5 - there's very little difference - the basics are all there

I can say this:

Most of REAPER 4 Explained will still apply.

If you need it now, get it.

If you can wait. Wait.

But you won't have to buy it twice.

I just clicked on the video about customizing toolbars. Crashed my fuckin display driver and Reaper stopped responding. The ATI driver successfully recovered but every open screen in Reaper is pure white and I have no reason to believe it's going to be OK. I only spent about 4 hours so far recording this latest song which is now gone. I probably deserve a lecture about auto save, but if nothing else, I learned that those fucking videos aren't welcome here.

I don't think I would blame my video driver crashing on watching the video. I would think something else is going on.

Just my two cents.

Jumping to conclusions here.
I will be very surprised if you dont find it was not the videos that crashed your display. Works fine on mine.With an ATI card.
And like you say, engaging autosave is a really good idea.
Sorry for your loss, though.

EDIT: Two great minds....

Of interest, I compiled the REAPER tutorials in English, French, German, Russian, Spanish and Italian made by users and members of the community in this topic.

If you find channels of note that are not listed here, don't hesitate to post in that thread so that I can update the list.

Default Sorry, another newbee

Hi folks, friends or what you wish to be called :-)

I do not have a studio, only my iRig Keys and the computer with windows 10. And thougt, that I could use it together, and make som music.

After I bought Reaper, i found out, that there only was a few sounds, not a Piano, not drums and so on. So the next question is, where to find plugin with these sounds?

I am willing to spend around 20-30$ not more so any solutions is welcome.

The next problem with the newbee here, is to get Reaper and the the downloaded file/program to working together.

Hope for understanding...

Erling

Erling - Welcome :-)

There are many free or low-cost virtual instruments that you can download for use in Reaper.

Probably the best place to start is this link here:

You need to move those files to your VST plugins path. You can find this path (there can be multiple paths, by the way) by looking in Reaper's Options / Preferences / VST.

Once you've done that, click Re-scan and that VST instrument will be available and can be added to a track via it's FX button.

Default Wav files available?

Total newbie here but loving Reaper. Using Kenny's tutorial's from the Reaper Video page. As a teacher, I've seen many video "tutorials" that are really not even close to real teaching. Kenny - your tutorials are awesome...

That being said, you have many audio/wav files you use in the tutorials. It would be helpful if these were available for download to follow along with you. I have my own, but they just are not the same. For me, comparing/duplicating is a great learning tool. Having the same files you use would just make my learning easier.

So, is there any way/place to get copies of the audio files used in the website video training?
