Default Advices for ex Cubase user

Hi everybody,

I'm a Sound Designer in Video Games and I'm from Cubase, but I'm trying to migrate to Reaper.
However I wanted to have some tips if possible, I know that everything is configurable and that you have to poke around to get to his ends.
But I am deadlocked for several points, I think it would be necessary to make macros for some features (which for me its essential in my workflow) asked to know:

- Invert the left click / drag and right click (so that I select with the left click and drag) and the time loop (right click and drag)

- Create the modification of the gain clip to the mousewheel, I have the impression that reaper does not take into account the mouse scroll up or down, wheel is wheel,
Basically (like cubase) I want once the object (the clip) selected I can mount its gain clip by scrolling the wheel up and down by scrolling down

- Apply fade in or out (fades) on several tracks selected at the same time (the equivalent of shift + fade on Pro tools and automatic on Cubase)


Thank you in advance for your answers !

I really want to invest myself on this Daw he looks really powerful.

1. Not sure how or if time select with right drag is possible but you can set left click to select items in prefs/mouse modifiers.

2. Only in combination with a key command I think: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTLfL3B3qi4

3. Ctrl/Alt modifier.

When starting with REAPER, one of first things you should do, is to make yourself a nice big cup of coffee, sit back, and browse through the Actions list as well as the mouse modifiers (Preferences -> Editing behavior -> Mouse modifiers). This will give you a good overview of all the editing actions available in a default installation.

and the time loop
Important tip that many new users don't realize: REAPER's "time selection" and "loop region" are actually two different things. By default they are linked, but they can be unlinked: Actions -> Toggle loop points linked to time selection. By unlinking them, you can use the time selection for editing during playback without affecting the loop points.


Quote:
- Invert the left click / drag and right click (so that I select with the left click and drag) and the time loop (right click and drag)
Mouse modifiers:
Arrange view context: Right drag: Set to "Select time"
Track context: Left drag: Set to "Marquee select items"
Perhaps also do the same for Media item contexts.

However, in the long run it will be simpler to just get used to right-drag for selection, since REAPER uses it everywhere.

Actions that are named "MIDI CC relative/mousewheel relative" should take into account mousewheel direction. You can also combine two actions into a simple script to get relative movement:
Code:
mousewheel = ({reaper.get_action_context()})[7]
if mousewheel > 0 then
    reaper.Main_OnCommandEx(UPcommandID, 0, 0)
else
    reaper.Main_OnCommandEx(DOWNcommandID, 0, 0)
end
or with a custom action:
Code:
Action: Skip next action if CC parameter <0/mid
-- Place your UP action here. Perhaps "Nudge items volume +1dB"
Action: Skip next action if CC parameter >=0/mid
-- Place your DOWN action here. Perhaps "Nudge items volume -1dB"

Quote:

I don't know what exactly shift+fade does in ProTools, but there are numerous actions in the Actions list that apply fades to all selected items. Left-dragging the edge of a media item will also apply a fade to all selected items.

a script that could:

copy fades from selected item

and another that would:

apply that copy to all selected items


those two scripts would be nice to have around
