Default Big names using REAPER

I know, I know... it has been asked a few times already.

First, let me explain the purpose of the question: I am going to give an introductory course of REAPER in an audio school in Mexico.

Since it mostly addresses young people who are new to the audio world, in my first class I would like to mention a few names of internationally known production companies / producers / sound designers / game developers / musicians who use REAPER in their workflow.

My only aim is to impress with names here. It's a very cheap trick, I know. But sometimes necessary to get the attention.

Here is what we on the forum have found so far:

Far Cry 4 (Sound Design)
http://reaperblog.net/2015/02/reaper...for-far-cry-4/

Electronic Arts
https://www.extremraym.com/en/ea-rpp-generator/

Downward Spiral: Horus Station (Sound Design)
https://reaperblog.net/2018/07/can-uzer-interview/

David Farmer (Sound Design)
https://reaperblog.net/2015/12/david...und-designers/

Ville Sorsa @ Remedy Entertainment (Sound Design for Control)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eDkR2opC7Y

Cloud Imperium (Sound Design for games like Star Citizen)
https://soundlister.com/new-audio-jo...t-and-ubisoft/

Wilbert Roget (Score for video game)
https://reaperblog.net/2017/11/codwwii_w_roget/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3agM8-nfncw

BBC (Broadcasting)
https://www.soundonsound.com/techniq...broadcast-team

Public Service Broadcasting (Live Show)
https://www.musicradar.com/news/guit...casting-574464

Caro Emerald (Music Production)
https://www.soundonsound.com/people/caro-emerald

Tycho (Music Production)
https://www.instagram.com/p/BvDSTfiH7j8/

FabFilter (Plugin Company)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_fDg_pgit5c

Do you want to help me completing list (with quotes or pictures of evidence)?

Haha, well yeah, he is obviously the most important one. Because if he wouldn't use it, he would probably stop developing it.

John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt.

Big enough name?

Oh boy, I knew it would go in this direction

As long as nobody starts saying that big studios are bound to the industry standard and that it doesn't matter which DAW they use...

I know all that, but it is not the purpose, ha!

I think it's very brave of you to be teaching Reaper to complete audio newbies. Perhaps even foolish. But admirable.
I do teach audio production occasionally and at times I've considered creating a custom configuration with tidier simplified menus, more standard keyboard-shortcuts, and perhaps a different theme, (though never actually gotten around to it). Have you considered something like this?

No references given, but a small list:

That’s exactly why companies such as Harmonix, Ubisoft, the BBC, Electronic Arts, Soundiron and others switched to REAPER at least for a part of their workflow.

Glenn Fricker and Ben Levin of YouTube fame use it.

I think REAPER is a secret weapon of many, many people, lol.

I for sure can't think of a better DAW once you set it up to your needs. It might take some time but it's worth it (you might need to learn how to code to do that though...that adds a substantial amount of time depending on what you want to do).

I feel my REAPER is like Cubase upgraded to super saiyan energy level One of the best MIDI editors in existence for me (I have tons of little stuff added that make me flyyyyyyy...not to mention all sorts of tempo manipulations you can do...so nice for recording your tempo and editing over that - humanize sucks, quantize sucks, but your own tempo map...that shit sounds like human is supposed to)

The very successful British band PSB also use REAPER:

How about instead of trying to impress with names, start with a feature comparison. In Protools, Cubase, Studio One you can do these things and in Reaper you can do all of these things. To me name dropping is not as impressive as a feature throwdown.

There have been a few attempts over the years, but I think they tend to fall apart for two reasons (among others):

1. Getting people to agree on what Reaper Lite should look like, what commands should be there, what should be shown in the theme, etc.

2. As soon as you customize the menus, you miss out on any changes to those menus in future Reaper updates.

Will Roget is a very accomplished game composer, who uses Reaper.

He's a super nice guy as well.

The part where he demonstrates his workflow, using Reaper, starts at 42 minutes into the video.

And I'm not famous, but a few years ago while working as assistant orchestrator at Skywalker Sound for the Sundance Composer Lab, Pro Tools crapped out on me, so I had to convert PT sessions (using AATranslator) on the fly into Reaper sessions, and then use Reaper and Sibelius to prepare scores and parts.

It worked out just fine.

That has also got to be the best endorsement for AA Translator ever

Seems like if a famous person (there must be some that visit these forums under alternate names) is using Reaper, and doesn't feel constrained by any stigma, they would do well to state as much somewhere, just for the sake of increasing the profile of Reaper and improving public perception.

I know Reaper is doing fine as-is, but still; never hurts to keep the momentum rolling. Reaper isn't an open-source project needing charity, but at the prices they sell it for, it's natural to want to help out where you can, and I would hope that famous folks wouldn't take the current situation for granted and would use their notoriety to keep the tools they depend on vital.

Off topic, but several years ago someone using the name “Steve Vai” posted on the Finale forum asking for someone to give lessons to bring him up to speed. There were some posts asking “Is this really Steve Vai?”

Two months later there was a full-page add in Keyboard Magazine with Steve Vai endorsing Finale for his upcoming solo project.

So big names do use the same software we use, and may even show up at the forum once in a while.

I remember the first time Kenny posted here — it was really cool. Now his videos are an integral part of the Reaper learning experience.

According to Pax Helgesen (sound designer at 343) there are two guys using Reaper for sound design on Halo Infinite. He also mentioned that all of the in-house sound designers at Respawn used Reaper while making Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Pretty cool!

I believe some CBC Radio One producers are using Reaper for podcast-type programming.
