Downloaded "reaper" to check it out [recommended by a few here] as an alternative to Audacity but cannot "see" any way of adding effects?

Audacity is pretty well laid BUT I am wondering if I am missing something.

Checked the sight, searched the "help" but cannot see if "effects" is one of Reapers" option.

Yes, that is one of the beauties of Reaper. There are hundreds of effects included and you can add any others you wish.

If you look at any track that you have recorded, there are a few square buttons in the box on the left end. To the right of the name of the track (guitar 1 or whatever), the square boxes include one named FX. Click on that and a list of effects should open. Choose one like ReaVerb, click on it and it should load up a window with options. You may have to click on UI to see the interface depending on your computer set up. Each effect will have a number of presets and also controls to make your own preset and save it if you want.

There are a lot of ways to arrange the main window so yours may look different from mine.

Let me know what happens!


I try to critique as if you mean business.....

'Scuse me for dredging up this old thread.
There is a page in the REAPER website with links to many, many video tutorials. Have at it! smile

You are going to love Reaper once you get past the initial learning curve. Like any DAW you will constantly learn new things as you use it. What I love about Reaper is how efficient it utilizes computer resources. The song I just posted had 36 tracks including virtual instruments, and tons of plugins, and ran flawlessly on my modest i5 machine (8GB ram) - peak computer usage was 34%.

To put processing on tracks, you can just click on the little rectangles inside the top half of the channel icon in the mixer view. That opens a dialogue box where you can select what you want. The plugins that come with Reaper are very useful, and I use them all the time even though I do have some fancy ones.

There are lot of YouTube videos, and you can go to the Cockos forum as well to learn and ask questions. http://forum.cockos.com/forumdisplay.php?f=20

Welcome to the Reaper Club!


PS: I know, I know, I am a fanboy of Reaper :-p

If it has strings I will find a way to play it!

It is excellent. I think that they did a great job with Reaper and it is really becoming widespread. $60 is just excellent. It is powerful, customizable and easy to learn. The video tutorials by Kenny Gioia are really well done.

As a 5-year Reaper user, I'd recommend reading the Reaper users manual, too. There are many sections you may want to skip over if you don't have an immediate need (MIDI implementation, advanced routing, for example).
The Reaper forums are also a great tool to use.
