"As some of you know, for a number of years I’ve sung the praises of using REAPER audio software (that’s Rapid Environment for Audio Production, Engineering, and Recording) for radio/podcast production. I went on a little Twitter rant about this recently partly in response to this piece RE Pro Tools and podcast hiring diversity. I’ve since decided to put my money where my mouth is by doing some free Zoom workshops demoing how REAPER is a practical, powerful, and affordable alternative to the “industry standard” Pro Tools.
More than a demo, actually–I want to give out some of the time-saving customizations, presets and templates I’ve built for REAPER over the last several years. (These use free/stock plugins and are based around some of the same Pro Tools key commands many radio folks already know and use). I’ll walk through installing my customizations, give a rundown of how I use them, and show the basics of how to tweak things for your own needs. (These won’t be in-depth audio engineering or sound design lessons per se.) Ultimately, I hope to show why I think REAPER is the best all-around tool for radio/podcast production."
