Composer/producer Gary Hiebner is back with a deep course on Reaper’s powerful MIDI implementation. So if you make music using MIDI, check it out!
In Gary’s previous course you saw what a full-featured a audio workstation Reaper really is. In this course, you'll dive deep into making music using MIDI and Reaper's proprietary collection of FX and virtual instruments.
Reaper has lots of ways to record and edit MIDI, and in this course you’ll see its amazing power and all the musical transformations you can create. You’ll learn how to create in-scale transpositions, powerful note quantizations and even "humanizing" your overly tight MIDI performance to give your tracks a real-world feel. This one-of-a-kind DAW also has a lot of visual editing options available when displaying your MIDI data. See how to maximize your MIDI to make editing a digital breeze.
In the final section of the course, Gary introduces you to some of the full-featured plug-ins and virtual instruments that are included with Reaper. He explains how different combinations of FX chains create different sounds giving you subtle sonic soundscapes to explore.
