Reaper: split the audio into various bands and process each independently

June 21, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Thanks to AGZ for providing this tutorial

The source audio track is sent (master send disabled) to 6 other tracks, each with a ReaFIR plugin to define the bands. Subs, Lows, Low Mids, High Mids, Highs and Ultra Highs. After that is a simple compressor for each band. You can insert any other plugins you want for each band: Saturation, stereo width etc. You may find this to be a good starting point for mastering.

Reaper updated

October 5, 2009 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comment 

Cockos has updated REAPER to v3.12.

REAPER

REAPER (Rapid Environment for Audio Prototyping and Efficient Recording) is designed for the recording, arrangement, editing, mixing and rendering of audio.

Changes:

* Automation lanes: fixed possible crash when removing FX parameter envelopes.

* CD burning: fixes to native XP mode track divisions.

* Extensions API: GetSetMediaItemInfo() fixes for fade shape settings.

* Fade drawing: when using full-area filling, fixed drawing when zoomed in.

* FX: per-FX buggy plugin compatibility mode (assumes plugin is not threadsafe, needs constant precleaned buffers, etc.).

* Hardware outputs: post-fader track outputs obey track polarity control.

* MIDI editor: show notes pressed as long as the input note is pressed.

* OSX: improved drag/drop support.

* OSX: support for control+alt+drag to render to new file (drag to desktop, finder, sampler, etc.).

* OSX: CD burning support.

* OSX: REX support.

* OSX: special casing for POD Farm VST misreporting view type (VST 2.4 should be composited view).

* OSX: fix for some AUs that do not export automatable parameters until after audio streams are initialized.

* OSX: added correct file locking to prevent writing files open for read.

* Pencil mode: fixed fade/autofade settings for newly drawn media items.

* ReaControlMIDI: support for raw mode (0-127 access to all CC messages).

* ReaControlMIDI: envelopes and TCP knobs report the same value as the slider (0-127, 0-16383, or on/off).

* ReaControlMIDI: support for storing/sending sysex dumps up to 64KB.

* ReaScript: run Python or Perl scripts that call Reaper API functions.

* ReaScript: assign reascripts to key commands or toolbar buttons.

* VST bridging: optimized plug-ins that call for tempo information.

* VST bridging/firewalling: per plug-in option to embed UI (not as compatible, less crash-resilient).

* VST: safer querying of text strings from certain plug-ins.

* Win32: async file reading now has more grace on error.

* Win32: file locking improvements (no longer allow writing to media files that are open and online in REAPER, etc.).

* x64: VST bridging performance improvements, ReaRoute performance improvements.

* x64: will now use same config path as x86 (unless appdata/REAPER64 is valid).

* x64: REX support (via bridging).

* x64: fix for certain (broken) ASIO drivers.
