Time To Make The Leap To Professional Recording Tools!
Newbies Guide to Audio Recording Awesomeness 2: Pro Recording With Reaper Software
Once you have learned the basics of recording audio on your computer (which we taught you in Module 1 of The Newbies Guide to Audio Recording Awesomeness, if you didn’t already have the knowledge), you’ll need the tools to record like the pros.
Just a few years ago, that would have meant spending many hundreds – if not thousands – of dollars for something like Pro Tools. Then you had to figure out how to use it.
Today you can get Reaper software for $60, which is crazy! And you have us to show you how to use it. We make it super easy for anyone to understand.
