I did some experimenting and saw what's happening. I've got your Reaper tutorials, but am wondering if you have a recommended setup involving dual-paths for parallel compression within a folder enclosing scheme. Even just for doing it to a single-track, like a lead vocal. Drums are more complicated, since I don't always want to parallel process all the drums equally. I still wish there was another option for hiding away a group of tracks in a single track, like Logic's folders, that didn't introduce these other routing considerations. Maybe it's just getting used to it. Either way, I can keep experimenting and coming up with solutions that work for me, but it's always helpful to see the way you've worked it out. Thanks
Hi Kenny-- Begging your indulgence to ask what you do in Reaper with routing and folders. In ProTools I usually use a layered aux-bussing approach with some paths built-in for parallel compression. In Reaper I could ignore folders altogether, but if I use them it seems like there's a lack of clarity how they affect the routing of the child tracks. How does simply placing a track in a folder affect its routing? What does it look like in the routing matrix?
My general question is if you're going to set up a parallel compression scheme, do you stay away from folders altogether, or is there an elegant way of controlling that with folder routing? And if you just try to use the folders as organizational tools with group mutes, does it screw up the sends and receives of the tracks it contains? Thanks--Kevin
Hi Kenny, love your tutorials on Groove3. Loved the mixing rock, Reaper 3, and I'm just starting R4 now. I've been using Reaper for about two years, I'll probably stick with it. Do you think you'll ever do an indepth video on editing audio in Reaper like you use edit groups in Pro Tools? Mind you I use groups, and edit in Reaper, but some of the work flow in PT is pretty nice... The warp feature when you just need to move a few beats of a High Hit, etc.
