    • Hi Nikki,

      My apologies; the video had some issues that means I need to record a new version to update the problems. Bear with me while this new tutorial is recorded and used to replace this one. In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding Gain Staging in Reaper, leave them here or on my YouTube Channel and I’ll be happy to try an answer them for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Gosh, I’ve been looking for the ideal approach to gain staging in Reaper.

    I’ve finally found a video for it, but it’s down. Dang!

    I’ve found your youtube channel, but it’s not there. Any plans of doing another one?

    • Sorry about the video being offline; there were some issues that came up after recording it that means I need to re-do some of it. I intend to do it this week and get a new one up on here and the YouTube Channel.

      Check back over the weekend and it should be recorded, edited and uploaded :0)

  • Okay all, the video has been updated and added to this original post… enjoy and I welcome all your feedback ๐Ÿ™‚
