REAPER 101 is a series of short tutorials to help you with setting up and using REAPER.
A filename is automatically created for every file recorded in REAPER. If you ever need to find a specific file in your Media Folder, it’s good to understand how files are named. By default the format is : Tracknumber-Trackname-Timestamp[XX]. While its nice to have all that info, many users find it messy. There is a preference to change the way it is set up.
- Open Preferences and switch to the Recording settings
- Look for the Filename format for recorded files option towards the bottom.
- Select your preferred filename format. We recommend Trackname[XX] as this is closer to what other professional DAWs use.
