REAPER 101 is a series of short tutorials to help you with setting up and using REAPER. To kick off the series, here is one to keep your projects neatly organized.
By default REAPER projects do not use a media folder. All your audio files, project files, backups, and peaks are saved in one folder and its a HUGE MESS!! Here’s how to fix that.
- Open up the project settings (File>Project Settings…)
- Switch to the Media Tab.
- In the “Path to store media files” Type “Audio Files” or “Media Files” to create a folder within each new project folder to store all recorded and imported media files.
- Double check that “WAV” and “24 bit PCM” are selected as the recording format.
- Save as default project settings.
Hope this helps, stay tuned for much more in this series.
