Sound Design in Reaper

March 8 - March 22, 2022

Sound Design in Reaper is a 3-part online workshop in covering the basics of sound design for the first-time user. Reaper is a well-built and intelligent DAW (digital audio workstation) that is rapidly becoming industry-standard for music, post audio production as well as interactive media. In the first session, participants will be given an overview of Reaper, and take a deep dive into its interface. In the second session, we will focus on how to edit and create sound design for a short video, utilizing Reaper’s built-in plugins. The final session will cover more advanced techniques for sound design.

Workshops are open to Digital Arts Resource Centre members and the general public engaged in the creation of non-commercial, independent productions and work (Non-commercial, independent productions are productions for which the director retains copyright and artistic control, and for which the production is neither being produced for a client nor for the purpose of advertising or promotion).

Who Is Ineligible for Workshops?

Digital Arts Resource centre does not offer our workshops to persons employed by any government body or any major corporation if the resources are being used to facilitate benefit for one’s employer or for corporate professional development within one of these kinds of organizations. Our workshops are heavily subsidized as they are available only for independent artists/learners who cannot typically afford to take corporate rate workshops. You can find non-subsidized workshops from our friends at SPAO or Henry’s.
