Drag tabs from a docker to rearrange tabs, create a new docker in another location, or float windows
Create, customize, and freely dock or float toolbars for different uses
+ Envelope editing
Support for copying envelope points with the mouse
Groups of selected points act like contiguous items when moving or copying
Shift+control+drag on envelope segment (customizable) edits the envelope level within the time selection
+ Media Explorer preview time selection
Select a portion of a media file to insert into a project
Optionally loop and/or stretch the selected portion to fit the destination area and tempo
Scroll and zoom the media peaks preview
Control+alt drag the time selection to render a new cropped file to REAPER, the desktop, or a folder
Control+alt drag the time selection to sampler plugins or other applications that support drag/drop
+ Media Item Properties dialog
Item/Take Properties dialog stays open while you work elsewhere, follows changes in selected items
Pitch adjust and playrate fields accept values (such as "1.004") or simple operations (such as "x2")
+ MIDI editing
Set user-definable scales and chords in the MIDI editor for drawing and editing notes
Using mouse modifiers, copy/duplicate/paste actions can create pooled (ghosted) in-project MIDI source data
Editing any pooled MIDI media item affects all media items that share the same pooled data
Un-pool shared MIDI by gluing the media item or via MIDI source properties dialog
MIDI filter improvements when displaying multiple media items in the same editor
Many new mouse modifier behaviors to paint notes and chords, edit arpeggios, etc
+ Mouse modifier customization
Customize mouse behavior when using keyboard modifiers in 40 different contexts
In many contexts, mouse click and mouse drag can be customized separately
Assign different behaviors to the mouse when over the top or bottom half of a media item
Assign any action (including custom actions) to mouse click or double-click in most contexts
Existing/legacy mouse preferences are preserved, but user changes to mousemap settings will override
Actions to reassign default mouse action for any context
Lots of customizable choices of behavior, for example:
Move/copy just the selected area of media items, or all selected media items
Edit edges/fades for all selected items, or just those whose edges line up
Adjust media item volume or pitch
Move envelope points or MIDI notes/CC just horizontally or vertically
Assign marquee selection to left-click
Assign hand-drag-scroll to right-click
Many other customizable behaviors (50 behaviors just for media items)
+ Multichannel track monitoring/input recording/routing
Allow choosing greater than 2 channels of input (inputs must be sequential, though)
Multichannel track meters
Freely route any number of track channels to other tracks, hardware outputs
+ Project Bay
Manage, preview, search, replace project source media, media items, and FX
Manage media item groups and take comps for the project
Save/load project bay contents to create working sets of source media/FX for different purposes

+ Render and batch-convert improvements
Support for rendering project tracks and time regions to separate folders and files
Customizable wildcards provide great flexibility in naming batches of rendered/converted files
Save render presets for workflow efficiency

Take lanes remain aligned by recording pass, creating empty lanes as needed (optional)
Each recording pass gets its own take lane, even when recording overlaps existing items
Recording no longer splits existing media items into different numbers of take lanes
Save/load named comps (sets of takes from multiple media items)
A/B or cycle through saved comps to audition/compare
+ Theme layout support (WALTER)
Per-track TCP/MCP layout support
Screensets support saving/restoring layouts
Old themes use default layouts available in Plugins/default_layouts.txt
New themes can define their own layouts
Layouts can be switched via menu, screensets/layouts dialog, or customizable actions
See: http://www-dev.reaper.fm/sdk/walter/walter.php
+ Time selection
Default copy/cut actions respect time selection if there is one (including leading/trailing space)
Using mouse modifiers, copy/move behaviors can respect time selection if there is one
Editing behavior can be customized separately for media items, envelope points, MIDI editing

Jajjaa el 99,99% de esas funciones no las usaré, pero merece la pena, sin duda :mrgreen:

Ya puestos, podías haber incluído el log de cambios completo, y no uno parcial...:risa:
#7 por vidalsh el 25/06/2011
pd: y todo eso ha sido debatido desde la primera version alpha...

yo destacaria la implementacion midi y un avance cojonudo en el editor midi, poder pintar notas en el editor segun la tonalidad o escala que elijas, puedes pintar en el piano roll tanto acordes como arpegios o notas sueltas y que automaticamente se ajusten a la escala y tonalidad correspondiente...

las toolbars totalmente customizables por el usuario, puedes ponerlas donde quieras y dockearlas arriba abajo a la izda o la decha y puedes por supuesto customizarlas a tu gusto y poner los botones que quieras, incluso macros o ediciones avanzadas...

el frezee o render ahora ya no tienen significado, se puede hacer de mil maneras, por items, por pista, por mono, por estereo, con o sin efectos...

el comping se llama lanes, y es una pasada para grabaciones con muchas pasadas donde puedes hacer autentico comping eligiendo la parte de cada toma que quieras sin tener que cambiar de pista...

y por fin un vumetro rtm en el master, para que no tengas que usar plugins...

ademas ahora reaper tiene un in fx pre fader...

eso asi por encima...

lo de reaper es mu fuerte tio...que gran programa...

Vidalsh, algún día tendrías que hacer un post con tu selección de programas y plugins imprescindibles para guitarra.

jeje...con reaper y guitar rig 4 esta todo dicho, no necesitas mas...

el resto son pijaditas para que suenen mejor las cosas en la mezcla, tipo el compresor cytomic the glue, fantastico, lo uso casi por defecto en casi todas las pistas, en los bajos y el bombo suelo meterle el maxbass de waves, los nomad factory tienen algunos presets de fabrica muy buenos para los instrumentos, y asi sin mas sin toquetear nada van muy bien...

el quizas menos conocido que uso es el RND digital D4, eso es una pasada para cualquier instrumento o voz que tengas que hacer que destaque sin comerte la dinamica de la mezcla, su preset para saxo es una pasada para aplicarlo a las guitarras solistas y se realzan sin cargarse la mezcla y dejando espacio al resto...un plug in muy bueno...

para voces, el mejor compresor que conozco es gratuito, el nasty vcs (variety of sound), junto con el D4 vas sobrado...

otro secretito que puedo hacer con reaper es masterizar al mismo tiempo que hago la mezcla, esto es poner el t-racks o el slate digital fg-x en el master y asi la mezcla la estas haciendo directamente masterizada, en lugar de una vez hecha la mezcla y aplicar plug ins de masterizacion, los pones directamente en el master como efectos y ya el renderizado final esta masterizado, con lo cual si hay algun problema con la eq o dinamica de alguna parte lo tienes todo controlado en la mezcla directamente y puedes corregirlo a la vez que masterizas...esta vale 10 puntos ;) :D

pd: otro secretito es usar el vumetro del master de reaper correctamente, tienes un vumetro normal y otro rms (root means square), las rayitas de los lados que se mueven mas abajo que el vumetro normal...ahi en el rms es donde vas a poder subir bien una señal o una mezcla y no en el vumetro normal donde solo vas a saturarla y distorsionarla...para mi cualquier mezcla deberia estar lo suficientemente baja de volumen como para poder subir en la masterizacion su rms y no su volumen...

¿Prefieres el guitarrig al amplitube?

¿Prefieres el guitarrig al amplitube?

pozi...es que al amplitube o al th2 no les he pillado el truco de quitarles el ruido que meten ni tampoco he podido sacarles mi sonido...

estos programas son como un ampli practicamente, si no puedes sacar tu sonido entonces no te sirve directamente...

lo de los presets esta muy bien y tal, pero todos me suenan a rayos, me gusta mas montarme mi configuracion con mi sonido...

todos mis presets tienen la misma configuracion, solo cambio los efectos y la eq y poco mas, pero la base del sonido tiene que ser la que a mi me gusta, no la que le guste a otro jejeje

con el guitar rig ha sido con el unico que he podido sacar esa base para conseguir un sonido en el que solo tengo que subir o bajar la distorsion y/o añadir efectos al sonido base...

con el amplitube o el th2 me he vuelto loco a buscarlo y nada no hubo manera...

y en mi configuracion encuentras cosas muy contradictorias, odio el sonido de un rectiffier, pero el guitar rig con el ramfire ese, que es una simulacion de rectiffier, lo tengo como base del sonido, uso el rammfire con muy poquita distorsion, como si fuera un sonido apagado tipo hendrix, y luego le meto un cat para subir o bajar la distorsion y añadirle brillo al sonido...junto con el control room que lo uso mas como eq general, ya saco el sonido que me gusta, y puedo bajar el cat para tocar ac/dc o deep purple o subirlo para tocar judas o scorpions y si hay que tocar algo de la eq lo hago directamente en el control room antes que tirar de un eq...

seguramente seran manias mias, pero con el guitar rig como ya tengo mi sonido base, no tengo mas que añadir y/o quitar efectos y poco mas...

con amplitube y el resto de software no he conseguido sacar mi sonido base y por eso no los uso y lo mismo no se usarlos tan bien como el guitar rig, donde el botoncito learn es la salvacion para eliminar ruidos y ajustar los volumenes...

supongo que es como los amplis, no es que un programa sea mejor o peor que otro, simplemente uno lo controlo mejor y me da el sonido que quiero, pues ya no me molesto mas jejeje ;)

es como los secuenciadores...

antes usaba logic, cuando descubri acid para los loops se hizo mi secuenciador principal, pero siempre tenia que estar tirando de cubase o sonar para los vsti y cosas mas complejas, y fue pillar reaper y todo listo, ya no necesito nada mas, ni siquiera un programa para masterizar...

cuando encuentras algo que te funciona, no lo cambies jejeje :D
#12 por loitador el 27/06/2011
Ya... yo probé el guitarrig y no lo pude hacer funcionar, probe el amplitube y todo fue más sencillo, más intuitivo... me pareció que el sonido mejoraba mucho al de mi pedalera.

El otro día puse la pedalera, la comparé con el amplitube, y me pareció justamente lo contrario...

Tengo un oído bastante malo :D
