Interesting tutorial on Reaper. It covers pretty much everything you need to know to get started. Worth a watch, even if it's just to understand a DAW that you don't normally use.

Very Nice overview of Reaper. He does go a little fast, so you might need to watch it twice.

Great quick intro vid from Gary.
I have had reaper on my desktop for months and not got into it much being a Cubase user.
This will now give me a bit more confidence to get stuck in.
Now looking forward to the next video
