To be a great mixer you must know signal flow. That's why this course emphasizes signal routing and is designed to help you get the most power out of Reaper's extremely customizable Mixer. Learning about mix groups and aux tracks is essential knowledge for any mixer. You learn how to create mix groups and aux tracks and how to assign FX to them. With these useful, real-world routing tips, you quickly become more efficient and creative as you craft the perfect mix in Reaper.
This course also explores automation. Learning these tools dramatically improves and enhances the sound of your mix by allowing you to subtly vary the sonic landscape for different sections of your song. Automation also lets you tweak all the plug-in parameters over and over again to ensure that you get just the right result! Gary also explains the various types of automation and helps you understand the differences between touch and latch modes. You also learn when to use them as you watch, in real time, as the automation is written to the track.
So set up your mix and get ready to dive deep into Reaper and put that last bit of all important polish on your next mix!

Another nice Reaper tutorial from Gary, that contains many tricks that can enhance your workflow.
The seasoned Reaper user will know most of this, but there are still some little jewels that you find in this tutorial that will help your productivity (for me, it's setting the volume of an item straight from the track, and the mouse modifiers).
Some of these techniques have been introduced in the previous tutorials, so you may find yourself skipping quickly to the next chapter. But still, there are many useful tips !
Thanks Gary for those trainings, I'll watch this space for some more !
