Another Great Video Collection

To get the best out of Reaper you need to know what's different about it without getting bogged down with the complexities. After all the end game is creativity right, and nothing stifles creativity more than technicalities. Kenny Gioia has mastered the art of teaching Reaper by creating bite sized videos which have a methodical sequence. It means that you can build on what you learned before and get to realize why things work the way they do in the program. There is never a sense of information overload if you follow the sequence and take breaks to let it all sink in, and of course try out what you have been taught. This probably the nearest you would get to a Reaper internship.

Reaper rocks!

I've been a Studio One Pro user for years (and will continue to use it for years to come), but i've been toying with the idea of adding Reaper to my workflow because of its extra flexibility. These tutorials were perfect in walking me through what I need to know to confidently make better use of the program. Excellent series!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I've played an instrument since I was 10. Drums and Trumpet. I'm 40 now. I can play a little bit of any instrument. Master of none. Rock bands most of my life.

2. What training have you had?

I was taught trumpet classically from grade school up until I graduated high school. I went to Five Towns College for engineering and learned that you can't just learn this stuff from school. I did graduate though.

3. When did you get into recording?

I've been recording since I was 15. Two cassette players wired to a Radio Shack mixer. Eventually I got an 8 track reel to reel by Fostex. I've used just about every DAW and I started using them before they even recorded audio. Vision and Performer were just MIDI sequencers at the time. Before they became Studio Vision and Digital Performer. I got studio jobs because I knew computer MIDI and most studios didn't. I eventually moved up to Sound Tools which was two track. Then Pro Tools made a Audio Media III card which let you have 4 inputs. Gradually I moved up from there with Pro Tools D24, Pro Tools Mix to HD.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Marcy Playground
Mandy Moore
LFO
Willa Ford
Lee Ann Womack
Paulina Rubio
Hall & Oates
Bayside
Head Automatica
Cute is What We Aim For
FTSK
and many more...

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Hmmm. My Mom always said "Self Praise Stinks". I think it's because I have no ability to talk like a professional announcer, or plan out my teachings. So I teach as if you were sitting next to me. Pretty much off the cuff. I think that engages people more. We're so used to hearing everything done so properly and planned out with unnecessary explanations and proper wording that the brain will actually ignore most of it. Your brain tunes it out like you're back at your desk at school. But if the teacher grabbed you aside and just explained it to you, I believe you'd get more out of it. That is what I try to do.
