Reaper - much more than I thought.
Reaper is explained is done so well. The pace of the tutorial is slow enough to absorb but (just as important) fast enough not to be plodding. The voice over and the clicks on screen are performed by someone who is masterful.. great speaking cadence.

Excellent, very thorough
Whiles I already had the basics of Reaper. This gave me a lot of knowledge on editing, comping, using FX and all the keyboard shortcuts that go hand in hand. The videos are also well labelled and quite specific. I also found the teacher very easy to understand and he obviously knows reaper inside out.
