What's New in REAPER

REAPER is a complete digital audio production application for computers, offering a full multitrack audio and MIDI recording, editing, processing, mixing and mastering toolset. REAPER supports a vast range of hardware, digital formats and plugins, and can be comprehensively extended, scripted and modified[^3^].


In this article, we will review some of the new features and improvements that were introduced in REAPER, which was released on October 18, 2018.

FX Enable Actions for Last Tweaked Parameter for Non-Track FX

One of the new features in REAPER is the ability to enable or disable FX parameters for non-track FX using actions. This means that you can assign keyboard shortcuts or MIDI controllers to toggle on or off any parameter of any FX that is not on a track, such as master FX, monitor FX, or media item FX.

This can be useful for quickly adjusting the level of a reverb or delay on your master bus, for example, or for switching between different EQ settings on your monitor mix.

To use this feature, you need to first tweak the parameter that you want to control using your mouse or MIDI controller. Then, you can use the actions "FX: Enable last tweaked parameter for non-track FX" or "FX: Disable last tweaked parameter for non-track FX" to toggle the parameter on or off. You can also use the action "FX: Toggle last tweaked parameter for non-track FX" to switch between the two states.

You can find these actions in the Action List under the FX category, or you can search for them by name. You can also assign them to custom toolbars, menus, or buttons.

Show Built-In VST/AU/LV2 Preset Names in FX Browser/Project Bay

Another improvement in REAPER is that it now shows the names of the built-in presets for VST, VST3, AU, and LV2 plugins in the FX browser and the Project Bay. This makes it easier to browse and select presets for your plugins without having to open their GUIs.

To see the preset names, you need to enable the option "Show preset names when available" in the FX browser or the Project Bay settings. You can also right-click on any plugin in the FX browser or the Project Bay and choose "Show preset names" from the context menu.

Note that this feature only works for plugins that support standard preset formats, such as .fxp/.fxb for VST/VST3, .aupreset for AU, and .lv2preset for LV2. It does not work for plugins that use their own proprietary preset formats.

Fix Loading of REAPER Presets for VST Shell Plugins in FX Browser/Project Bay

A bug fix in REAPER is that it now correctly loads REAPER presets for VST shell plugins in the FX browser and the Project Bay. A VST shell plugin is a plugin that contains multiple sub-plugins within it, such as Waves or Native Instruments plugins.

In previous versions of REAPER, loading a REAPER preset for a VST shell plugin would not load the correct sub-plugin or its settings. This has been fixed in REAPER, so you can now save and load REAPER presets for VST shell plugins without any issues.


These are just some of the new features and improvements that were added in REAPER There are many more changes and fixes that you can read about in the changelog[^1^]. If you want to try out REAPER yourself, you can download it from the official website[^3^]. You can evaluate REAPER in full for 60 days without any limitations.

REAPER is a powerful and flexible digital audio workstation that can handle any audio project you throw at it. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, REAPER has something c481cea774
