In addition to the usual Christmas gifts for my 14 year old this year, I gave her a MIDI controller, my old Tascam US-144 audio interface, cables and bought her a license for Reaper. (She already has a microphone, XLR cable, and a boom stand.)
Last night while I was over there visiting, I installed the Tascam drivers and Reaper and confirmed that signal is making it into Reaper. But I am completely clueless on how to use that DAW. I found a Reaper tutorial on YT (by Sonic Orb Studios), but I was wondering what people here who use it would recommend on getting started with it.
