EDITING IN REAPER with Jeff Emtman

Anyone can learn to edit audio.

This workshop is an introduction to editing audio with Reaper, a highly-customizable software that is loved by beginner and professional editors alike. 

The goal of this workshop is to give you all the information you need to start editing your own projects in Reaper. You'll learn how to organize projects, cut audio quickly, adjust volume, add music, export your finished projects, and begin to customize the program so that you can unlock the full potential of Reaper - all with hands-on exercises and audio provided by the instructor.  

Students must bring headphones and a laptop with Reaper installed. Please download the software from - the free trial is full-featured and is suitable for this workshop.

We recommend this workshop for anyone brand new to audio editing or beginners who want to deepen their knowledge.


The cost of this workshop is $50 for non-members and $40 for members of the Podcast Garage or members of the Harvard Ed Portal (i.e. any Allston-Brighton resident). Sign up below!

We're offering scholarships for this workshop. Learn more here.
