I have a new project Template I made in REAPER to give me a punchy/heavy sound quickly without too much mixing/mastering effort. It actually works surprisingly well for other styles as well.

The downside I am finding is that it's quite "dialed in" so changing things or ADDING more layers is proving to be a challenge, although I should be using a new project for that anyway (<laziness)

What do you guys think of the mix?!

Hi mate, that's a good idea. It sounds great on my monitors. So you compose and record on this template? Does your computer support monitoring without latency with all plug ins working?

Count me in wink.gif Templates make simply open the project and immiediately start to record your idea instead of wasting time to set everything up and loosing the idea you brought to record. Also if you already hear a proper mix (at least close to proper) it affects the way you arrange particular parts of the song.

Yes! Zero latency and I have a total of 2 VST's running, 32 tracks, and 39FX active. My computer is pretty beastly though !

Thanks for the kind words as well Gabriel!

Thanks much!!! This is a very good template. This is the part that can often be so hard when folks first start recording so this will be very helpful I think.

FOLKS!!! START RECORDING!!!! smile.gif

I'm zipping the file and making it a permanent part of this thread just to keep it handy!!

It's a REAPER file so don't try to open it in CUBASE or something smile.gif

Sort of a dumb question, (I have not been on GMC in a while!)

How do I edit a post? I have a new version I'd like to but up with my initial post

Thanks!

Just login and below the post you should see "edit". Unless your account has lapsed or something?

Looks like it has lapsed as I am signed in and can't see an edit button sad.gif

Anyway, here is the updated track! Now essentially a full song (4 and a half minutes |m| )
