 Here’s what enthusiastic REAPER users and course students are saying;

“The REAPER course, under Jim’s expert tuition and easy-going style of teaching, made difficult concepts easy to understand for a novice like myself. There is nothing better than having an experienced musician and sound engineer explain what is important and why. This course is the best thing I have done for myself in a long time and now it is up to us to take it from here and – make music! The enthusiasm of being amongst “music people ” is infectious and so great to be part of. Thanks Jim!”

Roy Smith, Graduate: Jim Blair REAPER Course 2012

“REAPER is a very deep and well designed recording program. I usually mix through a desk with mostly hardware outboard gear, but when recently I mixed using REAPER, it was the first time in years that I enjoyed mixing “in the box”. Jim’s course looks like an excellent way to get up to speed in REAPER!”

Terry Manning, Engineer/Producer: Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Joe Walsh
