This is my 1st venture forth into the realm known as Reaper. Boy, this is very difficult to do.
Dream Theatre, and their label have not officially endorsed this, but working on them. I have not received the Master yet. But, I have been told by legitament sources it is on its way, to give them a good sample of what RBN would be like for Them. If they were to veture forth.
So, that being said, I have been working with the CD version. No small feat to say the least.
Here is what I have gotten to so far.
Are nowhere near complete. I have set reaper to find the Snare and Kick. But, it doesnt get all of them. As for manualy editing, it is a slow agonizing process. But, It is very rewarding. I have only completed the pre intro, still working on those darn tomtoms, the are a beast to do on this song.
This was simple really, I have some timing issues, but what I did was found a midi version of just the guitar track and used it. So far it is quite accurate. Still have to polish up the fills and solo's. But overall, I would say it looks good. Now, the guitar timing tward the middle gets off by a second, but I will repair that tonight, or tomorro.
I have started uploading a crappy vid I took with my cell phone of the reaper preview screen. Vid is terrible, and audio is too. But, it is just to give you something to see what I have been doing for the past 2 weeks. Yes, 2 weeks. Not much done on my part, but I am still learning this great app.
I will post the Vid link here soon as it is done loading up to youtube.
Ok here it is. It is still rendering, be done in 15 min from now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohS-Ni5_RbU
Once the Masters get here, this version will be distroyed. This is a test and a learning job for me. I have been in the music bussiness for 20+ years. So, I do know my way around a board. And Reaper is easy enough. But, The RB addons are what is throwing me off.
