Did you know you can setup shortcuts to ANY of your plugins in REAPER?
This thing is actually life-changing. Not only for the speed but also mindset-wise!
How to set shortcuts
In the FX list, you can right click any plugin and select Create shortcut... then enter whatever key you want that plugin be assigned to.
I like to set all of my most used plugins to my number keys. So I just need to press one key to bring anything I want up!
Since we are in the topic, there's a huge added benefit to this.
Having a few go-to plugins beats having hundreds of plugins in your list. Any day. Especially if you know your plugins like the back of your hand.
So you can use this chance to go through your sessions, see what plugins you use most and write them down. Then set a spot in your keyboard for it.
Also, DELETE all the rest. For real. You don't need 20 compressors. You can even sell some of your iLok licenses on facebook!
This will pay off so well and you will get things done super fast with the least amount of friction as it should be.
