One of the coolest thing about REAPER is all the processing and tweaking you can do to individual items. You can insert effects, automate volume/pitch/pan, mute, add comments and more!
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to get these handy buttons on top of your items:
1. Go to Preferences > Appearance > Media.
2. In here, you can check the boxes for Not muted, No FX,
No active envelopes or anything else that you'd like to see
like notes, lock or item properties.
You can even add a volume knob!
In the same location as before, just check the box that says Volume knob .
I would also get rid of the handle since we now have this handy knob. At the bottom of the screen where it says Item Volume Handle, select No handle.
Disable resampled media icon
Another thing you may wanna uncheck is Item properties only if resampled media. I don't think it's necessary to have that icon when items are resampled.
