Ever seen one of those videos where they slow down a famous song to like 800%? Where it gets so slooow that it starts to sound like an ambient pad, sometimes VERY creepy but sometimes quite soothing?
Well, it’s now natively possible in REAPER to get this kind of sound and it’s so muuuch fun!
Check it out:
How to do it:
- Double click on the item you want to stretch to open the media item properties window.
- In the dropdown list of stretching modes, select <key>Rrreeeaaa<key> – you also get a bunch of options that you can play with next to it.
Now that your item is set to <key>Rrreeeaaa<key> stretching mode, you can stretch it as much to get that sound!
💬 By the way: to stretch an item, press <key>Alt<key> while dragging the left or right corner of the item.

I highly suggest checking out my good friend IDDQD’s video. He went super in-depth with all the possibilities you have with this new stretching mode!
I've been having a lot of fun with this and I am using it to create some ambiences in my songs~
Have you tried it yet? What do you use it for?
