10 Best Reaper Themes
Costing only $60 for the individual license, Reaper is a force to be reckoned with in the pro audio circuit lately. With insane track routing options, customizability, VST plugin support, and both a 32 bit and 64 bit version, it’s well worth every penny of that $60 price tag.
Reaper gathers it’s name from the acronym for Rapid Environment for Audio Prototyping and Efficient Recording, and that all holds up under scrutiny once you’ve started working with the DAW. It’s highly customizable, allowing a myriad of color options, dynamic display options, and modular placement of items in the workflow area. This all comes together to make an interface that molds to what you’re working on.
For example, you can set different environments up for different purposes. You can have a theme for composing music, a theme for editing music to video, etc… We decided to do our first piece about Reaper (but certainly not the last) and focus on the themes that are offered and show you some of our favorites.
Installing A Theme
- Download the theme you want to install.
- If it’s a compressed folder, you need to extract it.
- Once extracted, drag and drop the extracted theme right into Reaper.
- The theme should change over immediately.
- If you want to change to any different themes (or back to default) go to the top menu and select Options > Themes > And then select which theme or default you want to use.
Now that we’ve covered how to install a theme, we’re going to show you some of our favorites.
Probably our all time favorite, this theme is ideal for large monitor setups and has a certain refinement in the design. It’s a great theme, and we thoroughly enjoy working on it. You can download it here.
