I'm using Reaper (the music software), and would like to make a rap instrumental.
Here is what I know:
- how to use the piano-roll style MIDI entry
- how to set BPM
- a few settings
Here is what I have:
- just the VSTis which came with Reaper
Here is what I want to do:
- find the right (free) VSTi instruments
- understand how to configure them to get a rap-style sound
- understand anything else I need to know to make this sound decent
All the tutorials I can find assume I already have some expertise tweaking synthesizer settings, which I have absolutely none of. Explain like I'm five, because I may as well be.
