REAPER : Saving a Render Queue

TL;DR – REAPER render queues are saved in your appdata folder. 

Here’s the situation – You’ve got a 14 album track you’re recording for a client. You meet up every week or two to record some tracks, a little bit on everything. They want to listen to their renders at home after every session to decide on their takes. This takes up an extra 30-60 minutes after every session.


This was the situation I found myself in, and hated the wasted time. The internet came up dry as for solution to this timesink. After asking questions around some forums, it was a user off of Reddit that provided the solution. u/pluginram

If you don’t already know about the render queue, see my previous article on how to start using it. The problem I was running into, was the render queue clears items as they are rendered. To render all 14 files again, I would need to individually open, and queue each track.

However… These render items save as .rpp files in your user appdata folder. See path below.

C:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\REAPER\QueuedRenders


These files can be copied and pasted elsewhere, to keep them safe from erasing scythe of REAPER.


You’re now safe to render, with a safe copy of your render settings. Note that if you change save paths or names, your renders will still attempt with the old settings.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you’ve found this helpful. Keep on Rock and Rolling.
