When increasing playback rate of items in Reaper, there is a chunk of extra time left over that you want to get rid of. Here is one technique for accurately removing the extra time after increasing the playback rate of an audio item (or items).

(When importing audio using the “Import Audio” custom action, it will prompt you to insert a marker – this is where you can input the “stop” command marker, which is “!1016” [without the quotation marks])
