An experimental project converter from Audacity to Reaper

Audacity to Reaper project converter

This is an experimental converter which reads Audacity project files (.aup), and converts them to Reaper project files (.rpp). Audio data saved by Audacity (ProjectName_data containing .au files) is also included in this process, and gets converted to .wav.


It uses Python 3.6 and has no external dependencies.


  • I'm primarily doing this for fun, as I realized both softwares used fairly simple formats to store their data
  • It might be useful for people wanting to switch to Reaper. Maybe.

How to use

You need to install Python 3.6 or later. Then you can use it from the command line, for example:

python myProject.aup
