Your best bet with achieving this effect solely with Reaper is to use multiple (background) projects. Move the audio track to a separate tab. Make sure that you have following options ticked: Run background projects Play stopped background projects with active project *Synchronize play start times w/ play background projects** Then in the new (background) ...

In Reaper, you can view controller data in the MIDI editor. To open the editor, right click on the MIDI track you wish to view and select Built-in MIDI editor->Open in editor. In the MIDI editor there is a drop down list in the lower left corner. Select 64 Hold Pedal (on/off). You should see the sustain pedal controller data in the bottom portion of ...

I'm not sure of any way to easily do that in the program. However, since the project files are simply text it should be easy enough to write a program to parse the file and create markers to match the items. Each item starts with the position property. <ITEM POSITION 234.73069114906761 When adding a marker through the UI, you would see a dialog like ...

When I need to do spectral repair I separate that section of audio, use my special key-command, it makes a copy of that section as a new file, and opens it in RX standalone. The trick is to make RX your default external editor. Then in the mouse modifiers section setup 'open item copy in external editor'. I think mine is control+option+command+double-click....

Ah! Here's a good answer from someone who had the same frustration as I experienced:

Sounds like you're looking for an arpeggiator. With some plugins, you can either program a step-sequenced arpeggio, which triggers on a MIDI note event. These will mostly be atonal/chromatic, and won't necessarily adhere to any scales that you're using. There may be some that have this intelligence however.

What you're looking for is incredibly hard to implement. Filters always have a slope measured in dB/Octave or dB/Decade and it's a measure of the attenuation of frequencies beyond the cutoff frequency. This slope can never be vertical so frequencies next to each other can never be completely isolated. To increase the slope, we normally stack multiple filters....

In FM8 set your operator ratio to zero and then specify a fixed offset frequency of the required frequency. If in doubt look in the manual how to do this. You can probably do your MIDI filter in Reaper, but it is not software I use so I can't be sure.

Recording software like Reaper can generally record as many channels of audio as the device they're using supports. If the device defined in Reaper's audio preferences only has stereo inputs, then that's all you're getting. If the device has eight inputs, then Reaper can record eight channels. You need to give Reaper (for example, could be any recording ...

Steinberg Nuendo has been around for years - it's basically Cubase with a video bias. I've used it for film foley work and it's been great. Expensive, however.

Edicue/ ediprompt should be able to do what you need. There are other software options out there as well that I cant think of at the moment. A Rythmoband solution might be worth looking into also. I'm not sure if it or the other choices will work with Reaper. Dubbing and ADR can go smoothly and quickly when everyone is prepared, organized and ready to ...

Standard practise these days is to use the sequencer to provide the throughput to the correct out, which saves nasty doubling & chasing round in circles to find what went wrong. I don't know Reaper, so don't know where that routing might be. a quick Googling provided this info… You must click the IO button on the track and select the proper Midi ...

You're not approaching this in the right way. By doing this "iterative normalization" you will be basically changing gain with little to no crossfade between the regions. This is not going to give you a natural sounding result. Sure an overall gain reduction may be necessary, but the initial recording should have enough headroom so that you can process the ...

I know this is a little late to post but I couldn't find a comprehensive answer for this question anywhere else online. So, I'm posting what worked for me here. Okay this is how I setup my system so that everything plays through a single device and background sounds like YouTube or MP3s are able to play while Reaper is running. This worked for me on both ...

This answer worked for me (windows 10). I haven't yet tested it on a heavy project, but it's enough to get other audio inputs like a browser to be audible. I believe that the asio4all driver can only play sound from one application at a time. ... However there is a simple answer if you just want to play youtube videos and play along with reaper at ...

Advanced software in Windows 7 is able to specify the playback device to use and thus will get routed based on a choice. Any software that is not able to choose a device on it's own will automatically be routed to the default audio device according to the options under Sounds in Control Panel. If you update the default sound device to be the headphones and ...

I'm not really familiar with Reaper, but just tried it out with a short clip and it seems to work. This is not a real automatic way, and if you need to do this often this might not be suitable. Instructions are for the Mac, but PC function naming should be similar. Go to the place where you want to start the tempo change (place the playhead there). Click ...

Reaper can set the tempo at any point during the song, or smoothly transition from one tempo to another over a fixed amount of time. Use the Time Signature/Tempo Change option from the Insert menu, and to gradually move the tempo from the BPM of the section you mixed in from to the BPM of the section you will mix to, just use the Gradually transition tempo ...

You need the VST loaded in the track's FX list. MIDI data in REAPER tracks passes through the FX, and there needs to be some plugin there to interpret the MIDI and produce sounds, which are then passed to the track's output. This is true for any VST instruments in REAPER, not just Studio Drummer. Don't forget to check that the track monitoring is set ...

Hi, You can download the free trial from the Reaper website and try that everything that you need works. I think Reaper is one of the best things to come around in the DAW market. The only thing that would make it even better would be if the source code was open to enable community driven development. But as a DAW, it's the one that's constantly resolving ...

You can do this, I think, using Mac OS X's aggregate audio devices. Some advice on how these work and how you can set one up is found at the following links: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1215?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US http://www.loopblog.net/tutorials/studio-and-gear/studio-techniques/use-multiple-audio-interfaces-on-mac-os-x/ The Reaper Blog says ...

You'll have to export stems for him. Or a whole bunch of consolidated audio files of each track. I use REAPER as well and if I was doing something like this I'd look at doing stems. Something along the lines of: - Dialogue - Atmos - Foley - SFX (possibly multiple stems here depending on the complexity of your design) - Music I'd ask him what he would like ...

REAPER user here. As far as I know REAPER doesn't have this function, unfortunately. Create a request on the forum and they might create it for you though! I know I'd use it too!

I'm not really in on Reaper, but I've noticed that Macprovideo.com has been putting out a bunch of series on that and they're pretty cheap. I don't think it's mac specific, they've just combined with askvideo.com for stuff. Wish I could help with the actual issue, but if you're a Reaper user, figured you'd want to know.
