I am totally new at this recording thing.
I have done loads of reading and I want to actually dive into this.
I have a pretty basic interface, Reaper, and EZDrummer
I also picked up a few of the LePou plugins for guitar.
My computer is a Win7 box with 4GB of ram and an AMD 64-Bit quad core.
First problem, I have reaper and EZDrummer but I have no Idea how to get them working together. I have them installed but I cant seem to find EZDrummer in my VST list
Can you guys give me some pointers?
Preferences > VST
I'm not sure how it's done on Windows, but EZDrummer should install in a path there - or some .dll file, at least. Try a Re-Scan in that same preferences pane, and see if it picks it up.
To add EZD, You want to Track > Insert Virtual Instrument on new track.
That said - grab an 8GB kit from crucial.com like, nowish. Memory is stupid cheap and makes a monster difference in recording, especially on Windows.
