Okay, I have a TonePort UX2, I'm tired of the Line 6 tones and decided to try out some of the free VST plugins floating around. I can get a great tone with VSTs and Impulses, but I can't figure out how to apply the effects in a way I can monitor them as I'm recording.
As it stands now, I'm using the TonePort with the bypass turned on and can record a raw guitar track into reaper, and when I play it back the effects are applied and I can tweak them from there.
Is there any way to do this in Reaper where the effects are live and I can at least hear the distortion tones as I'm recording?
Click the circled button(s). It'll turn on live monitoring.
