    Probably not many people here who might have this situation but I'll post up with some of my lessons learned doing this work... Having grown up in the days of cassette 4-track recorders, I tried to leverage my Roland D-20 synth workstation to do the most work of bass,keyboards, and drums. A...

    I am trying to use TSE-X50 v2 amp sim plug in and it causes my Reaper to freeze and crash as soon as I attempt to render. Is there anyone who might have some experience or insight to help me out? Thank you very much for your patience.

    My setup is a Focusrite 18i8 with Nuraphones plugged into the headphone jack. The Nuraphones are also bluetooth. Is there a way to use Bluetooth with ASIO? I can connect via bluetooth with the direct driver but the option is not available for the ASIO focusrite driver. Any ideas?

    I own Reaper and it's the only DAW I have used. I've had audio quantizing issues when double tracking guitars and the times I've tried looking into this in the past, it looked like process of quantizing using Reaper was more complicated than compared to Pro Tools (at least as the process was...

    https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/reaper-which-plug-ins-make-difference This was in the latest issue of Sound on Sound. Not sure how much you can read without a subscription. It's a pretty short article though. Not gonna screenshot or quote the whole thing, since you should probably...

    Released last night. GUI refresh including some cool FX bus stuff, evidently fairly significant behind the scenes performance enhancements, and the new skin at least looks pretty slick. I've barely scratched the surface, though.

    Go buy it. SG is a trooper and his vocals for his brief time in Onslaught are some of my favorite ever, not to mention Grim Reaper and Lionsheart. He's lost a little bit of high end, but his voice has still aged way better than most singers from that era. Certainly awesome to see he's still...

    Not sure if this can actully be done but I'll ask anyway. Im currently working on a drum mix for my friend and I's album and he uses Logic although we have the same plugin suite (waves and other stuff). Im wondering if there is a way to export an automation map for things like reverb on a...

    Passing this along so maybe this will help others. Like many of you, I'm using Reaper for my DAW but it's metronome functionality is a little lacking in some ways. You can get more than quarter notes if you trick it using a single tap delay but what if you need something else? I wanted to...

    Just thought this was interesting. Same song, essentially the same mix. One mixed down on Garageband, the other recorded in GB, but exported and mixed down in Reaper. Both "mastered" on Landr. https://soundcloud.com/iron1/salvation-war_dx_5-1-1-1...

    If you use Reaper, what are the top things you wish you knew right off the bat?

    Hi, I'm using Cubase 7 as my DAW which comes with a variety of stock plugins. I remember that the Reaper VST plugins are available for download and can be used with any DAW. Do any of you use them outside of Reaper? Would these add anything to the Cubase stock plugins? I'm still pretty much a...

    Hey guys which DAW is better? Reaper vs Logic Pro X
  16. Music: Recording Studio
    So I'm assuming this is a buffer thing or something, but I'm getting a static from Reaper. I could post clips if need be, but its just a general static-y hum type thing. Its not overpowering the signals or anything, but its there and noticable. I'v been trying every combo of my gear to pinpoint...

    I just got reaper! Yay! Haven't had a chance to use it yet though... Anyone want to recommend some good and thorough YouTube guides for it? Something even a former Audacity user can understand? (No offence lmao)

    https://soundcloud.com/maltese-fan/reaper-test I've been using and old entry level version of Cubase forever. Recorded 2 albums with it. Been wanting to use Reaper, but I've been too lazy to learn a new DAW. Installed it and checked out some videos, which helped a lot. Really digging it, I can...

    I'm trying to figure out how to build tracks of midi using SSD so I can mix each drum sound independently, but I'm not hearing any of the effects that I'm tossing onto the individual midi tracks themselves. The effects are only coming through if I toss them onto the "source" track that has SSD...

    So I've used Reaper DAW software for a couple years now. I hadn't done any recording for quite a while and then tried to record some guitar tracks about 2 weeks ago. I'm hearing my guitar/vocal input with a huge delay. I'm using a 2.3 GH CPU PC Windows 7 w/4 mg ram. Tascam US-122 digital...
