    Is it worth running VEPro without a slave? (building orchestral template in Reaper)

    Short version: Will I notice a big performance boost by using VEPro to host all my instruments, (for a large orchestral template in Reaper) even without having a slave PC? Or should I not bother with VEPro until I can afford a slave? Longer version: Been trying to put together an orchestral...

    Making Generative Music In Reaper

    I explained some of the processes involved in how I made a livestream of Brian Eno's Discreet Music. I also show how you can make it more complex (have to watch 'til the end...sorry). I think I was too close to the mic. I hate hearing my nose whistle.

    What can I expect from (Cubase, Studio One) a new DAW?

    So atm I'm using Reaper and have been fairly happy with it. I wonder what switching to another DAW like Cubase or Studio One could bring. One thing I really like doing when working with Kontakt is routing from (pure) MIDI tracks to one instance of Kontakt and then route the audio to seperate...

    REAPER: Can I use the MIDI keyboard somehow instead of dragging MIDI notes to the correct pitch?

    If the question isn't clear enough, I hope to clear this up here. Say I want to "perform" a drum part in, but I can't perform a triplet on a single key of the keyboard so I use multiple octaves top get the right rhythm, but then I need to correct the high octave to match. Normally I'd click and...

    Kontakt's CPU usage doesn't go down.

    Hi, I have recently added to my Kontakt library the Beard Blade Toolkit (v1.3) and the Monster Sanctuary toolkit (v1.3).

    SOLVED: When I play stuff in at 100 BPM, I manually have to move notes afterwards

    I'm not a very good keyboard player, so I play things in at a slower speed (100 BPM typically). But then, when I set the BPM back to let's say 135, there's too much space between each note in my recorded notes. Like this: The notes to the right are how they look when I've played things...

    Reaper: How to apply track FXs to source media ?

    Hi. I was wondering: does someone know a way to quickly apply track FX(s) to the source medias, in Reaper ? Or anything to the equivalent effect. The result I'd like is for the source medias to already contain the effect, while keeping all the editing I've done in the track.

    How to route outboard inserts in Reaper ?

    Hi. What is your prefered way of inserting analog gear in a track's signal path in Reaper ? (like a compressor, an EQ, or what have you) My own solution is quite unsatisfying: I disable the track's 'parent send' and route it to an hardware output. Then I create another track and arm record in...

    Mass Routing in Reaper

    It's possible in Reaper to route multiple tracks to a new channel at a time, however by default they all go to channels 1/2. Would anyone know if there is a way to route all these tracks at once to say 3/4, 5/6, etc. instead of having to change all channels individually?

It's very powerful. Now...
