Question on Reeper DAW

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm using ReAPer to record tunes. This is my current set-up.

Gtr >> Line6 amp >> PC Line-In >> ReAPer (record) >> Mini Hi-Fi input >> Headphones

The amp settings are used to get the gtr efx tones that I want and its heard when I play & record.

I'd like to try it this way now:

Gtr >> PC Line-in >> ReAPer (record) >> Mini Hi-Fi input >> Headphones

and use the ReAPer VST plug-ins for the guitar efx.

But when I do it this way, I will not be able to hear the gtr tone with the VST efx added in real-time.

All I'll get is a clean gtr sound. And it takes the 'fun' out of playing.

Hope that make sense. I've search the help docs but cant find anything on it or maybe I didnt search hard enuff or that its just futile.

Anyway is there a function in ReAPer that allows me to hear the gtr tone with the VST efx added WHILE I play & record?

Hope seasoned ReAPer users can shed some light.

Tks :)

Tks OldG!

Found it (looked at the wrong place initially)

So thats what its called; record monitoring.

Latency is a problem tho when using this recording method. :(

I've already got ASIO installed and when I record the old way, there are no problems with latency.

Honestly, the guitar tones sounds way better & cleaner with record monitoring i.o. thru the amp.

... but how do you get around this latency thing?

You should be able to get latency down by using http://www.asio4all.com/ as your soundcard driver - you have to tell Reaper to use in as input/output in options>peferences>.audio>device. Using the asio4all control panel - lower the samplerate until you have the lowest latency without glitches.

Good Luck

Got the latency down yes but works for 01 track only.

As soon as I add another track, it goes haywire!

I think the PC needs a hardware upgrade :(

Well, back to the old ways I suppose.

Thanks for the tips OldG
