Reaper Tutorial: Getting Started With Midi

Posted by Ms.Tris On June - 25 - 2009

Good Morning All! I always miss you all when I am unable to post. As usual if I am not here, I am busy with sessions and music business. This week and last have been very full which is a good thing.

Today all the hardware is on. Honestly I am still trying to get my hardware midi situation to run properly. Right now there are a few delay issues when recording midi using the Mpc.

I figured I’d try a different approach and record midi data into Reaper using the Mpc as the controller.

I know how to use vst instruments which is pretty easy to do in Reaper. Now I need to get my hardware synths to do the same.
I’ll watch this video in a few minutes, on my quest to quickly get the hardware midi going smoothly! Enjoy…

Getting Started With Midi and Reaper

I also found a cool link with pictures for those who need to set up hardware midi connections:

We will get back to regular post starting Wednesday of next week. I’ll stop in periodically to answer comments and post more music finds..

Happy Beat Making To All
Pz Til Later!~

    Now i have my mpc midi to reaper but i use the mpc as the sequencer and the Neko as the controller & it works flawless! i have had problems tryna get reaper to quantize my notes right, but i know the mpc could do that easily. plus if you go to reaper in the sequencer templates there is one for the mpc (as master & as slave) check it out if you haven’t already.

    Hey Dukeyman..WOW I didn’t know about the Mpc template.. I will check this after my sessions today! I’m still trying to get the midi to quantize correctly in the Mpc..that’s the only reason I don’t use the Mpc for sequencing…

    Thanks for the tip let me know when you want that feature..would really love to get you on the Neko with the Mpc hook up??..
