Ok so I need to record some metal guitar for a track I’m making. I already have a DSP chain setup for it and it sounds absolutely delicious. (I got carried away and pissed away 45 minutes playing power chords and shit, the tone sounds soooo good.) So here’s ideally what I’d like to do: record guitar in Reaper rewired into Renoise, and have it pass through this DSP chain in Renoise. I’m thinking that last part might not be possible, but I CAN just reconstruct the tone in Reaper if I have to, but the problem I’m running into with that is I can’t figure out how to actually do it.
Unrewired (dewired?) I can do it just fine, just click on input and select it from the dropdown menu under mono. But when it’s rewired, there’s nothing there to select. And it records nothing when I record. So I guess it’s just letting Renoise handle the audio input? I have the right device setup in Renoise and recording samples in Renoise works fine with it. How do I get that into Reaper (so I don’t have to deal with managing a dozen guitar samples that are just big recordings, either multiple instruments for what is actually one instrument or multiple samples in one instrument but having to keep up with the keyzones and shit, and if one sample goes over a pattern length it won’t be triggered if I need to replay the second pattern, etc. etc.)?
