Its been a few years since I’ve tried this so I’d appreciate any help please. I used to compose tracks in Renoise with VST instruments and then record audio (vocals or guitar) with Reaper. I can’t remember how to set this up.
It was a really powerful setup - I had it working with Cubase SX 3 as well - I could loop a sequence in Renoise and do multiple recording takes with Cubase/Reaper.
From memory, I used to start Reaper first, then when I’d start Renoise it would ask me if I wanted to use Rewire. That doesn’t happen anymore.
I’m using Reaper 5.80/x64 and Renoise 3.1.0 x64 on Windows 7 x64.
Can somebody please help me get this working again?
Update: I always start figuring things out as soon as I ask somebody else for help.
This is a good start, here’s what I did:
Start Reaper - Renoise is not running
“Insert new track”
Click on FX button on track
This will display the FX window…
Select ReWire: Renoise. This will automatically start Renoise.
Load whatever project you have with your VSTs and you should be able to record audio at the same time your VSTs play.
