    When I arm a track in Reaper to record, it starts to ‘clip’ and distort.. surely it’s a simple setting issue..?

    Hey guys, For some reason, I can’t seem to get the Axe 3 to record in Reaper properly.. let me explain.. I’ve added a quick clip and some screenshots so that someone can hopefully identify the issue; hopefully it’s something minor. For the first 10 seconds, it’s normal playing, and everything...

    Reaper as DAW replacement?

    Hey, It seems like there are quite a few Reaper users on this forum. After using Studio One, Ableton and Maschine for general recording purposes my band brought the idea up to use reaper as the main DAW for the band.

    FAS Drivers being funky with Reaper

    So recently I made the switch from Ableton and Logic over to Reaper (I got a windows PC) and for the most part it is working brilliantly. Everything is set up in a nice logical way and it is easier than easy to do all the things in Reaper that I'm used to from Logic. However, I have an...

    I started on Cakewalk in the 90's. I tried Cubase in the interim then migrated to Logic several years ago.

    Axe FX II and Reaper help?

    Hello, I can't seem to get the Axe to show in the Devices menu under the ASIO driver. I think all the drivers installed correctly, no problems with Axe edit or anything else. Anyone else have this problem in Reaper? I would certainly appreciate any help.
