It depends exactly how it’s set up on the Reaper side because the VCV patch looks ok (provided you actually are passing in MIDI).
In Reaper I drag from a track’s “I/O” box to the track I want to record into then a dialog box appears and I choose no audio and usually on the MIDI side ‘ALL > 1’ if I want all the MIDI mapped to one channel (in this case channel 1).
But you could leave the MIDI send as All > All if you have multiple incoming midi channels and are happy for all that MIDI in the same track. I’d rather set up separate MIDI tracks for the discrete channels like below so that everything received on channel 1 goes to channel 1.
Then arm the receiving track for recording. Not at my pc right now, but that should work.
Edit: Just got in front of my PC. There is something else you need to do if you want to record MIDI into a track.
Right click on the track and select Record: Output >> Record: output (MIDI)
that will force it to record whatever MIDI that comes from the track. Very useful if you also use any MIDI effects on that incoming MIDI e.g. a JS:MIDI script that transposes it or forces it to a scale.
ah i know what you’re sayin about the red gate line.
the way it’s set up in the picture (using CV on the gates) is how i’m laying down variable note lengths. If triggers from Seq3 are used, all the notes will be the same length in relation to the Tigger pulse time.
But it’s fiddly going into negative voltages. you’re right should have demonstrated somthin’ more like this:
you don’t show what you feed Merge with,
but you try to send the notes and the gates both from Merge to Reaper,
for this you need two separate merge modules, one for the notes (1V/Oct) and one for the gates
Wow! Thanks so much everyone! I am well on my way! I was definitely missing the Record: Output thing, @main.tenant - thanks for that!. I swapped that over from Input and have a beautiful stream of midi coming from VCV. I am sure you’re right about splitting Trigger & Gate, @rsmus7.
Thanks, all, for taking the time to help a brother out. Very much appreciated!
