I thought i’d be the one to start this topic off since I am soo close to having these two amazing tools fully synchronised. How are you using REAPER with Rack?
I do all my sequencing in Rack and I mix in Reaper pretty much as I go. I used to just dial in the same tempo and record multi-track using VCV Bridge, but recently I have found that using MIDI CC with Bridge with a tempo-synced square LFO parameter modulation in REAPER results in the best clock sync, having tried midi clocks like MIDI-1 and the third-party ones, which don’t work at all well for me.
Now we get to the alterior, selfish motive behind this post : My one remaining issue is that for some reason I can’t get Run or Reset messages to work properly. The reset/run message, just a few automation points at the beginning of the track sent via MIDI CC Bridge, seems to work better on a separate port to my audio and my clock, but there is still nearly always a glitchy moment of lag and great anticipation to see just how far off the beat it will end up at the 3rd bar. When i do manage to sync them up
the satisfaction and flow is immense! Does anyone know a work around for this? Maybe a nudge plug-in or something?
I hope I’ve helped spark some ideas and that we can share ideas to use these two amazing programs together to their best potential!
