Before you start recording, you need to set up your inputs. Whether you have a usb interface, a usb microphone, or just want to use your computer's built-in systems, REAPER's device preferences can accomodate your needs. In this video, Brian Block will show you how to set up your inputs so that you are ready to record live audio.
- [Voiceover] For this chapter, we're going to be…using this sample project and as you can see…this project is already set up and has a number…of tracks with media items.…Let's take a listen.…I'm just gonna move my play head over here to where…the sound starts and then press play.…Remember you can also press the space bar to play and stop.…(bass drum thumping)…It sounds pretty good, but I think we could really…spice it up with some additional layers.…
So the goal of this chapter would be to add more…to this piece by recording live audio, midi,…and importing pre-recorded media files.…We'll start with recording, but before we do that…we have to set up our inputs.…First things first, we need to choose what device…we'll be using to record with and by device I mean…are using a USB interface, a USB microphone,…or are we just using the built-in inputs on the computer?…Whichever one we're using, we need to…open up Preferences and choose it.…That way Reaper will know what device it needs…to listen to when we start recording.…
