Individual Track I/O with Reaper

    Hi there. I've been using a demo of reaper recently and have found it wonderful, but can't seem to figure out if separate tracks can have individual I/O.

    One of the helpful things I found in Sonar was that each track had its own I/O, and Reaper has only two inputs/outputs from the preferences menu. (Trying to switch over to reaper, sonar lags and crashes too much)

    I have a m-audio delta 1010lt sound card to record with and I don't honestly use midi all that much. I want to be able to have at least 5 tracks having separate I/O so I can record drums, and have each track to a microphone.

    have you gone into the setting to set up your interface? Most DAWs have some configuration before you get rolling. You can always refer to the manual. Also, make sure you have selected the correct ASIO device. Namely M-Audio ASIO. ASIO Multimedia or Full Duplex refers to your onboard soundcard.

    ahh yes, got the problem resolved by some people on the Reaper website's forum. but thank you =). it was just unclear on some of the wordings that the program itself used.

    The PDF manual is most excellent. So excellent I bought the nice big spiral bound edition to flip through. The routing & grouping feature is nearly as good as the RME TotalMix gui and is my primary method of assigning track and master i/o.

    the pdf for reaper? or the 1010lt?

    The pdf for Reaper. The 1010 is not very good generally by today's standards.

    I'll have to look at the manual more once I buy the full version of the program. But the 1010lt is just a start for me. I already had a pretty good computer and a behringer mixer, so people on another forum suggested the 1010lt for a low-budget beginning to recording. I've been told external interfaces are better. And for a start, I must say it's been doing much better than anything I had before. =) but when i get money, another upgrade will be seen I think.

    Internal interfaces (or internal with break out box) are the best for latency and stability. It's just that particular line from M-Audio is quite old technology. It will work fine to learn some basics with. That said, firewire or the future envisioned Thunderbolt interfaces are where you get most of your in/out bang for the buck without spending a small fortune on converters.

    Yeah, I looked at firewire and I know some people who have it, but it was too expensive at the time, for the mixers I was looking at. Plus I wanted a mixer that I could also use for live performances, so it seemed like the way to go in order to save some money.

    but did you mean there were better interfaces from a different company? or that m-audio has better things out now for internal cards?

    There are much much better interfaces than anything by M Audio even today.
