Sends in Reaper
This is my first post after being a bit of a lurker, so it's nice to finally post haha. Anyways, before I got an interface I was using a mic run through a little Behringer mixer, and I plugged a set of headphones into that for monitoring, everything hardware based. I just picked up a Tascam US-1800, and I'm a little confused how to send the tracks in reaper to the interface for my headphones.
At my buddies house, using Pro Tools, I just assigned the track an output on the interface, and everything worked great. Had volume control, panning, etc. However, when I do this in reaper, I'm not able to hear anything. After fiddling around a little bit, I hit the record monitor button, and I can hear my track, but it comes out of all the outputs, and I can't mix volumes for headphones.
Is there something i'm overlooking?
You have to think a bit more analog. Create a group bus, mix via the sends and assign the group to an output. Either that or you can send to groups of aux channels, assign those to outputs and mix using either the Tascam mix software or by routing to a hardware mixer.
