I've been meaning to do this forever, but I haven't gotten around to it. I want to find some solutions to improve my workflow by assigning actions in Reaper to my midi controllers faders, knobs and so on. I.e. "volume", "pan", but more specific...

I know how to go about most of it in setting up channels, program changes and so on. However, I thought I'd ask if you guys have any suggestions or tips as to what your faders, knobs and such specifically are set up to do.

I have 3x8 faders, 3x8 knobs, 3x8 buttons, 4x16 MPC pad banks as well on my MPK88. Then my FCB1010 footswitch that I usually use to switch between guitar presets (or tracks) and my small LPK25. I've most likely missed some of the controls here, but I'd say there are quite enough to do a bit of this and that. And of course these can all run on midi channel 1 through 16, so there are plenty of room.

I would like to hear your suggestions beyond just "use a knob for pan" or "use a fader for volume", but maybe more detailed "i.e. fader 1 controls volume on track 1 in a project, and the S1 button turns on/off bypass of effect 1 on the track". Of course you don't have to write a novel about it all, but I just kinda want to get the ball rolling as to what I could set up.

Here's a list of all the actions, but it's a bit much looking through 10000+ actions to find the useful ones:

A brain storming of ideas could just look like this:

Track # volume
Track # pan
Selected Track pan/volume
Zoom/Full Screen in midi editor
Humanize midi
Volume on a group track (i.e. to control volume of all guitars at the same time with a fader)

...and I'm sure the list of suggestions could be very long, as Reaper (with the SWS extension) has more than 10000 programmable actions.

Maybe you have an idea of what I could use a fader/knob/button for. Anything goes, as I'll just see if it's usable for me smile.gif

Hey all cool.gif

As you might have seen in the discussion about the next collaboration, we came to the idea of trying something run by Kris and a student-run collaboration that I will run. Then we can evaluate on the process as we go or afterwards. smile.gif

The thread where we discussed this collaboration process can be found here:

This will be new for me too, so I hope you'll bear with me if I stumble around a bit. laugh.gif



Student Edition.

Chorus Section for Motif playing:Attached File  Lonesome_Cowboy_Chorus__No_Motif_.mp3 ( 1.36MB ) Number of downloads: 136

Free Solo Section I:Attached File  Lonesome_Cowboy_Free_Solo_Section_A.mp3 ( 2.23MB ) Number of downloads: 135

Free Solo Section II:Attached File  Lonesome_Cowboy_Free_Solo_Section_B.mp3 ( 1.24MB ) Number of downloads: 145


The chords of the parts are as follows here:

|| D | A | Bm | D | G | Bm | F#m | A F#7 ||

Free Solo Section I:
|| Bm | Bm | A | A | G | G | D | D | Bm | Bm | F#m | F#m | G | G | Asus2 | A7 ||

Free Solo Section II:
|| A | F#m | Bm | G | A | F#m | G | A7 ||

Here are the suggested scales:
D major (B minor), B minor pentatonic and B minor blues:


I think this will work best if we stay around the original chords and motif and stay somewhat true and close to this, but suggestions for melody lines, harmonies, vocal ideas, lyrics... they're all welcome of course. cool.gif

Here you have the tab for the motif:

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! I will also try to provide thoughts, feedback and such as we go smile.gif


For reference here is the example track I posted in the discussion thread. This includes some place-holding lyrics:


My first request:

If someone wants to record a bass-line, that would be pretty cool. Here's the Guitar Pro file with a suggested bassline:

...also classical piano music. Now, that in itself is less strange, but lately my interest has wandered off to lesser known composers, rather than the more famous ones in Chopin, Bach, Beethoven and so on, and this channel has some great ones:

Some of the Russian composers are really great, even if it's waltz and foxtrots, which is something I never thought I'd venture into. Yuri Slonov has some very melancholic and nostalgic pieces that send me longing for different times:

What is something that might surprise people that you listen to? smile.gif

If you're looking to buy me a couple of christmas presents, these are the ones you should get me!

What guitar would you like that is NOT considered something "classic"? I.e. NOT an SRV strat, Kirk Hammett ESP, Jimmy Page Les Paul etc.
Something "unusual", even if it's a famous brand. Show me! cool.gif
