Hello,

is there a way to use vst effects only for a certain section in reaper, or do I have to use another track?
It would also be nice to know how to pan a track only in a certain section, this would make things much easier.
Don't know if Reaper contains such features, but tell me what you know.

regards,
Skalde

You can use reapers automation functions to change parameters in real time - you could turn the effect up for the chorus or whatever, then turn it down at the end. Its a little complex to explain in a quick post but the help in reaper is pretty good.

However, if it were me, I would have 2 different tracks, one for the chorus and one for the rest. In this day and age with unlimited tracks and simple cut and paste, its a lot easier to set your mix up in advance and keep it as static as possible, so I prefer to do it this way to using automation - I would reserve that for an effect or level that really needs to be ridden throughout the entitre song rather than something that is off or on like this.
