This guide will provide a quick walkthrough on how to setup your M-Audio audio and MIDI devices in Reaper.
Before proceeding, you must install the latest drivers for your device.
2. Select Preferencesfrom the Options menu (PC) or the Reaper menu (Mac)
3. Select Device under the Audio section
4. Click the dropdown menu for Audio System and choose ASIO (PC Users only)
Note: Reaper may identify your M-Audio device by Series (USB, FW/FireWire, Delta), and not by name.
6. To enable an M-Audio USB MIDI device, click MIDI Devices.
8. Click OK
Reaper is now configured to use your M-Audio audio and MIDI devices. Connect your speakers or headphones to your M-Audio sound card. You cannot use your computer speakers, or built-in sound card for output.
When recording from a mono sound source such as a single microphone or guitar, it is necessary to select the appropriate mono input to record from.
If your audio interface does not feature hardware direct monitoring, (Audiophile USB, JamLab, Transit), or if you wish to monitor with software effects, you will need to enable Record Monitoring. To enable input monitoring, click on the speaker icon next to the In button (see above). The Record Monitoring button has 3 settings; Monitor Off, Monitor On, and Auto.
* This tutorial was created using Reaper 3.301, however, the setup procedure may be similar for other versions of Reaper. For more information on configuring and recording with Reaper, please consult the Reaper User Guide or the Reaper Forum.
