Default UAD Apollo ASIO drivers incompatible with Reaper (FIXED)

Hello all. Long time Reaper user, long time Reaper forum lurker, first time poster.

I have been using Reaper with a 1st generation UAD2 Apollo 8 interface for a couple years now. In the latest update to UAD software, my Apollo can now run properly with Thunderbolt in my Windows 10 environment with the new Consol 2.0, which is fantastic and all except for one pretty big issue: The ASIO drivers are not recognized by Reaper.

UA lists this as a known issue in the latest software release notes so I contacted their tech support about the issue and got the following (excerpted) reply:

Quote:
The issue with the Apollo Thunderbolt ASIO driver and Reaper is that Reaper places a character limit on the names of the ASIO drivers that can be used within the application. Reaper only accepts ASIO drivers that are 32 characters or less, and the name of our Apollo Thunderbolt ASIO driver just barely exceeds that limit.

We do plan on shortening the driver name in a future software release to comply with the character limits in these DAWs, however for the time being there is no known workaround. Note that this issue does not exist in any of our tested DAWs such as Pro Tools, Ableton Live, and Cubase. You may want to check with Cockos to see if they know of any way to bypass Reaper's character limit on driver names.
Is anyone else having this issue? And does anyone have any suggestions on how Reaper can either accomodate a longer ASIO driver name or how one could modify an ASIO driver to be less than 32 characters? UA is great but I imagine this issue isn't super high priority. In the mean time, I can only use Reaper with WDM which is not ideal.

I'd appreciate any insight into fixing this issue. Thanks!
(also, I apologize if this is in the wrong section on the forum. I used my best judgement)

Thanks for the report. We should be able to correct this for the next REAPER release.

The prerelease build is available with this fix. It would be great if you could test it!

5.29pre7 with the fix is here. If you do test and have any positive or negative feedback, please post in that thread, not this one.

General information about prerelease builds is here.

i finally got a moment to give this a try. It works - I can use the new Apollo ASIO drivers with Reaper! Thanks for getting this into a pre-release build so quickly.

Great! Would you mind responding to whoever you have been communicating with at UAD to let them know the issue will be fixed in REAPER 5.29, which will probably be officially released in about a week?
