Okay guys I'm trying to simply make Reaper run faster for this slow computer that I have at home so I can start getting decent quality for my ideas.
Now I'm running S2.0, POD Farm 2, Recabinet3, EZMix, and Reapers EQ and XComp!
Basically what I usually do is record the rhythm guitars (left and right) and right click Apply FX as a new take, but when I do that it robs my tone but I have to do that for my computer. I run two bass tracks too, to achieve the correct tone that I'm going for. One clean, one distorted, now when I try and right click, apply FX to a new take it sounds HORRID so I have to leave the VSTs in which is a bummer. And Superior Drummer now I have to EQ a lot of stuff to make my kit sound SOMEWHAT the way I want it to!
So in conclusion what can I do to make the right-click apply FX as a new take sound better and not ROB my tone and other various tweaks or themes that make Reaper run faster!? Could I start running Linux with all these VSTs and Superior Drummer!?
Heres a mix test I did
