In many Mac computers (not just the MacBook Air M1), the loudspeakers and the headphone output are "presented" to DAWs as two different audio interfaces. As long as the headphone port is not used, the headphone audio interface is not active/available. Some DAWs, like Nuendo/Cubase, are a bit better at dealing with this (see included image).

So, if you intend to use your headphones with Reaper, better to connect them before opening Reaper.
