For this, I use SWS "LiveConfigs and I did some small special purpose JSFXes.

A friend of mine uses Reaper for live playing all available SWAM instruments with a real Wind Controller ("EWI"). For him, I did a set of JSFXes that allow to control "LiveConfigs" (and other Midi Instruments' sound switching) via keyboard shortcuts in a very versatile way (including setting up set lists for a gig; see -> ).

Another friend of mine is about to start to sell a Midi to DMX (and other interfaces) hardware box ("ADMX2"), bundled with a lot of JSFXes that allow Reaper to be used for very sophisticated and easily synced to a music production stage lighting automation (and much more cool stuff).

Reaper decently rocks !
