Default Controlling another DAW using REAPER via OSC or MIDI

Hi there,

I'm currently trying to setup REAPER to try and control Harrison Mixbus via OSC or MIDI.

I have tried setting this up but can't seem to get it working as intended, I'm trying to control the mixer EQ controls in Mixbus via REAPER track controls assigned to MIDI CC messages.

I was wondering whether it's possible to do this via OSC or MIDI and what I have to do to set this up properly?

I've attached screenshots to this post.

I am using LoopMIDI for virtual MIDI ports and am open to using Reastream too, if it works.

Thanks in advance for the help!

You can do this with ReaRoute. This video will walk you through it:

Best of luck!

Hi there,

Thanks for your reply!

I ended up using this video to get audio routed from REAPER to Mixbus and back. It doesn’t show the use of MIDI or OSC to control Mixbus from REAPER though.

Do you have any other suggestions perhaps?

Thanks again!

I don't. Since you can control each DAW with the other one through this method, I assumed maybe your CC controls in Reaper would automatically apply to Mixbus. Is this not the case?

Unfortunately both the DAWs act independantly of one another when using Rearoute, as it's just using asio ins and outs going from one DAW to another. So only audio is passed back and forth, rather than MIDI CC or OSC messages.
