Thanks for the tip. Perhaps Reaper can do anything -- if you can figure it out! I do remember seeing this in an old SOS.

Perhaps this help someone else.

So Reaper 6 is about to impact, meaning I'll probably have to spend the next 2 weeks adapting to it. I'm one of those who makes my bread from this stuff, so Reaper is my breadknife. Reaper started out as something different than that, and still I lack the feeling of security and predictability in work with reaper. It's one of its biggest downsides to me. I've offered to help, but .. guess that's not too popular.

So again, there's a huge list of old problems that - again - won't be addressed. So I'll just go through a bit of a shoot from the hip wishlist:

- Fix the age old 'plugin GUI spawns in bottom of secondary screen' when you got a number of master channel plugins i visible mode.
- Have the horizontal scrollbar actually scroll 1 page when you run the action scroll 1 page. Now it scrolls almost 2 pages.
- Post fader inserts
- Ability to move faders in stepped incr/decr (+/- 1dB at a time, or interval set by user)
- An RMS meter that actually shows good RMS
- A VU meter that actually shows VU
- Send MIDI (to VI) and receive Audio (from VI) on the same channel
- Action for opening GUI of VI from within MIDI editor
- An "Apply" button for the MIDI key snap. Now, when you transpose through drag and drop, the scale snap functions gets applied to every note position you pass from original- to destination note. When you arrive at destination note and drop your melody line there, your melody is all messed up. Instead, apply key snap only in relation to the destination note, with an "apply" button. Otherwise key snap changes the melody for every note you pass.
- Reaverb with true stereo support
- A 'normalize' function for render export
- A folder track with at least a "folder" function (hiding its contents), not just minimizing.
- Ability to create audio clicktrack with custom clicksound
- More efficient take comp editing: If I change focus from one take to another (talking audio now), it can be almost 2-3 seconds before the monitoring switches to the other take (on a fast computer). And there is no visual cue as to when it switches.
- Some kind of easy-to-use control for separate outputs. I got 4 speaker pairs, and I'm getting to them through sending the master out to different buses which goes to each separate output of the interface. Having a panel that says speaker A B [C] D and a marker to show which one is active would be nice. Press one, and the others goes into mute.
- Fix the ancient old problem where the MIDI editor opens focused on an entirely different part of the song than where the locators are.
- Perhaps a function for each plugin instance, which sets however it gets applied both for playback and render, or just for playback and gets bypassed at rendering.
- Ability to change fx presets even for JSFX plugins, from the project FX bay (major drag this one, for me)
- Limit number of project backups or backup sizes, I get to clean the backup dir every day and it's always like several gigabytes large. And I can be without some backup.
- Try and clean up the layout in the tracklist of the MIDI editor. It's so strangely made. And add the ability to edit more than just 1 track at a time.
- Add a 'copy rhythmical quantization from existing MIDI' to the quantization dialog.
- Add presets to the quantisation dialog.
- In render dialog, if the bounds "Time Selection" is selected, then you shouldn't have reaper switch to "Entire project" bound if the user accidentally clicked away the time selection. Instead, if the bounds are set to "Time selection" and there is no time selection, then hit me down a dialog warning about it. But don't stealthily go to rendering the whole shabang without me realizing that this is happening until Its already half way through rendering.
- When loading huge projects, it can take up to a minute sometimes, and I sometimes need to abort the loading. Add an abort loading option.
- Add an option to displace MIDI items in time, without showing the displacement relative to the grid. Often instruments don't sound off right away when you send a MIDI key to it, particularly with samples. I need to see MIDI key down and hear the sound at the same time for my brain to work right. And if I nudge it the way it is now, then I can't use snap when I move the Item together with other MIDI items, because then I'll lose the carefully weighted displacement.

I came to Reaper from Cubase, and this was one of the things I noticed right away. Working in the Cubase MIDI editor felt like gliding on oil compared to in Reaper. Though I'm not sure how to explain it in detail.
It's kindof the same with the difference between Reaper and Sony Vegas video editor. The Vegas editor has got much better response, better snap and the mouse cursor changes to just the right tools when you put the mouse cursor in place for certain edits. Reaper is very much based on the feel/workflow of Vegas, but it's got quite a way to go still when it comes to this. I still got and use Vegas, I use it at least 5 times a month. Reaper is a bit to over-simplistic, too orthodox. It's a great point of origin to start from, but ...

I could sit all night writing this. I used to before, but those lists never got heard. Still, I'm glad Reaper is here. It is almost what I wanted Cubase to be, when it came out in 89.

Happy future #6 everybody, and thank you guys who made it.

Literally this happens ALL the time on Windows. It's embarressing that it's still an issue and ignored. If you're going to insist on using the old school OS window borders fine. But doesnt matter what settings you have for opening floating windows. It's always a shitshow when it comes to "where will my window open THIS time?"

And this doesn't even have anything on the "how will Reaper open startup today? what random arrangement of windows will be open when I load reaper today"?

omg, I'm laughing so I'm crying here. That sentence, I am thinking that sentence out loud in my head easily 20 times a day, all the time, for years. "Okidok, let's see where it will spawn THIS time?"

.. and I will often place a mental bet, like "Perhaps there?". I'm almost always wrong, but a few times I pretty much nailed it, raised my arms and yelled YES!! and people asked me what happened? I blushed, just couldn't say anything, realizing it will be so incredibly stupid and difficult to even explain.

I guess it's a sign that you do something so much that the small quirks of the environment becomes objects of variance and amusement in an otherwise very predictable environment. But it's irritating too, especially when people set next to me and look. Because they will see for example an EQ plugin GUI spawn unnoticeable behind voxengo span window on the secondary screen, and they'll say "Man, why don't you fix it so that the plugins opens center window where you want it?!". To them it's a sign of that I am not a particularly clever or professional person. That stings quite a bit, I'm sure it's an impression of me that sticks with them.

And yes the windows focus thing are a nuisance. You can't really control which window will receive a certain key command, mouse action and macros may or may not work depending on the position you launch them from. It changes all the time depending on the view.

But I've been on Cubase for windows for years before this (and pre-cubase on Atari before that), so I don't feel like I should complain too much. Guess it's my "can't have everything" acceptance attitude.

Regarding that multiple windows - which on top issue I can recommend the AOT tool you can find here on the forum.

But I agree: It shouldn't be a problem in the first place.

Another one for the v6 wishlist:

When the diskspace is full, on the project disk or system disk, plz inform the user of this!

As I understand it, the optional warning is off by default (?), and my warning was off now most likely because of the Reaper update I just did, and the optional warning still doesn't warn you that your track renders or track freezing will result in blank 0 byte files (because there is no discspace) even when optional disc-space warning IS on.

Reaper just keeps working, and (apparently) storing our work, renders, recordings, and the only indication you get that something isn't right, is that the waveforms just 'stops' mid-item, or starts showing up as blank on the most recently recorded items. But this only noticed for files that show up inside of Reaper. If you've made a number of master output renders to wave-files that are not re-imported into Reaper, you won't know that those renders turned out to be just empty shell-files with near 0 byte sizes.

I bet plenty of people will not associate the funky waveformless visual with a full disc, and just keep going on, realizing far later that all their work wasn't even stored. They may even think that the blank items are just a funky redraw discrepancy which the 'Rebuild all peaks' action will fix later on; they just can't be arsed with searching out that action in the actions list right at this very moment.

One may even consider making this kind of warning a hardcoded feature, since people will turn the optional warning dialog off just to be rid of the warning dialog, and then quickly forget they're very close to full disc, and when they discover this, they'll quite likely blame Reaper, say it can't be trusted to professional work and standards etc. It's crazy, I know, but people can be a bit like that.

Default midi learn & range control

I really really hope that the basic functionality of direct, quick midi learn for volume faders will be available finally. Including a window pop-up to control the midi cc range, the behaviour (log vs lin) and the option to assign the same midi fader or knob to multiple controls. And last but not least, a window with a list of all the midi assignments, a bit like the region manager but for midi control.
All of this without the need for a workaround like ReaLearn which I found far from ideal.

Simply :
1. right-click any fader or a knob
2. choose midi-learn
3. window pops up
4. touch midi control knob/fader
5. adjust range and behaviour.
6. List of midi control assignments in the "view" Tab

This seems seems to me to be such a basic feature to implement, considering it has been present in much more limited daw's like ableton for ages. Considering there's already a midi learn functionality for plugin parameters, and that there's a range control on the parameter modulation LFO, I have no idea why these functions aren't available for all of reaper's parameters/knobs/faders

This would be a major improvement in hands-on control functionality : quick fader rides, pan automation, precise eq rides without the need for large and/or expensive midi controller surfaces.

I know many of you are going osc, motorised surfaces or touch pads, but I (and I like to presume I'm not the only one) am still stuck with simple midi controllers and don't like ipad's/touch surfaces for daw control.

Toolbar actions for:

1, selecting specific block size (change buffer size to 128, 256, 512, etc. with one click)

and

2, Saved Render presets to enable choosing specific rendering application with the click of a button.

Reaper 6?
Track grouping: For editing, drawing any automation & fades.

One day it will catch up with Protools from 1989...
(Reaper is 30 years behind in track grouping !)

Track grouping for drawing automation is non existent !!!!!

Reaper 6? - make it Pro - unleash track grouping.
The year is 2019.

I'd be happy with just having dB level readouts by default on every track. Total oversight just relying on a colorful bar showing levels. Where is the dB readout on each track? Le sigh. More hacking I guess. Gotta make more themes to make up?

i would love to see better default settings and >>hotkeys<<,


just look at ableton 10.1


i'm in love with in depth scirpts and really customizable of almost every operation
but if default hotkeys will be remade (there could be popup in first opening of v6)

>>collaborations will be easier<<
and have multiple people working on one computer / project

right now reaper is very personal, and each copy of pref is for one user only

Please no more things added that you can't remove if you don't like the item. For me the item I would like to remove if I could is Reapers notation, it is not that good.

OK, ReaPack might be an installation option, and not installed (but removed), if you actually uncheck that option in the installation menu (avoiding the entry in the "extensions" menu).

But why do you think the notation feature hurts if it's present but not used ?

Just look at the size of reaper before and after notation, with not using notation and using another notation to get one that works to my satisfaction I'm getting a double penalty on memory usage.

I wish notation was written in a manner that third party companies could also provide a notation that is complete and displays musical score correctly, which Reaper notation doesn't.

Other than my complaints regarding notation, I love Reaper.

Hah, yeah, I just saw your theme, looks nice... but I HAD dark mode FX menus for awhile.

I'm pretty dialed into the Commala theme, otherwise I'd try yours with the .dll swap out.

FORCE IMPORTANT WINDOWS TO THE FRONT NO MATTER WHAT!!! Thanks.

Yes, I yelled it drives me nuts every time for example:

I open a project and a library (Kontakt) is not found or the samples are not found,
and it's "stuck" loading the project, only to find I have to alt+tab to a Kontakt
window where I am being told exactly that, and I need to click on something to proceed.

Or I close a project, but I have Kontakt right in my face, and Reaper asks me
if I want to SAVE the project, but I don't know what it's asking (I use voodoo
to know that) and I can't for the life of me click yes or no because Kontakt
is over that window that just popped to ask me that and I can't alt+tab to that Windows window to select yes or no... and I have to force Reaper to close... grrrr



GRRRRRR akjdsfkadjf GRRR... lol.

(AND God forbid I use the force a REaper window to be on top of it all (pin), that just makes it worse)....

Thanks for trying, now it's worse:

I get a pop up window "Loading instruments has failed, as the library Kontakt
is not installed on this computer", is hidden by Kontakt actually, and I can't click on it to say "ok".

At least I could Alt + TAb and close it to circunvent its purpose.

(Of course I am loading projects that I know will cause some issue to test this).

EDIT: Ok, I need to live with this a little longer, because perhaps the issue I mention is the only one now showing. Thanks again.

Only that it depends on the users current feelings which windows are important at that moment and which are not.

Hence an expensive Reading Mind USB device is necessary to make this work.

A gentle reminder: There isnt even an ALPHA version out there yet, apart from White Tie`s early Reaper 6 style theme.

The dev builds are the alpha version.

AFAIU: Reaper is under constant (very successful and very welcome) development, sub-version appearing any few weeks.

The only thing that is only updated with full versions is the default look.

So I would say that there is an ALPHA of the essence of v6.

But in fact I don't really care about that number. v6 will cost me few Euros, but I will happily pay that small amount.

The most important window is the one that requires IMMEDIATE action or Reaper would
be locked out.

I've had to force Reaper to close because of this, zillions of times.

REALLY???

So there isn`t any actual beta testing being done? Straight from Alpha to release....

Hmmmm... Does make me wonder about WEhite Tie already working on the R6 theme but nothing obviously R6 oriented in the pre-releases that I can see.

It`s all pretty much a smooth transition with gradual introduction of stuff that has been worked on for ages. Devs usually have something major-ish held back until near the beta testing starts. Sorry - ALPHA.

All a case of semantics I suppose...

There is a way around forcing close. I used to alt+tab until I got the dialog window and then hit enter really fast afterwards, but there's a better way. I'm just forgetting it right now. I think there's a way to move the window as I recall, or something like that. I wish I could remember. It was a eureka moment, combined with feeling stupid. But I forget already lol.

Is it known which DAW or host may be including ARA?
FL Studio has vaguely mentioned ARA.

Default MIDI delay between IN and OUT with hardware synths

I am new to Reaper and currently I am about to check out if Reaper could replace my "old" sequencer / DAW.

Yesterday I noticed that there's a MIDI delay between IN and OUT with hardware synths.
And I found this discussion here:
https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=175007

I would suggest that using
. MMRESULT midiOutShortMsg( HMIDIOUT hmo, DWORD dwMsg);
inside the MIDI callback procedure or thread
would immediately mirror the MIDI messages on the input directly to the output.


I would like to see "no delay" between IN and OUT with MIDI hardware synths in Reaper.

This is technically impossible, as as well the Midi transfer out of the computer as the A/D to get the audio into the computer are bound to impose some latency.

In Reaper, there Is ReaInsert that can compensate such latency.

Hello Michael, and thanks for welcome.

Technically the MIDI hardware interface is very slow
as it is an old serial connection, yes.
"Really no delay" is technically impossible, yes.

But if You add 1 ms for each note on hardware input
and 1 ms for each note on hardware output (due to MIDI interface speed ..)
it is possible to get really close to 2 ms
passing this midi note through the computer/software and the MIDI hardware
to the connected hardware synthesizer / drum computer.

Other DAWs do have this "no delay" (as far as technically posssible)
and I noticed that Reaper instead has a massive delay.
I currently use Samplitude and Studio One and there's no _noticable_ delay.
I also tried other DAWs .. Even under Emagic Logic Windows
on an old 500 MHz PC, 25 years ago, the MIDI delay was not this "noticable",
for the musicians ears.

I would like to see Reaper being improved to reduce this MIDI delay.
