Smile Questions on hardware synths and vsts

Hey all, I have a Minilogue, love it to bits however I've been having a few difficulties with reaper.

I want to be able to make a sequence ON the minilogue, and some how have it clocked and sync'd with reaper so that I don't have to press record then press play and cross my fingers that I got it perfectly in time with the click.

I also want to be able to sequence the minilogue THROUGH the megababysequencer vst already in reaper, however when I plug the minilogue in as midi, it's just being used as a controller, no minilogue sounds.

Thank you in advanced

Check this video and read the understanding midi section of the minilogue manual.

Ask if you get stuck at a specific point. Syncing can be a little more confusing but you should at least be able to get the Minilogue to playback reaper midi easily enough.

Thank you very much Stella. Fortunately I've gotten at least that far and I'm not totally new to this. I've set up the midi in/out and have my instrument line plugged I to the synth. I'm just wanting to know how I'd go about sequencing the mi ilogue through reaper.

You said you don't have minilogue sounds, it only works as controller....so it doesn't sound like you have got that far?

Can you play the minilogue from midi in reaper or no??

Yup, just didn't realize you had to route them.

So you should also be able to insert megababy to that same track and get it working?

For the syncing of the Minilogue sequencer you'll have to refer the chapter of the manual I mentioned before to enable external sync for the minilogue.

Then this video from appx 5:30 on shows how to send the clock from Reaper.
