Default New to Reaper

Just downloaded Reaper program...Guitar and Bass will be going directly in Presonus Audiobox iOne...I want to try out the Blue Cat Audio Destructor for my tones and amp simulation and Addictive Drums 2 for pounding the pagan skins...

Does this seem like a doable combination?! Just getting started out in the whole diy/home recording world seems kinda daunting and there are squillions of choices to make... Any help/wisdom is appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome first of all.

Yes, that is absolutely doable. Insert all plugins into the "FX" box. See screen picture below.

Also, you may want to take a look at Kenny Gioia's "reaper mania" videos, they are very helpful to get you started.

And the manual by Geoffrey is great.

Hello and welcome.
I don't have the plug-ins you mention but I think Reaper will handle them just fine.

You might find Kenny's videos very helpful especially the series on Recording Your Band but all of the "Reaper 5 Explained" videos.
Also the manual is pretty comprehensive and worth a (free!) download.

One particular point re guitar. As you may know, fx are usually added to a track and can be changed later (either for another fx or by changing the fx parameters.) Alternatively they can be recorded with the audio by having them as input fx. See Kenny's very clear explanation in the video called "Input FX".

Have fun and just ask.
