Default Reaper as an Instrument

Just to let you know:

I very successfully use Reaper as a VST player (i.e. "Midi to Audio converter") "on stage", by means of several VSTi's (sample player, physical modeling, virtual hardware-synth) and some effects such as EQ and Reverb.

Now I was able to make the stuff that comes with reaper to play a role in something that takes place within an instrument.

I use the free "Dexed" DX7 - VSTi to create the sound of a vibrating metal plate (i.e. Metallophone). To do a vibraphone from this, I used the "3 Band Splitter" JSFX, ran the low band through the "Tremolo" JSFX, and of course mixed the channels using the "3 Band Joiner".

With some EQing this results is an (IMHO) rather realistic Vibraphone sound.

(BTW.: I did not do this yet, but with Dexed in Reaper it's easy to do a 12 or more Operand FM to create more sophisticatedly tweaked FM sounds.)

Reaper rocks !
