Overbridge and Reaper

Hi erveryone,

I’m having issues with Overbridge and Reaper : I still can’t manage to record individual tracks from the DT in my DAW.
When I arm recording for each track, no signal seems to appear.
If I then open individual audio files in Wavosaur and normalize them, the sound comes but there is also an awful noise with it.

Could anyone help me set this up, please ?

Thank you !

Iirc Right click somewhere and “record output”

Thank you for your answer, but it doesn’t seem to work (or I simply couldn’t manage it : when I right click somewhere, I don’t get the “Record output” message).

I won’t be at the studio for awhile to check.

But try searching for “how to record vst output reaper”

Try right clicking on the arm record

Thank you very much for your help !
I’ll try this method as soon as possible.

I’m sorry, I can’t manage it.
I loaded the DT on a new track as a VST instrument, then chose to route the eight outputs of the DT to eight new audio tracks I created.
When I hit the “Play” button, it seems to work, as every audio track gets a signal, but as soon as I arm recording for each track, the signal disappears.

I think I’m going to let this down (maybe I don’t know enough about routing to sort this out).

Don’t worry. Hand to heart it works.

Try this thread: the first reply is the answer.

But if you don’t get it I can help better later. Reapers have to stick together in this Ableton world :wink:

Thank you so much for your help ! It worked… :heart_eyes:

I can’t understand why I couldn’t manage it by simply routing the 8 tracks of the DT to 8 new tracks and record them (I certainly did something wrong), but I will use the method you taught me.

Thank you for not letting me down and for your kind words (Reaper users need to stick together, you’re right) !

Have a good day.


Just want to say thanks to all those giving out reaper help with OB.

Hey Fellow Reapers. I am bumping this thread because I just cant figure out how to get the specific audio from each track to record in Reaper. I set up the Digitakt as a VST and it works and creates all the right channels, but i cant seem to figure out how to get each channel to only record audio from that track. In other words, all 8 tracks record the same audio, which is just the master out of the Digitakt, a blend of all 8 tracks
What am i doing wrong? This is how it sets it up in Reaper and I dont know how to tweak it.
Thanks so much for any help

have you checked the routing matrix? If you can’t see the 8 DT outputs in the matrix, ready to assign to tracks, you know that you need to go a back a step…

Try that RPP as a quick fix to get you going. It’s set up a little different than the way Reaper does it when inserting the OB plug-in. The tracks are all set up to record in stereo, so you may want to change that for your own needs


Thank you so very very much my friend. This has helped me immensely!
