Reaper: Route Addictive Drums 2 to audio tracks

Here’s a short but useful how-to-video for Reaper. This video will show you how to route the drum channels in XLN Audios Addictive Drums 2 to audio channels in Reaper.

Why would you like to do that?! Well, Addictive Drums 2 have some nice effects built in… but what if you want add your favourite compressor to the bass drum? Or if the overhead need some lovin from your prefered EQ? You don’t have to export the drums and import them as audio tracks – instead you can just add the effects to the routed audio tracks directly – that’s why!

This is Have Guitars first “Reaper video” and hopefully there will be more. The version of Reaper in this video is v5.40. I’ll need to find a way record video from the screen rather than just using stills, in this video I tried Flashback Pro 5 but it would not record the audio. Working on that.

Hope you had some use for this tutorial and if you liked the video and wan’t to support the channel please do subscribe! It’s free and you’ll get a notification when there’s a new video out and best of all, it’s of course totally free! 😉
