OBS Studio setup for record your DAW

A how-to by Have Guitar

So, I know more people than me have scratched their heads on how to record both screen and audio from your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) . Actually it is not that complicated – and looks who’s talking: it took me a couple of hours to get it all setup in a working manner! But as I say in the video, once it is done you realize that it isn’t that complicated at all!

You’ll need OBS Studio, a free software that can record both screen and audio from your computer. But then you have the problem that in 9 cases out of 10 OBS studio will not pick up the sound from your DAW! And that is where VB Audio’s VoiceMeeter Banana comes in – also a free software (it’s up to You as it’s donationware) that can route the audio from your DAW so that OBS Studio can pick it up.

Also, a sidenote; pretty sure I refered to my audio interface as Focusrite Sapphire in the video. It’s a Focusrite Scarlett. Just so you know I am aware of that! 🙂

So, as I was happy to get this thing going I figured I’d make a video out of it. If it helps one person out there it’s worth the time it took… and with said I hope you got something out of this video. Likes and comments are welcome, a subscription even more so! Thanks goes out to you who subscribes, as always!!

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! 😉
