So, we are all going to be going back to 'normal' soon, which means I might be able to actually punt for some work, opportunities have really taken a hit over the last 18 months, if your plans involved setting up a mobile live recording service, and as far as my own personal 'inspiration', that became non existent for some reason.
I have tried to keep up with developments despite the relentless OS and hardware upgrade path, and have been struggling to justify any form of studio upgrade ( expensive, and difficult with older hardware / interface etc )
As a bare minimum, I had decided I needed either an extra monitor, or a better control surface, so today I discovered another feature inside of Reaper, the Web remote, and the add on, Web remote browser.
It sounds pretty complex, but within a few minutes I had Web remote working on my main machine via a Huawaii tablet and my Oneplus phone.
A few vids later, I had found a Kenny vid from 4 years ago showing how to set it up, and I then found the install of WRB, which allows custom menus to be created.
Absolutely amazed, it will make things so much easier to work with, allowing full control of recording / mixing via a touch screen device - any touch screen device, and as many at the same time as one would want.
I was salivating over the new SSL controller, which costs £800 and probably wouldn't work with my Macbook and USB hub, which is beginning to complain ( Ilok seems to be becoming disconnected during a mix, or render session FFS )
I even managed to get it working well on my backup Win10 machine, which has been cycling through forced updates since 2019.
Reaper, never lets me down, with ability or inspiration, the only limit seems to be my imagination really.
Truly amazing software.
