How to Record 2 separate tracks on Reaper at the same time?

Recommended Posts

Although I can hear both vocals and guitar through my UX2, I can't seem to find any way of recording two separate mono tracks at the same time using Reaper as my DAW. Basically I want to record my guitar and vocals at the same time, then end up with two tracks that I can play about with and mix later on.


I can get the UX2 to send the guitar out on channel 1-2 and the vocal out on channel 3-4 but when it comes to recording it in to Reaper, I really am stuck. On Reaper I can select my first input as input 1 (or 2) and the guitar records fine, but the second input 3 (or 4) is totally dead when I sing into the mic.


If anyone has done this successfully on Reaper pls let me know. I have wasted a few hours trying to figure this out myself and all the google answers seem to be based on very old versions of Reaper :-/ Help!


Here is my set up:


  • UX2 using PodFarm2
  • Reaper latest version (Jan 2014)
  • Windows 7
  • SM 58 Mic/Epiphone electric guitar


And screenshots attached on what I have attempted so far, the UX2 set up I have, Main Reaper view and audio settings on Reaper.

You are almost there..


In Reaper for Audio system select ASIO.


Then the Input Device options should change to ASIO Driver.


Then under Enable inputs select first 1:send 1 ---- lasts 4:send 4


Finally under Output range select first 1: Output 1 ---- last 4: Output 4 2: Output 2


Now when you arm a track to you should have the appropriate ins available.


Your monitoring solution (Powered speakers/monitors and/or headphone) should be connect directly to the UX.

This worked! Thanks so much for looking at this for me mate.


I use headphones straight out of the UX2 to monitor so that's all cool. Incidentally in the output range I can only select output 1 and output 2. The inputs are all good though and I can select out of 4 outputs, and that works fine.
