Getting Started with Divisimate Micro in

Reaper

Reaper Quickstart

In this tutorial we will go through the steps to send the individual notes of 4-note chords to four different instruments in Reaper.

1) Open a session in Reaper and go to Options > Preferences > Audio > MIDI Devices and make sure all Divisimate Ports are enabled. You can click on the first one, shift-click on the last one and enable them all in one go with right-click/ctrl-click > enable input.

2) Create an instrument track by clicking Track > Insert virtual instrument on a new track and select Divisimate as instrument.

You should now see Divisimate Micro with a default 4 by 4 routing in a plugin window.

Select your keyboard controller as input for the track.

3) Create 4 instrument-tracks and insert instruments of your choice.

4) Make sure, that the tracks are record-enabled. If they are not, enable them by shift-clicking the arm-button of the tracks you want to play. You can also enable a bunch at once by selecting them (click on the first one and shift-click on the last one) before clicking on record-arm.

5) Set the first track’s midi-input from MIDI: All: All channels to Input: MIDI > Divismate Port 01 > All Channels, the following track’s MIDI input to MIDI > Divismate Port 02 > All Channels and so on.

6) Now you can play the four instruments through Divisimate and record the result in Reaper. Have fun orchestrating and composing!

Important Settings


 

If you want to play man instruments live in Reaper it is important to turn on live FX multiprocessing to distribute the CPU load across multiple cores.
