It’s really designed to work with Ableton Live. It will work as a standard midi keyboard controller, but the keys won’t light up, so you won’t see root notes or white/black keys. There are apps that will let you use the launchpad in other DAWs. I found one that worked with my Mac in both Cubase and Logic. Here’s one I found on KVR just typing in a search. You will need something like it to work in Reaper
