Hi, guys :)

Is that any way to send midi information from Reaper to FL studio in order to play instruments in FL studio? I mean to use Reaper instead of piano roll in FL studio.

Thanks in advance

Do you even need to use Rewire for this? Can you not load FL Studio as a VST inside Reaper and send MIDI directly? In Reaper you can control each instrument in FL Studio by setting the MIDI channel in the piano roll. Can even have each instrument audio go to a different track in Reaper.

Otherwise, I think you'd have to use virtual midi cables, like LoopBe1, etc.

Thanks, Fandango!

How can I do that without virtual midi cables?

Just load the FL Studio VSTi in Reaper.

Oh, I forgot to mention, there's a slight delay when using the VSTi on playback. i.e., it might seem like the first bar of your music isn't playing back. If memory serves, people start their songs on Measure 2 of their timeline, and start playback from Measure 1.

AFAIK it still mixes down correctly when exporting from Reaper. This is an old issue, so old I totally forgot about it. :oops:

in that case try exporting your midi files. midi is universal and you can use it any daw.

i forgot to mention, you could look as Rewireing Reaper to FL.
if you go to the reaper forums i bet you would get some clear help.
or try image lines forums.
