Hello! I'm having some trouble using my VLR as an Aux Send in Reaper. Here's the important information:
PROBLEM: I'm trying to use the TC-Helicon VoiceLive as an AUX send effect. The VLR is receiving a signal and is outputting back to Reaper -- but the output audio is 100% Dry (no effects). Both the vocal track and the effects track sound exactly the same.
SETUP: Windows 7 PC Saffire Pro 40 Reaper (latest) TC-Helicon VoiceLive Rack (w/ latest firmware)
The I/O SETUP menu on the VLR looks like this: IN GAIN: 15db PHANTOM: Off AUX LEVEL: 0db OUTPUT: Stereo DIGITAL IN: USB: VOX L / INST R DIGITAL OUT: Full Mix LEAD MUTE: On LEAD DLY: Auto OUTPUT LEVEL RANGE: Line
SOFTWARE: In Reaper I have a dry pre-recorded vocal track (Name: VOX) and a track for the VoiceLive (Name: VLRFX).
VOX is sent to VLRFX Pre-Fader.
I added a Saffire Line-3 "Hardware Output" to VLRFX (pre-fader). VLRFX Input it set to Saffire CH3 and Saffire CH4.
I had the same, couldn't figure it out. Linie in- Line out stereo buses. Then i updated with the newest Voicelive Support 2 to the latest firmware, and did a factory reset which did not seem to work LoL (pressing umod, delay, reverb, tone for 2 minutes seems nearly impossible). But it works, though there seems to be a slight about 1 db difference in the LR balance. J
