Native Linux REAPER favorite interface...

REAPER has released a native linux version DAW. I am finding it a virtually flawless beta. Obvious concerns would be compatible interfaces with linux and REAPER. What interface are you using and how well is it performing? I am using a Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd gen) Everything is functioning perfectly. (I am using Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon).

I would think any Class-Compliant USB interface that doesn't require specific drivers would be okay: I'm not using Reaper yet but plan to switch to it; I used Ardour for a few years in Linux with a Sound Devices USB Pre2 and it worked flawlessly.

Ardour

I still use Ardour. I love it for quite a few things. It will probably be my back up DAW. For certain songs I will always like it, Not to mention I want to keep certain linux only plugins!

Class compliancy

Yes it would seem that any class compliant interface would work, But dealing with Linux is not quites the same as Win/Apple. You would think they are all interchangeable with any OS. There can be many class compliant type elements on any device. Usb class compliancy has a few alone (Usb 1, Usb 2 etc) In the early going focusrite was one of the few that worked well with Linux. Now there are many many more choices. Yes you can always work around somehow. Like running VST/AU/AAX or Ladspa LV3 etc, and can get tricky alone for newbies. Using WINE or a bridge or wrapper can also further the problem. Or sometimes you get and over ride of 'Pulse' from ALSA. I have had absolutely no problem Focusrite interface with Linux / Linux Reaper / Fedora / Ardour / Audacity / Audacious etc. I was wondering who else is having great success with specific interfaces while running Reaper Cockos Native Linux. I am also running a lot of Plug ins that will not work on Windows - Linux Only... And I am running quite of few Windows VSTs on Linux too. tc

Ya i am 95 % Linux but not as good set up as you. But you can work magic anyplace.
Bitwig /' Reaper is solid combo on Linux. I use Reaper/Ardour along with all the other free ones... LMMS Audacity Rosegarden Zyn Ravegen etc. would love to have spectral wave or adobe for graphic editing though,

Where are you guys with the Linux/Reaper combo?" I like Linux and am thinking about dual-booting it on my W10. Are you still happy with Reaper on Linux? Any problems? Stability? Quality of finished product (CD)?

Yea it is my main driver DAW. I am extremely happy with everything about it. Customization is unsurpassed IMO. Although you might lose a vst or 2 you gain all the linvst lapsdas etc. But I have one system that boots both Win & Linux Reaper on the same screen/one pc - I can switch from one to the other fast and use All the Win and Linux plugins. I would suggest you pick the Linux of your choice. (Mint/Ubuntu/Xfce/Fedora etc,) Create a live boot flash drive or CD and load 'Reaper Native Linux, on it. Live boot it on you PC (it will run just on ram/without changing your pc settings) And test drive it. I have my main driver set up for cold swapping or sata switch hard drives. One hard drive has Linux mint cinnamon the other has Win. Go over to Reaper Cockos Native Linux Forum and check out the small tight helpful & brilliant community and browse the posts. IF I am trying to do something that has never been done before... I get same day replies and usually the info I needed. Many people there have dual boots too. Some people who track live have latency down to a minimum but that usually takes RTK real time kernel OS (not hard). I have just set up an external editor that I can flip flop between Audacity or Proprietary editors with ease. The quality is superb. I run 48khertz generally; but run 8khz to 192khz ~ 64pt to 768pt hq sinc - 64bit float: great quality & algorithms. CD quality great! Dialed in upload to platforms excellent. The only crashes I ever had was trying to do a few crazy experimental plugin or stand alone loads into Reaper - but I have never lost any info and DAW rebooted with out a hiccup. (by the way I am batting about 50% on these crazy projects working. (Zyn/Synths/Rave generator etc & I posted my experiences with them on the site) The head mod is always reachable and is spearheading the development. I am sure you would get a warm welcome there and they would get you dream set up going within 24 hours... just guessing, good luck keep in-touch.

OK, way cool. Thanks for the encouragement. I have been dabbling in Mint. I have it on a laptop and am trying to get it to dual boot on my ancient Dell tower. It has not installed in two tries. Maybe the third time is the charm.

I am using SAM Pro X3 on W10 and have been using SAM for years now, starting with their stripped down $40 or $50 version way back. It works just great for me but Windows is just too much of a liability. The less use I can make of it the better I will fell.

Thanks again!

I often use windows PE or Hirams - I have used dual boot / but I much prefer to have separate hard drives. In my past dual boots I have loaded Windows 1st - generally. It wants to have control over the bios. usually. I Like to have a mobo bios set up that both OSs like - that was/is always key for me... and from there I never had problems... (Uefi/legacy etc) I ditched windows years ago. I also have a set up with Modicia running Linux as first priority and Windows running under wine... with out a hitch too. Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon - is such a solid choice. I think the repository set up and testing is much better than Ubuntu - although that is good too. If you go with Mint... I urge you to load 'Timeshift' for automatic 'last good known configuration; in case you run into a snag. I have never needed it. If you have an ancient dell there are lighter weight distros... Linux Mint sfce - is good choice. GL give a yell if I could help.

Here for the gear
 

If you want to save yourself all the setup and at least half the time you could try a distribution already setup for music. I use AVLinux and it is great, the new 2019 version works great and I have Reaper Native and Reaper Win64 both working with a massive amount of Win VST (Win & LinVST).

Give it a try I'm sure you'll like it.

Nice there is a few good plug and plays... Like AV... Debian and 'Stretch' flavors are favorites. Here is a few things included in AVLinux: AV Linux ships with a number of audio, graphics, and video software. They include Ardour, Audacity, Hydrogen, MuseScore, Calf Studio Gear, GIMP, Inkscape, Shotwell, Blender, Kdenlive, Openshot, and Cinelerra.

I still use Ardour... especially for a difference in creative work flow... Hydrogen is nice drum machine when you make some quick drum kits (many free kits to download too). Use audacity from Reaper is GREAT... Open and edit audio item in second editor. Inkscape is fast nice thumbnail or title page editor. Video making is EZ and quick Kdenlive is great for stripping out audio from vids with good codecs for YT and uploads.

So many useful plugins on CALF alone.

I'll see if I can get Mint installed over the weekend. I forgot what it balked at the last two times but I will try it again. I am just wrapping up a mix of a local chamber orchestra and have some great Freak Mountain Rambler recordings I am remixing. Archival of live performances which came out pretty well. "America's Best Bar Band." But it is no more.

Cheers and thanks for the help that was sent my way.

OK, installed Linux Mint, dual boot and a W10 update. After the EasyBCD and W10 update all that works is Linux Mint. This damned machine will not boot to anything else. I cannot force it to boot from any drive. Yikes. A problem to be dealt with later.

I have Reaper installed and am in a bind over my ESI [email protected] sound card. I have been using it for years and like it. And while I cannot get Linux to see it in Reaper, the Nuemann KH120 A's which are driven by the ESI [email protected] work just fine. Go figure. So someone knows the [email protected] is there and running.

So, now, how do I get the system to be fully aware of the ESI [email protected]? I would really like to start work in Reaper. There will be the usual learning curve from SAM to Reaper but I'm OK with that.

And I think that I am in Linux for the long haul. I am just so tired of the Microsoft stumbles and tumbles. And all the malware it attracts.

It is almost always a configuration problem - (personally I use cold boot instead of dual boot) In dual boots you have to make sure the win configuration doesn't over run the boot config and drivers... the boot config and its compatibility wth mobo cpu and chipset determines how I would set up a dual boot. I have my daily driver all Linux... there is nothing I am missing really... I switched over years ago - so glad I did it - and the support for those new to Linux is awesome now.

I essentially have no boot to W10. That just does not work. All I can boot to is Linux Mint and that is fine. I have dabbled with Linux over the years but am now in it for keeps.

The link to Cockos forums for installing the ESI [email protected] drivers yielded nothing with a search. I will try again later. I will straighten out the BIOS with the Dell disk that will reset the BIOS. I have a lot of stuff on the W10 side which would be nice to get back. MS has really screwed the pooch in the last year or so.

I don't think we (at least not I) were telling you to go to the forum to find info on installing those drivers; I meant you should post your question there. Lots more Reaper Linux users read that forum and your chances of getting an answer to your question are higher there than here on gearslutz. You should post your question there to see if anyone can help. Good luck!

Here is the thing with Linux routing... you have OPTIONS... the first thing to do is to get clarification of what your sound engine/onboard configuration is. ... I have limited knowledge of the ESI [email protected] card. But I have heard it will run off of ALSA You have 'PULSE' 'ALSA' and 'JACK' when run you run sound in most Linux OS. ---Pulse will often take over the sound by default---.THIS IS IMPORTANT to understand... But you can route it or disable it or prioritize it. ALSA is the preferred choice of running a RT kernel and live recording. Many run ALSA for everything. (For ESI [email protected] ALSA could be run off the "ice1724" module ?) JACK is used mainly for cable routing along with its GUI Qjackctl. I am set up like this - I have Pulse with PAVU to control it through a GUI - this is for recording my speakers out... say I want to AB or reference a track off of Youtube - I just hit PAVU (Pulse audio volume control) and record anything that comes out of my computer PC speakers. I use Jack (with the GUI) to route synthesizers and soft synths as stand alones or route and/or route a MIDI controller into a DAW like REAPER, ARDOUR etc. Jack will also connect connect recorders/daws such as Audacity into another daw like reaper as an EXTERNAL EDITOR. This is wonderful for just clicking on a sound clip/media item in your Reaper daw and it opens up a copy of the .wav file into audacity into a second window... this really is incredible.. I Alsa for most other things...

To retrieve the data off of windows you can clone the disk or other methods. You can inspect inspect it with Hirams Windows 10 Live Boot (small OS and free)

For windows to boot it has to be FIRST (almost always) in the boot sector or boot order. Check this... it might be second. Windows wants to run/control the bios/uefi intitial start up program - check this with through a program like "G-PARTED" or other and you should see where it is.

If you listed your hardware - it would be real helpful
In your terminal or command line type in 'hwinfo' and post the results. (other commands you can use are 'Inxi' or other commands. It might ask you to enter the command as a super user like sudo - just follww what it says. Also give me exactly what your question is we will get you an answer... sorry for the disjointed post I had to do it quickly. tc

While I slept last night the gremlins got in and Reaper plays imported tracks through my speakers and does not argue with me about audio configuration. I selected ALSA yesterday but it did not [I]seem[I] to make any difference. Today I got a file imported into Reaper and it plays. I will have to go back and fiddle with the settings to see what has happened. As of now I am guessing it is working through ALSA. But it does not look like the system can see the ESI [email protected] Back to work on the drivers. Thanks for your help. I am off now to Cockos Forums for help with the audio drivers.

It SEEMS like you have ALSA enabled... MAKE SURE YOU DISABLE PULSE...

With your system linux reaper native will be the best because of its light on resources and has small footprint.

Let me know your tag name over there I have the same... MAKE sure you go to the NATIVE LINUX forum to post... the head guy is named Jack Winter... but there are about 20 tech pros there that can also get you fixed.

Here is a section from a ALSA matrix post I made a while back - these were the ESI drivers at that time.. https://www.alsa-project.org/wiki/Matrix:Vendor-ESI

Here is the overall driver list.. of the matrix https://www.alsa-project.org/main/in...undCard_Matrix

AND here was my post... https://forum.cockos.com/showthread....highlight=alsa

Thanks for all your help. Yes, something I did screwing around with the ALSA link given to me by ESI support got the drivers into my ancient machine. I checked the the Preferences > Audio and find that "hw:Juli ; ICE1724 - ESI [email protected]" is in the input and output panels and ALSA is enabled so everything is good. Now it is the learning curve of Reaper. Fortunately all my files on the W10 side are stored where I can get at them and I also have them backed up to a USB HD. I hope to get down to a bluegrass/folk "jam" down the coast from me next Monday. They are a rag-tag mix of musicians, pro, semi-pro, weekend warrior and music school dropouts. But, I can get some live music to play with in Reaper. I do not want to go back and remix old recordings. And I do hope that those sexy iZotrope plugins will work in Reaper. Onward and upward.

Thanks for you help and encouragement. I am boojumsnark on the Cockos forums.

I have Modicia OS loaded on a pc - with Windows Reaper AND Linus Reaper... in case I want a rare windows only plug in... haven't needed it yet lol. Modicia is an Italian Linux artists OS.and has Preconfigured Wine etc. it is just boot and go. Reaper is not hard... If you have trouble with anything check Kenny Goiias vids on YT that is for getting around the daw he is excellent fast and concise. Definitely get the "External Editor" going as one of your first priorities.. you can test it with Audacity as pionary/secondary editor... really really useful... if you get stuck on sumtin pm me or what ever... win---freee dom.
