One thing I'm really looking forward to is the ability to slave Reaper to SMPTE or MTC, and thus to a tape machine. Is this in development and soon to come?

thanks again for your fantastic work.

This is something we're planning on doing.. though it wouldnt be full sync, it would just be triggering from timecode, and perhaps resyncing if it gets too far off (but that distance would be upward of a second or two).

If your tape machine syncs to SMPTE or MTC, REAPER can send it.. including SMPTE LTC (timecode as audio)..
