Hi all
Making some progress on this. So far the most promising result seems to be to use the undocumented audio loopback

(edit reaper.ini, in the [reaper] section, add a line:
rearoute_loopback=8)

So I now have a "mixer project tab" into which all my other song project tabs are feeding their busses using the audio loopback.

In the "mixer project tab", I have used ReaLearn from Helgoboss to set up midi control of the track volume for each buss. Project tabs are set to Run Background Projects and Run Stopped Background Projects.

This would be the ideal solution except for one small wrinkle. The midi-controller only works on the "mixer project tab" if that project has focus. I would really like to be able to control the "mixer project tab" using the midi controller when that project does not have focus, i.e. I have one of the song projects visible. Does anyone know if there is a way to achieve this?

Cheers
Nick
