Default Avid S1 and Reaper

Does anyone have an S1 working with Reaper? I love the lcd track names and general look and feel of the control surfaces but worry about the Eucon integration with Reaper.

I canít find much online other than; It works. But to what extent? Can you control the eq on the touch screen for example?

Iíve looked at the x32 and the Icon but I want something excellent!

Do you already have an ipad? You can try it without buying the S1 by installing the avid control app. Its free and will allow you to see what functions and what doesn't.

Thanks Nick.

Yeah I have an iPad. I've been doing some digging into setting it all up.

Is this really the way? Seems overly complicated.

well, sort of.

For basic eucon, install CSI and Eucon as outlined here -
https://github.com/GeoffAWaddington/...i/Installation

Follow these steps and you'll have reaper Eucon enabled in minutes.

-****also, Make sure to download and install the Eucon drivers from Avid.

Everything else with CSI is for other controllers and probably not relevant to you. I have started to program my CSI for a Mackie C4 to go along with my Eucon controllers. Pretty nice, but much more to learn and do than just installing some drivers and getting on with it.

I've been using an S1 with Reaper since the beginning of the year. I really like it, but unfortunately getting Eucon to work in Reaper does take some leg work. You can either use CSI (https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=183143) or Geoff's old Eucon extension from a few years back (https://stash.reaper.fm/v/18477/EuCon%20Beta.zip). CSI still has a a lot of yet to be fixed automation bugs that make it unusable for me, so I mostly stick with the old extension. It works well for the most part, but there some things that don't work. Here's a rundown:
  • Pan graphs, EQ graphs and Dynamics Graphs don't work
  • Gain reduction meters don't work
  • VCA spill doesn't work
  • track colors from Reaper are not displayed properly in Eucon
  • Automation display is limited to four modes: off, read, write, and read/write. Tracks that are in trim/read mode in Reaper will show as off in Eucon, tracks that are in touch, latch, or latch-preview in Reaper will show as read/write in Eucon. (The CSI version can show latch and touch, but as I said it has lots of other problems with automation)
  • Eucon Layouts work, but getting them to save and load with projects is a little buggy
  • When using the old Eucon extension, adding and deleting tracks will cause Reaper to freeze momentarily (same goes for adding/deleting sends and fx, as well as switching project tabs)
  • Plugin mapping on the old Eucon extension is really great, but is a little tough to figure out. Making your own plugin maps requires a separate app that Geoff made which is windows only and is not very well documented. If you comb through this old thread you may be able to figure out how it works: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=122509
