Default Writing automation with tablet

A while back I had asked how to set up remote control with my Android tablet to be able to write automation. I never got a satisfactory answer so I wanted to ask for a feature request to enable this. My goal is to have a big fader on my tablet that I can drag up and down and write automation for the last touched parameter, whether it is an effect parameter or a tracks volume, mute or pan. Maybe someone can figure out a way to do this but my impression at the time was that it was currently not doable in Reaper. Thanks in advance for any ideas

Consider using OSC apps like TouchDAW or TouchOSC.

I tried touch daw but couldn't get it to work. The documentation is definitely weak on these apps to. Is touch Daw able to take a fader and assign it to the last touched parameter and also the volume mute pan parameters? I certainly could not figure it out. I would be happy to schedule a time to meet somebody in the Discord chat server to chat me through it.

In case my workflow is not clear, let me clarify. I'm in Reaper and writing automation for one thing at a time. It might be a tracks volume, mute, pan or a last touched parameter.

I'm trying to find a way on my tablet to have one fader that can write the automation in those cases. I only need one fader to do it but if there need to be 4 of them for volume, mute, pan and last touched parameter that's ok too but so far I can't find a way to do it. Thanks for any ideas. I'm on an android tablet.

HEY DEVS ! Can you please add midi learn to the volume, mute, pan for tracks? Thanks in advance. That way I could use one fader on an Android tablet to control let's touch parameter in volume, mute, pan I believe.

Or would this be totally useless and have to be relearned for every track. My goal is to have one fader on the tablet able to write automation for whichever track is selected

A part from FX, touchDAW allows you to have one fader volume for first selectzd track and you can do automation from there.


I think Touch OSC is required for FXs as it as generic faders.


Also you can consider Realearn extension which adds midi learn new features.

These actions should help I think?
Track: Set volume for last touched track (MIDI CC/OSC only)
Track: Set pan for last touched track (MIDI CC/OSC only)
Track: Set mute for last touched track (MIDI CC/OSC only)
