Default Karaoke in reaper****** who can help?

Hey there guys.

There is so much information out there on the audacity
although nothing in reaper on how to create a good karaoke track
with that we mean using a YouTube backing track
in singing over the track.

If there is anyone out there would be able to assist.
One for the level of microphone input from Windows
in the level to set the recording to

And the level for the video U-tube backing track.

Looking very much forward to replies

I have chronic rheumatoid arthritis
and I use this as my pain medium to relax
and share back with.


I have had some success with songs
although I would like a consistent set up
to go to and start singing, so far I believe it's been hit and miss

I have invested in some Mike Mackie studio monitors
if anyone knows how to set up studio monitors help appreciated

I have a professional takstar microphone singing in a kaiotica eyeball
using a USB to XLR converter on my microphone.

Any help towards producing some decent sounds consistently appreciated

Warmly OHO and that simply means others helping others.

Which means if I can help you in return to create marketing videos
animated characters with real voice-overs and different languages

I'm more than happy to assist

Because you like me know this is a great place to get help when required
and always appreciated

You might have better luck getting a response if you list what sort of input files you have (.wav? .mp3? kareoke Cd?) and what sort of result you'd like to get from them. Are you trying to use Reaper as a kareoke machine? Or what?

If you're using Youtube kareoke videos, what do you need Reaper for?

Please explain clearly what audio interface you have and how many ins/out does it have.

The easiest way to convert Reaper in a karaoke app with Youtube video is to route the default windows sound device to one of your interface inputs. Some interfaces let you do this by software, if your interface don't and it have more that two outs then you could simply patch the outs to an input.

Later create a reaper project with one track per mic and one track for the youtube sound that should be set to the input you patched in your audio interface.

Example for an audio interface with 4 mono outs and 4 input channels:
  1. Set Windows default audio device to outs 3 and 4
  2. Connect a cable from out 3 to your interface input 1
  3. Connect a cable from out 4 to your interface input 2
  4. Create a Reaper project and create one track for each of your mics. Add all the FX you want. Try to add only effects with no latency.
  5. Create one last track and set the stereo inputs to your interface inputs 1/2. This will be your youtube video sound. Add FXs to this track, I recommend a compressor, some EQ and a limiter

Now just open youtube and play some karaoke. The sound will be routed to Reaper and processed by it.

Hope this helps. I used this a lot with my wife's karaoke parties with excellent results.

Lyrics CDG MIDI KAR same as Winamp


or In ReaTrak use MIDI Item Text Events and Create Text Chord Track
right click Save Link/Target As
ReaTrak add regions or markers from midi text selected items.lua
get these from Reapack or web search
X-Raym_Create text items on first selected track from regions.lua
X-Raym_Create text items on first selected track from markers.lua
Set it to Options > Continuous scrolling so the play cursor remain in the center.

Also you can try the chord sheet in ReaTrak right click set the Font size to 30
