It looks like Reaper falls back to MCU, so it may not be as sophisticated as the Cubase implementation I've described, but do let us know!

Hot tip:
I find keeping the good coffee in an old marmalade jar in the fridge makes it last much longer - the kids don't like marmalade.

Yes, if you want all of the bells and whistles it unfortunately relies on a DAW that offers EUCON support.

I'm also interested to hear how it does when used as an MCU/HUI controller though. :thumbup:

While Reaper doesn't have Eucon built in, there is an add-on under development from Geoff Waddington which supports it.

I was just about to post that link James, but you beat me to it :headbang:

Looks promising though, and Geoff Waddington seems to have been working on this for a year or so, although this is still a work in progress.
