sending max control data to Reaper via OSC

    Jun 23 2020 | 2:11 pm
    I am generating control data from Max and sending it to Reaper to use the Surge synth and I am having quite a bit of trouble. Midi is a bit limited in terms of how many kinds of messages I can send. I am now using OSC but it does not seem to work either. I am using Reaper's .ReaperOSC file to address the Surge parameters properly. OSC messages are getting into Reaper fine but the synth is not reacting in real time, and lags a lot. I am wondering if someone else here has tried different approaches? Should I just swith over to Abelton (it is super expensivo tho)?

      before buying anything I would first check why is that synth causing problems. record some automation in reaper and see if it makes difference if synth gets automated form automation values or when it receives same amount of parameter changes form midi or OSC

      Tried that, midi work fine but it's limited. Osc very spotty. Seems like live would simplify this, I meant to switch over for some time this might be the straw that broke the camel's back

      Maybe you send too fast loads of messages, that could cause the problems.
