Thanks, I stumbled onto lulu.com about a week ago. The ReaMix book looks amazing and I am going to order it. I am waiting for the new version of the Reaper op manual to come out, then will order both books at once.
I must say that I am having a blast with the VG-99 and Reaper. Using a "bare" VG-99 patch, I put down a rhythm electric (Classic Strat) track with no FX; only used a COSM JC-120 Bright Amp. Then I very quickly inserted a new track in Reaper, switched the VG-99 to play a Rick 12-String electric fill-in part on the song's chorus, and voila, done! This was accomplished in literally minutes.
Question: With the Roland VS recorders, I got into the habit of putting guitar tracks down clean, then adding any needed distortion, chorus, delay, etc., using the COSM stuff in the VS recorders when mixing. I haven't had much of a chance yet to play with the JS guitar effects in Reaper. What is your opinion of the Reaper JS guitar effects compared to the VG-99's, and would you agree that it is still a good idea to record guitars with no effects at first, and add effects during the mixing?
