Hi, so im compiling a Green Day song See You Tonight. While trying to compile in reaper i discovered DRYVOX. What do I put in this space? I have 2 vocal harmonies. I know it is probably a dumb question XD thanks!

Per the authoring docs: http://imgur.com/a/zubec

 

You can also use Audacity if you prefer. Dry vox is your lip sync.

I don't think so. I think if you don't have them, the singer (in-game) simply doesn't move his mouth.

They aren't required, but you'll need a blank file to give Magma. If you aren't working with stems I advise you to just go the extra mile and record yourself saying the lyrics of the song in Audacity and enunciating clearly. If you don't care at all about it though then just give Magma a blank file in the dry vox section.

Simpler work-around:  Solo the vocal section and record (i.e., render) that (in mono, 16000, 16 bit).  That can serve as a DryVox.  The animated singer will move its mouth when the vocal notes occur. 

 

This is discussed in the authoring docs.  It is very easy to make, and works almost as well as a real recording of you singing.  Helps for those, like me, who suck at singing.

IIRC, Dry vox also works for "score mapping". So, in Reaper, render the the vocal section as bsbloom said or record your own dry vox with a microphone (Reaper also works for this).
