So heres my situation I have tried and tried making MIDI notes for guitar with Reaper but i just couldnt anymore there were times where Iwas like I can play this on the controller but on Reaper it just sounds..... wrong the way I try to lay the notes out by using my ears. And there's really nothing I can do about it. It kinda seems like one of those hands on learning verses auditory learning differences where I'm more of a hands on person than anything else
So.... I bought me a Wireless Xbox 360 receiver for my guitar to connect to my PC which seems to connect just fine BUT the real problem is the plug-in. For this example I'm going to use Armchair Guitarist.
I'm hoping there are people out there that use it with Reaper if not to be honest I just need a plug-in I can install that I can press frets / strum bar on my guitar to a song and it will convert it to a MIDI input.
Armchair Guitarist is downloaded as a rar file which is fine because I can exact all the files to my laptop just fine with WinRAR, but the problem in Reaper I go to Options>Preferences>VST>Add> then select the Armchair Guitarist on my desktop. I close the window and create a new virtual instrument track and select VSTi: Armchair Guitarist and get this message:
the following effect plug-in cannot be loaded:
VSTi: ArmchairGuitarist-release-188.8.131.52 (mono)
(effect configuration is preserved)
If anyone out there could please either tell me how to fix this issue or detailed instructions on how to install anpther another plug-in that can accept MIDI Inputs from a wireless Guitar Hero Controller that would be awesome
