I am trying to simply put a drum backing track onto Reaper. I have read around on the internet and apparently I need to either spend £80 or illegally download 6GB of files. Is there any easy way I can import a drum track from Guitar Pro or something?

This would be better off in Riffs & Recordings.

The best you can do without the expenditure or downloading, however, is MIDI drums which might suffice for what you want, I don't know. Basically you need to export the drum track from GP as a MIDI file and then import that into Reaper.

Thats what I tried and it imports the drum file, but when I hit play there is no sound coming from it, as if it recorded silence.

You can export it as an MP3.

Set audacity to record the line out and play the drums as a solo track.

You have to set the output of the MIDI track(rightclick IO, MIDI output, send all) to the plugin that should already be installed on your computer, for me it's MS GS Wavetable.

I don't quite understand.

Rightclick on what?


The track you put your midi in has the buttons io, env, and fx. Click or rightclick the io button and select midi output and select your software. Hope that's a little clearer

I clicked midi output and the only option I have is <no output>

Then you have a problem...
Try googling the wavetable software(if you're on Windows), all I can think of.
