View Full Version : Record acoustic guitar while running thru realtime FX?

06-08-2017, 05:54 PM
Is it possible to have my acoustic guitar playing into mic, and mic plugged into Reason, while passing the audio through an FX unit within Reason, such that l hear an electric guitar coming out of my speakers, when l strum my acoustic guitar?

A friend of mine said l'd need a "line-in device" e.g. Balance. Is there any other way?

All you do is plug each into it's on channel and then press the "speaker" button to hear what you are playing live without recording. Add effects and sends no problem and even pan each channel in the mixer.

Hi there friend, thanks for your response.

I don't get what you mean, though:

"Plug each" = plug each what?
"its on channel" = ?

How would you recommend adding the FX, by setting up a send, or having inline, wired direct to the Audio Track device? Because the latter doesn't seem to be working for me!

I see this does not merit a reply. I will try other resources, thank you for your time.
