This script is a sound designer’s dream!
When run, It will always record in the background no matter what REAPER is doing. Then the recorded bits can be highlighted and dragged back into the project.
Here’s how it works
This script is perfect for when you are playing around with sounds and maybe you captured something cool. You can drag it back to the project and keep mangling it as long as you want!
How to get it
This script was made by Birdbird. You can check out the forum thread about this script for lots of more info including installation instructions.
