"Now every time the gate opens, it sends a MIDI note which is routed back to Reaper’s control path, which means that you can use that note to trigger actions.
Go to Actions -> Show action list… and use the filter to find “Transport: Record”.
Click Add… in the down left corner and trigger the gate so it sends the note into Reaper. It is now learned to trigger that action every time the gate opens. "
what does it mean by trigger the gate. at the add box it wont let me go any further till Ive inputted a key for the action. it says to trigger gate, which I assume is press play on the digitakt, which I’ve done, but nothing.
edit: aight apparently Ive got to enable a midi output signal while the channel is live.
edits: now every time I click action:transport record it starts the recording without waiting for a trigger to learn. think im gonna give up for a bit
