I stumbled across a video of a guitarist using some default reaper feature to convert his guitar playing into midi in real time.
https://youtu.be/G8D2jEhbN7Y is the video if you are interested.
There are some plugins that are available with similar functionality and I am aware of extracting midi from audio in Cubase.
But is there away to trigger midi from an audio source in real time? It would be great to play padshop or retrologue with my guitar.
