I’m working on a number of Reaper projects for a feature film, split into separate episodes.
In one project I created a preset in ReaDelay to give me a four-tap delay, with the length of delay increasing over the four taps. When I tried to use this preset in another of the projects, it didn’t work: I couldn’t hear any repeats.
After some time scratching my head I realised that the delays were set as quarter notes, and the BPM of the project was set to … 1. I don’t know how that happened, but clearly any delays will sound way too late.
Solution is to switch to specifying milliseconds instead of delay in the plugin settings, or, if it doesn’t screw with your sounds (I guess only MIDI data?) set the project BPM to something sensible.
