Is Reaper compatible with EZdrummer? If so, how do i set it up?

P.S. I particularly want to use DFH.

    EZDrummer should work as it has a Mac installer, although I've read that it has some problems with Reaper (crashing). I'm not sure if this is fixed yet. But if you are interested in laying down drum tracks, it does work in Pro Tools for Mac.

    I use Windows, not Mac. And i don't have enough money atm for Pro Tools.

    what are your specific problems?

    i deleted EZdrummer in favor of BFD long ago, but i don't remember it being anything more than loading up the VST like normal.

    What is BFD? And how do you load up the VST again? (Sorry complete idiot here)

    BFD is a sample-based virtual percussion instrument, quite similar to EZdrummer.

    to load a VST with reaper right-click on the empty panel on the left where tracks normally go and select "insert virtual instrument" (or something to that degree) and then select your instrument.
    it's really simple and basic, so before you get too deep you should definitely spend some time with the manuals. it'll save you a lot of frustration in the end.

    make sure the dll file is in your VST folder, which you can change from options/preferences.

    Got it. Clicked Auto Detect and worked instantly. Thanks!

    Now I have my Drums, i need decent mics for my guitar/bass/vocals...

    I should note that i am a one man band, so i don't need a fancy 8-track recorder or something, just now i need to know what to hook myself up with.

    Oh, how do you get the Piano Roll up? I prefer to make my own beats...

    EDIT: Cancel that, found it.

    so long as you look for good deals on decent mics and use a USB/firewire unit for recording you'll probably be alright, assuming you can work the mix and aren't expecting a 100% clean, professional sound.

    what's your budget and do you have any specific plans/wants/needs?

    Well it ain't too high, i live in UK, and atm the best mic i have (i think) is the one that comes with Rock Band. And i don't know how to use USB mics in Reaper.
