Re: Is there a way to run NVDA as a window and not a background process?

Steve Nutt

Thanks for posting all that Brian. I know it’s off topic here, but it’s just another way to record things. I use Reaper with a Vocaster 2 audio interface and there is no other virtual cables or third party software needed, because it has loopback inputs that you can grab to get either the computer or yourself separately, and put them on separate tracks.


I’ll say no more here, but I just wanted to thank you for posting the Reaper information. It is the most accessible Digital Audio Workstation out there bar none I’d say.


All the best
