Re: imitone's microphone shuts off when opening Reaper

You're encountering a device exclusivity problem.  On Windows, most audio devices can only be used by one "pro audio" app at a time.

There are a few common ways to work around this:

1. Disable audio input to your DAW while using imitone.
2. Plug in (e.g.) a spare USB microphone and let each app use a different mic input.
3. Set both apps to use the mic in a shared audio mode (sometimes called MME or Windows Multimedia).  This will make the mic respond more slowly.
4. Use the imitone VST plugin (but be advised it's in a partial state of development for now).

Beyond these options, it's possible to use more advanced tools like JACK to "share" mics between pro audio applications.  These tools get a bit advanced, though.
