Reaticulate | a free articulation management system for REAPER


Be sure to restart Reaper after installing any extensions.


The Easy Way (ReaPack)

If your DAW is connected to the Internet, you can install Reaticulate as a ReaPack repository.

If you don't already have ReaPack, head on over to and install it.

Once you have ReaPack installed:

  1. Open the menu: Extensions | ReaPack | Import a Repository
  2. Paste in this URL:
  3. Double click the newly added Reaticulate item in the repository list
  4. Click the Install/update Reaticulate button and select Install all packages

Here's a screen capture that depicts the above steps:


Now's a good time to read more about how to launch and use Reaticulate.

Living on the edge?

Pre-releases are made available from time to time and can give an earlier preview to new functionality or fixes. For the pre-release version, instead of the above ReaPack URL, use this one:

This ReaPack will always contain the latest version, whether a release, or a subsequent pre-release.

Pre-releases are kept as stable as possible, unfortunately by virtue of having less testing time they are more likely to contain bugs.

Your feedback with pre-releases is very much appreciated. See the contact page for details on how to report issues.

It's possible to switch between the release and prerelease ReaPacks, but you first need to uninstall Reaticulate before following the above installation instructions again. (Don't worry, your custom banks won't be affected.)

See the Uninstalling section below for instructions on how to first remove an existing version of Reaticulate if you want to switch between release and prerelease.

The Hard Way (Manual)

If your DAW doesn't have Internet connectivity, you can follow these manual installation instructions:

  1. Download the Reaticulate-<version>.zip file from the latest release of Reaticulate and copy it to your DAW (via USB thumbdrive or whatever)
  2. Open your REAPER resources directory by executing the REAPER action "Show REAPER resource path in Explorer/Finder"
    • On Windows, the default path is %AppData%\REAPER\
  3. Extract the Reaticulate folder contained within the zip file to the Scripts/ directory, so that Scripts/Reaticulate/ is a folder.
    • If Scripts/Reaticulate/ exists from a previous installation you can delete it (or move it out of the way)
  4. Move the folder Scripts/Reaticulate/jsfx into the Effects/ directory (which exists on the same level as Scripts/) and rename jsfx to Reaticulate. Now you should have a Effects/Reaticulate folder that contains the *.jsfx files.
  5. In Reaper, open the Actions dialog and click the Load ... button in the bottom right
  6. Navigate to Scripts/Reaticulate/actions/ and select all files in that directory, and then click the Open button
  7. Invoke the action Script: Reaticulate_Main.lua from the actions list


Access Extensions | ReaPack | Synchronize packages via Reaper's menu to ensure Reaticulate is updated to the latest version.

If Reaticulate does update, you should restart Reaper to ensure the latest version of all Reaticulate scripts are running.
