Normalizing doesn't appear to affect the actual WAV, again Reaper has non-destructive editing, like most DAWs.
I did a quick test to check this, however you should always have make a backup copy of your original tracks anyway.
Alternative method instead of normalizing:
- right click on the track
- select 'TAKE'
- select 'TAKE VOLUME ENVELOPE'
- a red line wil appear on the track, use your mouse to raise the line and the WAV will get bigger as the volume is increased.
this way you can make the WAV bigger for editing and return to '0' (original volume) if needed.

To increase the level of the dry input signal you have to go to the mixer in standalone mode (btw. some settings are only available in standalone mode, like the mixer and input settings). Change the fader position or hit the +18 button, but normaly there is no need to. The fader and button settings in the mixer come before the record in the DAW and are not processed afterwards.
this was covered earlier in the thread.

or you can just right click on the track and select 'Apply track FX to items as new take'
this applies all VST FX loaded on that track/channel to the take, so be sure to bypass or disable the FX for that channel before listening to the new take.

Please excuse my broken english. Hopefully i could help.
cheers
the UX2 & UX1 puts a dry signal out on sends 3 & 4, so you can just change your track input settings to 3 for mono or 3 & 4 for stereo instead of messing with your standalone. this allows you to record BOTH wet and dry at the same time using 2 different tracks.

you change to the 3.0 theme by clicking on 'OPTIONS', selecting 'THEMES', then select 'DEFAULT_3.0'
