How To Add Samples In Reason 4
Question from a subscriber:
How do you add a sample in the akai mpd32?
Let's see...The samples are actually stored in a device in Reason and the MPD (or Oxygen8) just triggers the sample to play. The two devices I use fr sampled tracks are DRREX and NNXT. You could also use the NN19, but the NNXT is like the upgrade.I use the DRREX when I want to match the sample tempo to my track (beat matching). This comes in real handy when I just want to loop a sample and match the BPM. I use the NNXT for more creative stuff because it gives me more control of the sample. You can import a sample as a loop or as "chops/slices" in both devices. In my vids, you can see that I use the MPD alot and I'm triggering the samples in the NNXT.
