Response:

The first thing is that you don't actually chop samples in Reason. The sample chopping is actually done in a separate software program - audio editor.

I use Sony's Sound Forge 8 to cut samples from a song. Then, I use ReCycle 2.1 to make smaller sample chops/slices from those sample cuts.

I'll make a video on this to show you what I mean, but the process goes like this...

  • Listen to a song
  • Cut sample chunks from original song and save as WAV files
  • Open each sample chunk in ReCycle, make my slices and save RX2 files
  • Import RX2 files into Reason's NN-XT advanced sampler devices
  • Tweak the sample slices in the NN-XT as needed

I know it sounds like a lot, and there are probably some faster/better ways to do this, but this is my process and it works for me.

Let me know how I can help you develop your process.

Grace and Peace!
