Question from a subscriber:

watz up taurus beats, i just wondered if you could give me some advice on the best way to chop up samples in the reason 4 program? i am not really familiar with using of the music samples and would like to be able to build some of my tracks using them. would be much appreciated if you could. thanks.

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!

Dear Taurus,
I was searching on the internet to find out how I can possibly learn how to compose music. I write alot of lyrics but have the slightest clue on how to create music for them. Anyway I came across your website in the search engine and after listening to all, I mean every instrumental on here, I just had to tell you WOW!!! Your music is so heartfelt. Absolutely beautiful. And I must say very inspiring!!. Hopefully someday I can find a way to let myself be heard through music. Good Luck in all you do.

Sincerely Deena
