Sample Flip Basics: The Importance of Listening

The Making of "Chocolate Sun" 5-Part video series

This is "How I Reason" 

Learn how to chop and flip samples using Propellerhead Reason and the M-Audio Oxygen25 USB/MIDI keyboard controller.

Find out how to use the Propellerhead Reason, Sony Sound Forge and Propellerhead ReCycle to "flip a sample" by watching this video. I walk you through the creation of a sample flip beat I call "Chocolate Sun.".

The NNXT sampler in Reason allows you more control in manipulating the samples you chose to use in your music. This is not a comprhensive tutorial about using the NNXT to sample flip, but it is enough to get you started using some features of the NNXT to make your music better.
