Live Sampling in Reason

Sample any sound source into any of Reason’s samplers. Just hook up a sound source to the rack's sampling input and you are ready to start sampling. Use a mic, a turntable, an instrument or the entire Reason mix.

Sampling in Reason is simple and straightforward – all part of the creative process of making music. Hit the sample button and Reason starts sampling. Reason will detect the sample start automatically. You can sample when Reason is running too if you like – no need to stop the music.

If needed, bring up the built-in sample editor to set start and end points, loop points and more. This works for all loaded samples, too – not only the ones you have sampled.

Live sampling together with pitch detection of root key and automatic zone mapping makes it dead easy to sample an instrument and map the samples across the keyboard. You'll create your own multi-sampled instruments for NN-XTand NN-19 in an instant.
