external sample editor for NNXT
I have been using reason for a while..
has anyone seen an external sample editor? I thought I did a few years ago but cant find it now..
I would like something that can drag and drop audio files to create zones.
get a nice BIG and easy to fiddle with ranges/ velocites etc..
now its all a bit fiddly?!
I have played with the one in live and thats a bit easier.. but I want to use reason!!!!!
ps my version of reason is ancient! is this in later versions?
Awave can read+write NN-XT (.sxt) files: FMJ Software
But this tool is quite expensive and I don't consider it "more" user friendly than NN-XT itself.
thanks! but forget to say I am a mac....
whilst 99 isnt cheap - I'm willing to pay for it...
I got a load of non musical sample stuff and its really tricky to get it in the right order using the microscopic remote editor window!
But that narrows down the choices. I could propose to use soundfonts instead. While they don't take full advantage of the NN-XT features, they are fairly compatible and seamless to use with NN-XT.
Look here for a soundfont editor: Polyphontics
I have tried it years ago and it looked promising, but had some stability issues. Maybe you could test it with the demo version.
thanks I will do!
just found this..
checking your link out right now thanks!
hmm that soundfon thing doesnt look much better than the reason editor..
basically I have like 100 samples to map to 100 keys..
trim the start on them
and then maybe drag them around into order on the keyboard ( they dont really have a definite pitch to use... )
wondering if I can get a demo of the app I linked - I dont have the APp store on my OS and I don need the aggro of upgrading to try this out!!
I don't know how old school you are, but NN-XT got a little less fiddly in v4 or certainly v5. So subtle I don't know if anyone noticed, but it is much better at things like setting root key assignments for multiple samples, compared to v2 and v3. You can lock root keys to drag samples around willy-nilly. Or just turn down the PITCH > K.TRACK setting to avoid having to think about it.
So I would ignore those hit-and-miss patch conversion tools and concentrate on the very best sample editor. Decent offline editor + online Reason is an amazing combination; I don't think peeps appreciate the UNIVERSAL AUDIO FORMAT that is sampling! Anything - your Nord Modular, that NI Massive patch, those VSTs that won't get ported, your impulse response reverb textures that would bring most systems to a crawl, can become a fully-fledged, expressive in-rack instrument. Beautiful!
hmm I'm in reason 3.o
whats buggin me? minute screen means I am forever scrolling,, left right up down
I dont need deep looping tools or LFO settings..
all I need is fast simple EASY assign 1 sample to one key - repeat x 100.. I dont even need velocity zones.. altho I might try that..
and since the samples are non chromatic - I want to be able to reorder them on the keyboard easily in a way that makes sense to me..
to be honest I have the sampler in Live and thats better - however I dont want to use live as it fights with my DAW...
Okay I can't quite remember how this differs in v3, but in v5 it's as simple as:
1. Multi-select 100 samples in the NN-XT sample browser, click OK.
2. Right-click and choose "Automap Zones Chromatically"
3. Click LOCK ROOT KEYS button
4. Reorder them as you see fit
5. World domination
yeah its step 4 thats annoying me...
doesnt the world I am dominating seem a bit inconveniently small?
take a look!
