Maelstrom Custom Waves
I don't know how difficult it would be to implement something of this nature - But man, it would be super cool to be able to load custom sound-files into Maelstrom and do the kinds of graintable synthesis we can already do, but with our own SOUNDS!! Even if Propellerhead went ahead and released some kind of stand-alone app that processes custom waveforms into graintables for the Maelstrom, I would pay a price (but would love it more if it were free to registered users)! Just a thought. Anyone else on this bandwagon??

It has been suggested before but I always +1 it. :)
& You bring a great thought.
Make Recycle able to create/edit these tables, in a new "grain/osc mode" or something like that.
I would also like to sample directly to the malstrom but, if i understand it correctly the grain table synthesis method is a bit more complex than a simple, single cycle waveform so, likely not practical.

That's my understanding as well. The reason (no pun intended) we can't currently load our own waves into the synth is because of the proprietary graintable format. HOWEVER, if we could somehow process custom waveforms with an app or tool within Reason, WHAT A GAME CHANGER THAT WOULD BE!!

May be easier to ask Sonic Charge for a Maelstrom 2 ;)

I was sayin, maybe they should consider making Recycle 3 the "one-stop shop" for making Reason specific, custom files.

The usual Rex mode.
A mode for grain tables.
A mode to draw waveforms/LFO that can then be loaded into pulsar.

Oops I guess I'm kind of hijacking your request here. haha sorry, I should make a Recycle 3 thread now. :)

No I totally agree - and also as many others have said, it would be nice if Recycle implementation was integrated into the new version of Reason!
