Dumping my Hardware Sampler
Oh man, I just grabbed the ReLoad utility the other day, and decided to rip all my Akai CDs to Reason format. When I finally got them ripped, I opened up one of the 128MB Piano patches. "Oh," I said to myself, "these patches split the keymaps, and I remember when I merged these on the Akai to one single piano patch, it was a several hour nightmare of loading the new sections, copying things over, and then saving the beast back to disk. Man, I don't want to have to do that again!" Then I sat back and thought for a second and said, "I bet those Prop Dudes were pretty smart, and if they were thinking like me, they'd let me do things easier than that sampler." So, on a whim, I opened a second instance of NN-XT, loaded the next keybank in that sampler, selected the samples, CTRL-C, back to the first NN-XT, CTRL-V, and Voila! There were two keymaps in one sampler. Five minutes later, I had all six keymaps on one sampler, after which I saved it out, reloaded it to test, and was up and running.
Now that I know it's this easy, there's no way I'm going back to using that hardware sampler. Anyone wanna buy a S6000? ;)

That tip is good to know, StaticEngn - thanks! I sold my ASR-10 the day after I got Reason - never looked back. I even dumped all of my sound library with that thing; that's how impressed I was with Reason. So I think it's great that not only have you been enlightened with Reason and get to make some extra change selling that old sampler, but you also get to keep all of your old sounds!
I love ReLoad - damn fast, too!
