What software to use?
 
Hi

I am fairly new to Reason 2.5 but am slowly getting there, however I am now looking for a piece of software that will enable me to edit, cut, mix, manipulate a music cd, .wav or .mp3 file and then stick it in to Reason to play around with further.

Anyone know of any decent software/tool that will allow me to do this?

Thanks

remember that Reason doesnt do analog audio. You can load various bits of audio into the Reason samplers but this is for playback within the samplers. There is no facility within Reason to mix/edit analog audio. You will need a separate host for this (a rewireable one would be preferable) like Nuendo, CubaseSX, Sonar, Digital performer, Logic Audio etc....

Sounds like you need an audio editor...
 
For cutting up/editing and extracting sounds you need an audio editor.

There are few out there:

Steinberg Wavelab if you're loaded.

Goldwave if you're skint - costs nothing to try - and is great quality

Sound forge is used by a good few people.

From here you can save your audio files and import into Reason NN-19, NN-XT, Redrum, or Recycle them and then open your loop into Dr Rex within Reason.

And alot more out there.

The programs mentioned by drumyon are sequencers, which are more for layering audio files on a time line and producing a mixed track

Hope this helps - ollie.
