The REX players are instruments tha load REX files and play them back according to incoming MIDI notes. There are 128 MIDI notes available. We use the first 36 notes/keys for transposing, stopping and trigging loops. The rest, 128-36=92, are used to trigger individual slices.
Check out the "Reason MIDI key mapping" in the "MIDI Implementation Charts" pdf for how the MIDI notes are mapped.

The 92 slice limit is not applicable when importing REX files to an audio track.
