Haha, yeah l have read the manual. But it doesn't seem to do what l want.
I don't think any device on Reason will do this. So l guess this would be more of a feature request than anything else.
You say Reason will do what l'm asking, so how is it done? How do you mix two samples together, then apply an ADSR envelope? And yes, a sample editor is a different ballgame, but something basic wouldn't go amiss, basic as in what l'm asking for. After all, the old Amiga trackers let me mix samples together and then select any portion and apply "delta filter" or "fade in" or "fade" out.
You proposed a route to that piano sample. It was vague. I am quite certain the path to that sample was what l mentioned. And l'd like to test it out and as an asides, l'm wondering if l can do it on Reason right now. Because l'm not even sure what software in my collection will simply mix two waves together. I don't have any standalone wave editor programs. But your solution - "it's a preset" "it's a preset maybe with other stuff added to it" doesn't solve the problem of the total synthesis of the sound the guy was asking about. And yeah, l'm sure it's about layering octaves. I would prove it if l could find a simple way of mixing two sound waves together righ tnow.
