Question Non-Western Scales such as Chinese/Pentatonic?

I'm just curious whether you can do these in Reason. And if so, how?

I only have Reason 4.0.

Thank you!

For those of you who haven't looked into this stuff (I didn't until just recently), this site does a good job explaining it:

I would upgrade to 6.5 if I were you.
There is an upcoming rack extension called "AutoArp" that does exactly what you are asking.

Open the note lane or attach a Matrix, draw in the notes of the scale, and off you go.

Insen and Hirajoshi are nice-sounding oriental scales, too.

Thank you, dub08 and RXTX!

I tried out a lot of scales the way RXTX said (drawing in the notes of the scale), and it worked pretty well.
I'll think about getting Reason 6.5. I know they just incorporated what Record could do into Reason, so now seems like a good time to buy. Still, these products are really expensive, so I don't know.
