Reason is a sound designer’s dream machine. And now with Live Sampling all those amazing sounds, combinations, drum patterns and spaced out synthesizers can be recorded, mapped and played back under your flying fingers! The possibilities are absolutely endless! And that’s why we called upon Mo Volans (our favorite Reason Master) to show you the “ins and out” of sampling in Reason 5.
Sampling is an art, so Mo takes you deep into the rack to show you how an artist creates musical sample instruments to enhance your sonic experience and give new life to your tracks. So join Reason Master Mo as he educates us about the best ways to utilize the new Live Sampling capabilities in Reason 5.
This is a good tutorial for the basics of live sampling, but since this is based on Reason 5, it may be confusing when apply what you learned to Reason 7. This is considering the new master section which was not present in the version used in this tutorial. Still this is useful in understanding how to record and edit samples, rather than routing.

Great course! Tons of info on sampling in Reason that is still up to date for Reason 7. Shows how to use the NN19, NN-XT and Kong's sample recording and editing abilities with ease.

I've been using Reason a long time and I thought I knew pretty much all there was to know about the sampling units in reason. I was definitely wrong. Good video, shows all you need to know about the new live sampling features and showed me some of the old stuff I never knew. I do wish they'd gone a bit deeper into sample manipulation but I'm sure that will be covered in the future.
