Re: Do you think reason will ever get a better sampler?

The overdue sampler upgrade is one of my bugbears. It could be done without even changing the fundamentals of the NN-XT. One of the most basic and important features - one that has been common on samplers since the 90's - is a non-destructive loop crossfade with a customizable length (say, from a f...

That's pretty stupid. Why would people not want more toys to play around with?
maybe they want a better sequencer, piano roll, mixer, things that you can't buy in the shop
Well I still don't see people complaining about a good sampler. It's definitely what reason is missing.

Re: Do you think reason will ever get a better sampler?

If Props stays on the device-releasing trajectory, a new sampler seems incumbent. I just wonder if it'll be part of a Reason update or as a standalone RE purchase, like Umpf or Layers. I hope they do :P I think they should make a good sampler as part of a reason update. I mean the nnxt and nn19 are...

Re: Do you think reason will ever get a better sampler?

Also how is "luxury" a good argument against a good sampler? god damn... Thats my opinion. Sorry if it does not fit your opinion and your religion. God damn... So do you think reason should stop being updated? because everything else is just luxury. We pretty much have everything we need to produce...

Re: Do you think reason will ever get a better sampler?

I'm sure it could be wroth it. I just think it's pointless to campaign too vigorously for something you have no control over. Having a say and an opinion is great. Throwing your toys out of the pram when others have a different view, not so much. Well I was just asking what people think, not really...

Re: Do you think reason will ever get a better sampler?

I don't see why not. Europa and Grain prove that new native devices are still on the cards. I would be surprised if it was a high priority right now as vsts opened up Kontakt etc but maybe as new options open up in that field maybe a props programmer will get inspired and... who knows. I still thin...

Re: Do you think reason will ever get a better sampler?

The Samplers in Reason need switchable time stretching, everything else is luxury... Or what do you really need that Abletons Sampler has? There's just so much that their sampler/simpler have. There's an envelope section, so you can slice loops and it will apply that envelope to every slice instead...

Do you think reason will ever get a better sampler?

I've been looking into abletons sampler/simpler and holy crap there's just so much functionality. The nnxt/nn19 don't even come close and the edit mode doesn't have much either. Grain sample manipulator is beast in it's own category but it still doesn't have a lot of the functions. Very excited to s...

Audio interfaces, yet another thread.

Everyone always talks about audio interfaces being this holy grail of music production and how they'll make your sound so much clearer and how you need one to get the cleanest mixes and on and on. So I got an audient id14 and am using the headphone amp with the hd650s and there's absolutely no quali...

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

knowing propellerhead they'd just say 24bit is enough and you should rewire for 32bitdepth exporting or 64bitdepth. That's a bummer. Sometimes I feel like switching daws because they ignore their fanbase. I bet you they wouldn't have allowed VSTs if they didn't think it was a good business move.

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

I'm not arguing that there aren't work arounds, I'm just saying 32 bit should be an option as it is with most daws. It has benefits. You missed my point. Exporting to 32bit is the workaround. Not hitting 0dB when sending to a mastering engineer is proper protocol. Otherwise there are no sonic (hear...

I'm not arguing that there aren't work arounds, I'm just saying 32 bit should be an option as it is with most daws. It has benefits. It has exactly ONE benefit. As for “why not”, it’s likely only because the Props tend to move slow and if anything they tend to advocate for features that cannot be a...

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

1) I'm sure having the conversion process not act like a limiter is a good thing. 2) If your mastering engineer ever has any problems, he can just turn it down and the peaks are still there, instead of contacting you to make a miniature change. That doesn't really make it superior. Not clipping you...

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

Yeah sure 1 and 2 are the same reason, but there's still context. It's a tedious job to have to make a tiny change, re export and send the file again. Why not just 32 bit? Who needs a converter to limit anyway and it's a one time implementation that will last for a very long time and will be compet...

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

Well 32 bit is still better, your point is that you can work around it. Nobody is arguing with you that you can't, but clearly 32 bit is still superior when exporting. Also the the music you listen to doesn't get pushed to freaking -4 RMS. I think you may be trying to correlate bit depth with loudn...

Just because you can work around it doesn't mean that it's useless and that it shouldn't be implemented. It is one feature that will please everybody and stay as the set standard for a very long time, I don't see why it shouldn't be implemented. I don’t see why it shouldn’t be implemented either, b...

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

Well you are saying that 24 bit is plenty. We still get good benefits for going to 32 bit so why is it not the standard? it makes sense. I could see the argument for 64 bit, but 32 bit still has good benefits. Propellerheads have a talented team, I'm sure they could do it in no time [emoji14] There...

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

So 32 bit is the recommended bit depth to export at by every mastering engineer, literally every DAW except Reason has it implemented, but you are going to go ahead and say "NO!

Re: 32 bit depth exporting coming soon?

It's not all about hearing. It's about quality, and yes your peaks getting chopped off like it's a limiter is audible (sometimes not very, but it's bad enough and we need a solution, which there is (32 bit depth export)). Also how can I compare 32 bit vs 24 bit if I only use reason and I can't expo...
