Drum Sequencer Player needs a way to drag midi like Redrum

This forum is for discussing the Reason Rack Plugin, the version of the Reason rack that runs as a VST3, AU, AAX in other DAWs.

Players in RRP are useless without a way to drag midi from them into your DAW imo. I would use Reason for my drums if I could drag midi from the drum sequencer or drag audio into my DAW like we can with Maschine.

If you attach the player to a midi out you can record the Player output to your DAW sequencer.

I agree though, getting stuff in and out of the RRP should be much easier.

Getting midi into Reason standalone could be much better too, as an non RRP user I was under the impression that the devices had a little icon that would allow you to drag n drop the midi?

After reading this I'm assuming that it's not available on the players but is on devices which have an internal sequencer?
VST 2.4 MIDI It's definitely on the list of todos
Using Reason since version 1 is R11 going to be my final version :shock:

As far as I know you would need to use the record function but I'm not sure I only use RRP.

It's not drag 'n' drop, but most Players have Send To Track, which is easy to use. Sadly, this feature is absent from the RRP versions of Players.

I'm trying to use Mimic multi slot with the drum seq patterns in S1 without using automation. Using a player doesn't, work how do you programmed steps in the drum seq trigging Mimic while also hook to a midi out? What are the routing to make it work I'm drunk from Don Julio lol.

Routing from Reason is a hassle I figured I just use S1's pattern sequencer since I know Mimic slots start from C1.

Put the mimic and the midi out in a combi and the player on top. I don’t know how midi routing works in S1 but in Cubase you can just select the Reason midi out in the input of the instrument.

Yeah I see I need 8 midi out devices for each slot but for some reason when I record the midi data in S1 it doesn't play Mimic even though I see the midi coming in on the channel and RRP selected as the midi source. I'm just going to use S1 pattern sequencer before lose inspiration to jam out.

Thanks

10-4 I figured out a workflow I'ma try out and create a template with it. I placed two Mimics in a combi with one using multi slot for kick,snare etc... and the other for 808's/bass on pitch slot. Use key range in combi so notes don't overlap. Top instrument channel in S1 controls 1st mimic and second controls the other. My goal was to find a way to quickly find the key of my drums and tune them then go straight to programming I think I've found a solution.

I wouldn't say useless, but definitely not as simple as drag and drop. I would love it if they were capable of such a feature.
