You could start playback at any point in the waveform. Sometimes I have no clue at times what is on any particular file. And I'm starting at the beginning each time in the Reason Browser - sometimes with a bunch of silence before the audio kicks in.
The recent Grain video shows this can be done in Reason as an instantaneous reading of the wav file is displayed as it is dragged into Grain - time referenced here:
I've actually used the Reaper browser (Media Explorer) beside Reason at times. It can do a bit more than a play wait and hear preview.
I can even drag a file from the Reaper browser right into Reason.
Since Reason can now do this with Grain, and there are time and pitch shifting abilities in Reason already, how easy would it be to implement any of that into Reason - sorta like this?: (excuse the crappy cut and paste )
And maybe even highlight a section of the preview and import that right into the sequencer...
Does anyone have any thing they would like to see added to the Reason browser?
Or is it fine the way it is?
.AND OF COURSE, I think we have all come to expect that there are SOME workflow enhancements in every upgrade.
