Hi, this is Aaron Wolpin with AWOL Audio Productions, and I'm here at The Track Studio in Dallas, Texas, and I'm going to show you how to make a keyboard in Reason from a sample. So, we're talking, you want to record a sneeze and you want to be able to play a keyboard full with sneezes and stuff like that. This is how you do it. So, I've got Pro Tools up in here, and I've got Reason on one track and I've got my MIDI track. So, my MIDI is picking up, I just haven't set to All, and here's Reason. So, we're using the NN-XT plug-in and so, I had to send my output to MIDI to the NN-XT. And then, we just have one, two for the output of Reason. So, now, let's go to Reason. This is just a clean, you know, slate here, in NN-XT. But what we're going to do is, we're going to import a sample. Go here to that folder, Load Sample and I've got this cool, little ah sound here. And I'm going to import that, this is just one sound. But we're going to put it, as to where we can play it at multiple pitches on a keyboard, just like we're playing a keyboard. So, to do that, we need to see how this is, it's a long line. We need to put this on the root note, the root note is that shaded note there on C-three. And we're going to say, that's the original pitch. And then, what we're going to do, is we're going to copy, since this is highlighted. We're just going to do Command C, to copy it, click out of it and let's paste it a bunch of times. So, now, what we need to do, is we need to click on the second one and we need to move that over, just one over. Click on the third, let's move it over another, so on and so forth. We can do this for all the keys on the keyboard, but for right now, to save time. I'm just going to go ahead and do these few. We can lower just one note, here we go. So, now, we have, now, we're going to be able to change the pitches, it's really funny. But we'll be able to do this, and play a song with it, you know. That's pretty much the gist of it, I hope this helps. My name's Aaron Wolpin, thank you for watching.
