Please follow the steps below in order to use MASCHINE's sampling feature within Reaper.
- Insert MASCHINE on a new Virtual Instrument Track and select OK to confirm.
- As we only require one stereo output in this example, select No when the Build Routing Confirmation window appears.
- Insert an instrument plug-in of your choice on a new instrument track. The audio of this track will be sampled later on in the MASCHINE plug-in. In this example, we will use BATTERY 4. Select OK to confirm.
- Select No when the Build Routing Confirmation window appears.
- Click the FX button in the track header to open the BATTERY 4 interface.
- Load any Kit from the Library browser. In this example we have loaded the Richard Devine 2 Kit.
- In the MASCHINE instrument track, click the I/O button in the track header to view the Routing configuration for MASCHINE. Select Battery 4 from the Receives drop-down menu.
- In the BATTERY 4 instrument track, click the I/O button in the track header to display Routing configuration for BATTERY. Uncheck Master/parent send so the BATTERY 4 output is ONLY sent to the MASCHINE send.
- On the BATTERY 4 instrument track select Insert > New MIDI Item to create a MIDI sequence.
- Enter some MIDI events in the sequence.
- In the MASCHINE instrument channel, click the FX button in the track header to open the MASCHINE interface.
- Select a Sampler instrument on an empty Sound slot via the drop-down menu.
- Go to the Sample Editor by clicking on the waveform icon.
- Click the RECORD tab to configure the Sampler inputs. In this example, select Ext for external input from the host followed by In 1 L+R (to select a stereo input) from the Input drop-down menu.
- In the RECORD tab select Sync as record type.
- Set the recording Length to 2 Bars.
- Click the Start button to put the sampler in record ready mode.
- Press play in Reaper to start the recording. After 2 bars have passed the recording will automatically stop and a waveform will appear in the Sample Editor.
The above steps can be repeated to record audio samples to different Sound modules or record multiple audio samples in the same Sound module.
