I'm not sure if this has been posted before, sorry if it has. Does anyone know if you can assign samples to individual keys on a MIDI keyboard in Reason 4? I wanted to use my MIDI keyboard as a drum machine if you get me, like say using the ReDrum and assigning a different drum hit to a certain key on my keyboard.

Oh, the keyboard I'm using is an M-Audio Oxygen V2.

Any help will be appreciated!

The way I do it for drums, not sure if it works for every keyboard though

Load sample in redrum

Right Click the Little play button on the samples redrum channel

Click Edit Remote Overide Mapping

The Choose control surface (MIDI Keyboard)

Tick Learn From Surface

Press the Key You want to use

Then Click OK

Repeat for as many parts of the kit as you like

Hope that helps
