Hey whats up people? im new to this board and i like the board alot from what i have been reading. I got a roland fantom that i use for sounds and also use reason 3.0 for making drum beats. I use ableton as my daw. I am trying to figure out how i can use the 16 pads on the fantom to trigger sounds in reason.
i think i have it set up correctly as the keys work fine but with the pads some of them work and trigger sounds and some of them don't and it is entirely arbritary. like for example, say i load a loop in dr rex with 16 slices, like pad 2 will be the 8th slice and so on and pads 14 15 and 16 will have no sound triggered to it.
i also have a similar question. i have a fantom x6 and reason 3, with a digi 003 interface. i want to be able to use it as a controller in reason. when i had the mbox i was able to use the fantom as a controller but for some reason i could never recford the notes i was playing on my fantom into reason. now with the 003 i cant hear the notes at all.
Blackanimal, are you sure the fantom and reason are connected properly (midi and audio?). I have the audiophile internal soundcard which has the midi in and out and audio in and out and have the midi out from the fantom to the midi in on the interface and as well the audio outs of the fantom to the audio in's on the interface.
As well, you gotta add a control surface in the preferences and then select which bus to assign it to. From there you can just click on each device in the sequencer, hit the record and play button's and start recording.
I just want to figure out how to use the pads properly with reason.
