    I am most n00b with Reason 4.0...Just got it and am fumbling my way round slowly but surely:)

    For now though, i am stuck on this question..

    Can i assign different instruments (church organ - bells - brass) to different parts of my midi controller so i can play the different sounds without having to switch between the instruments?

    I have set up a few single keys on controller so i can jump forward and back between the instruments but i don't like it..too much chance of being on wrong sound when playing live. So was wondering if i can assign say, 2 octaves for one instrument and another octave or single key etc for another sound and so on?

    I shall keep reading and noodling for now but if this is something that can be done...even an "affirmative" reply would be enough to rock ones socks!:)

    Many thanks

    It's been a while since I used Reason and then it was version 3 but it would be possible by putting all of the synths/samplers you want to use inside a single combinator device and mapping the key range in there.

    Also possible to do it in the NNXT sampler if you're working with samples.
