The new sampler from Reason Studios, Mimic (a CREATIVE sampler) is great fun. It’s great for quick and dirty sample mangling. It has for example MPC-like slicing but it also has the fantastic Reason time-stretching algorithms build-in. It’s a bit like the Ableton Simpler device but time-stretching does sound way better in Mimic. Must say it does lack oversampling like all Reason devices, but other than that I think it is a cool device.
Here are a few measures I build this morning using legato in Mimic to repitch the loop:
Mimic Creative Sampler is available as early access to Reason+ subscribers. Early access is a sort of beta testing thing since Mimic is not yet 100% finished. I am still bug reporting things as we speak…
P.S. CDM wrote a nice blogpost for this nifty device.
