The NN-XT is Reason’s advanced, fully-featured sampler unit. It’s been around for a while, having been added to the software when it reached version 2 back in 2002. Fire it up and you’re presented with a small, unassuming interface that gives hands-on control over the global parameters for a patch, while the more detailed Remote panel, which contains the keymap display and the rest of the controls, can be ‘unfolded’ when you need it with a single click.
Patch building is a breeze - it’s so easy to take a collection of multisamples and quickly mould them together. This is testament to Propellerhead’s devotion to making Reason easy to use, but like so many other elements of the software, NN-XT still offers enough to keep even pros happy.
