Actually, I've been running into an odd behavior of sounds muting when
they should played just within in the regular DB interface (naught to do
with loading MIDI into reason), though I don't know whether this is an
odd memory problem brought on by my having spent a lot of time recently
mucking about with a dbkit linked to the giant nskit7 samples or whether
it's something else hiccupy in the recent beta releases.

But sometimes I find that if I've got a few samples "stacked up" on a
beat, DB will simply ignore some or all of them on play back -- and
deleting a few of the samples doesn't necessarily cause the "missing"
samples to come back.  Sometimes in such a case, though, I can open a
new dbsong and program the same pattern and it will play just fine from
the new dbsong.  Alternatively, DB sometimes crashes on playback.  Odd!
 I can't help but think it's some kind of memory thing, but that's just
my uninformed guessing.


ps - A handy looking little book called _The Drummer's Bible_ just
arrived from Amazon for me.  It's kind of a "rhythm patterns for
dummies" thing, and so quite handy for a non-drummer like me to use as a
crash course on different types of grooves :)  I plan to do myself up
some dbsongs that are basically just collections of different patterns
which can then be copied over to other dbsongs as needed.
