I have just upgraded from Reason 3 to Reason 5 (I know, I'm behind the times but I like programs that work).

In Reason 3, I would import a MIDI file (which I create with an external sequencer) then create instruments. Then I would assign the tracks to instruments. Should I need to change the tracks (a frequent need!), I could delete the tracks without deleting the instruments. After reimporting the MIDI file, I would again assign the tracks to the already existing instruments.

In Reason 5, importing a MIDI file causes a combinator to be created automatically for every track. I can set up the combinators or replace them directly with other instruments. Should I wish to change the tracks, I can delete them without deleting the instruments, but when I reimport the MIDI, new combinators are created.

How I can assign the tracks to the already existing instruments?

This question came from our site for engineers, producers, editors, and enthusiasts spanning the fields of video, and media creation.

You can move-it by drag and drop sequencer clips between tracks. Use "Song Position Pointer tool" to set start point of clips that you wanna move in the beginning of clip.
