probably not. Probably can point and click to sequence whatever. But keyboards make it funner.

let me see. You have software samplers, right? You want them to make sounds, right? I've never used Halion, or probably any others except the one that comes with Reason. Now, I can use my mouse to point and click sequence any sounds I want in the Reason software sampler. I can also use my keyboard, but I don't need to.

What software samplers are you using? I'm assuming Halion. What else?

I suppose so it's just kinda a pain in the butt

It seems that most of these programs are available as VSTs in another program. You can probably point and click sequence in whatever host program you would use, if you want to avoid the keyboard.

I would think if you bought a $400.00 softsampler you would have the manual, and it has all the details in it. I use SampleTank 2 and it is easy as pie. It will function as a stand alone or as a VSTi as coolo said.

Yeah i figured it out for some reason i thought when i loaded it up the sounds would too
little did i know i had too import them!
This was my first crack at using a sampler of any type so I was just not informed enough about them to know what i was doing so now i know to read a manual before posting a question when the answers right in the manual
Sorry for being so lazy
