Easy Way to Preview Beats with Reaper

Maybe this has already been posted, but I couldn’t readily find it…

I’ve collected bunches of drum MIDI files and finding one to use in a song I’m putting together has always been a bit of a challenge as far as previewing a collection of them to make a pick to fit the song. Found a Youtube video that shows the use of Reapers ‘Media Explorer’ that really makes life much easier to demo a drum pattern and get an idea how it would sound linked together.

I keep wishing for a BBM plugin for Reaper :wink:

A couple of weeks ago I made a Kontakt instrument with the same mappings as the Rock with Bass kit.
With this you can “preview” the sound of your midi track in Reaper (or any other DAW that support VST instruments).
