I posted this elsewhere, but thought that it could be handy here too:

Slicing / mapping is relatively straight-forward. :)
(a) browse to your loop and drag it onto a single key in the Keyboard Mapper

(b) Switch to the Wave Editor, select the loop and slice it (automatically using the Threshold and Transient Slice button at the top) or manually (insert your own slice points)

(c) If needed (and it generally is), zoom in and nudge the slice points into position, add or remove slice points

(d) drag the whole loop (not the slices) onto the [Keyboard mapper] button and thence onto a single key in the Keyboard Mapper and lay out the slices.

(e) drag the mapped group of slices into your DAW host (Reaper in this case) to get the MIDI clip to play them in sequence; click Play.

Interesting, if true ...

Thanks DarkStar, succinct and nicely laid out.
Could you elaborate a bit on how you would use the last step (dragging into Reaper)? Is this just to simply hear the slices at a tempo to check your work, or is there something further you would do with the midi clip?

That gives me a 'chromatic' MIDI clip in the DAW with each note playing back a single slice (hit) of the loop, positioned so that the loop plays back completely.

Typically you would then edit the MIDI clip to transpose the notes (to play different slices), move them (to change the groove) or just use some notes to trigger the slices when you want. Give it a go.

Ok, thanks, understood....just as you would normally do with midi triggering any VSTi..(facepalm). For some reason (not seeing wood for the trees), and because the slices were just laid out in TX16 without further organizing into a usual program (bass drum on 36 etc whatever), the obvious had not occurred to me.
Cheers.
