Bringing files into reason

I'm having lots of fun creating in reason and have mastered the
basics. Saw a mate of mine in Leeds a couple of weeks ago who has some korg mini studio
thing that he uses and he sent me down a couple of tracks via email in Mp4 format. You
know what I'm going to ask, is there any way I can play them just as a stereo track in
reason to plonk along with and do a bit of adding on?
I think the answers no
but I'd appreciate a definitive yes or no
Reason doesn't really do audio as such. But it does have 3 samplers, so you can load in
sizeable chunks of audio into any of those. But you'd have to export the file from mp4
first. Something like wav or aiff etc would do.
I pop whatever file I want to use in ReCycle. It's a program used to create REX loops from
samples for the Dr REX machine in Reason. I'm not sure how big the files can be but you
create the loop in ReCycle and load it in a Dr REX machine. There you go.
Most audio editors should be able to convert that for you. iTunes or QuickTime should also
do it. Recycle is handy, but you'd need to buy that, and it's only really good for
converting and chopping up a couple of bars or so at a time. That said, I do use it quite
