Default Working with tracks dedicated to a single sample?

Greetings, I've been trying to find a better way to use tracks dedicated to identical media items (for example, a "Kick" track that just plays the same kick sample). I don't think Reaper has an option like FL, which allows one to assign a track to a sample - if I'm wrong please let me know.

So I tried coming up with a custom action that copies the previous media item on the current edit cursor position, with Item Navigation: Select and Move to Previous Item -> Edit: Copy Items -> SWS: Undo edit cursor move -> Paste Items/Tracks, but the undo edit cursor step isn't behaving properly.

Any ideas?

it will better if you state clearly what you want to accomplish
I assume you want something like a kick on just certain beats in the measure????

If that it it explain it better plz

Much easier to do one whole bar and loop the media item.

Or you could stick your sample in ReaSamplomatic and use midi, which would be easier still.

my advice, DON'T try to fit FL studio stuff in Reaper.

Yes FL will let you "assign" a sample to a track, which you also have to assign to a pattern.

In Reaper, one track will be your sampler, your pattern maker, and your mixer track all at once. No need figure anything out. It really is the same exact thing, just easier and [dare i say it] not as pretty.

I really just want to be able to more easily work with a track on the case I'm using it for a single sample repeatedly. FL is very useful at that because it allows you to "draw" the sample on the timeline on that track, and that's what I want. Also making sure I won't accidentally include "foreign" samples on the track helps as well.
