Roland TR-8S - (New TR-8 with user samples and individual outs)


#407

Yes ! Good’ol 4 to the floor kick, loads of overdrive and fast paced hi-hats. Just what I need on the highway :fist_left:


#408

Preordered on release. Manual now printed and SD card ordered. Can’t say I’m not excited!

Keeping the DT though, although it is a real shame I can’t get the drum samples I’ve recorded from my synths off it to load onto the TR-8S.


#409

I agree that it would be better to have on board sampling, it momentarily was a deal breaker in my mind for a few days but I ended up preordering anyways. Once I get through putting samples on a card hopefully I’ll be flying and making music with them without too much worry.

Retailers ship dates are all over the place. Anyone know when this will be released? I read earlier in this thread, Friday. But that seems unlikely. Curious


#411

Someone on GS said theirs was shipping today


#412

No kidding! It’s almost as cheap as a nice, comprehensive midi controller. The Drum Machine part is almost free! :slight_smile:


#413

Connect your ZipDrive to the SCSI port, load them into your PC, then send the files to an SD reader connect to the serial port.

Kids these days…


#414

I’m feeling quite laid back about this as both my MacBook Pro & Windows laptop have SD slots built in. I’ll be dropping samples into it straight from the folders in Live which I have on both machines so this should be a doddle.


#415

Wait… What?

Can you elaborate on this please?

I have all voices routed individually, removed from main via menu, and I’ll use the master outs on a stereo mixer channel to bring in/use the on board FX (as they stay on master even if voices are removed)… Is that what you’re talking about, or is there some other magix I don’t know about?

I just did a quick cntrl-F in manual but don’t see anything…


#416

take a look also at the RYO Airtenuators. easiest build and very handy, no rack space or power required


#417

And don’t Koma do an attenuator cable … nifty inline thing with a slider in the middle


#418

Yup, I googled the RYO, whose website pointed to Perfect Circuit Audio - so I went to PCA’s site, searched, and found the KOMA instead of the RYO, lol


#419

yea the komas work fine too. they are just a little fiddly to get the levels right and you might accidentally knock the slider out of position and blast your gear with too hot a gate from the tr8s …


#420

Got one coming, truly excited for this one!
Roland came correct


#421

Who’d you order from?


#422

Guitar Center


#423

Got an eta on shipping? Just curious


#424

Manager said by mid next week, but the GC page says they get more on the 18th so not sure
Hope it arrives next week :nerd_face:


#425

Sweetwater is shipping as of today :sunglasses::sunglasses::sunglasses:


#426

one thing does cross my mind though when looking at this, its exactly the same price in AUS as a second hand OT :astonished::joy:
