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


#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:


#427

Take note SP-16 user: You can use a SD card in a USB adapter in both SP-16 and DJS-1000.
So sample in Pioneer and play back in Roland TR-8S


#428

yes… but apples and oranges really… as an ex-ot owner, I don’t think they overlap that much.


#429

not with a wrap of electrical tape around it you wont … :wink:


#430

Just got shipping notice, should be arriving Monday (UK).


#431

^
who did you order with mate btw ?


#432

Red Dog, pre-ordered first day. Think their initial pre-orders have all been fufilled as their release date has moved back on their webpage.


#433

woot! just got my call from GuitarGuitar - Monday, UK!


#434

so what size SD card is everyone going for…?


#435

What‘s the biggest it takes? There‘s your answer.


#436

No idea, probably got some spare small ones lying around. Looking forward to trying out the various ACB models.

Literally one week from out of the blue product announcement to gear acquisition, seems like a really fast launch. Maybe because there was no prolonged hype that I was aware of.


#438

I have a 32gb arriving today, thats the largest I think


#439

Juno has one in stock for those looking.


#440

Someone get it with free Saturday delivery and post some vids up for us :smile:


#441

Apparently the previous model TR-8 actually had good MIDI sync - by secondhand report - so I may try MIDI sync first before resorting to Koma/RYO attenuators and the trigger outs.


#442

The OT does not have modeled TR-808, TR-909, etc; less than half the audio outputs, no trigger outs, no velocity-sensitive drum pad, no TR-REC workflow, etc. etc OTOH it does have stuff the other unit doesn’t, like 3 LFOs per track, trig conditions, etc…


#443

Mines been despatched - Andertons UK

Will be here on Monday


#444

Thanks governor
Yes I am aware the OT doesn’t have those things… it was a comment more on AUS pricing not the features between the too.
Ones a drum machine
Ones a sampler

I could have made it more clear in the original comment


#445

And made of plastic so much for longevity.


#446

Just updated, it will be delivered by this Tuesday !
