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


#589

Also how would this even work if it’s a midi slave? Does it stay in time but cut out the audio? Or does it all go tits to the ceiling?


#590

The TR-8 doesn’t cut out between patterns, so I’m sure it can be fixed. My TR-8S has arrived so I will test this today and report back.


#591

I got a response from Roland on their FB by bitching hard about it in CAPS lol.


#592

Here’s what’s happening


#593

I extracted the audio from your video to check on timing, and there is no tempo drift, which could have been even worse.

There is indeed an audible fadeout (clean, but audible). No big deal for me, but I can understand why it’s annoying for others.


#594

thanks for uploading! very poor from Roland.


#595

Also, awesome noise from your speaker, I’m gonna sample that :joy:


#596

This might interest people like me that won’t use the TR-8S in a 1 kit per pattern mode:

I guess there should be no gap with Sw:off while changing patterns.


#597

can you test it please?


#598

It only does that when switching kits, right? If you have the same kit on both patterns, there’s no fade directly before the pattern you’re switching to?

Roland can probably make the silent bit shorter with some smart optimizations, but we’ll never get effects and decay trails across patterns.


#599

check Echo Inspectors aka Lance Harrison and Mark Baumann from Melb / Brisbie and Trinity AU along with Simon Mann and many more from Sydney. @djsm is also here on Elektronauts :slight_smile:

I just was wondering if someone was turning the reverb knobs while here hands were just not on the maschine (see the last minute). Would be also interessting which sounds came from syncussion and all the other stuff. Maybe magic things happend with the roland. definitly some grazy cam movement too.


#601

Same kit. No break between patterns.

The box is isn’t unusable by any means. But. If you wanted to play a seamless live set with multiple kits, then you might take issue with it.

Or like in my case, I wanted to swap some samples in a kit for a track. Well. Now I can’t swap samples without that break.


#602

Interesting thanks for posting. Does it do it with ACB as well or just samples? Any way of minimising it with a drop at the end of a pattern?

BTW Random question - Are you Adonis M Smith?


#603

That’s an ACB kit

Unfortunately, no. That’s not my full name :wink:


#604

Could anyone with a TR-8S please check, if the CCs of the recorded motions/parameters get output via Midi? Thanks!


#605

Remembering how this turned out with Korg (i.e., never fixed on the Elektribe), I will follow with interest what Roland is going to do about that. This is, in my opinion, not a simple problem to fix.


#606

From the looks and sounds of it they have added a fast fade when changing sounds, possibly as a (not very effective) temporary fix to prevent glitches. For me personally it is not a deal breaker as I could work around it or put up with it, but even so I’d expect it to be fixed fairly quickly now that Roland have acknowledged it on their FB page.


#607

Good to know, but not enough to scare me away especially since there is no clipping or loss of timing. This isn’t automatically a doomsday situation but I hope they tweak the algorithm better soon!


#608

there is a loss of timing
