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


#1015

The samples are mono on the TR-8s, correct?

A few of the earlier presenters said it was stereo, but I just want to make sure as I think that was a mistake.


#1016

You can load both mono and stereo samples


#1017

If there was an option to clear all kits at once I would have done it by now too. Personally I haven’t bothered as I never use the 808 kit so it wouldn’t help me. I have created my own default 909 kit and I just copy that whenever I want a default kit.


#1018

I’ve made a new ER-1 kit. Is anyone interested in this one? Let me know and I will upload.


#1019

I usually just randomly start with any kit. I like that because FX settings, pan, etc are already set up. Then I just tweak to taste rather than start from scratch.


#1020

But I have created/tweaked a kit that’s my go to lately. Has all my FX, assignable outs, etc ready to go. Create new pattern and assign that kit. That really helps.


#1021

Yes. Yes. please. Your kits rule. Thank you!


#1022

Sorry for the delay, had a busy few days. Here is the Electribe ER-1 kit for TR-8S :smiley:

Using the Tr8S trigger out to the SH01a. The SH01a is becoming my favorite synth. So simple. So versatile


#1024

both Red Dog and Rimmers are indicating more units into the UK this week or next…


#1025

Trying to break out of a rut. Just going for it with the trigger out to to the Toraiz


#1026

The more I play with this thing the more I appreciate Elektron’s sequencers… I sooooo badly want trig conditions on my TR.


#1027

autofill not doing it for you as a similar sort of pattern evolution tactic?


#1028

Haha, nice! I was starting to feel worried for your DJS-1000.


#1029

HAHA! That’s the Toraiz AS-1 my friend :slight_smile:

You can feel bad for the Toraiz sampler. It’s currently in the corner like a kid that got punished :confused:


#1030

Yea. There’s not much random about the TR8S. You could set an LFO to the gain/volume to get sounds to come in and out randomly though.

Or…tap the trigs in and out yourself :wink:


#1031

Also, if any one is looking for an 8S - Patchwerks in Seattle appears to have some


#1032

I miss 'em a little too, but I also really appreciate that with the TR8S you have 8 pattern variations and can assign 2 of them to be fills. You have to play your variations instead of program them, which is what I think you can boil down the main differences between the machines to (playability vs programmability)


#1033

I guess I would miss PRE, NOT-PRE, NEI-, and NOT-NEI the most due to the unique kinds of rhythmic counterpoint you can get quickly with these. 80% of the fun in the x:y types seems to be covered pretty well by the 8 variations that can be chained and auto-filled at certain bar intervals. Not a huge fan of the probability based TRC for beats personally


#1034

I’m still a bit confused about the CTRL/parameter recording. Is it right that you can only have automation of 1 parameter per track at any given time?

Is it then still possible to edit the other parameters after you recorded a CTRL line? Using the value encoder?

What if you change the parameter assigned to CTRL when you already have a modulation going on? Does the new parameter starts being modulated and the previous ones sits at the last value of the automation before the change?
