    Hi, I'm a big fan of the upcoming Behringer RD-9. I owned a TR909 between '98-'09, used and serviced 2 other machines and currently use a TR-8s until my RD-9 arrives. Also I have a background in beta testing well known music software pluggins.

    From the video's I've seen so far it appears the authentic mode on the RD-9 doesn't have a properly tuned hihat. You can change that in the enhance mode for sure, but that makes the authentic mode "less authentic" imho, being a nerdy purist wanting a solid "authentic" mode.

    Funny enough, I also notice a simular detuning on the TR-8s, which needs to be set a -30 value on the 909 hihat tuning to get to a normal TR909 hihat sound. This makes me think the tuning of the TR-8s is transfered to the RD-9, instead of using the original machine as a reference.

    Youtube examples, original:

    Behringer RD-9 in authentic mode:

    https://youtu.be/7tC0Eq4qgGc?t=240

    https://youtu.be/Y8TJ48nk5R4?t=506 ("you can't tune them on the original mode")

    Can anyone at Behringer tell me if this authentic tuning can be fixed with an upcoming firmware upgrade ? I would really like that, being trully authentic for live jamming without having to manually have to tune the hihat in enhance mode which also affects the other instruments.

    Thanks in advance for your time :) !

    hello, yesterday I bought RD-8, tried to update, but failed, downloaded the program Zadig 2.5, but I accidentally changed the drivers on the RD-8 itself, and now it says "No device detected" in SYNTHTRIBE V2.5.3, after that I tried to install 1.3.5, I succeeded, they advised me to find SYNTHTRIBE V2.0 on the Internet, but I could not find the version under SYNTHTRIBE V2.5.3

      No1sketchie I had similar problems. my solution was that windows doesn't like a huge list of USB devices. , I used a tool called USBDeview to find the cache and deleted all of those in the list it generates. (it doesn't delete the drivers but just the prefetch data cache) reboot and then RD-8 should show up in the Synthtribe welcome screen. ? HTH

    Lo and behold, I power it on, all semms to work, connect usb cable to my rd-8. launch latest synthtool on mac, alerted firmware update required, it bricked it AGAIN. Same usb cable and computer I updated my td-3 with. I am so displeased, seems like behringer had my rd-8 for months, to not replace the defective component or just replace the unit. I am NOT happy.

        heyvirgil I don't want to spend the time and expense to ship to you again, I have used this unit successfully a total of 2 hours since purchase, the vast majority of ownership has been spent at service or bricked.

        heyvirgil Also, why can't I modify a request ticket once I have created it? Your support site sucks so bad.

    Hi there,
    So, I've had my RD-8 for a few months, got the hang of the sequencer apart from one bug that I can't seem to fix.. here goes...
     
    I program ptns 5 6 7 8, no problem, I can switch between them playing live with no problem.
     
    I program them into a simple song to play in the following seq... 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 and repeat.
     
    I check the programming by scrolling through each the song to check each should playing twice. All good so far.
     
    When I play the song it starts fine, playing 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8, then the problem starts when it repeats..
     
    So, from the beginning it plays as follows..
    5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 (repeat here)
    8 5 6 6 7 7 8 8
    8 5 6 6 7 7 8 8..
     
    This happens whether playing in INT or MIDI sync modes. The seq shows correctly as I programmed it in Synthtribe software.
     
    I've deleted the song and started from scratch and I get the same issue.
     
    I'm running the latest OS as from yesterday, still the same issue.
     
    Anyone else had similar issue and solved it?
     
    Cheers anyone,
     
    Phil

    I'm trying to update the firmware on my RD-8 Rhythm Designer but the Synthtribe software only updated it to version 2.0.6. I know that 2.1.2 is the latest version. So I made sure I had the latest version of SynthTribe (2.5.2) and tried again but now I'm constantly getting the "Cloud under Maintenance" error. Does anyone know if the servers are out for maintenance or is this a probelm at my end?

    Basically when sending sequences made in Ableton Live to the RD - 8 using both a MIDI or USB cable the mute button doesn't seem to affect the selected voice. Is there some setting that will allow me to do this?

    Whats happening with the RD-9? Where is it?

    The official release date announcement was made months ago. They said "It's Finally Here"

    Release date March/April 2021

    it's May 6th today!

    Ive held £300 for 3 months waiting for an RD-9. Should I give up? Should I buy a quality used Roland TR8?

    No updates. No notifications. No customer respect.

    Come on Behringer/Music Tribe stop F'king with our heads. Be transparent. Honesty works & earns.
