    Please please please give us the option to change this to OFF by default.

    Every opinion i've read online is asking for this. For more complex patterns I really need only a select few steps set to ON. I am having to spend ten minutes turning every instrument on every step off each time and it is killing my workflow.

      Yeah, thats totally bullsh+t.

      i don´t know how to implement it that way. Instead of just switching on the steps you want to flam or Prob. you have to switch off every step where you want no flam or Prob.

      same here. Got this last week. Updated to new firmware but it keeps happening.

      Any updates on this? Any chance this could be looked into and fixed in a firmware update?

      it could be at any time, can we fix this? because it is imposible to work with this issue.

      michaelgorbache This is a ridiculous issue and makes me want to sell the unit because the intended purpose is unusable especially when you are using USB to clock sync the unit... I have been asking about this issue also since May, I am not sure if they are faulty units or all are defected. I am trying to get the unit replaced, but Behringer so far has been unresponsive to this serious issue.

    Hello guys,

    I put some work into a RD-78 concept design that took me some days. I never owned the original one so there could be some flaws. I hope yall like it and it will reach Behringer.

    I'm also down for some feedback!



    PS: Behringer, if you want this as PDF and/or the 3D model, hit me up!  @UliBehringer 


    EDIT: Just realized I missed some instrument volume knobs... Theres some space left in the middle area. Maybe you could add some more there.

    Hi Everyone,

    We would like to send the snare of the RD-8 to a Reverb pedal and give that sound more space. How can I do this using the send and return on the back of the drum machine?

    Thanks in Advance!

    I'm trying to use the rd-8 as master and send midi clock to an external synth sequencer.  It sends clock but also sends midi note data from the given pattern, triggering unwanted notes in the external synth. Is there away to shut off sending midi notes? I only want to send clock from the midi out

      Found a solution by setting the rd-8 midi out to different channel than the synth's midi input. It appears midi clock is still transmitted globally from rd-8 out.

    Is there a way to hear the effect of the Wave Designer without unplugging individual outs? My RD-8 is plugged into a mixer via multiple TRS cables and I noticed I can only hear Wave Designed voices if I unplug the voice I am wave designing and listen via main output. Soling the voice doesnt work. Any other ideas?

      I believe the wave designer and filter are only present on the main out bus. Using the individual out removes that instrument from the main bus. So no, you can't hear the effect of the wave designer on an instrument routed through the individual out.

    After latest firmware upgrade, you must stop sequencer to change songs. Undocmented. Nightmare if you don't know about it.

      Yes that totally stupid, we need this feature!  For live set use is really important.

    My RD-8 was workign fine and now all of a sudden the output and headphone outputs don't work. Individual outs work fine. I have had this unit about a month. It has not been moved and only played twice. Very disappointed.

    Hello everyone,

    about 2 months ago I bought the Behringer XD80USB drumset. For the first 2-3 weeks everything was completly fine and worked perfectly. But the I found out that the 'drumhead' of the snare pad going deeper to the pad and that caused that my sticks dont bounce of it that good, the response got worse and and when I hit it like really soft it makes the sound of a rimshot (I hit it in the middle not on the edge). At first I said to myself: "Well I'm not a jazz player so I don't mind if i can't do some light hits...". Another month passed, I turned on the kit, started playing and the snare drumhead was even more deeper and it was making that rimshot sound wherever I hit it.
    Obviously I'm pretty upset about it, because I have this drumset for like 2 months like I said and really don't know what to do.
    Thank you for any kind of help.
    Have a great one out there folks!

      Get used to it. Behringer is garbage. I regret my purchase daily.
