    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

    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

    RD-8 has been off with power unplugged for a couple of weeks and now, when I turned it back on, I have no audio coming out of my desktop via usb. I can select an instrument and tap the "TRIGGER" button and hear an output into the headphones, but still cannot hear anything through the computer.

    I've rebooted my computer and done a factory reset on the RD-8.... Still nothing.....

    I tried the bass drum out to my interface as well as the Mono out and nothing.....

    I do get a notification sound from my computer when I disconect the USB cable and also when I turn the RD-8 on and off.

    Other than that I get nothing?????

     

    Please help!

    Neal

      JoeRivers96 Hi Neal, Are you using the original power supply? Sometimes this affects the audio output if a third party power supply is used. Please also try a factory reset:

      Press the Settings button.
      Hold Tap/Hold and press step key 16. The display will read Wait.
      When the display reads Done, power cycle the RD-8 to complete the procedure.

      graesserph Not exactly sure what you mean with "I have no audio coming out of my desktop via usb". Please take note that the RD-8 does not at all pass any audio through USB. You can send and receive MIDI through USB, but not audio, as the RD-8 is no audio interface...that's what its specification says.
      The the RD-8 has only analog audio outputs, the main mono out jack, the individual mono out jacks, and the headphone out jack. This is it. As far as my understanding goes, the RD-8 will never pass audio through USB.

    As the title suggests, my RD-8 suddenly, while playing on it, turned off and I have not yet been able to power it on again. Only the signal light flashes shortly, but nothing else happens.

    Also tried connecting it over USB, but the RD-8 isn't recognized. 

    I was running OS 2.0.6 as far as I remember.

    Anyone had the same issues/any advice?

    My RD-8, sometimes when pattern play is stopped, it never plays again without power off/power on of the unit.  I will even go to 'steps', and it shows no steps lit for different drum sounds.  They come back after reboot.

    Anyone else come across this issue?  I have the 'latest' update that I am aware is available as of 2021-03-17.  Thanks.

    for context, I am using a mac. I downloaded synthtribe 2.4.7 and tried to update my rd8 per the instructions. my rd8 was plugged into the power and to my mac via USB ( obviously, but I just wanted to add any context I could)

    1. I turned on the device

    2. I turned off the device

    3. I inserted a pin into the hole next to the usb, and as I was holding down the DFU button, I booted the device up. 

    after the third step, the device did not come all the way up, i got a small flash of light from the signal light in the wave designer as i pressed power on, but that was it. Furthermore, synthtribe didn't allow me to finish the update, because the device was no longer detected. Now I cannot turn on the device! 

    Also, synthtribe no longer detects the device as well ( probably because It won't turn on). 

    Has anyone experienced something like this? I tried toggling the dfu switch again during power on/power off, plugging it into different outlets, etc. but nothing is working. Anyone have anything I can try?

      JAMIE2 hi - i am windows (well not windows hahaa) , dfu mode is no longer required, has been this way for a long time - it is used to access boot mode. try this: get rd8 FW 1.35- then put rd8 into dfu mode by holding the pin in and powering up rd8. then access the 1.35 booter software and this will then open the rd8 - then once it is operational you update to new FW. this worked for other users. never use dfu again as not required in V2 fw

      dafraludom I have the same issue with a dead RD-8 and a flicker of LED’s on powerup and FW 1.3.5 app in dfu mode did not work either. The same setup of Mac/Synthribe app/usb cable recognises my MS-1.

    Hi, i've just purchased a Behringer RD8, connected it via USB to DAW Ableton and clock sync works great. (DAW is master clock)

    My question is, i have USB master clock coming from my DAW into my RD8 and i would like to connect another synth from the MIDI OUT 5 pins port of the RD8 to the MIDI IN 5 pins port of this synth, is it possible? How do i do that? I have tried it, but doesn't work (the DAW sends clock to the RD8 via USB and works fine, but the RD8 doesn't send clock via MIDI to the other synth).

    What can i do?

     

    Thank you!

    Hi guys, it is possible to change pattern via midi in RD8?

    • RobertoF
      PedroRodrigues Hi RobertoF, please consider that is not possible as the RD-8 cant respond to CC or PC the only process to change pattern is by press the Length button and use the arrows to select the pattern range.
      Use the step buttons to set the length of the pattern.
      Please visit the link below to access a set guide for your RD-8 that will help you with this unit: https://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/articles/behringer-rd-8-setup-guide/
      Thank you

      Where is the problem to implement something like that? this is a maximum of one one-liner in the code, which does nothing but this button !!! I can only shake my head about such statements.

      And by the way, something was mentioned directly by you in the manual:

      „The RD-8 can be controlled by a DAW if required. Songs and patterns
      exchanged, or individual sounds triggered by the DAW sequencer.“

      And now I ask you explicitly: How does it work? What did you promise?

      The same issue applies to the RD-9.
