    Hi there,

    I noted that the sequencer of the RD-6 is sending out midi notes for each instrument, except for the claps (should be note 39)

    Will there be a firmware update to solve this?

    Best regards

    Jens

      JoeRivers96 Hi Jens, i'll look into this further for you. Have you monitored the output through a monitoring software or is this in a DAW?

      inductor Hi Joe,
      both: its in my DAW (Logic) but I tracked this also with the "midi monitor" tool on my MacBook Pro: The RD-6 sequencer sends for all instruments (except the claps) midi messages properly. No matter which switch position Clap/Cymbal is used on the RD-6. This is also reported on the gear slutz forum and the amazona.de website. Hopefully this can be fixed by a firmware update.
      Best regards

    Hi guys, 

    I would love to have some simple midi cc's implemented. My suggestions would be midi cc control of:

    - decay of the open hat, bass drum, cymbal etc

    - full range of velocity control

    - tuning 

     

    Just some ideas :) Was wondering if it would be posssible to implement in upcoming firmwares?

    Hi all, is it me (did I miss a setting??) or has autofill behavior changed in firmware 2.0.2?

    In 1.3.5 a fill would play instead of the last bar of a pattern just like to original 808 did. After upgrading to 2.0.2 fills play after the original pattern. Can anyone confirm?

      graesserph I've noticed the same. This new behavior in 2.0.2 makes the the autofill pretty much unusable with patterns that are longer than one bar.

      • rd-8 autofill behavior change since 2.0.2
        FrankdeGroodt Exactly. I’ve tried going back to 1.3.5 but didn’t help, assuming it was actually possible to revert successfully.

    Dear Behringer Team,

    I have found a bug relating to pattern chaining and pattern groups. I show it in my video review of the RD-6 in the "Bugs" section: 

    https://youtu.be/mh1oDk6UN_w

    The bug always happens after the RD-6 has booted, but after that it sometimes works as it should. Haven't quite figured out when. It has since also happened with single patterns (not only pattern chains), so maybe it is just related to pattern groups, not chains in particular.

    Thanks for listening!

    So... I downloaded the latest synth tool for mac, and attempted to update from firmware 1.3.5 to the latest 2.0.2. Opened synth tool, it recognized my directly USB connected RD-8 on my mac pro 5,1 (OS 10.13.4)- firmware update page opened, instructions said to put RD-8 into DFU mode, so I power cycled the unit whilst pressing in the pin in the holde next to the USB port. the synth tool lost connection and the unit never displayed the wait text on it's screen. Now it only flashs the sugnal LED briefly when power ycled. The thing is bricked. Is there anything to do to recover this thing?

    My RD-8 is on the latest firmware 2.0.2.

    During my first test, I ran into one rather minor bug.

    Applying "flam" works on all instruments with exception of closed hh.
    When applying flams on closed hh, it simply does not have any effect.

    Yes, firmware version is 2.0.2.
    Yes, I did a factory reset already.

    Apart from that, very solid firmware release.
    The sync is super-stable now, and also switching between patterns with different timings (e.g. 1/16 and 1/8T) behaves exactly as expected and without hickups.

    Big ups for the page copy feature (was the most missing one for me).
    Also un-mute/un-solo all as well as autosaving steps in record mode are fantastic improvements.

    Thanks a lot and keep up the good work.

      jemabaris For me live recording with note repeats on does not work. Can you confirm this? Or does it work for you? I really wanted this feature bad and now it does not work. I might try a factory reset but I don't wanna lose my patterns or go through the process of backing them up. So maybe you can confirm that it generally works first? :)

      • RD-8 : Good work on firmware 2.0.2, but flam does no longer work on closed HH
        graesserph It actually does work. Unfortunately it's not that obvious how to use it, and the docs do not explain it.

        1. Record or program some steps without note repeat enabled. Just a normal sequence.
        2. Then enable note repeat, let the sequencer run while record is active, and then play with the trigger button. This records the repeats to the already existing enabled steps. It does not enable steps that have not been enabled before.

        To be honest, I'm unsure if this is the supposed behavior. Could also be a bug.
        I'd also have expected to record directly from scratch, without having to enable any steps first.

        Maybe someone from Behringer can answer this.

        jemabaris Does not work for me I guess it's just buggy and not yet functioning correctly. The only useful way to use this feature would be to just live record note repeats anyway. Without programming steps first.
        • October 28, 2020
      • RD-8 : Good work on firmware 2.0.2, but flam does no longer work on closed HH
        jemabaris Ok, weird. I just figured out that it actually (kinda) works the way you described it, but only for a note repeat of 2 and higher. 1 just won't work under any circumstances. I hope this get's a fix soon and works intuitively by just recording it in. That would be really great to quickly get nice syncopic patterns. I hope Behringer sees this soon
        • October 28, 2020
      • RD-8 : Good work on firmware 2.0.2, but flam does no longer work on closed HH
        graesserph It does work
        Keep the following in mind:
        1. Recording Note repeats affects only already existing notes = activated steps.
        2. An activated step triggers the sound 1x, which is the default and the same as 1x Note Repeat.
        When you now record 1x Note Repeats on existing notes that trigger the sound already 1x, then it's not surprising that you do not hear a difference. When you record at 2x, 4x, or 8x, the you'll hear the difference of course. And when you once have recorded e.g. at 4x, then you can record 1x over it, which will reset the repeats to 1x.
        After all, even if it's not what I call intuitive, I'm pretty sure that's how the developers want it to work.

        One thing Behringer:
        Please, can you tell me where do you host this website? I don't expect high speed, but this site is unbelievable slow when called from Europe. Showing it up takes up to 1 minute, then showing the login screen another minute, then login,... another minute, and so on...

    Hi Behringer Team

    we looked everywhere at the internet and found nothing how to send Sys.Ex dumps from the Behringer RD 8 to the external hard disk and from the external hard disk to the Behringer RD-8.

    We have tried to make a meaningful film, which you can show to your customers:

    I haven't seen anyone else post about this problem anywhere, but the machine's tempo is always faster than what I have it set at. I just got the machine the other day and was very excited with how intuitive the interface is, but the tempo issue has made it impossible to record with. I have had the midi-synch issue everyone posts about as well, including in USB. The tempo issue occurs even when I am just wearing headphones and playing the machine by itself. Just updated the firmware and that did nothing to help. I really don't want to have to exchange this for a different drum machine. Any advice or help will be welcome.

    Hi Behringer,

    I’m very pleased with my RD-6-LM but would like to suggest an improvement:

    When selecting Pattern Write and clicking one of the 16 Step-buttons, it switches to the corresponding pattern when the beat isn’t playing. Wouldn’t it have been more logical if you could layout a beat using the Step-buttons, thus withóút pressing Play? This way you can program the beat based on the one playing in your head (presuming I’m not the only one hearing beats in my head; I prefer it wáy better than the voices I heard before). Selecting patterns should than only be possible within Pattern Pláy mode, not within Pattern Write.

    Also, it would be nice if – within Pattern Write mode and when the beat isn’t playing – the Tab button would trigger the selected instrument, so you could tab an instrument before programming it.

    Would this be an option via a firmware update or the Behringer software?

    Thanks!

        Rob, from the Netherlands

     

    PS The BD combines awesomely well with the CH when distortion is on.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your hard work.

    On the TR-606, when in "Write Pattern" mode, it is possible to erase the notes of the selected instrument by holding down the "Clear" button while the sequencer is playing.

    This feature is very useful to modify in real time the composed patterns.

    Is this behavior expected on the RD-6?

    Thank you,

        Bortch Hello Nic,

        Thank you for your response.

        Is it to be understood that this is planned in a future version or should it already work? In the latter case, there must be a bug, because it doesn't work at the moment.

        If possible could you open a Technical support ticket and provide a short video of exactlyhow you have the RD6 setup and how it is behaving.
