    Just got my RD-6-BB yesterday and loving it so far. I had an original Roland TR-606 25-years ago and the RD-6 sounds as close as I can remember!

    One thing I haven't worked out how to do yet is have a pattern length of 64 steps, which is clearly stated on the box "64 Step Sequencer", in the details blurb and even mentioned in the official Behringer intro video. I don't see any mention of it in the manual though.

    So, what's the magic button/mode combo for 64-step patterns?

      DavidKnighton Hi Nedreud,
      I regret to inform that the RD-6 is only 16 step. There was a mistake in the packaging design for the first run or so and the product was mislabeled as a 64 step sequencer. Even some retailers advertised based on the product packaging and not the product description from the Behringer website. Please let me know if this is a problem for you.

      • 64 Step Patterns on Behringer RD-6?
        Nedreud Thank you for the confirmation, David. No problem, just checking I wasn't missing something obvious. I'd assumed it would be 16-step like the original TR-606 as the interface is so simple and similar. You might like to know that the "NAMM 2020 - Introducing the Behringer RD-6" video (https://youtu.be/39Wbwt34i3Q) which is on the official Behringer product page for the RD-6 states "...64 step sequencer..." at 1:40. And although not your responsibility, I found a few large online retailers, e.g., Gear4Music, still stating 64 steps in their info.

      • 64 Step Patterns on Behringer RD-6?
        DavidKnighton Hi Nedreud,
        Yes, I actually came to the same conclusion about a year ago. One user even posted a video and commented about it. I believe they wanted to make it 64 step, but in order to stay true to it's form, they pulled out and only designed with 16 step.

      PedroRodrigues Hi DiegoCastanon in this case and considering that in Mexico any assistance is provided by the reseller where the unit was acquired, to proceed with this matter you must contact you reseller. Thank you

    Hello Behringer,

    I'd love to update my RD-8's firmware using Linux Mint 19.1, why do you only offer an updater for Windows and Mac? I'm a paying customer like everybody else, so please make it work with Linux. I tried to update via Wine, but that doesn't work. I can run the program but it doesn't find the RD-8 when it's in boot mode (it's all black then, that's right?). In the manual for the firmware update, updating the usb driver is suggested, but the one suggested clearly makes no sense for Linux. If I interprete the manual correctly, the RD-8 contains a STM-32 microcontroller that handles the firmware - so I guess it could work with Wine if  Linux runs a STM-32 driver (which one)?

    Please help, thanks in advance

      Dear Behringer team,
      I'm waiting for support for Behringer products. Me and a lot of other people! Why does no one answer our support questions? We're paying customers - but no support for us means no money for Behringer in the future. It's that simple.
      Please treat us like people who are interested in your products and your success, because we are.
      Thank you

      MicroCheapFx Same here !
      It would be cool if you provide the blob and tell us how to update.

      I too would like to update Behringer gear via Linux with a native tool/application. But knowing this type of "industry" (non-Linux aware hardware/gear manufacturers), I am not surprised Behringer/musictribe simply ignores the "native Linux firmware update solution". They got our money and that's that. Sadly we are the fools here. Technically it is no problem to develop a cross-platform solution for firmware-updating, which would work on the typical three platforms Windows, Linux and macOS from a single codebase. This is not complex or time-consuming, thus not cost-intensive. But like the people before me in this thread, I am sitting here with a RD-8 (firmware revision 1.3.5) thus bugs and so solution in sight. This sort of attitude of Behringer could have been ok-ish some 15 years ago, but not these days... not 2021.

    I just updated my RD-8 to the latest firmware and liking the improvements... but now I can't get flam on the hi hats (or the closed hats.) It works on snare and cowbell because I tried those but not on hi hats or closed hats.  Why is this? How do I fix this?? Not sure if user error or bug.  please help!!

    Dear Behringer Team,

    on page 11 of the current RD-8 manual it says: "Make sure you store the song with the Auto Scroll on otherwise your song will not playback as programmed."

    But there seems to be a bug in firmware 2.0.6 because the AUTO SCROLL setting is not saved and is always off when loading a song. This makes it necessary to always enter PATTERN MODE to manually turn AUTO SCROLL on before playing a song.

    My RD-8 is updated to the newest firmware and I have already performed a factory reset. Can anybody confirm this bug or am I doing something wrong?

    Also, flam doesn't seem to have an effect on the closed hat.

    Thanks for listening!

    Hello. I am trying to connect my RD-6 to Reason. I have a USB Cable to connect to the laptop or Midi Cables via my Presonus 26c Interface not sure which to use. I am a beginner at all this stuff and not very tech savvy as yet. Could anyone help me through the process of getting my Drum Machine to work in Reaon. Thank You.

      PedroRodrigues Hi michaelraphael please consider that if you're doing this via a USB cable then I would expect Reason to pick up the RD-6 as a MIDI device.
      Click edit, then preferences, then go to the control surfaces tab and then under input devices you should see your RD-6 as an option.
      Make sure 'enabled' is ticked meaning that the external MIDI instrument will be able to see it when it's plugged in.

      If you're using a standard MIDI cable then pick the Presonus as the MIDI device.

      Choose the RD-6/Presonus in the External MIDI instrument (you'll find it in the instruments list in the browser) and if there is MIDI in the sequencer or if you have a sequencing device plugged into the note/gate ports in the back of the external MIDI instrument you should have everything working. I hope the image below also helps

    Hello.

    My RD-8 returned from service last November with an updated firmware (I don't know the version currently installed as the key combo described in the manual won't work) which I assume comes with the option to trigger a voice every time the corresponding voice button is pressed.

    How can I disable it?

    TIA

      PedroRodrigues Hi sam08, please consider that to check the firmware version installed on your unit please follow the process below.
      Generally, you may need to perform a firmware update if you’re running into issues and need to reload the device’s software.
      Please consider that the latest firmware update for this unit Version 2.0.6 released on the 01 Dec 2020 offers the following new features and improvement.

      New features

      1. In STEP mode, hold TAP/HOLD then press RECORD to set pattern auto save on or off.
      2. Pattern length menu displayed in SONG and PATTERN mode.
      3. Push LENGTH, then hold TAP/HOLD and push >> (right double arrow beside LENGTH) to immediately duplicate the contents of the current length, this is very useful when you are working with for example a 3/4 pattern with 12 steps.
      4. When STEP RECORD is enabled, the display shows “auto” or “manu” for 1 second to indicate the save mode. 5. Recall stored pattern by holding TAP/HOLD + STEP button of the pattern you wish to restore. This only works when you are in Pattern mode and set to manu (manual) save mode.
      Improvements

      1. Improved sweep erase function.
      2. Improved note repeat to the MIDI out.
      3. Fixed the behaviour of auto fill. Now replaces the end of the pattern with the amount of steps programmed in the auto fill pattern if less than the current pattern playing.

      To check which firmware version, you’re currently on and compare it to the latest listed on the RD-8 download page.
      Follow these steps to check the firmware version:
      1. Press the Settings button and then press and hold the TAP/HOLD button.
      2. While holding the TAP/HOLD button, press the PREFS (5) step key. The firmware version will scroll across the screen.
      To install Bootloader Driver Please consider that this will only be possible to implement on Windows.
      While the RD-8 is class-compliant on Windows, a unique Bootloader driver first needs to be installed for the device to be recognized by the firmware updater while in Boot mode.
      You will need to install a driver tool that allows the RD-8 to be recognized by your PC while in Boot mode. This procedure is only necessary the first time you perform a firmware update on Windows.
      Follow these steps to install the Bootloader driver. Mac users can skip this section and go straight to Perform a firmware update.
      An important point to consider is that you need to make sure that the RD-8 is in Boot mode before installing the Bootloader drive.
      If it’s powered on normally, the STM32 Bootloader will not appear in the device list.

      https://zadig.akeo.ie/


      https://www.behringer.com/product.html?modelCode=P0DG5#googtrans(en%7Cen)

      After this stage of the process is concluded we can now move to the Firmware update process


      Please follow all the steps and your unit will updated in no time.

      Thank you

      DavidKnighton Hello Michael,
      The error you're encountering is a security permission with Mac OS. Go to SYSTEM PREFERENCES>SECURITY and find the option to 'allow app to make changes'.

        michaelraphael Im still having issues. Only those two options in system preferences. I am trying to use the machine with Reason 8. Do I have to have Synthtribe downloaded to enable this.

        DavidKnighton Hello Michael,
        Check out this help guide from Apple. You're on the right track. I think you just need security unlocked, then try to run the app again and it'll ask you if you want to open it. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202491

    Has anyone else had an issue with the Behringer RD-8 turning on? 

    It worked fine. I powered off. next day, went to power on... and nothing. I know power is reaching it, the "sig" light blips for split second, but nothing after that. no lights, no led, nothing.

    I have only used it twice.First time was to set it up, do the update on firm ware. Second time I just used the trigger button to go through the bass, snare etc. and set the pot knobs. Very disappointed.
