    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:

    Buy RD-8

    Install synthtribe (windows)

    follow update instuctions (including zadig loader)

    run RD-8 firmware updater (success)

    re-run synthtribe

    Synthribe drops back to update page and will do nothing else. Only button that works is the one that closes the app.

      PedroRodrigues Hi John Langford, in this case I would suggest performing a Firmware update on your unit that will help you on this matter.
      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.
      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.
      With the RD-8 turned off, connect it to your computer.
      Go to the Zadig driver installer page, and download the latest version.
      Press and hold the recessed Boot button located next to the USB port on the RD-8 using a paper clip (or something of a similar size) and power the unit on.
      The RD-8 does not light up while in Boot mode.
      Launch the Zadig software, click Options, and select List All Devices.
      In the dropdown box, select STM32 BOOTLOADER and click Replace Driver. The driver installation process may take a minute or two, so make sure not to disconnect the device or power it off.
      Once you’ve confirmed that your RD-8 requires updating, you can begin the update process. You’ll need to connect your device to the computer, download the firmware file on the RD-8 download page, and then perform the update.
      Disconnect all MIDI cables before performing a firmware update. Having MIDI cables connected, specifically to the MIDI IN port, may cause the update to fail.
      Go to the RD-8 download page and download the Firmware Updater for your OS.
      With it powered OFF, connect the RD-8 to your computer and then launch the updater.
      Press and hold the recessed Boot button located next to the USB port on the RD-8 using a paper clip (or something of a similar size) and power the unit on.
      The RD-8 does not light up while in Boot mode.
      Click the Update button within the Firmware Updater software.
      Once the update is complete, power cycle the unit.

    Yo

    I downloaded the latest synth tool for mac, and attempted to update from firmware 1.3.6 to the latest. Opened synth tool, it recognized my directly USB connected RD-8 on my Mini mac..

    instructions said to put RD-8 into DFU mode, powered the unit whilst pressing in the pin in the holde next to the USB port. Synth tool lost connection and the Rd-8 never displayed the wait text on it's screen. Now it only flashes the LED on the SIG lamp briefly when I try to power on the RD-8...

    I think the RD-8 is broken.. Is there a way to fix this ? I already tried to work something out with Thomann where I ordered the Rd 8, but they said I had to try through this way. I still have waranty on this device, but I don't want to ship and wait for al that kind off hustle..

    Hope somebody can hhelp me on this matter..

      NicJonesMT Hi Jan Machiels.
      I'm Nic from the UK Support team.
      Could you please click support at the top of the page and open a new Tech support ticket and please provide the following information;

      • How do you have the device connected to your computer? We always recommend connecting directly to your computer rather than an external hub, and also recommend removing any non essential USB devices.
      • Have you connected the device to an alternative USB port?
      • Do you have access to an alternative USB cable that the device can be tested with?
      • Do you have access to an alternative computer that the device can be tested with?
      • Are you connected to USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports? Please use USB 2.0 ports where possible, there is no advantage to using a USB 2.0 device in a USB 3.0 port and USB 3.0 ports can vary quite a lot, which gives differing levels of performance and stability.
      • Can you please detail any other devices that are being used in conjunction?
      • What is your precise Mac OS (I Need the version number if possible)?
      • Can you please check in the Mac System report for how the device is being recognised?
      • Do you have any other software open at the same time? If so please close it.
      • Do you have a similar device that you can compare the behaviours of?
      • Can you please provide me with a detailed description of how the device is behaving and any other trouble shooting steps that you have undertaken?
      • Is the Issue Intermittent or constant? If it is intermittent is there a specific setting that needs to be used to cause the issue?
      • Jan 6
    • jeanLegland
      mrevolver I'm having the same issue. If the RD-8 loses connection when FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS, then please CHANGE THE DIRECTIONS. This is unacceptable. What is the fix? I now have a dead RD-8. Thanks Behringer!
      • Jan 10
      • Behringer Rd-8 unit no longer starts up after latest firwire update..
        NicJonesMT Hi Mrevolver.
        As above, I will need you to open a technical support ticket with the above information and we can then proceed.

    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?

    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

    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.

    Hi, after haven't used my td-8 for a while I wanted to use it again. I don't get any output from the main output. I do get output from the seperate outputs. Any idea how to fix this. last time I used it everything was working fine.

      DavidKnighton Hello T Gennip,
      The only output besides the MAIN on the rear would be the PHONES output on the top. The volume should affect both output types. If the rear MAIN output isn't working, you could have a damaged connector. Try wiggling the cable while connected to see if it makes even a small bit of contact. That could give you the answer. Beyond that, I would suggest opening a SUPPORT ticket for SERVICE REQUEST at the top of this page.

    Hello everyone! We made a review of the RD-8 using the newest firmware. We give a complete tour of the machine while showing lots of useful features along the way. In case the Behringer staff is listening: There's a section on bugs and some suggestions on how to improve placing rolls/substeps in there ...and we sure would like to review the RD-9 ;)

    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
      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
