    We're excited to announce that the new RD-8 firmware 2.0, the release note and the updated manual are now available for download at behringer.com.
     
    We like to take the opportunity to thank our Beta testers and our Innovation Tribers who worked hard to make this a great experience.
    Kudos to our Beta Testers:
    Jamie Munro, Ben Bridges, Barry Whyte, Addison Kane, Alex Wilkerson, Chris Warner, Fabian Potter, Jack Herlihy, Jean-Brice Baudot, Mark Camp, Micahaek K, Michael Romanov, Mike Bridge, Nik Quisquater, Nils Hammer, Peter Lerman, Pia Wasmuth, Rui Antunes, Terence Marsden, Tuomas Elsilä, Dylan Gadwa, Justin Carr.
    As you can see below, we have added lots of new features, while also fixing the MIDI sync issues. However this is just the beginning as we already have a new feature list, which we have started to implement. If you have any requests, we're of course happy to listen to you:-)
    Thank you for all your patience and support! You guys are the reason why we do what we do!
    New features:
    • Synthtool support. (right click on a step cell in the sequencer page for more step options).
    • Pattern length, step on/off will be saved automatically when programmed in RECORD mode.
    • Trigger/play sound by pressing corresponding voice button. With TAP/HOLD button held the voice will be triggered with accent on.
    • Note repeat real time recording (press TRIGGER with note repeat enabled when in STEP recording). Removing step will remove note repeat.
    • In PATTERN mode, copy currently selected pattern to other locations by holding COPY then pressing the STEP button of the destination you want.
    • In STEP MODE, copy page 1 (1-16), page 2 (17-32), page 3 (33-48) or page 4 (49-64) to other pages: 1) Press LENGTH to enter pattern length setting. 2) select a page using arrows and press COPY, 3) select another page then press SAVE. This is will be automatically saved to the pattern.
    • TRIGGER ASSIGN setting (press SETTINGS, holding TAP/HOLD then press STEP 7 to enter the settings menu, press TAP/HOLD to switch between trigger assign 1 and 2). Select any voice as trigger (solid Light when selected). Accent is tied to trigger 3
    • PROB and FLAM set to off as default, set tempo, swing and step size PREFS to pattern as default.
    • Screen dim level adjust (holding TAP/HOLD then turn DATA knob).
    • Hold TAP/HOLD and press MUTE or SOLO to clear all mutes or solos.
    How to update with the Synthtool:
    1. Connect the RD-8 to a computer via USB.
    2. Open the Synthtool app.
    3. Press the Get Started button.
    4. The Synthtool will jump to the firmware upgrading page automatically.
    5. Follow the instructions in the synth tool. NOTE: DFU mode is when you power on the unit and with a small pin type object pressed in the small boot button found next to the USB port on the rear of the RD-8.
    To check the firmware version:
    1. Press SETTINGS.
    2. Hold down the TAP/HOLD button while pressing step key 5. The display will show the current version.
     
    Here is a useful video how to upgrade your firmware:

      jemabaris Live recording Notes with Note Repeat on does not work for me :( Shame, that's the thing I've been looking forward to the most. Anyone here having more luck with it?
      • October 26, 2020
      • RD-8 Firmware 2.0 now live.
        jemabaris Update: I just tried it again with different step divisions and different voices. After mashing the buttons for a bit suddenly the repeats had been recorded. I could not repeat that though. So there seems to definitely be some kind of problem.

    Hello,

    I'm about to receiving my Behringer ARP 2600, yay! (ordered in October last year, Germany lags a bit behind in delivering this cool monster)

    I want to use this device for experimenting with patches, guess this is what it's made for...

    I also plan to try some random or 'uneducated' patches, so my question is: Can some internal circuits or elements be harmed when doing stuff that wouldn't necessarily follow common sense? Or would then just happen nothing, i.e. no output at all?

    Just want to be aware whether certain limitations need to be obeyed when starting to experimenting with patches...

      WilliamR Hello Muederkrieger, William from musictribe here. You don't have to worry about damaging your 2600 when you are experimenting on the face of the unit itself. Only if you go crazy patching stuff could you even get close to "breaking" it and even then that would only be if you were patching other stuff into it that was a different voltage. As long as you don't mess with the internal circuit board, you can't damage the unit trying to create patches and tones. , if you discover a cool sound, take a photo before you forget it. The worse thing that can happen is you might dial in silence.

      JoeRivers96 Hi Tim, providing you have tested with other headphones and you are getting audio from your main outputs, there may be an issue with your synth here. Please choose SUPPORT at the top of this page to submit a case to us.

    Now have been a while since we have seen the product on YouTube, they showed the synth and how it works and so on, but yet the synth is not in the shop or available for purchase... What`s wrong? Maybe is not going to be released? Or is there a date for the release with the price?

    That would be great to know :)

    Does anyone have one of these? I can find no reference in specs about storing created voices.?

    • Guyser
      RonaldFigura Because it can't. I imagine you can store sequences but the Crave doesn't have patch memory.
      • September 16, 2020
    • Guyser
      DavidKnighton Hello Guyser,
      as Ronald suggests, the Crave synth is not digital, except for the sequencer. The rest of the synth is fully analog, as is the majority of synths Behringer is releasing.

    Just wanted to say THANKS BEHRINGER for sorting out the envelopes on the Pro-1, it now sounds VERY close to the original Sequential Circuits version, you can hear it hear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAAvkS3VNac&t=3s

      NicJonesMT Hi Mr Lawrence. I will pass your comments along to the Dev teams.

        Nipty303 Hi Nic, I am right now trying to find a contact where I can ask if there is a chance for me to work for Behringer testing out new gear. Are you able to please provide contact details of who I can speak to? It's a bit long winded but have a look at the information below, it shows what I can do (quite a few commented about now buying the Pro-1 after watching my video, that new firmware update. The very long story short is that I have been producing and engineering electronic music since the mid 80's and use analogue synthesizers exclusively.
        I used to work for Roland UK (ten years) as Product Demonstrator and programmed a lot of sounds into their machines, even being credited in some of their product manuals. I also worked for Moog demonstrating the Minimoog and other products when they re-released them going back early 2000 until around 2004, I also had a lot of input on some of their future products too.
        I only left these companies because the work dried up, the market slowed right down for a while.
        I love the fact you are building the ARP 2600 with Behringer and that's what I am looking to do, become a beta tester/demonstrator for this product as well as any other analogue classics they release, this is perfect for what I do and my experience would help a lot.
        Below is a video I made showing what the updated firmware does for the Pro-1, very popular right now. My YouTube channel is growing and I plan to improve the look and content each time, you can see it against my early uploads. I did complain about the older firmware and the CAT too, as people want to see what can do to improve products, and then sales will grow. My video proves this very clearly and in the comments many are saying thanks to the video they will order from Behringer.
        My actual studio is not yet shown in these, just a spare room, but will soon feature for a professional look. I own a LOT of rare analogue and classic machines and use them to remix for artists who are currently well known names and some of the big 80's groups, and release my own music, some of which have charted. I am desperately trying to get in with Behringer but contacts are so difficult to find I thought you may be able to point me in the right direction as you are obviously deeply involved.
        It's a long-winded message but I need to show Behringer I'm very experienced and not just a fan looking to work just for fun but to take it seriously and potentially boost sales (Roland sold only a handful of JP-8000's until I made a trance and dance bank, within days of release they were flying out of the doors). Feel welcome to contact me here: [email protected] or call 07475 794 033 for a chat.
        Here's my recent Pro-1 demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAAvkS3VNac&t=3s
        Thank you.
        Kind regards,
        Mark.

        NicJonesMT Hi Mark. Cheers for posting the above.
        First thing (and this is fully up to you) I would recommend editing your post to remove your email and phone number.

        Secondly, we do not have a direct contact for hiring, but all available jobs are posted on Indeed.com, so keep an eye on there for any updates.
        There is a careers section currently also in development on this site, but I am unsure when that will be incorporated.

        All the best!

    Hi,

    I've made a patch where the OSC2 level is controlled by the note number in the mod matrix, so that the level increases the further down the keyboard you play. This works fine for single notes, but if I play a sustained high note and then hit a low note, the OSC2 level increases for the high note as well. Is this a bug or a feature? It seems like a bug to me. Can anyone else confirm this?

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create a default program
    2. Assign Note num to OSC2 Lvl in the Mod matrix, set Depth to -128 (repeat this step for a more pronounced effect.)
    3. Play a high note, like C6, and sustain it.
    4. Briefly hit a low note, like C3, and listen for the OSC2 on the high note.

    I've attached an audio example

    Hello,

    i am going bananas  not being able to disable the sequencer from auto syncing with any given source (ableton/TR707/etc), i also own a Crave and in the crave software there is an option called exactly that sequencer auto sync which gives two options activated and deactivated and this prevents the sequencer from playing as soon as i press play in the daw or my drum machine, but i do not see anything that allows me to deactivate the sequencer autosync, is there a different way to do this on this Synth or is this feature going to be added to the software hopefully soon?

     

    I added a pic that shows the crave menu and the option i mention above.

     

    Thank you

      JoeRivers96 Hi Meborrh, could you try installing the latest version of SynthTribe? I don't currently have access to a Poly D to check if this option is available, however I will forward this on as a suggestion to implement.
