    The first 2500 series synth modules came out in the 70s and tended to be extremely expensive. They were mainly all discrete transistor designs with some op-amps as at the time op-amps were high cost. The discrete circuitry gave the modules a very distinctive sound and were used by artists like The Who, Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Kraftwerk and so many more, giving us some of the greatest records and film soundtracks we’ve ever heard. Modular synths were a landmark development in electronic music and today, it’s about to get better.

    hey,

     

    can i set different midi channels per instrument, like Bass send on Midi CH#1, Snare send Midi Ch#2 etc?

     

    or can the RD-8 send only on one channel?

    Hi,

    2 Months ago i bought a RD8 and it was working out of the box. I could get audio from mono / headphones and individial outs. Since then i did not used the RD8 and put it in the box again for later use.

    Since a few days i am trying to get audio out of main / headphones but there is pure quietness.
    Individual outs are still working, but nothing from main and headphones.

    I updated to the latest version on the website, still no audio from main and headphones.

    Is my unit broke? What are my options?

      This also happened to me and it turned out I was using the power adpater for the Behringer Model D for the RD-8 accidentally. Usually using the wrong power adapter would be obvious as there would be no power but in this case the RD-8 worked but the Main mon and headphone outs did not work.


      There was also a strange noise from the tom outputs.


      Is it possible you have an incorrect adapter too? Hopefully you are able to resolve your issue. Good Luck!

      I have exact the same issue. Did you find a solution anyhow ? Can't find anything yet...

      I also have the exact same problem! Updated firmware and restarted. Checked all levels. Is there some weird preference that I have to switch? The individual outs work.

      You're not the only one Same problem here.


      Anyone find a solution yet?

      I have 2 RD8s One with this problem and one working fine. I've done the same tests and settings on both including factory resets. 

      So with one working I have a "control group" So I know that there is a problem with the unit and not a user error. Or at least I think.

      Hi,


      same here. Got this last week. Updated to new firmware but it keeps happening.


      Any updates on this? Any chance this could be looked into and fixed in a firmware update?


      Ta!

    Hi everyone. I got tired of waiting for the US vendors to get the RD-8 in stock, so I ordered one from musicstore.de. I got my RD-8 this week, and noticed there was no sound from the headphone outs or the main mono output. Figuring that a return to Germany would be annoying at best, I opened it up to see if I could spot any trouble. Sure enough, it looks like there was a hardware fix soldered on to the output board. The solder job was botched pretty badly, and looks like the beads of solder are touching. There is a transistor on the board that also looks like it was burnned. It was burned badly enough that I couldnt see the entire part number on the chip.

    So here is what Im hoping to accomplish. First of all Im not upset and dont feel like this is some sort of injustice. I understand that Behringer was trying to get these things built en masse and for a price point. So from that standpoint its all good. Other than the output board kludge it actually looks to be pretty solidly built and of good quality.  What I am hoping to get is a replacement output board for my RD 8 so that I can get that installed and get this thing working.

    While I would like to do it on a reasonable time scale, Its not exactly an emergency as I own a real TR-808. I am keen to get started with the wave designer and the newer sequencer features though, I would even be willing to just outright buy this output board and not even mess with a warranty. Seriously, I want to be cool about this and just want a working unit. I have otherwise been super happy with the behringer gear, and have a K2 and the 303 ordered.(also will buy the RD9 as soon as available). So MusicTribe, How can I get my RD-8 fixed? working?

    Hello,

    Could I send midi PC messages to RD-8 in order to select Songs, or Patterns  and the start  them ?
    Is there some better midi map the simply the Sysex list in documentation ?

    Best

    Please please please give us the option to change this to OFF by default.

    Every opinion i've read online is asking for this. For more complex patterns I really need only a select few steps set to ON. I am having to spend ten minutes turning every instrument on every step off each time and it is killing my workflow.

    Thanks

      Yeah, thats totally bullsh+t.


      i don´t know how to implement it that way. Instead of just switching on the steps you want to flam or Prob. you have to switch off every step where you want no flam or Prob.
