First experiment with the RD-8. It's so much easier to build a good beat and mess about with it live.

Thanks, the RD-8 is great fun to play with. You know you've earned one 😂

The baseline could be better but it was just a pattern I had sitting around. Once I've got some new cables I'll hook both the TD-3s up through the new effects pedals I also got and try to do something proper.

@colinwalker You make a compelling argument for me buying one. :) But I've decided that I need to start using the gear I have before getting more, so I've just started watching tutorials for the TR-505 to finally learn how to use it. Post some more audio when you got the things hooked up. Would be nice to hear!

Good luck, I've not heard the best of things about the 505 but hope you can make good use of it.

@colinwalker Neither have I. It doesn't seem to have nearly as good a reputation as the other Roland machines. I don't really know why though. Yes, it's hard to use and the sounds are limited in their appeal, but the same could be said for many other TR and TD products.

Still, it's what you do with it that matters.
