Someone posted a all blank/808 template backup file for all patterns and kits.

I’d like to have something like that, but with my own template. Is there any way to do this easily, maybe by using a pc, or do you have to do this manually one by one?

Its just a hassle to start a new project with a blank pattern with your favorite template kit which are both (pattern+kit) saved to a different location than the original locations, etc. Would be much easier if a kit is saved per pattern, without the possibility to link a pattern to a different kit. So when you load a different kit into a pattern, it should “clone” the kit into the pattern instead of linking to it imo...

As far I understood your question I think the best way to do it is creating your "template" pattern, with a 808 kit, copy it to all the banks in a pattern and them, copy the original pattern to all the other patterns. The problem is you will have to save all patterns individually, but nothing too much time consuming.

I used to want the kit and pattern saved 1:1, but I found out a good reason why it's not that way. You can develop one really good kit, your "signature sound", then use it across multiple patterns. In a live setting, this is pretty awesome because you can switch between multiple patterns with no breaks, and using the same kit is really helpful for a seamless transition.

I finally got a decent mixer with lots of inputs and was thinking of using the individual outs of the TR to full advantage. However, I'm really new at this and don't know what I'm doing. Can anyone give me some tips and advice about the best drums to split out and what to do with them, in terms of EQ and effects?

Thanks!

Experimentation is key here, there’s no way wrong to do it.

Yep, specially for external FX and eq. For volume the form factor and faders of the Tr8 are perfect

I think I made a big mistake and I'm hoping there's a way to recover from it... I was working on a pattern and tweaked some parts of the kit, then I hit shift+write and saved everything. Later on, I noticed that the kit wasn't the copy that I thought it was, but was kit 001, the TR-808 default. I like to leave the pre-loaded kits pristine and work with copies.

Does anyone know if I can restore just this one kit without wiping out all the other kit changes and copies that I've made? I know there's a factory reset for kits only, but I want just this one kit reset.

I'm prepared for the worst but hoping for the best!

You can just do it from scratch in less than a minute. The very first sample in each category is the 808 one, in bd, snare etc. Just select then, and use shift to quickly change sample category!

I think you can import a kit. I will try to export it and send it.

I was just thinking of doing this. Wonderig if it would be possible to use 2 of these cords connected on 1 powerbank to power both my TR-8S and Mc-707...
