Drum machine with remote pattern changes. Sequencers (HW)

Drum machine with remote pattern changes.

Hi All.

I bought Roland TR8 which is perfect in every way except that I can't change patterns without reaching over and touching the bloody thing. I need something like the TR8 but it has to let me change the pattern with a program change or note on a specific channel or something, remotely. I have a sampler but I don't really want to go that route, I just want to do stuff with the genoQs octopus sequencer, a synth and a drum machine. Any tips, guys?

Thanks.

The new TR-8S can, and it's the closest thing to a TR-8.

If you do not want to buy a new drum machine you could sequence the TR8 using your octopus. Problem solved.

Yes, do a bit of that but I just like working on the drum machine, the TR8 is just nice to use. I seem to remember that quite a bit of stuff like the scatter for instance is a real faff to program from the octopus. Can't quite recall at the moment, but I wasn't convinced at the time.

Just out of interest, how do you know it will do this?

People with units have reported successfully doing so in the main thread.

Someone else on reddit did too.

I have a TR-8S. Yes you can change both kits and patterns remotely using Program Change messages.
