?

Music Tribe is Behringer's parent company, or whatever the proper name of their corporate structure is, but it's them.

I've had my Boog serviced by them, easy as pie.

Submit a support ticket via a link on their site.

You'll get an email response in a few-ish days.

Correspond and answer their questions, etc.

Get an RMA, and off it goes.

All correspondence took about 10days from ticket submission to getting an RMA.

A brand new Boog was back in my hands in ~30dsays and it only cost me one-way domestic postage to their US Service Center in Georgia.

I suspect their are others based on ones location, and other options if it doesn't need repairing.

ok, but it's not that I have a bad unit. I think it has to do with the firmware or software or design or whatever. Just want to point that out to Behringer.

Glad I canceled, now I will be getting the yellow from Sweetwater.....some day.....
Just got the notice from UPS that my yellow beast will be here today. My friend who ordered from Sweetwater has been told mid-May. I'm fine with having to buy my own adapter.

Anyway enjoy your TD-3s. I've just ordered a Pro-1 instead
Bizarre. I'm in the USA and my yellow td-3 from thomann is arriving today.

I previously ordered the Pro-1 from them. You're gonna love it, stellar piece of kit.

I thought this was fixed in a firmware update. Is your TD-3 up to date? I’ve not experienced the problem myself but will try tonight

Edit: I just tested this fully and my patterns save just fine with V1.2.4.

So go there, register, set up a support ticket and inform them

The tickets are instrument related and when I had to talk about something they were on the ball and attentive

No. Only the octave saving has been addressed in that last update. But the other saving issues as shown in the video are still there.

I tested the issue identified on both videos with both of my TD-3s and I don’t have those issues at all. My patterns are saved just fine. I’m not saying there’s no issue present for others though, just not on my units.

303 style midi sequencer / td-3

oh thank you.

it looks very similar to my layout.
I didn't know that and around Christmas I built a little sequencer in 303 style with full control by touch and/or rotary encoder with push .
I hope that TD3 will be able to midi-slides soon.

However, it has a few more features ( two independent sequencer layers with its own channel, rotate, variable Gatetime, Slide with flexible Midi-CC eg. for Roland TB03, step insert, step delete,...).

I also wanted to do the pattern programming via sysEx in realtime by VST. TD3-SysEx-Reengineering was already done...

But beware:
There is a risk that every change in real time is immediately written into the eeprom. (i can't say that for sure)
A sequence is sent as a 124 byte block. every time, every change.
Shifting one note with mouse by two octaves means 24 EEPROM cycles.
If you do this all day and to often, the EEPROM is quickly at the end of its life and gets alzheimer.

This could be the reason why Behringer synthtool is not sending changes immediately. That's why I don't care anymore.
We will know it, if people suddenly says that saving works no longer reliable.

My thinking is, if they're reading these threads and issued the slide update etc after doing so, then they might have also thought to adjust the VCF trimpot on later batches/on the new colours? I dunno, maybe it's silly to think that, but that's probably what I'd have done in their shoes.

I suppose I can find out for myself when my yellow arrives but that'll be my only TD-3, so can't compare it to the older ones/other colours to hear if they're all the same.

TBH I can't say for sure as I modded and handed on my other ones. Initial impression was yes, lower, but can't A/B. Can post a recording later though with a cutoff sweep.

Just a little FYI, Thomann quoted £125 on their website and I was charged in pounds looking at my statement, great as despite ordering something from Germany I didn't have to pay any commission!
Plus the conversion rate when compared to the euro price on the German Thomann page was only 50p out, which given how the exchange rate fluctuates is fine.

Arriving Friday now though, but as no one will be in today that is fine.

Did you order today, or was it a pre-order?

But Thomann haven't got any, no-one's got one from them, nor will they for the foreseeable future.

They told me so. Twice.

So mine just arrived. Been having some fun jamming with it and my Drumbrute.

I decided to give it a comparison myself. I figured that the pattern loopop uses in his comparison video was fairly simple so should be easy to recreate. Turns out he created it in that video so didn't even have to work it out.

Played the same pattern with the same settings through my TD-3 and it's noticeably darker. My yellow TD-3 sounds closer to his TB-303 than his TD-3. His TD-3 still chirps a little during the bark test but mine doesn't at all, just pure bark.

So it looks like Behringer did adjust it on the new models?

Looks like I won't have to open mine up right away after all.

Just received mine. Hooked it up and yes, it is a bit bright. Gonna lower the vcf trim later this evening. No biggie. Think I'm gonna apply the rubber mod too.

I've attached my yellow TD-3 doing the bark test from Loopop's video. Tempo might not be matched perfectly but still sounds darker to me regardless of what I set the tempo to.

You can see his comparison here: https://youtu.be/fcC572m8rHs?t=1109

Edit: I've uploaded 2 direct comparison files with the levels more or less matched.

"YellowVSSilver.wav" plays the pattern on my yellow first, and then plays Loopop's silver TD-3.

"YellowVSTB303.wav" plays the pattern on my yellow, and then on Loopop's TB-303.

So, one could say the yellow one sounds barker. (badumm...)
