Looks pretty good to me

I hope they update the firmware to include hit probability at some point rather than farm that off on some future iteration of the hardware.

Edit: Just remembered my TR-8S doesn't connect over USB (shows as a driver error on my Win10Prox64 PC even though it's supposed to be class compliant) and this editor won't work over just MIDI. Rats.
Was going to upgrade to Win11 eventually, maybe I will in the hope it fixes this bs. Chances are it'll just break a load of other shit on my PC that's just about working instead. :)

Try deleting your driver (inc registry) and reinstall? IOBIT Driver booster (free version) had a good tool for deleting all unplugged USB device drivers (I use it quite often, deletes all the things that auto installed drivers that you long forgot about!!) it it has fixed my broken Korg drivers before...

I’ll give it a go, ta. Yeah, the Korg Minilogue XD driver was a faff, having to set it up in the first 10 devices etc.

Unfortunately none of that worked, but I'm eventually going to be moving to hosting most of my instruments on a Mac so hopefully I'll then not only be able to use the editor, but have a reliable multi interface coreaudio driver so will be able to free up 8 audio ports and access the TR-8S audio over USB.
Was hoping the Mac Mini with a M1 Pro was going to be released sooner, but happy to keep my cash and play the waiting game.
