Roland releases free TR-Editor Software


Roland has announced the release of TR-Editor, a free Mac/Windows software application for the TR-8S and TR-6S Rhythm Performer instruments. Representing the apex of the Roland TR line, the TR-8S and TR-6S are their most complete drum machines to date. TR-Editor significantly enhances the workflow of these hands-on machines, providing an easy-to-use graphical interface with expanded visual controls and organizational tools that further amplify the TR's creative possibilities.

TR-Editor's large display and five tabs eliminate the need for menu diving and page scrolling on the hardware while designing kits and sounds. It's possible to access kit and instrument parameters on a single screen, draw motion data for instant results, and view all parameters for selected FX at one time. Undo and redo are also available for quick revisions and comparing ideas.

The breakout librarian window in TR-Editor assists with organizing and managing patterns and kits. Users can access the complete TR library and filter various instrument categories to customize sounds. And via the computer keyboard, it's quick and easy to name and rename hardware patches, kits, and projects.


Availability & Pricing

TR-Editor is available for free through Roland Cloud Manager, the software interface for Roland Cloud content.

I'm glad they finally released this, however, either because it's in the cloud or it's just buggy, it does not work like it does in the videos. I have to click the same thing 10 times to get it to open, and then you can't audition anything, it Has to be sent to their TR8S. Some of the options never open no matter how many times you click on them. It's just not usable yet, I hope they fix it soon.
