  • Pitch on the TD-8

    I'm messing around with the percussion groups in the TD-8. My aim is to use my SPD-6 to trigger midi notes in a 'user percussion set'. I've set the 'slap bass' instrument to 8 of these midi notes, and now want to use the pitch parameter to get different pitched bass notes (say C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C). Hey, who needs a bassist?!

    Heres my question:

    The parameter is -440 to +440 (if I recall correctly) . . . is it safe to assume that each increment is equal to 1Hz? If so - then I can do the math from 440hz, and work out the pitches (C-65hz, D-73hz, E-82hz, F-87hz, G-98hz, A-110hz, B-124hz, C-131hz). . . I guess that this is not the case.

    I wondered if any of you guys had done anything similar?

    Failing that, I wondered whether any of you guys had an especially good ear, or even better, a tuner . . . and could let me know the pitch settings for C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C on the TD8 using the 'slap bass'.

    I know I'm asking a lot - but for someone with a tuner, It's only a 2 minute job!

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheer's H.

    I've just sent you a (lengthy) mail explaining my plan!

    If you get anywhere with the pitches, let me know!

    My next step then is to record some patterns (bass lines) using the SPD & TD8 . . .could be in a little deep here, please feel free to drag me out should you see my head go under!!!

        I assume that Roland went for easy editability. I mean, who would want to trawl through an infinite number of tuning possibilities just to get one sound. The effort is just not worth the end result, no matter how good it may sound.

          Yes, 10 equals 1/2 step. I use the timpani quite a bit, and this is what works for me.

          Also used it for steel drum and other melodic percussion.

          But I thought all the melodic percussion was tuned to a C?
