  • Question about Roland Td-8 [snare tone]

    When I play my drums (Roland Td-8) I notice a change in tone on the snare drum. It will sound normal then go to a brighter sound then back to normal again. Has anyone ever have this problem? Will an update fix this problem? I have version 1.03
    Roland TD-8 Mod, DIY burgandy Mapex drums 12" snare, 8" 10" and 12" rack toms, 14" rack floor tom, 22" Bass drum , 3 cy-15r cymbals, one for the ride 2 for the crashes and cy-14c for hi hat.

    The TD-8 does have positional sensing with most snare head sounds; perhaps it's that you're hearing? If you don't like the effect you could switch it off with SETUP, MIDI (F2), GLOBAL (F1), PAGE 2 (F2), ZONE CC OFF which would also be a way to find out if that is the cause of the tone change.
