  • What happened with TD 5 7 and 8?

    I saw them awhile back and now they're gone. Were they discontinued?
    Anyone have experience with these?

    Must have been quite awhile back because they've been out of production for several years now.

    EDIT: While out of production, the TD-8 is still a pretty popular module. They come up quite often on eBay averaging about $500 - $550.

        I had a td 7 for 15 yrs. Just sold it and bought a Td 8 and it is awesome.
        Yes they are discontinued. I'm sure over the years they will keep bringing new in and discontinuing the old.

          Does TD8 support:

          1) positional sensing?

          2) 3 zone ride cymbal?

            Positional sensing on snare only. On the 3 zone cymbals with the TD 8 you can hook the 2nd output of the ride into one of the Aux inputs.

                I think it comes down to personal opinion, in a lot of cases.
                I had a TD-8, then 'upgraded' to a TD-12.......It still pisses me off, that while the TD-12 and TD-20 had more adjustable parameters, Roland chose to throw away a really comprehensive sound library, (contained in the TD-8), and replace it with a much more limited one......You can still replicate a lot of the sounds in the TD-8 library, but it's trial-and-error, and time consuming.

                  ^ agree, wish I hadn't parted with the second one I owned. Find a TD-8 and dive head first into MIDI. VEX is also wonderful on the TD-8 if MIDI isn't an option.
