Graphical Editor/Librarian Software for the TR-8S and TR-6S Rhythm Performers

Representing the apex of the Roland TR line, the TR-8S and TR-6S are the most complete drum machines to date—forward-thinking, performance-tuned instruments unlike any other. The free 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.

Hardware Meets Software

Enhance your TR workflow with a fluid onscreen editor that eliminates the need for menu diving and page scrolling on the hardware. Access a wide range of parameters and controls across five easy-access tabs and organize all your sounds via the breakout librarian window.

TR Sound Designer

TR-EDITOR helps you nimbly design your signature kits and sounds via an intuitive graphical interface. Draw parameter motion data with a quick flourish for instant results, access KIT and INST parameters on a single screen for swift adjustments, and tweak complete FX parameters that are automatically set to your FX selection. Don’t like what you did? TR-EDITOR has you covered with both undo and redo for quick revisions and comparing ideas.

Get Organized

TR-EDITOR’s librarian window assists with organizing and managing patterns and kits. Access the complete TR library at once and quickly filter various instrument categories and sound engine types to customize your sound. You can also rename hardware patches, kits, and projects quickly and easily using your computer keyboard.
