TR-8: Sequencing in Ableton

Equipment Needed:

  • 1 TR-8
  • 1 USB cable
  • 1 Computer with Ableton Live

Prep for Sequencing:

  • Connect the TR-8 to your computer via USB. 
  • Open Ableton Live
  • Configure TR-8 as Audio Input Interface (more info here: http://www.rolandus.com/support/knowledge_base/201920279)
  • NOTE: TR-8 does not need to be clocked to Ableton for this example. 
  • Under Ableton Preferences ->MIDI->Output: TR-8, switch Track to ON. 

Track Setup:

  • Create 1 Audio track and 1 MIDI track
  • Set the input of your MIDI track to a controller of your choice (NOT TR-8)
  • Set the output of your MIDI track to TR-8, Channel 10
  • Set the input of your Audio track to Ext 1/2
  • Set the output of your Audio track to Master

Your track setup should look similar to this:

Sequence!

From here you can manually program your drum beats, or use an external controller of your choice.
