Device Overview

Name/Version: TR-8S Aerobik Performer 1.2
Author: darrien  
Description: Device providing controls for tune, decay, ctrl and level of all drum voices as well as for accent, reverb, delay and master fx.

So this enables you to control your TR8S from Ableton using the Аеробик Performer. If you map the controls on your TR-8S to those of the Аеробик Performer, you'll be able to record all parameter changes performed on the TR-8S straight into automations in Ableton.

I always wanted to build pattern in Ableton, but "perform" them on the machine and record not the audio, but param changes of the performance for later fine tuning.

All available plugins I found left me failing with lots of drop outs Roland doesn't seem to care about integrating their recent hardware with the DAW world either. There's the cloud they have to push, I guess.

Therefore, I spent some hours learning max4live and creating the damn thing I need myself. I hope it will be useful for other TR-8S enthusiasts as well.

thanks so much for making this. Ableton has been driving me mad trying to record Automation in arrangement view is far too painful and now this device has made it a Breeze.

I quickly mapped all the tr8s knobs to your device and it works like a charm. Your efforts are really very much appreciated.
