Free Roland TR-Editor Software

Roland’s TR-Editor software is now available for the TR-8S and TR-6S Rhythm Performer drum machines. If you own either drum machine then don’t miss out on this essential software.

What is the Roland TR-Editor?

TR-Editor is a Mac/Windows application for use with the TR-8S and TR-6S Rhythm Performers.

The TR-Editor runs on your desktop or laptop computer to give you a virtual TR-8S/6S interface with which you can design kits and sounds, eliminating the menu diving and page scrolling of the hardware units.

Via the TR-Editor interface users can access all the core kit and instrument parameters on a single screen as well as draw motion data and view all parameters for selected effects at once. There are also undo/redo options for easy revisions and trying out different ideas.

With the librarian window you can easily organize patterns and kits and access the complete TR library to find instruments and sounds.

The TR-Editor also makes it quick and easy to name and rename your hardware patches, kits and projects.

How to get the Roland TR-Editor?

Roland’s TR-Editor is available to all registered users of the TR-8S/TR-6S through Roland’s Cloud Manager, the software interface for Roland’s ever expanding cloud based library of virtual instruments, effects, presets and sample packs.
