Instrument Definition: Roland TR-8S

Since Hapax (currently?) only supports 8 drums per drum track, I had to split the TR-8S definition in 4. I decided to split the Toms, since I use those less frequent than all other instruments. Also made a “with Toms” and “without Toms” version for the alternate sounds.

@Maarten the trackname of the first one has “Alt” in it.

Thanks for creating these.
I just wanted to create one myself for the TR-8S.
I was also thinking to leave the 2 toms out :slight_smile:

Thanks! Fixed it :slight_smile:
