The DMC-8 Gen3 shares a lot of DNA with the smaller controllers, but it builds upon this backbone in its own way. The biggest difference is that the DMC-8 allows faster access to the various control modes and options. Each alternate mode is accessed simply by holding down one of the footswitches for 1 second. You can easily switch from mode to mode quickly without having to cycle through all the other options. In addition, preset and looper modes are easier to use on the DMC-8 due to having multiple buttons available on the same page. Each preset bank allows access to four presets instantly, while all of the necessary looper controls are on the same page for instant access. The DMC-8 Gen3 also has dedicated global tap tempo and Favorite footswitches, allowing you to have instant access to a special preset or to your tempo controls at any time.
