Roland has released a new analog synthesizer, without fanfare, the Roland Driftbox-R Limited Analog Monosynth.
The Roland DriftBox-R Limited is an updated version of the original Reon DriftBox, with AIRA green styling:
Originally commissioned by Roland to demonstrate the the SBX-1 Sync Box, the DriftBox-R Limited features two oscillators, filter, and envelope generator.
Control is via five CV/gate connections, letting you integrate the synth with other analog gear.
- Updated version of the original Reon DriftBox
- A wide range of functions in a small desktop box
- Two VCOs, a great-sounding filter, and an envelope generator
- CV/gate I/O for semi-modular flexibility
- Use it alone, triggering its envelope with the onboard momentary button
- Combine it with other hardware for endless possibilities
Here is an unofficial demo, via Patrick OBrien:
Note: While we have not seen an official introduction from Roland yet, the new analog synth is showing up as available at Sweetwater for US $499.
