The Roland DriftBox-R Limited is an updated version of the original Reon DriftBox in AIRA green livery. Originally commissioned by Roland to demonstrate the the SBX-1 Sync Box, the DriftBox-R Limited is a cool analog synth module in its own right. The Limited-Run Reon Drift Box R is a semi-modular synth that'll enable you to create unique sounds and also expand the sonic palette of your existing synth.
Use it alone and explore the sonic possibilities, triggering its envelope via the onboard momentary button -or- pair it with all sorts of other hardware and the possible functions become seemingly endless. An abundance of cross modulation plus an envelope generator make for a diverse array of sound types: from textures to sweeps to rhythmic bleeps and bloops. Use it with a CV capable keyboard or sequencer and easily attain huge mono basslines and leads. The two VCOs can run at audio rate or low frequencies, which paired with all the cross modulation makes for some interesting combinations.
