Roland R-8M Total Percussion Sound Module 1U Rack Mount Midi Drum Machine - 100V

The R-8M is the rack version of the classic, R8 drum machine, lacking the sequencer and pads.  It features 16-bit drums which are known for their sound and quality. It has a punchy sound and 6 outputs. Great for classic techno sounding rides and hats and will produce some great electro kicks and snares after a little processing. You can edit the sounds too! It has been used by Aphex Twin, Rick Wakeman and more!
