Roland R8 / R8M percussion grinding patch box

Published on Jul 15, 2019

"The R8/R8M percussion grinding patch box is an external patchbay case that plugs into the main unit via the sound ROM expansion ports using a custom sound card as an interface. This allows the creation of circuit bent glitching effects without the need to perform any invasive mods on the machine itself.

The patch box itself consist of a 20 way main patching area and three combination patchable switches / patching multiples . Connections made between the patchbay sockets result in the digital drum sample data being temporarily glitched causing all kinds of bizarre percussion warping and digital brutality to be applied to the audio. Connections can be routed through the patchable switches so they can be turned on and off at the flick of a switch, or via the patching multiples in order to connect several sockets to each other at the same time."

"This has some appalling video quality as some cretin forgot to set the camera up correctly, but the audio is possibly better than our longer R8 / R8M demo, so we've uploaded it anyway."
