December 2015 – Boxed Ear is proud to announce the free R-8 MkII sample pack.
Boxed Ear has announced the release of R-8 MkII, a free sample pack made with the classic Roland R-8 MkII drum machine.
You can hear the Roland R-8 on early 90s tracks by Aphex Twin and Autechre and it helped to define the IDM genre during that time. It’s characterised by a clean sound with plenty of bottom end and is still a favourite in many studios today.
