Dual voice design for powerful sounds
The Driftbox R is a versatile synthesizer for its size, capable or generating sounds normally reserved for large modular systems. The dual voice design employs two powerful VCOs with a frequency range spanning 0.1 – 10kHz. The precision rotary controls allow you to dial in your signals with precision, from VCO frequencies to volume, modulation and resonance. The voltage-controlled oscillators feed the VCF and VCA sections, providing a wide range of controls to create a variety of tones and sounds.
Between the two oscillators you can obtain an array of waveforms. VCO 1 can be toggled to generate sawtooth, triangle, square, rectangle and square waves; providing the perfect base for creating a myriad of sounds. The seconds VCO allows you to switch between sawtooth and square waveshapes. Each oscillator can also be modulated by the other, allowing you to create more complex sounds, ranging from gritty basslines to FM sounds and more.
Low pass filter and envelope generator
Shape and texturise your sounds. The VCF section is comprised of a 24dB low-pass filter which you can use to change the tonality of the sound your creating. The VCA section provides with an AR D/S envelope generator, perfect for shaping tones. There is also a dedicated rotary control for the envelope depth, which can be overridden, virtually turning the Driftbox R into a drone generator.
Compact design handcrafted in Japan
Reon Driftboxes are handcrafted in Osaka, Japan using traditional through-hole components and fully analog circuits. The through-hole design is inspired by classic vintage synths, providing a versatile sound palette that’s reminiscent of the late ‘80s. The synthesizer also features a wide range of connections including CV I/O for a range of parameters. Each of the voltage-controlled oscillators feature their own CV input for controlling the frequency. Also included is a gate input for trigger the EG, CV inputs for the VCA and VCF section, as well as a MIDI input.

Your order may contain items that use a 240V UK plug
Any electrical items in your order may have been designed to work with a 240V circuit, using a United Kingdom G type plug connection. An adapter or transformer may be required for these items to work properly and safely in your country. Some items work with a range of voltages, or have a switchable voltage control built in. Please refer to the specific product details for further information.
