The Analogmafia - Roland Ingenieure "packen aus" ;-)


Auf Analogue Heaven kam grade folgendes:

Two of my former bosses are on the team (Kikumoto and Nakamura). The guys on the team are mostly retired, doing projects like this for fun. Kikumoto has built an incredible humanoid-style drummer robot at home. Anyway, back to their RC-808:
