Roland R-5 Human Rhythm Composer

Description
This machine was a simplified incarnation of the famed R-8 Human Rhythm Composer. Without the ROM card expansion slots, the available sounds were a set list. It did offer MIDI In, Out and Thru, and most parameters could be changed via MIDI. It also featured velocity sensitive pads, and flam and roll options, which could be held for a widening effect.
