The Roland TORCIDO is a versatile modular effect combining classic Roland distortion sound and unprecedented control and flexibility. Able to be used as a tabletop unit or as a Eurorack module, and with an array of CV/Gate inputs, this compact 21 HP unit has a wide range of uses from studio production to live performance. Not only for modular synth users, TORCIDO is perfect for keyboard players, guitarists, DJs or any adventurous musician looking to expand their sound. Carefully crafted in Japan, TORCIDO has large, ultra-smooth controls with over 16 million steps of resolution and is fully reprogrammable via computer, smartphone or tablet.

Classic Roland Distortion Sound
TORCIDO can produce tones ranging from gentle, warm overdrive to heavy distortion. Using the large, high-resolution knobs, or standard 1/8" patch cables, you can independently control the distortion amount, tone, tube warmth, wet/dry signal, low-end boost and signal bypass. Both the distortion amount and tone parameters have input level controls for adjusting the modulation range when controlled from an external source. Two inputs and two outputs make TORCIDO a stereo-capable, 24-bit/96kHz audio interface for Eurorack systems and the built-in AIRA Link USB compatibility gives it single-cable, plug and play connectivity with the MX-1 Mix Performer.

Reprogrammable via Mac, Windows, iOS, or Android Applications
While it sounds great out of the box, you can fully customize TORCIDO’s internal signal path by re-patching its array of virtual sub-modules via a custom application that works on Mac and Windows as well as iOS and Android devices. Sub-modules are re-patched through a simple and intuitive drag and drop interface that even lets you choose which parameters are assigned to the high-resolution “GRF” knobs. You can reprogram TORCIDO in realtime via USB connection or save and recall patches with a simple audio signal. You can even share patches with other TORCIDO users.
