RYK Modular was formed in 2009 and released its first module the M185 sequencer in the Roland System 100m format.
The M185 was licensed to Intellijel who based their popular Metropolis and Metropolix sequencers on its design.
We have since developed the M185 in Eurorack format, featuring more advanced stage gate controls, and also the ability to split sequences in half.
Our latest module, Vector Wave, is a compact Eurorack stereo polyphonic synth voice, using FM and Vector synthesis.
We have also released a new module for the Roland System 100m format, the M175 Triple Resonator.
The M185 is the most intuitive and playable Eurorack sequencer.It appeals as a hands-on performance orientated module for easy creation of complex melodic sequences.It is the original multi-step-per-stage sequencer that inspired the Metropolis and Metropolix modules.• Features an expansion header for chaining two M185s for 16 stage sequences• Lots more quantisation scales• Live X0X style Gate Pattern programmingOVERVIEW• 8 unique gate modes for creative rhythmic possibilities• A/B split mode for two separate sequences, like having two sequencers in one box• 2 channels of CV/GATE and MIDI I/O• 15 Quantise scales OR pure analogue microtonal CV outputINPUTS & OUTPUTS• 2 channels of CV and Gate outputs• Expansion header to connect two M185s for 16 stage sequences• Reset input [ shared with MIDI input ]• Sync output [ shared with CH2 gate ]• Bidirectional Clock I/O• MIDI input for MIDI clock in, MIDI note transpose• MIDI output for MIDI clock out, MIDI note outputSTAGE DETAILS• 8 stages, each with individual 1-8 step repeats per stage• 8 gate modes per stage [ Off, Once, All, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, Probability or Programmable, and Long ]• Programmable gate patterns for 'on the fly' X0X style programming of gate triggersEVEN MORE DETAILS !• AB serial split sequence mode with 1-8 sequence repeats for AAABAAAB sequence structures• AB parallel split mode, for two separate simultaneous sequences that play at the same time• Root note offset and reset trigger options from sequence B to A• 2.5V / 5V voltage range selectable• MIDI note output including programmable velocity• MIDI to CV converter mode [wow]• Programmable glide per stage• Easy user upgradable firmware using MIDI sysex filesPLEASE NOTE THE KIT IS ONLY SUITABLE FOR EXPERIENCED BUILDERS.DIY-Kit-Type:THT-Kit-1.
