Intellijel Metropolis ( RYK m-185 in Euro)

[video][/video]

We worked out an agreement with Ryk earlier this year to create an the only official Eurorack adaptation of his brilliant sequencer design. It has taken many months to procure all the special parts and the design has already gone through several hardware revisions.


Some of the features :
-Sequencer modes:
Forward, Forward-fixed, Reverse, Reverse-fixed, PingPong, PingPong-Fixed, Random, Random-fixed, Brownian, Brownian-fixed
-TB-303 style slide (constant time portamento) with adjustable time
-Stage skipping (double click slide buttons)
- Internal quantizing with selectable scales and keys
-Can act as a master clk with BPM control or slave to an external (using clk src function)
-Save/load panel settings
-shuffle
-Internal clock divider
-Sync output (sets output pulse on last clock step of a sequence, used to slave other sequencers via reset)
-Two assignable AUX inputs which can control: gate length, transpose, key shift, root shift, sequence length, and step divisor.
-config menu to set slider pitch range, clock div type, clock offset
-tap tempo when in internal clock mode and tempo lock with bpm detect in external mode.

-All menu actions are one level deep. i.e. press the menu button and spin the encoder. There are no hidden levels or sub menus.

All the core original m185 functions are there too. You can read more about the original RYK M-185 project here RYK m185

Danjel,

This is getting ridiculous now. I don't have the space for all of this anymore! I think I need a boat of just Intellijel at this point. Well done, well done!

This deserves an official 3-bacon salute.

I got into DIY too late for this project and I always regretted it...

@intellijel, what a great looking adoption of an already great design. You are on fire!

I would imagine that brownian means that on each step it will flip a coin and decide randomly whether to take a step to the left or a step to the right (aka random walk). Contrast this to random mode, where any step is a potential next candidate.

Wowsers. That's a very impressive module.

Just the bpm display is something people have been asking for for a while - and that's just one of the bonus features..!

Personally the sequencing and quantizing modules are some of the most interesting and exciting - even more so than the amazing oscillators and filters coming out.

Danjel - can you elaborate on the latency you mentioned?

And a random generator. And a LPG. Add those in and I'd be extremely happy with an all intellijel, 6u boat.
