When you’re crafting melodies and patterns, nothing beats the immediacy of dedicated controls. Metropolis patterns are built in stages not just steps. Each stage has four dedicated controls to dial in instant melodies, repeats, skips, and slides. Dive in deeper to adjust direction, quantization scales, clock dividers, shuffle, and more. Inspired by the Ryk M-185 System 100m, the Metropolis has built its own reputation.
Voice Allocator / Note Hocketing / Analog Shift Register
Patching is all about creativity. You could simply mult your sequence across your rack or let Shifty spread the notes across time, holding, swapping and routing them. Queue up notes or CV for distribution to up to four modules and dive into the world of hocketing, shift registers and pseudo polyphony.
The René music synthesizer module is the world’s only Cartesian Sequencer for music synthesizers. Named for the French philosopher & mathematician René Descartes, it uses his Cartesian coordinate system to unlock the analog step sequencer from the shackles of linearity.
Usage of boolean operations between trigger inputs.
Provides quantized voltages and also unquantized voltages at the same time.

-Maximum amount of artist controlled musical variation, derived from minimum amount of data input
-ALL programming done real-time, programming of René is a key performance element
-Up to 4 clock inputs and 2 CV inputs may be used simultaneously to achieve complex, musical patterns
-1 Quantized Voltage Out (forced to programmed musical scales) useful for controlling pitch on DPO
-1 non-quantized voltage out, useful for controlling timbre or pitch throughout the system
-2 gate/ pulse streams, useful for generating Timing Events within a patch or to Trigger an Function Generator such as MATHS
