The RYK Modular 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.

New for 2021: Now you can connect two M185s together to create powerful 16 stage sequences using the new expansion header.
