Mayer Electronic Music Instruments Intros Polyphonic Eurorack Modules (Sneak Preview)

At Superbooth 2019, Mayer Electronic Music Instruments introduced a new line of polyphonic Eurorack modules.

We talked with designer Horst Mayer, who gave us a sneak preview of the new line of modules.

The Mayer Eurorack system is centered around the M800 Polyphonic Virtual Analog Synthesizer. It’s a multi-timbral synth with four parts. The synth-engine has 12 voices, and each part has a stackable effects section. It offers four independent arpeggiator and step sequencers. It also has a built-in sample player.

The M800 supports a Module Expansion Bus, which lets you connect additional control modules. This gives you a modular way to expand your real-time control of the synth engine.

Mayer expects the modules to be available later this year. See their site for details.

  1. This looks amazing. Not sure why other Euro designers haven’t figured out how to make polyphonic modules before.

    The question I have is how CV’s work in this system. Looks like there’s CV in/out on these modules – are they assignable or something?

  2. we do need polyphony that we can control in modular, Chord is cool for noodling but we need to be able to play the chords we want in the progression we want them. glad this these guys are blazing the trail.

  3. Lovely design. Not my thing as I have some poly synths. I get the feeling this is a way of designing a poly synth without having to tool up for a keyboard, power supply, chassis etc. That’s ok but a different perspective on modular. A more modern one? One that loses the modular patching quirks- yes
