E-mu Modular System (mid 1970s)

This modular synthesizer is one of world first modern polyphonic synthesizer (after historical Warbo Formant Organ (1937) and Hammond Novachord (1939-1942)). In 1973, E-mu Systems independently developed polyphonic synthesizer technology (i.e. note assignment using microprocessor), and it was applied on their E-mu Modular System. In afterwards, this technology was also licensed to other manufacturers, and the results are well known Oberheim 2/4/8-voices (1975,1977), and Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 (1977). [1]
