VERMONA Drums for everyone

We currently offer three tone generators, specialized in creating drum- and percussion sounds. Each with its individual strengths and audience. We will take a closer look at DRM1 MKIII, Kick Lancet and twinCussion and give you some Youtube recommendations for rainy days.

DRM1 MKIII - the classic

It all began with the DRM1 MKIII. With its eight instrument channels it is the flagship upon the VERMONA drum-synthesizers. It offers a complete set of features:

  • a KICK channel for all kinds of bass-drum-sounds
  • two DRUM channels for toms, woodblocks, metallic FM-percussions and much more
  • a MULTI channel for more complex percussions like cowbells, woodblocks, different kind of pings, pongs and zaps etc.
  • a SNARE channel - you got it - for snares
  • two HI HAT channels for all kinds of cymbals and hats in two versions: open and closed
  • and finally a CLAP channel for … claps

All instrument channels can be triggered simultaneously by MIDI or analog GATE-signals (1).

Each parameter has its own controller. This not only makes spontaneous interactions possible, it is almost impossible to resist playing around with all these knobs. The DRM1 MKIII is a complete sound solution for vital rhythms.

Gaz Williams gives a detailed introduction in his video Exploring the VERMONA DRM1 MKIII.

Kick Lancet - the convenient specialist

The intention of this little machine is already revealed by its name: kick drums. Kick Lancets sound engine is based on the DRM1 MKIIIs KICK channel, mixed up with a little bit of DRUM channel, where it got its FM capabilities from.

That’s what it makes so flexible. Beside various types of kick drums it can create different kinds of metallic and wooden percussions, toms and much more.

Another highlight are its trigger possibilities. Beside MIDI and GATE it offers a very versatile audio-trigger input.

Kick Lancet is a great addition to soft- and hardware drum machines as well as an inspiring source for your own sample library.

We have not one, not two but three video recommendations for Kick Lancet:

twinCussion - the euroracker

twinCussion is the latest addition and brings VERMONA percussions into eurorack. Modular systems have their own requirements and challenges. That’s why we started from scratch when designing the module.

It offers two sound engines that can work separate or in common. Thus it can create up to two individual sounds ranging from kick drums to snares to hi hats. twinCussion is equipped with lots of in- and outputs to expand its possibilities with any modules you like.

Our Youtube recommendations… oh. twinCussion is brand new and we couldn’t find any video in the vastness of the internet.

Would you like to be one of the first persons presenting your twinCussion? We would be delighted to watch and recommend your video.

ÄTNA - Walls with Kick Lancet

ÄTNA from Dresden are Inéz and Demian Kappenstein. We were impressed by their song “Walls” that demonstrates their musicality and strong sense for sound atmospheres. We are looking forward to the release of their debut-EP coming in September this year.

Nice side effect: In the video to the song you clearely can discover Kick Lancet in action.
Enjoy watching and listening!

More than Kick ...

We found an impressive demonstration of the VERMONA Kick Lancet on Youtube. OLEOTECHNO made a good job showing how flexible the little drum synth - that we originally made as bass drum machine - really is. Enjoy watching!

DC / AC

As of now Kick Lancet, Filter Lancet and Retroverb Lancet work with a 12V-DC-Power Supply Unit instead of an AC-PSU. This starts with the following serial numbers.

Be careful and always check the labes on the devices itself as well as the notes inside the user manual before re-connecting your Lancet!
