ReTubeVerb Review on Amazona.de

German online-magazine Amazona.de recently published a review of our tube-based spring reverb ReTubeVerb.

VERMONA Story and ’14 Analogsynthesizer review on Amazona.de

Earlier this year, Siegfried Schöbel - aka Onkel Siggi - was asked by Amazona.de to write a review about our ’14 Analogsynthesizer for the German online-magazine. When writing, the desire to learn more about the people behind the product emerged. So Siggi decided to grab his camera and recording device and visit our Elektroakustische Manufaktur in Erlbach. (Indeed he also brought sunshine to our region - thank you, Siggi).

Both, the ’14 Analogsynthesizer review with lots of sound samples as well as the Vermona story and interview are online now and are worth reading (and listening).

Amazona.de is in German language, but you can use Google’s translation tool to get the content.

’14 Analogsynthesizer Insights

Last November we delivered the first ’14 Analogsynthesizers to VERMONA-dealers. Since then we are continuously manufacturing the synth. We are able to make between 10 and 15 units per month. That doesn’t sound like a huge amount but measured by those numerous necessary work steps, this is no mean feat!

There are a total of about 45 units made. So as you can see: We won’t reach the limit of 222 ’14 Analogsynthesizers within the next couple of days. High demands on the instrument currently means delivery times of up to eight weeks. You will need to be patient if you already ordered or plan to order one. In order to overcome the waiting time we have listed two links about the ’14 Analogsynthesizer for you:

Six Mono Lancet reviews

This week Ask.Audio published a review of our monophonic synthesizer-expander Mono Lancet ’15. We looked through some of the reviews of its predecessor and were a bit surprised that the oldest of them was published in 2010 - six years ago.

Six years don’t make the synthesizer a ‚classic‘ (like our 16-years-old DRM1) but it may be on its way to get there.

The most obvious difference between Mono Lancet ’15 and its predecessor is the LFO. Mono Lancet had three waveforms for modulations whereas Mono Lancet ’15 has six. The main features are equal on both versions:

  • two analogue oscillators
  • a 24-dB-lowpass-filter with resonance
  • a VCA
  • a LFO
  • an ADSR-envelope generator
  • expandable with the Modular Dock eurorack module

Following, we link to six reviews that are available online, which makes one for each waveform of Mono Lancet ’15s LFO. Enjoy reading (and listening to the sound samples).

twinCussion: review and videos

German-based online magazine Amazona.de recently published a detailed review of our twinCussion (1) eurorack-module. Even if you don’t understand German you should check out the review (2) as it comes along with a couple of audio demos.

Ziad Sarrouh published two videos on his Youtube-channel. Both showing twinCussion in action. In the first video - Vermona TwinCussion quick Oscillators test (3) - he demonstrates the modules two sound sections. In his second video - 'Touch Me'- Modular Techno part 2 - Ziad Sarrouh uses twinCussion for kick drum- and hihat-sounds.

twinCussion - video and SOS review

We made a little video (1) that gives you some visual and audible impressions of our latest eurorack module: twinCussion.

As you already may know, twinCussion (2) is a twofold percussion module featuring analog oscillators, super-fast envelope generators and VCAs as well as plenty of in- and output jacks.

twinCussion also made it into the current October issue of British Sound On Sound magazine (3). So along with our video you can read what Paul Nagle thinks about the 24-HP-eurorack-module.

Enjoy watching, listening and reading.
