In our third video about the percussion modules we show one way to create a complete rhythm using two twinCussions.

We published a new video about our twinCussion on our Youtube-channel. We show a simple way to create a snare sound using the eurorack-module.

New twinCussion video

Superbooth 17 will open its doors next week from April, 20th - 22nd in FEZ Berlin. We will be there to show our current eurorack line as well as some brand new eurorack stuff.

At last years Superbooth we presented the twinCussion module - which of course can be checked this year too. As an appetizer we have a new video about the module on youtube. Enjoy watching!

BTW: You will find us on booth # 0234. We are looking forward seeing you next week!

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.

Enjoy reading, listening and watching!

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.

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.

twinCussion module available now!

After 15 years of DRM1 and six years of Kick Lancet, we are carrying our expertise on electronic drum sounds to Eurorack modular systems: Welcome to twinCussion!

Instead of presenting a multitude of specialized but inflexible modules to create individual percussive instruments, we present twinCussion – a single module covering the whole spectrum of analog drum- and effect-sounds.
The module consists of two sensibly structured sound engines. Use these to create two different sounds fast and easy or combine both engines to sculpt more complex sounds. Numerous in- and outputs allow you to open up the predefined structures and expand these endlessly.

Pushing bass drums, prominent snares and chirping hi-hats are just a small part of what’s inside this module. We are sure, you will get a lot more out of twinCussion. Check it out! As of now, twinCussion is available at your well-sorted modular-dealer.

Find more information on the twinCussion product page.
