New PERfourMER MKII audio demos

Even after more then five years the PERfourMER MKII still is most popular among creative sound enthusiasts and musicians. Again xtront created some exciting sounds with his unit and allowed us to publish them on our homepage.

Naturally we’d like to share them with you: demo page

Enjoy listening and last but not least: Thank you, xtront.

Again we found a beautiful demonstration of our PERfourMER MKII on Youtube. The video, made by Stochastic Design shows the quad synthesizer in musical context, sequenced by Ableton Live.
Enjoy watching the video!

Superbooth 16 - expectations exceeded

We had three marvelous days at Superbooth 16 in Berlin and would like to thank Andreas Schneiders and his Superbooth-crew for the successful event. If you couldn’t make it to Berlin, we’d like to lead you to some videos of VERMONA at the show:

Enjoy watching! We hope to see you at a Superbooth 17 next year!

Superbooth 16 from March, 31st to April, 2nd in Berlin


For the first time Superbooth takes place in the Funkhaus in Berlin from March, 31st to April, 2nd 2016. Superbooth is a specialized fair for electronic sound cultured and way more than just an exhibition of electronic musical instruments.

We are looking forward to welcome you on our booth BF310 and wish all of us some great days in Germany's capital city!

VCDrive: A cultivated portion of dirt!

We doubtlessly care for a clean and tidy modular system. There is a good reason why we carefully clean all of our modules, instruments and effects processors before packing and shipping.

However, audio signals themselves often benefit from a portion of dirt. And this is exactly what we build into the VCDrive, a voltage-controlled distortion-module that will add presence to your sound and helps it cutting through the mix.
VCDrive is not only suited to process audio signals. It will also mercilessly deform control voltages such as LFOs or envelopes to deliver dirty exciting results.

This is the slimmest VERMONA module so far. It is completely produced in our Elektroakustischen Manufaktur (electroacoustic manufacture) in Erlbach, Germany and available right now.

PS: We recommend using a slightly moistened soft microfiber cloth to clean our modules’ surfaces.

Succession: Mono Lancet ’15

Numbers in our product’s name have a long history. That started a long time ago when VERMONA instruments where called like EMP–1, ET–6 or even ET–6–2, SK–86, TO–200 or Regent 300 H.

Today we don’t use that much numbers in the names of our devices, especially products of the Lancet series go without them. This finally will change with Mono Lancet ’15.

The monophonic synthesizer got a small update. The most obvious change can be found on the LFO. It now has six instead of three waveforms: saw up and saw down, square, triangle, sine as well as sample & hold.

There are also some changes under the hood. Mono Lancet ’15 now uses a DC adapter. Thus it is compliant with the „Standby Regulations“ that were introduced within the EU.<br/> Its firmware can now be updated via an USB port.

Mono Lancet ’15 comes with the same outstanding sound and intuitive user interface as its predecessor. It will be available from official VERMONA dealers in April.

VERMONA at Dancefair on February, 13th and 14th


Next weekend, we will presenting some VERMONA gear at the Dancefair 2016 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Dancefair is an event for everyone who is interested in or simply loves electronic music. Many manufactures will show their latest products on the 1800 m2 Expo Floor. Beside that, there will be more than 200 workshops over the weekend.

Patrick Detampel, product specialists at Alex4, will be there to demo some electronic musical instruments, modules and more. Among others, he will show a Modular Case 104, packed with VERMONA modules: i.e. two fourMulators to trigger the latest twinCussin prototype and a DRM1 MKIII, connected to an Action Filter 4. Synth-wise there will be a Mono Lancet, integrated into the eurorack modular system via an Modular Dock.

We are sure that Dancefair 2016 will be an exceptional event, worth a visit!

Retroverb Lancet in action: More than springs

Insanic4 contacted us to point us to a video about the Retroverb Lancet that he made a while ago. The 5-minute video impressively shows what you can achieve with the filter section in combination with the LFO, envelope generator and spring reverb section.
At the end you can listen to the original sequence that was refined with the Retroverb Lancet.

Thank you very much, Insanic4 and to everyone: Enjoy watching!

Back home...

After one week in sunny California we are finally back in our Elektroakustische Manufaktur in Erlbach. It was good to be at NAMM 2016 and it was great to be part of the SchneidersBüro booth. So first of all we’d like to thank all at SchneidersBüro and Alex4, especially Jan and René for their fantastic job on location.

We were pleased to see smiling faces of people who played with our gear and are thankful for numerous conversations we had with existing and maybe future VERMONA customers.

BTW: Here are a few videos about VERMONA at NAMM 2016, enjoy watching:

New information about the ’14 Analogsynthesizer and the twinCussion will be available on our homepage soon. To get notified, just follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook.

So what’s next after NAMM 2016? Instead of attending the Musikmesse in Frankfurt this year, we were heading for a new adventure: Superbooth 2016 from March, 31st - April, 2nd 2016 in Berlin. We are looking forward seeing you there!
