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 OLEOTECHNO made a good job showing how flexible the little drum synth - that we originally made as bass drum machine - really is.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!
More than Kick ...
Another year is over...
One year ago we sent you our Xmas and New-Years-greetings with the picture above. Of course we also wanted to show you what we are working on and what you can expect from us in 2015:
Our 25-year-old company history, which is inseparably connected to the reintroduction of the brand VERMONA in 2001, we actually planned to celebrate with the launch of the ’14 Analogsynthesizer.
Shortly after we presented the first prototype at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, our dear friend, colleague and co-founder Bernd Haller passed away in February after a short period of disease. He left a big gap in our familiar manufactory.
Consequently, we couldn’t realize some projects as announced, among others the ’14 Analogsynthesizer. But, forbearance is not acquittance and so we are eager to delight you with new products next year.
In plain language: The first ’14 Analogsynthesizers will be available coinciding with the 15th anniversary of VERMONA in 2016.
Thanks to all our customers and business partners. We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year. Take care!

Homepage, Youtube und fourMulator
What do these three things have in common? Apparently nothing! Despite we will unite them in this article:
This morning we launched our new homepage. Ok, there are still some contents missing and you are right, there is some room for improvements on the one or the other spot. But we are glad to publish the new and more straight-forward layout.
We also have our own Youtube channel now. A picture says more than a thousand words… what does that mean for videos?
Of course this comparison is not fair, but we hope to show you some nice little
films video clips about us and the things we are creating and lead you to one or the other aha-moment.
We already reached point three:
our fourMulator eurorack module plays the main part in our first Youtube video. You can see how the fourMulator acts as modulation and rhythm source in this setup.
Enjoy watching and if you like it, please show that by clicking the “thumbs-up-button”.
The VERMONA crew of the
PERfourMER MKII Arpeggio Session
Again there is a PERfourMER MKII video on Youtube, made by ArchieMusicCanada which is worth to be seen and listened to.
The PERfourMER MKII gets FOUR
… usually this is nothing to celebrate but especially for the PERfourMER MKII with its close relation to number four we make an exception. To honor the quadrophonic synthesizer we will bring back in mind some early reviews and demos:
- The German online magazine Amazon.de published a review by Thomas Paulsen with some extraordinary sound samples. BTW: Thomas also made some of the PERfourMER MKII audio demos on our homepage.
- Paul Nagle wrote and in-depth review of the PERfourMER MKII for the Sound on Sound magazine.
- Also the German magazine bondeo.de reviewed the synthesizer. The review includes some great analytic audio demonstrations and numerous detailed photos of the PERfourMER MKII.
- Lots of photos as well as can be found within the review of Theo Bloderer on Great Synthesizers.
- Last but not least there is an english review on Resident Adviser by Phil Moffa.
Enjoy reading and listening and don’t hesitate to contact us if there are any questions regarding the PERfourMER MKII.
1-RU modules for ModularCase 104
With DUAL BUFFERED MULTIPLE/INVERTER and DUAL BUFFERED ATTENUATOR/MIXER we present the first two 1-RU modules made by VERMONA.
Both modules offer useful and versatile functions for the 1-RU rails of or Modula Case 104 and compatible housings.
Eurorack Housing with power supply: Modular Case 104
Our Modular Case 104, that we already showed as prototyp on this year’s NAMM show and the Musikmesse in Frankfurt, is available as of now.
It is equipped with two 104-HP-rows of standard 3-U-eurorack rails as well as well as with two additional rows for 1-U-modules (tiles). The power offers 2000 mA for the positive and negative voltage (12 V) and additional 500 mA for +5 V. On the input site it can be used from 90 V to 240 V without manually changing the voltage.
The Modular Case 104 is made of waxed nut wood and is build in our Elektroakustischen Manufaktur in Germany.
New qMI 2 available as of now
The popular eurorack MIDI interface is available in version 2. The qMI 2 now has a GATE input for automatically toggling between both monophonic play modes. Each CLOCK outputs now can give out different clock rates derived from the incoming MIDI clock.
New Action Filter 4 available
We are proud to present the fourth version of our filter classic. Compared to its predecessor the Action Filter 4 is equipped with 1/4" jack in- and outputs beside the RCA connectors. Of course we stayed with the proven concept - that includes your active collaboration on cutoff and resonance knobs, the quality of the filter circuitry as well as its strong construction structure.
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!
