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:

- Vermona Kick Lancet Review and Demonstration by Faxi Nadu
- More Than Kick - Vermona Kick Lancet Minimal Techno by OLEOTECHNO
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.
