Brothers 👨‍👦‍👦 (Vermona DRM1 MKIV 8-voice analog drum synth // Perfourmer MKII + H9 + Bigsky + Pill)

video upload by 2-Minute Warning

"First video featuring the Vermona DRM-1 8-voice analog drum synth 😊 For a long time I've been stopping myself from getting one as I already have the MAM ADX-1 which is a bit an ancestor of this DRM-1! But the Vermona Perfourmer was feeling a bit lonely 😅

In this video, I decided to use my DAW to sequence both instruments as I wanted to be able to "play" the knobs on the instruments 😉

The track starts with the BASS (Voice 1 of the Perfourmer) and PLUCK (Voice 3 panned left & voice 4 panned right, of the Perfourmer through the H9 reverb). Then comes the KICK (Voice 1 of the DRM1) which is going into the Pill ducking pedal to trigger it.
Afterwards arrives the LEAD (Voice 3 of the Perfourmer through the Bigsky reverb + Pill ducking pedal) and the 7 other voices of the DRM1 (wanted initially to use them through the Particle granular delay, but didn't have enough time to blend it in! 😅).

* Hardware used *

// BASS:
- Vermona Perfourmer Voice 1

// LEAD:
- Vermona Perfourmer Voice 2 + Strymon Bigsky (reverb) + Pill (ducking pedal)

- Vermona Perfourmer Voices 3&4 + Eventide H9 Max (reverb)

- Vermona DRM1 (8-voice analog drum synth)

Retroverb Lancet: More Than Just a Spring Reverb

video upload by vermonagear

"We have several spring reverb products, but Retroverb Lancet is our most versatile. It has a multimode filter, a VCA section, and an overdrive.

For modulation sources, Retroverb Lancet has an LFO that can be synced to incoming gate signals, an envelope generator, and an envelope follower.

Do you know the typical sound of a spring reverb that has been kicked? With Retroverb Lancet, you can create that sound with the push of a button, or even trigger it with an external gate signal thanks to its unique CRASH function.

Retroverb Lancet is so flexible that it can even create percussive sounds. We made all the sounds in this video using it. If you want to learn more about Retroverb Lancet, please visit our homepage ( You can also leave your comments below, and we will be happy to answer them.

meloDICER/MEX3 — Jam Session with Logic Pro

video upload by vermonagear

"We hooked up two MeloDICER/MEX3-collectives to control software instruments in Logic Pro.

The left meloDICER is playing a bass guitar software instrument with a repeating pattern. The right meloDICER hits the keys of an electric piano plugin. It runs freely without repeating patterns while we are changing some settings regarding REST probability for voices 2 and 3, rhythm and melody.

Logic Pro is the drummer.

We hope you enjoy our little jam session. Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions or hints and would be happy to receive a thumbs up from you.

Trickledown Modular Tetris - A Quick Test After Filling The Holes

video upload by John L Rice

"Another quick test after changes. This is another side affect of the @vermonagear MEX3 coming out, because when making changes to my briefcase system I ended up stealing the @4ms_company Wav Recorder from this system for it, so I had to fill in the left over 6hp of space with something else. 😅🤓 I put in the @division6labs Mix VI and @noiseeng Clep Diaz."

TwinVCFilter Pinging Performance

video upload by vermonagear

"In this patch, we're using twinVCFilter as the sole sound source to demonstrate its versatility and sonic richness. FourMative CONTOURS is used as the pinging source for both filter sections. The envelope itself is triggered by randomRHYTHM.
One of the filter sections is sequenced by the 1V/OCT out of meloDICER.
All CUTOFF frequencies and the MIX function of twinVCFilter are modulated internally and by a fourMULATOR and a uniCYCLE."

Polyphonic Dreams: PERfourMER MKII, meloDICER and MEX3

video upload by vermonagear

"The PERfourMER MKII is sequenced by a meloDICER directly via MIDI through the MEX3 module. With MEX3 the meloDICER can create sequences with up to three voices.

The Floatingpoints Instruments (formerly @ERMErfindungsbuero) Multiclock is used as a MIDI controller for the additional REST parameters of voices two and three as well as for controlling velocity and ACCENT probability.

The @OTOMACHINES BIM is the only effect used in this performance.

Enjoy the show!

VERMONA patchplay n°1

video upload by vermonagear

"We play a patch using most of the modules we have currently in our line up.
The patch is centred around the meloDICER. We describe roughly what is happening so everyone can follow. With this series of recordings we want to give some sound examples and real world demonstrations.

Your Vermona-Team!"

video by vermonagear

"In this video we quickly explain the recent updates regarding the DRM’s connectivity and demonstrate how to generate dynamic trigger signals using a modular environment.
From now on also the analogue trigger inputs are dynamic, same as the midi inputs which provided velocity control ever since. Both the dynamic trigger inputs and midi veloctiy do not just control the output volume of a channel but rather effect the overall excitement of each channel’s circuitry, thus controlling its output volume.

There are different ways to generate dynamic trigger signals. While some sequencers provide it and some don't, in this video we show how to achieve it using modular setup."

VERMONA Announces DRM1 MK IV Drum Percussion Synthesizer


"We’re excited to launch this brand new update to our classic drum and percussion synthesizer VERMONA DRM1. The DRM1 is a key part in our history. Its first generation, released in the 90s as Syncussion DRM1, caught wide attention. The MKII-version then continued and broadened the success and breathed new life into the VERMONA brand at the turn of the millennium. With the DRM1 MKIII, that we have been building since 2006, we can now look back at a total of 25 years of DRM1! This makes it one of the longest-lived electronic musical instruments. And we’re ready to launch the next quarter-century with this analog drum synthesizer from VERMONA.

DRM1 MKIV: Familiar, yet evolved
At first glance, you may not notice any difference from its predecessor. Indeed, from the outside, there isn’t any! The overall concept and user interface have remained the same: There are eight instrument channels, each with nine knobs for sound shaping, pan and volume control. The DRM1 is a musical instrument, a creative tool that wants to be touched and played.

Instead of trying to reinvent or change an already well-proven external design, with this update to version MKIV we decided to focus on the inside. We took time to thoroughly listen into the circuits and put energy and care into its details: Thoughtfully tweaking frequency ranges, revamping control curves, adjusting levels and redesigning sub-circuits. Our goal was to make the DRM1 MKIV the best drum synthesizer we've ever built!

DRM1 MKIV: Sociable and dynamic
To make integration into your studio more comfortable, we equipped the DRM1 MKIV with USB-MIDI in addition to the standard MIDI connections.

The optional trigger inputs have been significantly upgraded. Beyond gate pulses, they now also accept different voltage levels for triggering the instrument channels dynamically. The DRM1 MKIV with trigger inputs can also convert the analog signals into MIDI notes via USB or the newly added MIDI OUT connector making it an incredibly versatile MIDI interface.

Whether you're controlling the DRM1 MKIV via a DAW, a hardware sequencer, or a modular system, you’ll have the proper connection and further the ability to send the MIDI notes to additional devices.

DRM1 MKIV: More power under the hood
The power supply of the DRM1 MKIV is completely new. It now works anywhere in the world, without having to manually change the mains voltage. This is a huge relief for all of you who use the instrument at live shows. No less important: it works more energy-efficient than the old one!

DRM1 MKIV: Availability
The DRM1 MKIV will be available in March/April 2021. We are looking forward to your feedback, comments and questions.

"This video presents a small patch using only the available space within our Modular Case 104. If you follow our performance, you will find us mainly playing this patch using the modules’ switches and buttons. While we were pleased with the sound of this patch and found it worth being published we also found it worth showcasing such method of patch control where we cannot mess anything up as switches and buttons allow for jumping between settings at no risk.


The twinVCFilter is driven into self-oscillation on both sections, forming a dual sine wave oscillator. The first sections’ frequency modulates the second section for enhanced timbre control.
Both filter sections are controlled by the ER-101.
The filter’s output is fed to the Morphing Terrarium’s (MT) sync input while the output of the MT is used to amplitude-modulate the twinVCFilter’s output. Mostly we let the MT run at lower frequencies to misuse it as an envelope generator in this patch. This does not work just perfect, but it also shows how flexible modular can be.

twinCUSSION 1 (left)

Section A is pitch-modulated by a mix of its envelope output and its sine wave output. This allows bending the waveforms symmetry while retaining the pre-patched pitch bend. Toggling the frequency range switch to HI while shortening the envelope’s decay drastically down gives a nice and sharp click sound and makes up for an excellent alternative to the voluminous kick, that we achieve when setting the range switch to LO position while increasing the decay again.
Section B receives CV-data from the ER-101 sequencer. We also routed a voiceover into the square wave output, where it gets mangled with the internal waveform. By toggling the waveform switch, we can drastically change the final output of this section.

twinCUSSION 2 (right)

Section A receives the noise output of twinCUSSION 1 which is being amplified using the twinVCAmp. This way we trim the mix ratio between internal and external signals. Thus we can select between clean and noisy sounds to switch between drums and snare.
Section B generates the hihats and is amplitude-modulated by its sine wave outputs resulting in some tremolo-like effect.

The sum of all drum sounds is amplitude-modulated by an envelope to achieve global dynamic control over the drums itself and the inserted voice sample.

We hope you enjoyed this patch and that we could lift your imagination in modular ways.
Thanks for watching!
