The Mono Lancet is a compact synthesizer with big sound, easy user interface and charm. Two analogue oscillators take care of a solid sound foundation. Oscillator one creates triangle-, sawtooth- and square waves and can be set one octave lower than the second oscillator. The latter produces white noise instead of the triangle wave. The pulse width can be modulated through the modulation wheel (MIDI) and/or an external control voltage (see Extension). The glide generator has a legato mode or can always be active. The voltage controlled lowpass filter has a slope of 24db per octave. On high resonance settings it starts to self-oscillate and produces a stable sine wave that can be played in a range of about 2 ½ octaves.
On MIDI site the cutoff frequency can be controlled by velocity and/or aftertouch. There’s a good sounding VCA inside the Mono Lancet that can be modulated by the ADSR- or a fixed organ-like envelope. On demand it additionally can respond to velocity. The classical ADSR envelope generator can modulate the VCO- and VCF frequency and the VCA. The LFO generates rectangle- and triangle waveform as well as sample & hold and is modulation source for VCF and VCO.

Just a quick video to show my Vermona Mono Lancet in full working order. It’s sequenced by a Yamaha RM1X and the drums were also created with the Lancet and sampled into an Akai S5000 for sequencing.
It’s not a big secret, that we are working on a synthesizer that we will present at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt (6th to 9th April 2011). And it’s also no secret that it will be the successor of the discontinued PerFourMer, so it is very likely that our new baby will carry the same name “PerFourMer”, possibly followed by a “2″.
You can listen to some sounds generated by the prototype. Please don’t judge the musical value, it’s just a simple sequence and some knob tweaking on the synth.
Here’s a test with the new Vermona Kick Lancet, really an amazing synth kick… u can obtain sweet and light kick, to booom one, to 909 aggressive style… more u have all the knobs in front of you for a real analogue style control…. really amazing in my opinion…
it’s based on the kick of the DRM1 MKIII, but it has more controls
