Vermona DRM 1 Mk3 // analog drum synthesizer
The DRM1 MKIII is an analogue drum synthesizer.
It offers eight instruments, each with seven knobs for forming the sound plus a panorama- and a volume-controller. The user interface is absolutely clear and intutitve – one knob, one function.
The instruments on the DRM1 MKII are as following:
Mainly but not only for making big and fat kick drums.
- DRUM1 and DRUM2
Very flexible instruments that can generate kick- and tom sounds a s well as bongos. Anything from zapp to bling and fantastic PIUU…
Three oscillators can be detuned and gives you nice cowbell-like sounds. If you like submarines you can create a nice sonar ping.
What can we say about that? Well, you get what you expect.
- Hi Hat1 and Hi Hat2
That’s analogue (heavy- or soft-) metal.
Classic analogue hand claps.
The instruments of the DRM1 MKIII can be triggered by MIDI (of course velocity-sensitive). There is also an optional trigger option avilable that connects the drum machine to your analogue step sequencer or whatever gives out gate voltage or switch trigger. Beside the main outputs each channel is equipped with an individual output that also can be used as an channel insert.
Background video description:
One of the best versatile analog drum expanders currently made. Awsome KICKS, jazzy SNARES, weird dubby FX, the beast electronic CLPAS I ever has and the right mixture of CAMBALS
