As I was finishing up my latest album, the thought struck me that I should make a kit and share the drum sounds I made it with.
Listening to the fullness, how punchy, and distinctly clear these pure analog sounds were, I felt that many others would likely enjoy having some Vermona power in their beat making arsenals.
Therefore, I decided to create a gift for the people who check for me. These are my personal sounds.
The very same ones I use and not some throwaway, reduced quality hits. Use them as you please.
It will be great to hear some new battery out there. As the classic sounds are ubiquitous at this point, and our music culture is supposed to be about “new” sounds.
In this project I do my part to propel the culture forward by contributing an update to the rhythmic lexicon.
A few words from Vermona themselves
Uniquely universal with unparalleled uniqueness
If you are searching for the perfect emulation of analogue drum classics, we unfortunately have to disappoint you. Our DRM1 MKIII is anything but a clone. It is rather on its way to become a classic itself after being in production for 14 years!
If you are looking for a versatile sound engine for electronic drums with distinctive character and authority, this will be the end of your search!
The DRM1 MKIII offers eight perfectly matched analogue drum- and percussion-instruments with extraordinary versatility, paired with highest clarity.
Knobs for each parameter
The DRM1 MKIII’s eight instruments generate individual sounds and therefore offer different sound controls. We have carefully scaled these with generous ranges allowing you to create unusual sounds, e.g. from a dedicated snare channel. You decide whether your bass drum sounds short and tight or loooong and voluminous.
With a total of 73 controls, the handling of this drum-synthesizer is unmistakably intuitive.
