Vermona DRM1 MKIII Standard (Triggers)

Vermona’s DRM-1 mkIII is a powerful analog drum synthesizer with a vast array of sonic potential. One special characteristic of the unit is that it has no internal sequencer or patch memory. All triggers are sent via MIDI and all sounds are manually tweaked in real time using the 73 black plastic knobs on the unit’s front panel. The unit’s inherently analog sound gives it a distinct characteristic that many modern drum machines lack, making it invariably less predictable but also much more unique in terms of its emulation of classic drum sounds.

The unit features master L/R stereo outputs, as well as individual outputs per channel, which can be used as channel inserts for external FX processing before being fed back into the unit for use in the master mix output. While these features are wholly indispensable, the unit’s MIDI features are where it really shines: each of the DRM-1’s MIDI channels are fully reassignable, down to the point where the user can configure which MIDI notes trigger each individual voice.
