Thomas Haller of Vermona perfourms for us
There was a little corner of German analog synthesis in hall A, Vermona were sharing a booth with Doepfer so there were a lot of knobs on display. For those of you unfamiliar with Vermona, they were originally synth makers from behind the iron curtain where it was difficult for them to obtain microchips and through necessity they became experts in working with valves. These days they make their synths with whatever it takes to do the job and were showing their latest unit the Perfourmer.
Esseintially, it's a four voice analog module with each voice using a classic VC0-VFC-VCA structure with fast ADSR envelopes and LF0s. The individual synths can be configured in a number of ways: Monophonic, Polyphonic and Duopuonic.
Each synth channel features individual outs, plus an external input for accessing the filters. As well as the classic above mentioned operation modes it's possible to run the Perfourmer in FM mode where one Osc is modulated by the next.
Perfourmer is available now from www.audiomidi.com
