Vermona DRM1 is a great drum machine and a bass synthesizer designed as a 5U rackmount unit. It is a fully analog device with 8 channels for generating percussion and bass sounds, as well as a very detailed and intuitive interface, the 73 controls of which will accurately give you the ability to fine-tune all parameters on the fly without menu diving.

The waveform library includes a kick, 2 percussions, a multi, a snare, a pair of hi-hat, and also a clap. The controls are slightly different in each case, which makes it possible to reveal a wide variety of percussion, and even bass.

You can change the pitch of the kicks, decrease/increase the attack and decay to create dense and extended kicks (like in TR-808). The percussion retained the same set of knobs as the kicks, except for noise control. "Multi" has 3 pitch knobs and a filter, cymbals/hi-hats offer knobs for attack and decay, a resonant filter, and a pitch change knob for the synthesis of very "high" hi-hats. And finally, a snare and a clap share the control over reverberation, noise, decay and filters.

The synthesizer has rich connectivity options - separate line audio outputs for each channel, a stereo output for the combined signal, an output for the headphones, MIDI connectors (In/Thru).

Unlike the earlier mk2/mk1 that were produced before (different versions of DRM1 have been running for 15 years), the latter option has a kick placed on the Drum 1 channel to generate thicker, enriched with overtones bass, and a step morphing of the sound wave (sine into meander) instead of the former "distortion" option.

DRM1 mk3 has standard and deluxe versions, which differ in the quality of the controllers. The standard version has plastic knobs, the luxury version has chromium plated aluminum ones. There are versions in two colors - black and silver.
