Vermona Kick Lancet is a handy analog percussion synthesizer with focus on kick drum sounds — you might have expected this.
The heart of the Kick Lancet's sound structure is an analog oscillator that produces sine and square waves, which can be blend seamlessly from one to the other. Two independent envelope generators with a decay/release phase can modulate the oscillator's frequency and the VCA. Additionally, the VCO pitch can be modulated by the fast LFO (3Hz to 3kHz, triangle). Noise and a pulse signal can be added in the MIXER section. Vermona even has a BALLS parameter for making it really big.
- Compact dedicated analog kick drum module for your desktop
- Kick Lancet can be triggered by MIDI and also offers the following trigger inputs:
- GATE: A gate impulse can trigger Kick Lancet in the normal way, with additional accent or completely dynamic depending on the incoming voltage.
- SWITCH: Simple short current trigger (i.e., momentary foot switch).
- AUDIO: Offers the option to trigger Kick Lancet by an audio signal, static or dynamically. Drum pads can be connected here.
- The controls on Kick Lancet are as follows:
- DECAY: controls decay time of VCA
- PITCH: oscillator frequency
- BEND: envelope intensity (pitch)
- TIME: envelope speed for BEND
- FM FREQ: LFO frequency
- FM INT: LFO intensity (pitch)
- ATTACK: adds a pulse to the signal
- NOISE: adds noise to the signal
- WAVE: mixes between sine and square waveforms
- BALLS: more fatness!
