I don't have any experience with Vermona stuff, but I definitely think that the 14 is one of the most aesthetically pleasing synthesizers designed. :goo:
It’s such a beautiful instrument. Looking at it makes me smile, and has a soothing effect on me. The light blue color. The beautiful pearl-colored knobs. The immediacy. THE SOUND. Gorgeous. Something that needs to be experienced, like a CS-80 or a 9-ft Steinway grand.
Noisemakers: Maracas. Squeaky shoes. Bean-induced flatulence.

Can I ask, how is the tuning stability on the Lancet and Lancet 15?

Apparently there were some slight changes to the VCA circuit for the '15 to reduce noise.
Which do you have? I’m considering buying the pre 15 for $250.
Yeah for $250 absolutely go for it!

I got the 15’ recently for $350 and absolutely love it but I can’t imagine the sound is that different between the two versions.
Thanks... ended up pulling the trigger :miley:

Cool, I was a bit worried, I had a slim phatty I had to sell, it was so hard to get in tune, a lot of drift and took about an hour to get to a usable level

All i can say is i havent noticed any tuning drift but i also havent used mine in a fair while. It's basically one voice of a perfourmer, so it's probably as stable as that synth is, which seems to be very stable.

Anyone using the retroreverb?

I had one for a long time. Really fun, useful and great sounding machine. I think I used the filter more than the verb.

not sure if you're referring to the Lancet or the larger one. excellent thread on the Lancet over here: viewtopic.php?t=82423

I have one and love it. don't use it enough though, to be honest. I should work on that...

Was playing around with my 'semi-modulars' today, and had a sequence from the SQ-1 going into a Dark Energy mk 1, decided to hook it up to the Mono Lancet instead, through the dock CV/gate inputs, and wow! Just such a gorgeous sounding synth. I know it's unfair, cos Dark Energy is 1 osc, but it was really an interesting comparison. Went back and forth a few times to see the difference. Can't say i have heard such a nice tone that sounds exactly what i want a synth to sound like. I love my old Rolands etc, but the Vermona is, as i have said before, just class. Should have recorded an example, maybe will do it one day.

I’ve got a retroverb. I use it on every track I make. I run my drums through it. I’ll never part with it. Also sometimes I put some stuff through it for the dubbed out spring reverb. I don’t know if it’s meant to be used this way but it kind of has a lip in the back of it you can lift it a little and drop it back down to get some wicked spring crashes, much better than the button

regarding quality of Vermona/attention to detail: I just noticed that on both my Perfourmer and DRM1, all of the nuts on the jacks are aligned exactly the same. and all pointing "up". like this:
