VERMONA - fourMulator [Quad Digital LFO]

Post by xtront » Fri Oct 12, 2012 1:27 am

:nana: :banana:

I'm happy to show you Vermona's new module "fourMulator":
-It's a Quad Digital LFO & Gate-Generator. It contains 4 equal LFOs with 6 waveforms each: Sine, Tri, Saw, Ramp, Pulse and S&H. Units 2, 3 and 4 are clockable or phaseable (!) to LFO1 or the next one to the left. Furthermore you will find beside the Wave-Out: CV-In, Reset-In and Gate-Out (full cycle).

When minimum one LFO is running in Phase-Mode the Gate-out jack will generate a Gate-signal. It's very funky what will happen if all 4 LFOs are running in Phase-Mode: complex controllable Gate-textures are the results! :D

listprice is around 370€, modulewidth is 34TE.


The videos where made with the unlabled prototype:

a good picture will follow asap.

Sounds sick. Such beefy knobs! I like this trend towards bigger modules. What going on in the first patch. I see the talking synth being modulated, but can't tell what the doepfer modules are.

Please have a closer look to the video description on youtube.

There's only A-140 ADSR & A132-1 Dual VCA as expansion to show how does the Gate-out works. ;)

great module...quite big though!
I think it´s derived from the perfourmer LFOs, same package of features

great that vermona is porting the perfourmer features to euro, I´d love to see the oscillator and filter too...or a little voice module :party:

Looks really good! 4 tempo synced LFOs = fantastic, but I would personally be more interested in a "twoMulator" (2 LFOs and the sync section in 16-18hp) due to limited space in my case! :party:

xtront, are you from Vermona? If so, I find it rather funny that your location says West-Germany, considering the history of Vermona :hihi: ;)

Thanks!

oto: no, I'm not from Vermona. I'm just a friend of the company / Thomas Haller and a little bit more. That's it :D
-West germany is correct: near cologne

So uhm.. can i use the speed/phase knob to multiply/divide the frequency coming to the main clk input when the LFO is set to CLK?

...because if i can - i'm replacing my flame clockwork with this asap :)

...and also how long are the trigger pulses? It's proving somewhat tricky to find modules that play nice with the drumdokta

I've been wondering. It seems like vermona are putting quite a few interesting modules on the euro market, but there's no product page for these goodies?

I know i can find a little info on two of their modules on the blog, but... well... :despair:


Also, I have to say a TwoMulator, as already mentioned, is a great idea! That would probably be the best compromise for a small performance system.

.. and then i woke up seeing how useful this might be (assuming, of course, that i interpret the functionality correctly). Can it help me do clock division / multiplication?

The speedknob is used to multiply/divide the frequency. How good it's as Triggersource... hmm no idea I couldn't check it.
- Trigger-Pulses are always one LFO full cycle long. BTW: fourMulator has a Tap-Tempo generator to clock itself and external stuff like sequencer.


The vermona modules will get an own part on their homepage, they know that! To put 'em on it is a another thing. ^^
-Blog will be shut down in the near feature and all infos integrated on their HP.

A "TwoMulator" COULD be possible in 16/18TE. See, you would loose the wonderful Gate-Seq or the trigger-outs... But: let's don't talk about the unseen land ;)

By the way: All 4 LFOs can also run FREE,too. ;)

and if you clock the fourMulator from an external source like a "Kenton Molular Solo" the ext. clock is passed thru to the clock-out.

Can you get random triggers like the Clockwork?

sorry, so random triggs. It's not a burst generator. ;)

GATE-Seq out works only when minimum one LFO is phased to the LFO on it's left. Maybe you could get interesting results if you phase all LFOs to LFO1 when you reset each LFO from another source. :)

The fucking innovations in euro is nuts right now!! For being a niche market, there's so many new and exciting things. I really like the looks of this, it'll be tough love between this and my clockwork..

No kidding, keeping up with the module announcements is getting difficult. :woah:

man ... i'm thinking very hard to replace my SSL mod orgy with this!
i don't use the more advanced features of the mod orgy anyway.

one question--for the "trigger" mode i assume it's one shot? but there's only 1 trigger in for all the 4 LFO's?

thx!

FrequencyRange is around lower Audio. Not really to use as VCO Replacement.

yes, let's do so! ;-) Each LFO has it's own reset-in. the SUM is controllable by clock and a reset for all inc. the Gate-sequencer.
