Vermona has announced that it plans to ship their ‘14 Analog Synthesizer keyboard in November 2016.

The Vermona ’14, introduced two years ago at the Winter NAMM Show, is an monophonic synth keyboard with a fully analog signal path. 

Features include:

  • 2 VCOs (sine, sawtooth, square) with suboscillator
  • Sync, FM
  • LPF with 12-24 slope
  • VCA

Official specifications and pricing are to still to come at their site. Vermona plans to launch ordering for the new synth in October.

Here’s the full text of their announcement:

How time flies. It dates back to January 2015, when we presented a first prototype of our ’14 Analogsynthesizer at the NAMM show. We also showed the unit on this year’s winter NAMM as well as on Superbooth 16 (1), along with an announced delivery date for this summer. Well, the summer slowly ends… but where is the ’14 Analogsynthesizer?

Previous history

Last year, we were happy celebrating our company’s 25th anniversary. VERMONA is an important part of this – a brand we revived in 2001 by introducing the DRM1 (2). To celebrate this jubilee year, we planned for something special: an uncompromising instrument, handmade in our Elektroakustischen Manfaktur: The ’14 Analogsynthesizer.

Much too early, Bernd Haller (3), the company’s co-founder, experienced engineer of electronics and passionate musician, deceased early in the same year. All of a sudden we had to rethink our plans and projects. We decided to postpone the synthesizer-project for the time being.

Current status

We revisited the project early this year and have now reached the exciting stage.

The ’14 Analogsynthesizer is no of-the-peg-instrument. Each unit is carefully manufactured by hand and needs its time to reach completion. From mid October on, we will accept first orders and start delivery in November. More details about the order process, scope of delivery, pricing and unit limitations will be announced early in October.

Since the first public appearance of the ’14 Analogsynthesizer, we consistently receive requests for this instrument. We thank you for your patience and your persistence. The wait is soon over and we assure, it was worthwhile!

  1. With the Moog Sub 32 on the high end and Bassline II completely dominating the low end of this analog monosynth market, they should capitalize on their talents and make a groove box combining a synth line with some drums and sequencing.

  2. from the feature list and demos on synthtopia, it strikes me that if Roland made something like this, people would shoot it down as a boring subtractive monosynth (not actually sure how many choices, strikes me as duophonic at most).

  3. With all the announcements in the analog world that of come out in the last two years, they missed a big window of opportunity.

    This looks pretty nice, but with the sub 37 offering more power for less money and the minimiog offering more power on the high-end, plus the cheap Arturia and Novation analogs, it seems like suddenly there are tons of options!

  4. I own the Perfourmer and it is (possibly) my all-time favorite synth. Is this related or its own distinct instrument?
