In this video, via Sense Music & Media, Martin Stimming takes an in-depth look at the Vermona DRM1 mkIV, a new version of their analog drum synthesizer.
The DRM1 has been on the market since the mid-nineties. The mkIV version has been updated with a complete overhaul of the power supply, along with other tweaks and optimizations. A list of the changes is available at the Vermona site (pdf).
