Hello Samples has released Raw Vermona, a sample library featuring the sounds of the Vermona Syncussion DRM-1 analog drum synthesizer.
Raw Vermona inaugurates a new concept in sample library development.
Most contemporary sample packs focus on highly undynamic samples. Audio-destructive processes like normalization and digital compression are the norm rather than the exception. There is a loudness war going on in the sample world and everybody is on the same one-way-only train: my library has to sound louder than yours.
Here at HelloSamples we think the public (you) knows better, and that there should be a market for more dynamic sounding samplepacks. That’s why we decided to start our “Raw” analog library series.
Raw Vermona features
- 1700+ painstakingly handcut samples, organized by type and descriptively labelled.
- About 200 different sounds, 7x round robin hits + 300+ single one-shots.
- 45 Maschine kits.
- 25 MPC kits (1000/2500).
- 154 Kontakt patches.
- Recorded with Great River and API 512 preamps, using mastering grade converters (Black Lion Audio, Mytek).
The Raw Vermona sample pack is available to purchase for $10 USD.

Hollow Sun has released Vermona ET3, an organ sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Not much is known about the Vermona range of organs other than they were made in East Germany (or the Deutsche Demokratische Republik) in the late 60s/early 70s. They made quite a range of models including two manual organs witrh presets, etc., but being behind the iron curtain back then, they didn’t make much of an impression here in the west. Which was a shame really because Vermona were also making some great amps and a spring reverb at the time.
We’ve teamed up with Charles Tyler who owns a working Vermona ET3 in excellent condition…
Vermona ET3 features
- Each drawbar multi-sampled separately.
- Full mixing of drawbars on scripted panel.
- ADSR envelope and filter for synth sounds.
- Amp and cab sim plus rotary speaker.
- ‘Damage’ control re-creates faulty instrument.
- 5 octave range – extended bottom octave.
The Vermona ET3 for Kontakt is available to purchase for £15 GBP.

Detunized has released La Ramona Piano Strings, an Ableton Live pack that reassembles the Vermona String Piano.
The original from 1978 features two main sounds named Piano and Strings. Each of them consists of three adjustable registers. So the piano sound is composed of a piano, a clavichord and a spinet layer while the string sound is composed of a cello, a viola and a violine layer.
Like all stringers of this time the instrument is built around a main oscillator that gets divided into 12 frequencies of the according octave. What makes this vintage instrument special is the multiple analog chorus unit that colors the sound in its unique way.
La Ramona Piano Strings for Ableton is available to purchase for €4.80 EUR. New Detunized subscribers pay €1.30 EUR as part of the “3 Pack subscription”.
