Vermona presents the Kick Lancet, a handy analogue percussion synthesizer with priority to kick-drum sounds.

The heart of the Kick Lancet\'s sound structure is an analogue oscillator that produces sine and square waves, which can be blend seamless from one to the other. Two independent envelope generators with a decay/release phase can modulate the oscillator\'s frequency and the VCA.
Additionally the VCO pitch can be modulated by the fast LFO (3Hz to 3kHz, triangle). Noise and a pulse signal can be added in the mixer section. The \'balls\' controller is for making it really big.
The Kick Lancet can be triggered by midi but beside that there are three different trigger inputs:
gate: a gate impulse can trigger the Kick Lancet in normal way, with additional accent or completely dynamical depending on the incoming voltage.
switch: simply short current trigger (i.e. momentary foot switch).
audio: offers the possibility to trigger the Kick Lancet by an audio signal – static or dynamically. Also drum pads can be connected here.
