Vermona Perfourmer for drums ?

Hi, are there people using sometimes their Perfourmer exclusively as a drum machine ?

Let's talk about a minimum of 3 instruments for a 'complete' kit (one may use two channels for SD for instance), but 4-part kits are preferred, getting off with just one monosynth per instrument. You may have experienced complex multi-channel Roland TR patches, but in contrast i'm curious to see how people would submit to the Vermona's architecture to make 3 to 4 drum & percussion parts, be them reminding naive modular drums, old organ boxes or even better - nothing heard before. Think John Bender if this rings a bell... no need to be realistic.

What parts do you synthesize (BD, SN, HH, clave, unknown...) ? Do you make OH/CH or cymbal variations by hand on the fly ? Has someone succeeded in creating quite metallic sounding hats by dedicating 2 channels to them ?

One ADSR, but how snappy. One LPF, yet 4*sine. Can you make a huge advantage of what the synth has to offer, putting into dust what it has not ? Getting drum kits that could not easily be reproduced from most other synths ?

Maybe some of you combine the Perfourmer with another synth like the DRM1 to build a fully explosive kit ? This would be another topic, but you may step in.

Hope this thread will inspire you.
