Thank you for purchasing the Retroverb spring reverb. The Retroverb is an extremely flexible spring reverb unit, which can generate the typical reverb effects of its classic ancestors as well as very unusual sound creations. Although the Retroverb has a well organised and clear user interface, and the functions of the switches, potentiometers and jacks seem easy to understand, we would like you to please take a glance through this manual to become familiar with the functions and possibilities. We wish you much fun with your Retroverb, The VERMONA team.

Here youll find the GAIN controller and the MODE switch with their independent LEDs. The GAIN controller sets the input level, the GAIN LED lights up as soon as the signal becomes overdriven. You should ensure you set an optimal input level, where only peaks are indicated by the flashing LED. If the input level is set to low, triggering the envelope generator by the audio signal will not function as it should. (see page 7). The MODE switch sets the general manner of how the input signal will be processed. Besides the four possible modes, the MODE switch includes the BYPASS function (on two positions: first and last), which routes the input signal directly to the outputs of the Retroverb. The table on the top of the Retroverb shows the effect signal flow for the different modes: MODE EFFECT SIGNAL PATH SPRING EQ [VCF / VCA] SPRING EQ [VCF / VCA] EQ [VCF / VCA] EQ [VCF / VCA] OUTPUT L / R normal L normal / R reversed L / R normal L normal / R reversed
Mode 1 and 2
In these modes, the effect signal passes through the spring module, the equalizer and the VCF / VCA section. After being mixed with the original signal (MIX controller) it is sent to both outputs (L / R). In mode 2, the phase of the right channel is reversed, which generates richer reverb effects due to random annulments of frequencies. In Mode 1 both outputs drive the same signal in the same way.
Mode 3 and 4
Modes 3 and 4 are similar to modes 1 and 2 with only one difference: The ACCUTRONICS spring reverb unit is taken out of the signal flow. So the signal will be refined by the equalizer and / or the VCF / VCA section. In this mode you wont get reverb effects, but some interesting filter-, wahwah- and tremolo-effects. The phase of the right output is also reversed in mode 4. Note: In mode 4 it could occur that you wont hear any signal at the output by the left and the right channel cancelling each other out. Change to mode 3 in this case!.
- Page 5 -
With the two-band equalizer you can change the color of the reverb sound. In the signal flow it is directly after the spring reverb unit (only in mode 1 and 2). It is equipped with BASS and TREBLE controls for changing the levels for low and high frequencies at +/- 15 dB.
Voltage Controlled Filter / Amplifier
The VCF / VCA section includes a complete analogue filter and a voltage controlled amplifier.
Voltage Controlled Filter
The filter of the Retroverb is a voltage controlled 12dB-lowpass filter. It is activated or deactivated with the VCF ON switch. CUTOFF frequency and RESONANCE can be adjusted with the corresponding controllers. The EG INT controller, which works in a positive and negative direction, sets the amount for the ATTACK-DECAY envelope for modulating the CUTOFF frequency. Its also possible to change the CUTOFF frequency with an external control voltage (see page 9).
Low-pass filter A low-pass filter dampens frequencies that lie above a defined frequency. Frequencies below that so-called CUTOFF frequency can pass through the filter unaffected. If the filters output is routed back to its input, the frequencies around the CUTOFF frequency are amplified. This is the filters so-called RESONANCE.
- Page 6 -
Voltage Controlled Amplifier
The voltage controlled amplifier, amplifies the input signal depending on its control voltage. This means a high control voltage results in a high amplification, therefore on the VCAs output youll get a high volume. Contrariwise a low control voltage means a low amplification and therefore a low output signal. The necessary control voltage for the VCA comes from an envelope generator. The VCA is activated or deactivated with the VCA ON switch.
The ATTACK-DECAY envelope can modulate the voltage controlled filter or / and the voltage controlled amplifier.
An envelope generator generates a control voltage which changes its value in temporal progression. The ATTACK phase is the time which is needed to raise the voltage from 0% to 100%. The DECAY phase is the time which is needed to decrease back down to 0%. ATTACK and DECAY times can be set with the corresponding controllers.
The envelope can be triggered from different sources:
The input signal
When the input signal reaches a special level (threshold), the envelope will be started. This sensitivity (threshold) can be set with the TRIG SENSE controller. If this controller is set to the zero position, the envelope wont be triggered. The more it is raised clockwise, the more sensitive its reaction to the input signal will be.
An additional audio signal (audio trigger)
An additional audio signal can be fed in the trig jack EG on the rear of the Retroverb. The sensitivity of this signal can be adjusted with its corresponding trimmer.
A Gate signal
The same trig jack can also be fed with a standard Gate signal (positive flank) as it comes from modular systems or analog synthesizers.
- Page 7 -
An internal Clock
The REPEAT switch activates an internal clock whose speed can be set with the SPEED controller. The envelope will then be retriggered. The REPEAT LED shows the speed of the clock, in deactivated (light brightness) and activated mode (dark brightness). As soon as the REPEAT function is activated, the envelope does not react to any other trigger signal. Note: If the speed of the Clock is faster than the envelopes ATTACK- and DECAY times, the envelope will be cut.
The MIX controller sets the proportion between the direct and effected signal. If the controller is set to DIRECT, only the unrefined original signal can be heard on the Retroverbs outputs. If that is the case, the CRASH function has no effect. OUTPUT sets the output level.
In- and Outputs
The Retroverb can be fed with mono- as well as stereo signals. Stereo signals will be converted to a mono signal internally. The MONO/R jack works with mono signals, STEREO / L is a stereo jack.
- Page 8 -
The Outputs L / R are mono jacks. The signal on the right channel is phase reversed in modes 2 and 4,
CV / Pedal and Trigger Inputs
CV / PEDAL
You can connect an external control voltage or an expression / volume pedal to this jack for controlling the CUTOFF frequency of the filter. The intensity can be adjusted with the corresponding INT trimmer.
For connecting a CV source i.e. from a modular system or an analogue synthesizer, you need a simple mono cable:
To connect a Volume pedal a Y-cable is necessary:
Audio Trigger / GATE
These inputs are responsible for triggering the CRASH function or the ENVELOPE GENERATOR. They work either with a GATE signal with positive flank (i.e. from a modular system) or with an audio signal. If you would like to trigger the corresponding function with an audio signal you should use short, percussive signals. The sensitivity can be set with the corresponding trimmer.
Trimmer The trimmers can be adjusted with a small screw driver. The more you set the trimmer clockwise, the higher the intensity/sensitivity. Check the settings of the trimmers if any of these functions do not work correctly.
- Page 9 -
Its possible to connect footswitches to these jacks.
CRASH and EG
The CRASH function and the ENVELOPE can be triggered with a connected footswitch.
VCF and VCA
The functions VCF ON and VCA ON, which have an own switch on the front panel, can be (de)activated with a connected footswitch. As soon as a plug is connected to these jacks, the switches on the front panel do not work anymore.
For connecting a footswitch for the CRASH, EG, VCA ON and VCF on, you have to use stereo TRS plugs as shown below:
You can connect a footswitch for doubling the BYPASS function.
Simply try it out!

Artist: Monoton Title :Blau MONOTONPRODUKT 02 26y++ Label: ORAL Catalogue #: ORAL CD09 Release date: june, 2006 Blau: This Monotonprodukt is a CD release of the blau vinyl written and produced by Monoton in 1980. Remastered in 2006. It also contains 3 unreleased tracks from that period. Since the late 70's, early 1980's, Monotonprodukt and the "Institut fr wissenschaftliche Sensation" (Institute for Scientific Sensations) have been working on the transposition of metamathematical structures, natural constants and resonance patterns in models of "bionic" psycho-active automat music. Publications, installations and long-term experiments include among others electro-acoustic representations of square roots, potences and periods, Pi-factors, Fibonacci sequences, Feigenbaum-Numbers, "Magic Squares" and others. Konrad Becker wrote : Monoton on a quest for the spirit in the machine investigated the representation of a numeric structure on resonance field level; numerical systems and mathematical nature constants as values and proportions for bionic sound. Not only natural constants and their sub-elements offered themselves for operational definitions, but any proportion of numbers, the musician with the calculator in hand. Regardless of the aspect of universal machinic patterns, the transcendence of patterns, the "de-programming" and the "deletion" or reactive conditioning was their interest in transformative music. Noise is a simultaneous chaotic superposition of all frequencies, and the hearing of "everything" and thus nothing at a time in the constant vibration of "monotonous simulation". It is on the basis of these subjective and oracular properties, that transformative music may be explained.

Monoton: Konstante Vibration Bionic Automatons Less than Twenty years after Robert Moog presented his first synthesizer in 1962, the costs for electronic music productions had decreased to such an extent that it became more widely affordable. By 1979 electronic sound became pervasive and a widening scene participated in the discovery of new sound worlds, the fascination for the transhuman poetry of machine music. Synchronized analogous sound generators like transposed bird voices allowed for complex modulations of wave forms. It gave way to adventures into sound space, beyond conventional notations of bars and points, past tonal or atonal. Based on the hypnotic effects of all repetitive music monotony produces variety listening to always the same, you end up listening to something different. Autonomous zones in the information war by means of subversive neuro-stimulation, the repetitively woven sound patterns announce the twilight of the gods of the hierarchies of classical song structure.
