Introducing Hermod+
Introducing Hermod+
Hermod+ adds so much to your system.
Based on the established Hermod workflow and keeping the same form factor, Hermod+ offers a lot of new features, and a refined, more playful interface with extended connectivity.

Record CV/Gate, MIDI notes and modulations on 16 polyphonic tracks. Compose melodic variations across 16 patterns per track, and take advantage of the advanced step sequencer and the new effects to gain efficiency and creativity in studio and on stage.

Key features



8 CV/Gate and 8 MIDI tracks

Hermod+ offers 8 CV/Gate tracks (that can also output midi) and adds 8 dedicated MIDI tracks for your extra gear.

CV inputs

Record, edit and loop analog modulations or CV/Gate using the 4 CV inputs, and use them to synchronize Hermod+ to an incoming analog clock.

Record live

With an improved resolution of 96ppqn, record and playback your CV/Gate or MIDI performance seamlessly without any noticeable note shifting, for up to 16 bars per pattern.

Polyphonic step composer

The revisited piano–roll now allows intuitive polyphonic editing. Edit or program chords, melodies and rhythms using the 16 built–in pads for a quick and playful composition process.

Automation

Program or record automated modulations (CV and/or MIDI) for each track, in addition to midi aftertouch, pitchbend and sustain voices.

Dynamic effects

Add up to 8 real–time CV/MIDI effects per track. All effects are non–destructive, so they can be edited at any given time to add some variations to a performance.

Advanced ModMatrix

Use the modulation matrix to link incoming CV or CC messages to effect parameters. Each modulations can be attenuverted and offsetted.

Playable song mode

Build your song structures using up to 16 sequences per project. Play them into a predefined order or launch them manually for improvised performances.

Synchronized project swap

Quickly save and recall your projects on the SD card. Project loading can now be done in sync, without interrupting your performance.
Boosted connectivity.
The missing link between your eurorack system and the rest of your studio.
Editing made simple.
Fluid workflow with a redesigned Step mode
Step mode is where you can edit notes, modulations and gate events. Hermod+ offers quick ways to write melodies and rhythms. Zoom in and out to visualize and edit portions of your track precisely and break free from rigid grid sequencing.

The re–designed piano roll editor makes the vertical and horizontal scrolling easier and faster, while the new "row edit" feature allows for quick chords and drum patterns programming.

Create modulation curves by programming them directly on Hermod+ or by recording incoming signals, and send those curves via CV or MIDI to other parts of your system.

Polymorphic layouts for perfect integration
Hermod+ can adapt its voice layout to any patching scenario. Depending on your needs, any track can become a modulation output, a monophonic CV/Gate track, a polyphonic MIDI track, ...

For a track of CV/Gate note + velocity + aftertouch, or for a polyphonic CV/Gate track, simply group voices using the desired layout.

Take advantage of the 8 dedicated MIDI tracks, that can record and be programmed independently from the 8 CV/Gate tracks.
Mono + Velocity + Aftertouch
Add life to your mono synths, by outputting velocity and aftertouch to CV outputs
Polyphonic
Turn your system into a poly synth, or program complex hockets by distributing notes to multiple voices
Mix and match
Use one CV/Gate pair as a mono voice, another as a modulation source & gate combo...
MIDI tracks
8 dedicated MIDI tracks, entirely independent from the CV/Gate outs
Special effects.
Experiment with dynamic effects
Up to 8 real–time effects per track with creative parameters and generative features. Hermod+ is the canvas, the paint and the brush of your setup.

Advanced features



Time controller

Either Hermod is the follower or the leader, you can rely on its solid timing precision. Receive, compute & send a large variety of MIDI/GATE clocks & sync signals. We also added 2 dedicated gate outputs to generate various clocks and sync signals.

Transpose

Play or program notes on the TRSP leader track to transpose other selected tracks of the project.

Generative music

Generates patterns on the fly through the pattern generator, in a controlled-randomized way.

Trigger advance

Using a Gate input, launch (from a clock, a footswitch, ...) the playing of a defined number of steps.

LFOs

As each track can have its own LFO effect (synced or not), you can transform your Hermod into an 8–voice LFO module!

Use case scenarios
Eurorack systemDesigned to be the brain of your modular system, Hermod+ perfectly integrates in a Eurorack environment.

Loop, program and edit recordings of Control Voltage patterns thanks to the high–precision 16–bit CV I/Os and the high–resolution 96ppqn sequencer.

Use the modMatrix to add liveness, groovy rhythms and eccentric melodies to your system.

Recall projects at any time. Play with sequences and track mutes. Hermod+ helps you get organized with your eurorack system patches.
16–track MIDI polyphonic sequencerRecord notes and CCs from the midi inputs, play your synthesizers and drum machines, synchronize everything with its MIDI clock, control any effect parameters with an external controller...

Hermod+ is also a great and compact midi sequencer. You are free to patch only midi cables!
Computer hubEven if Hermod+ is 100% standalone, you can connect your computer or tablet and synchronize Hermod+ with your favorite DAW, software synths, and any MIDI-enabled app.

Hermod+ is the perfect link between the digital and the analog world. Its ultra-low latency make it an ideal USB to CV converter. Coupled with all its synchronization features, Hermod+ an indispensable Swiss knife.
Layouts examples
Default layoutsBy default, each CV/GATE track outputs a monophonic CV note pitch (across 10 octaves) and its related GATE.
Mixed layoutsThanks to Hermod+ polymorphic architecture, you can precisely define the track output behavior and mix layouts, depending on your needs.
