The VacoLoco Zira and GorF got a mention in this months (the October edition) of Sound on Sound. We were mentioned in the Korg Volca article as “alternatives”, the item reads – “There aren’t many serious synth/sequencer rivals that are comparably priced but I should mention the rather lovely Zira and GorF from the UK’s […]

The PCBs for GorF-XL are in, I’ve done a few tests and they ‘beep out’ fine. Which means the inner layers are there! Next step, building one and testing it.
Well, things are moving on. Beta testing is almost at an end and we’ve got revised hardware (improved screening and no mod wires needed), so I’ve just ordered the first 4 layer PCBs for the first 25 GorF-XLs and started getting prices for the remainder of the parts. Once we’ve sold a few Zira’s we […]
I have one GorF-XL beta unit left, if you’re interested contact me, you’ll need a Doepfer power bus with +12v, +5v and -12v power rails. You’ll also be expected to help write the user guide and contribute to finding bugs. There is a cost, but it’s basically the cost of the parts and postage.
It’s been a superb month, only two GorFs remain in stock. This means I have enough money to invest in some more tools which will open up a whole new set of options for the future. I want to say a very heart-felt thank you to everyone who’s purchased a GorF with their hard earned money, […]
GorF is selling very well, and we’re down to our last three assembled units in stock. Once they’re gone it’ll be a few months before we have stock again as we’re going to be releasing some assembled Zira‘s shortly. For now, here’s a picture of the new assembled/cased Zira.
It’s been a while since I posted an update about GorF-XL. GorF-XL is currently in beta test and we’re looking at a second run of prototype PCBs to address the mods needed to the first one and also to ensure when they go for emission testing they’re as good as can be. Software wise, A […]
I’m pleased to announce that GorF is now available as a fully assembled and cased version. GorF has had a bit of a facelift too, it has a new case which now completely encloses all the parts. This includes the rear which was previously exposed. I have a few of these to sell, which can […]
Well, it’s been a hectic few weeks but the beta GorF-XLs are assembled and ready to head off to the beta testers.
I’ve uploaded a taster video for GorF-XL, showing some of the new features, including step skip, gate length and the improved user interface. The main feature is that GorF-XL has CV outputs for note, gate, velocity and CC.
