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.
I’m please to say that JuJu now has adjustable Volume, Pan and pitch control for each sound. https://soundcloud.com/vacoloco/juju-pitch-demo This is me adjusting the handclap and cowbell pitch.
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 [...]
Things are moving along with JuJu, each voice can now be panned and you can change the pitch of each sound. I’ll be doing some demos once I’ve got the extra MIDI processing in to handle this. There’s still a lot of work to do yet, including adding the open/closed hihat (triggering an closed hihat [...]
I’ve now managed to add velocity to each sound in JuJu, controllable from MIDI velocity of course. In this demo, as with previous ones, I’ve got Tron (my drum pattern programmer) controlling JuJu. https://soundcloud.com/vacoloco/juju-v4-velocity-demo This was actually quite a lot of effort, and required me to work out how to do quick, efficient, signed multiplies [...]
This makes for a happy sight for sore eyes, parts for the next 20 Zira’s packed and ready to go to the assembly place (plus one assembled one so they have a reference should they need it).
I’ve managed to resolve the issue with JuJu missing MIDI notes, it’s sound great now and I’m enjoying playing with it way too much! https://soundcloud.com/vacoloco/juju-v4-midi-fixed Again, triggered from Tron
I’ve finally managed to get eight voices into JuJu! The demo below demonstrates JuJu playing 7 of the Linn sounds (I didn’t have any more loaded) and is using a very basic and rudimentary MIDI parser, so it does sometimes miss a MIDI note, but that will get fixed, for now I just wanted to test the sample [...]
