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.
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 finished building a couple of Ziras using the a new PCB. The new PCB fixes the mod made on the original. It also adds an extra trimmer which make setting them up a lot quicker. I’m hoping to have some of these ready for sale in the next couple of months. You can read [...]
Zira is now available to buy, it comes fully assembled and in a perspex case, you just need to supply MIDI, power (9V-12V DC @300mA) and plug it into your mixer. Think of Zira as a pocket sized monowave. Zira has the following features (full Spec can be found here); Two oscillators, each with 48 [...]
It’s been an interesting couple of weeks. I built a second Zira to test the remainder of the chips I have and start sending units to beta testers. But the one I built wouldn’t work, it lit up, you could edit values, save patches, load patches but would not respond to MIDI! I checked the [...]
A few people have asked about some elements of how to build their GorF kits, so I’ve revamped the tron build guide to make a little more generic and updated the links. The new build guide can be found here and whilst it’s still about how to build a Tron the important parts (order to [...]
Well, I’ve got the LFO routing in now, just the LFO delay to sort and some debugging. I’ve also managed to get the two missing tracks into the Zira Demo, so it’s now complete. The missing tracks were the “ppg vocal” and the “wobbly bell”, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did [...]
I’ve started recording a demo of Zira whilst I work on it. There’s still a couple of things left to add to Zira (LFO, Patch storage and MIDI CC’s) but it’s coming together. As a bit of a tease I’ve extracted two tracks from the demo, one is an analogue arpeggio and the other is [...]
Well, the new board is here, and I’ve assembled it and you can see it above. I’ve already started coding and it’s a LOT quieter than the previous one, there’s no horrible buzzing on the audio from the display! In addition, we have sockets for all the connections, as shown below. From Left to Right, [...]
