VacoLoco in Sound on Sound

Posted by Paul in General, GorF, Zira on September 19th, 2013 |  Comments Off

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 own VacoLoco. Built in small numbers, Zira is a wavetable oscillator synth with an analogue filter and patch memories, whilst GorF is a cute eight-step sequencer”

Here’s something you don’t see everyday, 3 x Monowave altogether.

Monowaves three

What also makes this special is that there is the original Prototype (bottom), a beta unit (1 of 5) and a production (1 of 25) unit al together.

Well, we’re almost packed and ready for this years Synth-DIY-UK event. We’ll be there with Zira to show and for people to have a play with and also with GorF to show and play with. I’m packing a few bits of stock should anyone wish to purchase a GorF or Zira whilst they’re there.

We will of course be showing the latest version of GorF-XL in Euro-rack format, with all the great new features of the latest software (sigificantly improved from last years debut)

We’re also bringing Tron and the latest version of JuJu so people can have a play and get a feel for what’s going on withour upcoming projects.

We’ll be blogging pictures as we go, via pinterest ( and on twitter ( or @VacoLocoSynth) we’ll be using the #SDIYUK hastag.

So why not come along on the 27th and enjoy a great day with synth geeks and experience the cutting edge of synth design, and maybe a few beers too!

Zira (our analogue digital hybrid monosynth) is selling well, we still have some left. Don’t forget this is a limited run of 64, with a third gone already that doesn’t leave long.

We’ve got two multi-tracked demo’s currently, “See You” by Depeche Mode -

And just for fun, the theme tune to the TV Series, Sledge Hammer -

Zira and JuJu Demo

Posted by Paul in JuJu, Zira on July 6th, 2013 |  Comments Off

I’ve created a quick Zira and JuJu demo on soundcloud -

It’s the theme from SledgeHammer, written by Danny Elfman. Zira is doing all the synth duties (multi-tracked) and JuJu is on drums.

Don’t forget you can buy Zira whilst stocks last direct from our webstore
