VAVDO - blog news

Mac OS X drivers Update

It has been a while since the last time we contacted you,but now we do because we have great news for you. We just released vavdo adopt software version 4 for mac OS X 10.8 to 10.10 . It’s a major release because we have built a new stable driver to run the vavdo. We dealt with all the problems that the previous version might have, on the newer OS X versions. We also want you to know that we don’t have any news about the new production batch of new controllers. Until we do you can check out on eBay. We saw some vavdos on great condition!

New Price for Vavdo A2

We are happy to announce a major Vavdo A2 price drop!

We have decided to cut out distributors and retailers and sell the Vavdo A2 only through our webstore. This gives us the advantage of selling it much cheaper, at almost 35% off its previous price, which is normally a percentage that is “lost” between distributors and retailers.

For those who bought the Vavdo A2 at its initial price, don’t be mad, you will get a free registration for our upcoming software release. We will make it up to you.

SynthR for NI Reaktor

Synth R is a synthesizer made with NI Reaktor. It has two multi-waveform oscillators that produce interesting beats of timbre, amplitude, pitch & spatial position. The controls are mapped through OSC to Vavdo A’s knobs & buttons.

Getting to know each other!

It's been a few months since we started up the vavdo concept. All those months we received many messages from all over the world that strengthen us and kept us going. There are so many things that connects us with you, that we decided to give some interviews to get to know us better. The first one is in english and the other two are in greek, so the international audience will need a translator!
