La Golden Acapulco Dub Siren is a dub siren style analogue synthesizer with variable pitch and rate, as well as three different wave forms. You can play the siren in three different modes, changing your set into a veridical sonidero or an old school soundsystem.
This machine also contains a monophonic sampler with 12 samples, divided in 3 banks of 4 sound effects each. It works with a SD card (included) with sound effects, but you can add your own files too!
How can I use the La Golden Acapulco dub siren?

A touch of history…
In Jamaica, dub music and sound systems were born from reggae culture. Dub is a music genre related to the mix of drum and bass sounds, samples, to create hypnotic dance music. King Tubby, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and the Scientist are known as pioneers of the genre. The soundsystems are reggae parties with speakers, towers and subwoofers, and an ultrabass sound to feel the vibe with the entire body and soul.
In Mexico, this culture has another history. Sonideros are valued personalities in popular music, bringing the sound and the dance to the street. The sonidero’s people carry their speakers, turntables and improved effects to home parties, family ceremonies, neighborhood carnivals and other places to play tropical sounds.
Both cultures have a sampler as a basic tool. They can play a siren, a train horn, or maybe a scream, or just the scratch sound in a turntable, different tricks for each person. You can also add your own effects in this machine!
Tell me about the design, I want to know more!
La Golden Acapulco is a famous plant mentioned in Los Detectives Salvajes, the classic novel by Roberto Bolaño, who together with Mario Santiago Papasquiaro are a poetic influence, with Mexico City as a center of inspiration.
These ideas are illustrated by Pablo Delcielo, the artist who drew the chassis of this cool box. You can find some plants, imaginary friends, Jamaican colors, psychedelic stuff and other vibrant graphic ideas decorating the La Golden Acapulco Dub Siren. This case was hand printed by Los Laberintos, a three color work specially made in Mexico City.
