This looks fantastic. I like that there are 3 LFO's particularly.

I recently got the Microbrute and I am very happy with it. Can get some great sounds of that little thing. The matrix board adds a lot more potential to get some strange sounds out of it, too.

It's a great sounding synth, I was using mine last night. Has a very pure sound, warm and bright, which for a lot of uses could benefit from added effects but certainly has initial energy for Power Electronic uses. I haven't used the sequencer much but from what I can see it's amazingly easy and effective.

These things look particularly interesting/useful.
The site also sells mic cable and piezo elements...

Cheap as hell too for what you get.

Apologies if this has been said already, but I find the Korg Volca keys to be pretty bloody versatile. You need to run it through distortion or overdrive to get any kind of volume out of it for a live setting (or just whack up the gain on your mixer) but there's a good mix of sounds and settings so you'll never be short of different sounds to use. Same goes for the Volca beats for a drum machine. I only use it very sparsely, a couple of kicks per bar to give the set a bit of momentum but there's lots more you can do with it.

Arturia Micro Brute is great too. I've found it to be a little temperamental at times and it's real shortcoming is that it's monophonic, but there's a great range of sounds you can get out of it, especially nice thick low and mid frequencies.

Agreed with what you say about the Volca Keys. Good bang for the buck so to say. Haven't tried the Beats yet.

PRO TIP: get a decent mono 1/8" to XLR cable to connect your volcas to your mixer, and be able to actually hear the things

Hadn't considered that, I'll definitely give that a go. Thanks!

Haven't tried the Beats yet.

Unless you want to make dance type music I wouldn't bother. Probably the most limited of the series for PE/Industrial purposes. Just one drum sound, very very weak. Presumably you could put it through effects but I don't think it'd improve it. I didn't even bother after a few tries, going to sell mine.

Has anyone had any luck using the Volca sampler with a computer? You need to download a programme from Korg to synch with the unit to get samples onto it. I'm told it's possible.

arp desktop module

Looks interesting. From what I've read online it is possible to process audio via this unit.

I find myself liking tabletop synth's more and more. The short time I spent with the ARP Odyssey at my local synth store left me a bit frustrated with it when it comes to producing harsh sounds. I found it less obvious to handle than say some Korg stuff (MS20 obviously, or Mono/Mini-logues), or even Moogs. I just got myself a Minitaur and it sounds great. I already used it live to drill the audience's ears at our last gig and I can also get killer bass sounds that allow me to pretend I'm Klaus Schulze once I control it with an arpeggiator. Can't complain. But I do plan to get an Arp Odyssey at some point.

arpeggiator.

What kind do you use? Software, table top device or synth? I am looking for this kind of software for mac. Recommendations are welcome.

For grit, violence and punch to your sound I would look at Metasonix modules or pedals. The recent F1 and F2 efx comes highly recommended.
