I recall someone mentioned Bloodyminded moved to use Korg monotron? Its way cheaper (new ones 40usd?) and even more portable = suitable for live gigs. And the sounds, even if ridiculously small and cheap, does its job.

both used as a noise generator and as a filter.

I acquired the standard Monotron last year. It was fun, not put it to any practical use thus far but for the size and price it is a nice little bit of kit. Granted, I can see where the "toy" comments come from, but as a sound generator it's alright. More recently, I bought one of the Delay models for £35 new and can see a lot more potential - again, it has the toy-ness to it but when coupled with the old version I've found it to perform well so far and can certainly see it factoring into a recording setup. I think with both (and I'd imagine it the same with the Duo version) you've got to view them with realistic expectations as they are what they are.

The Minibrute synth looks pretty good. May have to think about that later in the year.

I remember seeing some photos of Bloodyminded using the Monotron's on stage & it looks like they were checking their cellphones/textmsgs. I think I'd rather see
someone using a laptop.

Bloodyminded made a name out of it, "twin 202 power-electronic death-noise", using 2 or 3 on stage.....

Monotron's on stage does look weird, that for sure. You can get good sounds out of them though, especially the delay version.

I had the chance to play a little bit with the Minibrute the other week and there's no way I am not getting one. The build is a bit cheap, but still a lot better than I'd expected, and the sound is just NASTY. Pure filth straight out of the box, and with fx it will destroy!

Cheap build, how exactly? I'm going to keep it in mind; read reviews after it gets into some hands. Looks like something I could use. WOuld love to have the same thing but without the keys...

Seriously overpriced IMO. You pay more for that than a CS15 and get less for your money. Considerably less! Price wise it's up there with the MS10. If you haven't bought one already I advise against it.

I agree on the pricing. I predict the second hand market for SH-101 will fall drastically when the MiniBrute is out. More or less same features. That being said space and weight-wise the 101 is in a entirely different league than the CS-15, also I haven't ever tried out a CS-15 but CS-05/10 seems to have kinda a low output at least compared to our other synths. Not a prop with effects or a good preamp, but for an example balancing it together with a louder synth such as MS-10 thru a twin channel echo unit is a real pain in the ass(Then again get another Echo I guess!)

The CS15 is a big unit to carry around. Unrealistic unless you have your own transport. The signal is weak and that's what distortion pedals are for. Why anyone would use any synth without distortion is beyond me. Difference in output levels? Why is that a problem? Surely that's what mixers are for?

So give us some info on the Bass Station.

or, ms-10 and yamaha to mixer, echo-unit on the fx send/return of mixer.

i'm saving for this :

portable, analog, fully modular.

We never used distortion, neither for Fuzzards or FA, for me the whole charm is the raw analog nature of the sound. Not some pedal compressed muddy signal. For the aforementioned setup we tried to go without mixer, but we found a way around it.

Bass Station is great, maybe not for emulating 303, but very useful for PE, like I said earlier, the WASP filter, good OSC's flimsy and with a couple of those horrible double feature buttons. Big enough not to look like a complete joke(like the Monotrons) and 7 patch memory's, useful for storing different settings for multiple track type live set.
