Heh, was just gonna post the same, but carrying a time machine around to gigs being able to return to 23th of May would seem like a hassle

I've been strongly considering getting a Minibrute so this is very cool. But damn, those promotional videos that companies make are always the worst. Those don't sell product. Just pay some synth nerd to do an in-depth video review on youtube and that will move more units.

In the meantime no Volca keys are arriving to Italy... they keep postponing... last week the other two models arrived in Town in small quantity and customers arrived at local korg shop from 100 km away...
I think korg will make shitload of money with this.

I think I read the release for the Micro-Brute is next week*. If it's considerably less expensive than the Mini, I may look into it.

Demo videos never, ever help me. I just end up looking at a close-up photo & try to figure out if everything I'd use is featured..

*Actually, the Micro will be announced on the 25th of October: http://www.musicradar.com/news/tech/arturia-teases-new-analogue-synth-microbrute-images-leaked-586471

Specs, etc.:

I often watch this chaps reviews, pretty thorough. Often hard to gauge the usefulness of gear for "noisier" purposes but am seriously tempted by this already. Fell in love with the Minibrute but had to can the idea in the end, but this one looks like it could be the alternative I need!

The Micro  is only missing white noise! Damn it. The price is right but just missing that one little function that isn't a huge deal but it'd be nice if something small, with a good price, could have EVERYTHING I 'need'.

Has anyone used the Novation Bass Station II & the Mini-Brute? Price & specs seems about the same but was wondering if one edges out the other.

Didn't notice if the Micro has an input? If so, then I could run my white noise generator into it. That'd solve that little issue. Still, white & pink noise knobs would be cool.

The video in the review I linked to does a tour of the rear-panel and yes, there is an audio input on the back. It hadn't dawned on me that it was missing its own white noise but it's not a deal-breaker, as you say it can certainly be worked around.

I haven't played either of them but what I remember from the little bit of research I did:

  - Bass Station 2 has two oscillators and ability to save patches

  - Minibrute has one oscillator and no patch-saving, but is true pure analog. Also has a tap-tempo feature on the arpeggiator. Can be found for about $50-100 less than the Bass Station 2

got last week:

volfram from Russia, semi-modular, that can be linked through banana cables to other devices...
I have not played much with it yet, but it has impressive throbbing pulses...

¨http://samoletuvvp.narod.ru/vto/diy/vol.html

I need to spend a bit more time with it, but I like it a lot and has a sounds of his own...

and today I got my MS20 mini... I have been using the original one from a friend and despite the smaller jacks (that makes it easier to connect to my modular synthem...)  and the lack of classic background crackling it is 1:1 like the old....

Looks like a lot of people use those DIY synths from Russia. Web page says that 47 were made, but I saw or heard about 10 at least.

A friend in Oslo/Norway is selling his Minibrute. 4000,- Norwegian Kroner. Used twice. He is happy about the synth, but says it is too close in range to the others he owns. Sturdy guy. Can put you in contact if interested. He says that it is possible to heckle on the price.

Here is a picture:



My friend is heckling w himself. HE! He offers it now for around 3000,- NOK.
