This is fantastic. If it ran on batteries ala SH-101 it would be perfect. Defo at the top of my want list.

Agreed. I am a sucker for battery powered gear, yeah, usually I just use the wall wart buts its great that I can just slap it on my lap with some headphones and Im good to go.

It's called the Minibrute because there's going to be a polyphonic BigBrute version and it's gonna cost less than a grand.

It must be true because I just said it.

Judging only from the interview on the amazona.de page posted earlier, that's exactly what it is...


Thanks I was a little perplexed by the thought of a "super saw " Type wave on a Single OSC analog mono .
This guy Yves must be a complete crazy ( in a good way ) boffin to have not been snagged up by a bigger dev before now .

this is like the devil-child of an SH-101, SH-3 and synthacon

a distinctive new analog synth with lots of useful stuff in there - and a Synthacon filter approved by The Man himself. Not bad!!!

Arturia looks to have done right. At this price , it wouldn't be a surprise if this one little synth could very well outsell all of DSI and Moog's monos put together.

this is really interesting. A software company making an analog monosynth? says a lot about where the market for hardware synths is going.

Got to say . I thought it looked decent , but being One OSC was putting it in the rear for me .
After Watching these videos Hearing the UltraSaw , PWM , and sub in conjunction with it's simultaneous waveform structure I think every thing I would need a 2nd OSC for this can can do ...so if it seams to have a decent build then it wins hands down !

DSI started their analog revival with one monosynth.

There are a lot more analog synths to come ..

SOLD!

I have been waiting for a long time for some company to provide this instrument: DSI came close with the MoPho Keyboard, as did Doepfer with the Dark Energy. Here, now, Arturia has done it! This MiniBrute is a 21st Century SH-101 or CS-01 with the added updated innovations such as the "Metallizer" and "Brute Factor" as well as a Sub Osc and LFO that offers more than the standard options.

I would have liked a 2 1/2 octave keyboard (or three octaves of minikeys), but with after touch and a solid handsome chasis and hyper-connectivity all for $499, I'm . . .

SOLD!

:)

I just discovered about this a couple hours back and it is on my wish list, I knew Arturia could come up with a good portable analog synthesizer. It has a great look and from what I've heard it has a great sound and Passion Pit have actually bought this little guy and they decided to redo some of the tracks they were working on with the MiniBrute, I haven't been able to experience such a great analog synth (the closest I've got is the Microkorg) and I'm happy to know that there is a cheap one out there.

I can appreciate the attraction of knowing a piece of gear has an analogue signal path, and this synth certainly looks good in terms of design and spec.
But for me when it comes to synths like this, it's the core sound that counts.

From the few short videos that have come out so far, I haven't heard enough to make a judgement on it.
I want to hear someone push it a bit, like this:

Watch on youtube.com


Then I'll know if I like it or not.

This is a brand new 2012 release people aren't gonna be able to push it a bit. Many people are just buying the MiniBrute or just discovering it, like me. So probably in the next few months we'll get to see people use this more often.
So no there is no REAL judgement for it but it matters if you want to take the risk, I am willing to do so because it has a very analog sound to it and I can't afford vintage gear and for me it feels like it'll fill up that hole for me.
