anyone else be interested in an Arturia Minibrute module?

Postby chimney chop » Sun Jan 27, 2013 1:04 am

as has been repeated over and over the keyboard itself is too short a lot of people.

if i bought one i'd control it via a larger MIDI keyboard anyway.


the keyboard is too short but used as a module it's too large.

though it's unlikely Arturia would do this would anyone else prefer a module version?


i'd snatch up one of those immediately.

Think any 2 octave keyboard lends itself to a rack version.
If you end up controlloing it with another keyboard, what purpose does its keys serve?

I think I might if it were in the sub $500-range.

btw, you know there's another group with the name boxcutter? i think it's one guy but he does dubstep.

If it were $300 or less, maybe.

I'm actually starting to think this forum might have a bigger say to large companies than previously thought... BTW

no, I think its size is fine. its a mono synth, and theres octave buttons...why have a full sized board for something that can only play one note at a time? I mean, I see that on other monosynths yes, but I think its silly, and wasteful.

I dont even use my minibrute for sounds, however it makes a perfect controller keyboard for my modular setup.

I play a lot of stuff over three ovctaves. Just because it has one note doesn't mean anything.

32 keys is the least i feel comfortable with on a monosynth.

Yeah, that would be sweet to have a module of the Minibrute. The reason I opted for the MicroQ rack rather than the keyed version is because I'd end up controlling it with a larger keyboard anyway; 3 octaves + a key felt limiting to me.

A rackmount Minibrute would be a killer sidekick with a JP-8080, if styled the same way (full knobs & sliders)! I'd buy it without thinking.

I'd buy one.

However, judging by the current availablility (in the UK anyway) of the keyboard version, I'll be a catatonic drooling ruin in a rest home before the module/rack version hits the shops.

I kind of like short keyboards on monosynths.
I think a module version would be cool. But it would have to be rackmount and I imagine they would turn those sliders in to knobs or just get rid of some of them and leave it up to midi to control the less popular params.
