Awesome synth for the price point!!
MiniBrute,…hmm I am thinking there is another to follow in a series? Is there no SW GUI to save the preset?
I like the hands on real sythn interface.
Overall it looks killer
Could be another coming? lol, no way to save presets on this synth, straight no presets at all
I love this machine, just from listening to it on the Arturia website.
As the pioneer of audio-MIDI feedback (see my endorsment by Sonuus for such uses of the i2M and G2M), over a year ago I commented that the next generation of synths should include audio-MIDI feedback built it.
Well, Arturia didn’t quite do that, but they did build in a controllable feedback loop from the headphone out back to the input. It doesn’t sound as intense and wildly chaotic as my single and dual audio-MIDI feedback loops, but it is on the machine, and pretty growly.
I have visions of combining the onboard feedback with the audio-MIDI feedback for some hope-they-will-be stunning effects. Stay tuned. I am told that deliveries will start reaching customers in late January through the end of February.
Listen for the results on:
or hear some existing feedback tracks on that site now.
This synth is amazing man, really awesome!
@soundandgear: Right! Can’t save pesets but since everything is out in the open, the guys at Arturia say…take a photo of it! I like that, too, as it is a gritty concept. Gets me back to my early days with an Andromeda A6, although it could save a preset.
Still, I *want* this synth. In a sea of analog modeling and straight digital synths where the guts to build a patch need a manual (most synths from Korg, Roland, & Yamaha), this machine is indeed a brute. I want to twist its tail and hear it roar!
yeah man, exactly man, it even comes with synth overlays so you can draw on them for your presets, plus a bunch of overlays to throw over the synth and match the knobs, those are your presets, you have to turn the knobs to get them lol, sick!
Is Waldorf there with there Analog Synth? The Pulse 2.
Wondering how it sounds.
Interesting that Arturia & Waldorf both cam out with a small Analog synth at the same exact time.
they have one but it’s not hooked up yet, just a prototype
Bummer. Thanks for the update,
