During my lunch break I popped into the local music shop and took the Arturia MiniBrute for a test-drive. I've always wanted an analog synth in my setup, mostly for the hands-on experience and "warm" sound, but never felt comfortable paying a couple thousand for something I might toss on the shelf (or become bored with) in a month. Having said that, I was really into the MiniBrute, and the price point is definitely nice. Within minutes I was able to familiarize myself with it and was creating some rather heavy noises. I wanted to poll the forum for feedback and see if anyone owns it and furthermore, if they'd be willing to share their thoughts on it. For example: are you still using it or did it quickly become stale after a few uses, pros and cons, etc. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
