If it sounds half as good as it looks it will be amazing!

I'd rather have it as a sound module with no keys - maybe they will do 2 versions - can't see much point in 25 keys myself

That came out of the blue! Very interesting. My CC is ready. But, there is no info about this anywhere so far, except this thread? Is this a new NAMM announcement?

The (brief) specification state one oscillator, is that right? Which would be a shame. Is there hard sync available?

I don't think it looks very good at all. Looks more like a 2 octave MIDI controller than a synth. I don't like the way any Arturia hardware looks for some reason. Just doesn't float my boat. Interested to hear/see more of it though. NAMM 2012 presumably?

So far it looks like the knobs are spaced a bit too close. Might be a tight squeeze trying to quickly grab a knob. But I love the sliders. Much prefer those for envelopes than knobs.

I'm sure it will devide opinion- good for Arturia for doing something that looks different! I think it looks retro- Moog Rogue or CAT, I suspect (if it is 1 Osc) that it may be designed for dirty, rasping bass lines? No Bass Synth for ages then 2 at once? (Moog doesnt have a keyboard).

Holy Crap - someone mentioned CAT! Been wondering about that. Used to work with one of their engineers (before that, he was a roady/coffee-getter/lifter-of-stuff for Bob Moog.

The CAT's were like Odesseys that had Moog knobs and Arp sliders that didn't bust off. I think they were even sued by Arp. Fatter, grittier sound if I'm not mistaken.

(sorry to hijack).

Arturia - maybe they'll do a keyboardless version a-la Mopho, Blofeld, etc. But does look interesting...

It's certain that it will be analogue?

(Forgot about that one. Maybe CAT will re-group, make a bigger synth, and call it The Cougar.)

Specs say VCO, which implies it (if that's the case I'd imagine the filter would be).

Is it intended to be a bass synth specifically? Or are we guessing?

Wow! The design is beyond horrible imo (judging from the small picture)! But a Steiner-Parker filter? :-o
That's really cool!
A version without the keys would be really nice! And the name MINIbrute implies that a bigger version may be planned.

Cheers
