It's effen HUGE, and offers MIDI In, Out and Out-There, has a multimode bullshit filter, 3 jealousy modulators, allows one to route any Source insult to a variety of 'Meh...' Destinations. This pedestal, however, cannot be purchased or leased - it can only be earned through repeated years of experience using rare and wonderful synthesizers. And instead of electricity, it runs on USB 1 (Us Be One), powered by positive online-community actions.

Heard from the store today, they said good news and bad news. It won't be arriving until 10th July :(

The good news was that he'd been to a testing session with a guy from Arturia, and it delivered the goods and then some, totally worth the wait.

I've had my Minibrute for months, what's all this talk of delays? Do most people not have theirs yet?

It sounds great, really enjoying it, btw.

so 10th July is for sure? no more delays?

my local store has pushed it back to 9th July and this is a third delay by like a full months apart

Yep. For sure. There will be no more unexpected delays. They are also guaranteeing that nobody in the factory will ever make another mistake as long as they live, and none of their customers' grandma's will ever be in a car accident.

It's too late.
I've been knocked off of my tiny little pedestal.

People in Chicago might want to check this out:
This Tuesday in Chicago / Lakeview, come and see&hear MiniBrute and Spark at MidWest Stereo from 5pm to 7pm.
Also, an Arturia US rep just updated:
The first batch of units from the factory is actually set to clear US customs in Seattle this week.
Long-time pre-ordered units should start showing up at some US dealers next week, so there will be a whole group of customers who will receive their pre-order during the last week of June.

Hm yeah it figures that we in Europe have to wait longer when it has to clear US customs. No idea why US Customs would hold them back, though. Just send it already!

Was passing my preorder store on Saturday. So popped in to get the latest estimated delay - and they said last week of June too. So maybe it might just happen...
