A dude on muff mailed Arturia and got a confirmed shipping date of late March/early April.

This post is lacking in the sense that "phat" is nowhere in evidence.

I still can't believe it is from Arturia. What's next? An 8 voice discrete VCO synth with poly aftertouch from Casio? :shock:

I will probably buy one. The saw animation and wave folding effect are very tempting.

Plenty of our most beloved synths are two pole!
What I was getting at is when the Mopho was bashed for not having a multimode. I myself rather like a 2 pole to be honest, the SEM is one of my favourite synths of all time :) Just makes me smirk at the slack Arturia are getting that maybe a regular synth maker may have had a bit gripe aimed towards them in the last couple of years. Or maybe the forums are growing up :lol:

It is possibly one of the only synths for a number of years that makes me want to go and buy it straight away.

I agree. I want to buy one just on the basis of the demo videos.

A multimode filter should now be the norm for any serious synth module. But owning a SEM myself makes me wonder about the necessity of getting a MiniBrute; Morphing a 2 pole LPF + notch or notch + HPF is even better than having just a regular multimode.
Otherwise, I'd prefer a dual multimode filter or a multimode followed by a resonant bpf just like the SH-5.

Anyway, having a sh-101 + a SEM makes leaves little GAS for buyeing a Minibrute. :)

Yeah, it's perverse how intent most synth manufacturers are in re-hashing the same goddam filter that's been floating around for the last 40 years or so. I can definitely see overlap with the SEM here, but the wave options definitely add something to the mix.

I'm bloody overwhelmed by both the Minitaur and the Minibrute. 2012 is a great year so far!

Watching the namm videos etc I notice a lack of any sort of gui or web based editor. Is that correct ? Everything must be controlled via the synth itself ?

How retro is that ? :ugeek:

What better interface can you have than to actually turn the knobs on the synth itself ?

It's not that retro an idea, unless you are aged under 18 and don't remember a time before the interweb ;)

i think its fantastic, Arturia couldnt have hit the market with that at a better time

I think these days we have too many options for editing and presets, I know I fall into the trap of just cycling through presets on stuff

This is simply a must have. If i don't have the money saved up by the time of release, the Ultranova will have to be sacrificed.
