And don't forget that almost no classic analog monosynths have aftertouch. I can't think of any 1 oscillator synth that does, and even among all of the 2 VCO synths that I have the Multimoog is the only one.

my trusty old arp pro-soloist does - maybe the only one ?

I knew as I was typing my last post that people would start listing the synths that I forgot... ;-)

I think that the addition of a second oscillator (or more) and a three octave keyboard (which, in addition to the extra range, would have allowed for more panel room with less knob crowding) would have made this synth more enticing. Many would pay more for these features.

With all the features it has and at $500 it certainly makes you start to look around the studio for "loose change in the couch", wondering which piece(s) of unused gear can go to make way for a Minibrute.

I'll hold out for a used one next fall for ~$375.

Didn't the micromoog also have this feature? Come to think of it, while we've been sitting here comparing this to the SH-101, the micromoog actually has more similarities.

Not for me it wouldn't. It is what it is.

Nope no after touch on the micro moog

With a kenton pro-solo, you can link the aftertouch of your midi controller to the filter or the pitch of your ยต-moog.

I think it has much more in common with the Yamaha CS10 than anything else that's been suggested. I use a Cs15 regularly and it sounds similar, presumably because of the filter.

That would be the Arturia MaxiBrute ;) Yeah, I hope such a synth will see the day

That was a great video, thank you for sharing. I wonder if that will make some of the people claiming it is only good for harsh sounds quiet. So glad I have mine pre-ordered :)
