Well expected more , this is very ...dissapointing and feels like regressing really ??? Why would you do something simpler then simple ?

Unless it's for 199$ tops then it's another story :)

It could be just a mockup someone made in photoshop. Wouldn't trust anything until Arturia comes out with real pictures. This could be just trolling that somehow got picked up as "the real deal".

I will be buying this specially if it works as a midi/cv converter.

Agree i don't think all these comments from famous musicians ( wow, ...and now arturia bringing this !... etc..) would make sense , it's a fun thing if they really will do it but it's not a mind blower come on :)

Well, as others have commented, the quotes from the musicians on Arturia's website pretty much made it clear that the new instrument was something small and compact. Nothing in the teaser suggested a bigger version of the MB, much less a polysynth. What else could "looks tiny, sounds massive" mean?

Plus, I think they're aiming to draw in musicians who had been using soft-synths exclusively, by saying, "look, it's small and easy to carry around; why not use this to create sounds instead of your laptop?" The comment from Sandra Vu certainly suggests that.

I found this woodbrass. It has more details, specifications and better images. It seems real and for me, it all makes sense.

I'm hot about this :twisted:

Hmm. Looking at the larger pictures, it looks like there's some significant missing features compared to the Minibrute - particularly the separate filter envelope and independent envelope/LFO amounts for ultrasaw/PWM/metalizer. Maybe I'll just wait for a good deal on a Minibrute when someone decides to trade down to one of these.

Me too! It looks like it from the pictures if they are real.

Hmmm... That's a better look at the mod matrix already.

So gate in / out, as well as pitch out on the back; then Env and LFO out on the matrix, and Metal, Saw, Sub, Pitch, Filter and PWM inputs on the matrix. I wonder if Saw / Sub is just a level? And why no input for overall VCA gain? Also strange to have some CV in/outs on the back and some on top...

The sequencer looks cool. If this works like the SH101 sequencer I'm sold even only for that, especially if it's present at the CV outputs.

Why, oh why no sustain pedal input though? And no DIN midi out... :(

Good to see they've listened to the public and done something about the minibrute's unwieldy size.
