That photo is a fake...it has way too many keys for a modern analog :keys1:
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

No way man, that photo's legit...
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

Are you being sarcastic or serious? I mean, at first glance, it seems entirely possible. But the fact that they named it "Poly Brute" is almost too obvious for this product to be real. Isn't that what everyone has been saying it should be called?

I would be completely on board with this, but yeah, this is a cheapo Photoshop mockup. Unless there's some other context I'm missing, this doesn't prove anything.

I counted 8 sliders. Is that too few?

Surely Arturia would "leak" a bad photoshop mockup on imgur rather than post the epic news on their own website.

Cool, so it's got the sequencer from the microbrute. I wonder if that'll be able to be added to the original via a firmware update? Looks like the hardware's the same.

Aw s**t, I was planning on waiting for a good deal on a used Minibrute, but with the sequencer thrown in I might just have to spring for the SE...

Quite disappointed - obviously they're not up to making a Poly :)

Still think the micro+miniBrute combination aces that ...
