Me too. That orange grey combo is rad. But then i'm one of the weirdos that loves the bright a*s yellow mopho. I'm going to get a minibrute when it comes out and do some wild paint job on mine.

Hmmm... AG made a video on its arpeggiator.

I demonstrate the arpeggiator in the first minute of my video:

God damn, the Minibrute has a built-in ARP 2600? No wonder it takes forever to ship.

Next up, the Minibrute XL. 88 keys fully weighted piano action monosynth! Now with integrated Dubstep button and 1076 sampled presets!

Seriously though chimney, that kind of synth will cost twice the minibrute's price. Which is kind of the MB's main point.

I was a little disappointed to see that AG had caved in to the pressure if I'm honest. I was expecting at most a short video of him pinching one out on top of the arpeggiator section; anything more is just pandering to the rabble. That said, I did like the occasional piercing look of disapproval. :)

Well, he said he only had the thing for 3 days, and recorded all the videos, just didn't post them all. Just a matter of uploading to youtube, really. He didn't cave in and record an ARP video just to shut up the clamoring, raving zombie masses. OR DID HE?

Until I see the birth certificate I don't believe a goddamned thing - well, other than wild, baseless conjecture obv.
