Ok, I just have a few problems..maybe some of you do as well!
I bought the BSP because it seems to be what a lot of beat makers who are looking to get OTB, are looking for..except it's not. I have a Moog Sub 37, Minitaur, and a borrowed Model d as far as CV gear goes. I'm thinking great, I can use CV..but no the BSP does not attenuate voltage (like it should if it's going to make a broad statement in the first paragraph). I could use midi on two of these, but the BSP only has 1 midi out. Really only one midi out? You can't configure the DIN out port to be a secondary midi out..no? So I have to use a 3.5mm splitter jack, hmm..not really feeling the " control anything midi, CV, etc vibe now. I also see that now if someone buys a BSP they get a grip of CV cables. That's pretty cool, even though mine was bought a couple months ago..so Arturia is telling me to get bent? Ok if that's your business model, but I would have sent a email to my customers and said hey..we appreciate you buying the BSP, we're going to send you some cables..cool.
I have a better idea. Since you know that Moogs don't work on the BSP unless you had maybe cables from Arturia that were attenuated to work on Moogs voltage scale ( Moog is not a really well known company are they?) that would go a long way to backup your statement you (Arturia) made in the first paragraph. Oh, and maybe make the DIN port able to be used as a second midi out..or maybe the midi in as a output in the software options.
I don't mean to rant, and I really do like Arturia gear. Maybe change a few things in the BSP, or the wording in you product description..because right now the model d is not working at all, I can't figure it out yet but it can't be the BSP right? Hmm?
