I can give you another way to use the Minibrute as a master keyboard without local on/off : Instead of turning down the main volume, unplug the cable that goes from your Brute to your Soundcard/mixer/whatever, and plug it straight into your ass. Now the minibrute is a perfect master keyboard, just as you wanted it.
But wouldn't that sound sh*t?
OK, Bruno, this is my last post too on this matter.
I guess I will just have to wait for more people to recieve their MInibrutes and try to use them with their DAW before the 'designers' add a midi local on/off mode.
Please note, that all through my posts I have never said anything negative about the sound of the Minibrute or infact anything but positive comments on Arturia taking this brave step into analog.
I have contacted the sales dept at Arturia and we will see what happens, but as I also said, I don't want to have to return it.The Minibrute really does have a unique sonic character.
