Another defective Minibrute
« on: November 18, 2012, 12:32:24 pm »
Received my Minibrute from Thomann.de. The "Pitch" knob in the LFO section does not work. It does not affect the sound in any way. It's going back!

Thanks for the feedback,
I will contact them to figure out what is this issue.

Well, I've got a replacement sent from Thomann...

There were about a dozen small rectangular pieces of metal rattling with the remains of some glue rattling around inside the plastic bag with the keyboard - any ideas on what these could be?

EDIT - I've worked it out. 14 of the 15 key weights had fallen off the device before it got to me... that's two defective units in a row now Arturia!

The small metal rectangular plates are actually the keyboard weights. Mine arrived a couple of days ago with 2 of these weights which came loose. I stuck it back on with glue as advised by the uk distributor. We are not the only ones with this problem see the thread...

Thanks. I'll probably just stick 'em right on again. My only concern is that if any more components inside the unit are held together with this 'glue'...

I haven't had the issue of the key weights falling off, but would like to be preventative and reinforce them before it's too late and they start falling off. 

Will warranty be voided if I open the unit and reinforce the glue job of the key weights?
