I've contacted the seller I got it from and am organising a replacement Minibrute. I'm thinking maybe it was just an inferior batch of the product and not a common thing happening with all Minibrutes ? I've noticed that within the space of the same few months people have complained of the same things?
Lets hope the second attempt works! If not then it'll be a full refund and will never deal with Arturia again.
Yes, I agree, superglue is one of the greatest things Man has ever devised, but having to perform repairs on a new piece of kit that costs in excess of Ģ400.00 is not right! They should STOP building these in China and spend more money on making it built like a tank. The body work is VERY solid and the keyboard is too, but obviously it could be better. The keybed and bumpers should be made of metal!
