Maybe the problem is that you made a purchase based on what you hoped it could do in the future and not what it currently does now?
My Minibrute works today as it did the day I bought it - exactly as advertised.
being mad about a missing feature (well not even feature...more like a MIDI standard) does not mean one can't enjoy the other elements of it...
but anyway your argument is flawed. here is something that is under "Details" for arturia minibrute on the official site:
"MIDI In/Out : Sequence MiniBrute from your computerís MIDI interface and DAW, or any other MIDI-Out enabled gear you have. Alternatively use MiniBrute as a master keyboard for your DAW or other MIDI-enabled equipment."
I don't know about you, but if you are going to call something a "master keyboard" then that implies
local off...at least anyone who uses synths in an integrated setup would think so. MIDI Out is not fully implemented yet because of this, and it's a shame because it could be the perfect live companion if it had local off.
