I sold off all my music gear due to money issues. I thought since I have decent software why not utilize what I have. This thing looked perfect. French, might I say it's going to be awesome quality. With much due respect I don't think I can tell you how much I miss my hardware gear, plus the issue I had with my minibrute. The minilab being my 2nd owned arturia product and also having an issue bugs me more. Being stuck with this and not being able to play just sucks. Kills my mood to make anything. All I think now is, "Why midi, whyyy!".
