Omg. SE is so ugly. It looks like a DIY project. I know that is petty but there is a new breed of consumer out there for the Brutes. They dont care what synths looked like in 1972, they want something cool like the dark looks and rubbery knob goodness of the orig minibrute. All black was awesome. The bass station2 is so ugly i was putting up with waiting for my replacement mini brute now for three months rather than exchanging for the BS2 - even though BS2 has preset ability!
Of course once the micro came out with a better sequencer you knew the mini was lacking then!
My minibrute's arp was my problem. The arp would would run about ten minutes and then crash the whole synth and it would stay lit but be otherwise dead, no sound. I got it for xmas from MgAudio Toronto and now it is mid march and it still hasn't been replaced. It's kind of a nightmare. I hope if they re-run the minibruteSE more than this current 3,000 units that they make one in black... Or just quietly add the sequencer to the regular mini. Idk. I just run the minibrute off steppolyarp from an ipad anyway... when i had one! Arturia, Please get Mgaudio Toronto some more units!!!
