Minibrute vs. Minibrute SE
« on: February 03, 2015, 09:27:41 pm »
I was an early adopter of the Minibrute and I love it, but I really wanted the sequencer on the SE instead of the Arp. So I bit the bullet and bought a Minibrute SE, and I will need to sell my Minibrute regular edition to support that purchase.

I'm wondering if anyone can clarify a few things about the SE version:

1. I have read that the build quality is improved in this version. I even heard it has a Fatar keyboard. Are either of those rumors true?

2. Some folks complain about not having the arp - could you not just program your sequences as arps and have much of the same functionality?

3. Are there any other differences that I might find surprising, or besides the build quality, colour and the sequencer instead of arp are they identical?

Thanks!

I know right! Its not exactly the most active of forums lol! ;)

To be honest i'm probably not the one to ask about build quality right now if you look at my other, mostly unanswered posts! My SE is back to the shop after various issues. :-[

I don't have the original brute but I don't thibk they differ much apart from the arp/seq stuff. SE does not have a fatar keyboard.

Yes you can program an arpeggio with the sequencer but its not really great for live experimenting arpeggios so it would be cool to have both  way of working.

Thanks for the response! Build quality is a big concern for me. I guess I'll see - hopefully Friday :)

Gonna have to test my unit and compare. Don't want to sell a perfectly good minibrute for a faulty se

I agree, build quality is of great importance. Good luck with your SE - I hope it all works as it should!
