Arturia MINIBRUTE Analog Synthesizer

It is not really new for me but I had to keep this secret 😉
ARTURIA will release his first genuine ANALOG Synth and he’s called MINIBRUTE…

Globaly the MINIBRUTE make me remember the ROLAND SH-101 :

One button, one function ! Simple and damn efficient ! Back to the roots !
Here is an audio example coming from Amazona.de : MiniBrute

The price gonna be arround $550 which is pretty fair I think 😉

Dave Smith Instrument – MoPho Refill – Alpha

Here is a small preview of my next Refill, the “MoPho Refill”…
In this small Refill, you’ll find 2 patches (NN-XT, Combinator) and 216 stereo samples (24bit/96Khz) of OSC1 (Sawtooth) + SUBOSC1 (Square) covering a total of 6 octaves with 3 samples per note to allow the “Round Robin” feature…

Yes, Mopho is analog so I could’nt bypass the Round Robin feature…
Each sample has been carefully sampled and sliced, their lenght is about 3/4 of a bar at 120BPM
The Refill size is a bit less than 100MB but the final release will be quite large, probably about 4 giga…

MoPho Refill Alpha

DSI MoPho

The Korg Monotron was my first analog synth and I must admit that I was quite impressed by it…

It did not take long to convince myself to buy another analog synth. To do so I made my inquiry and after a few months It was clear that the new one would be the “Doepfer Darkenergy” or the “Dave Smith instrument Monophonic SynthĂ©tiser” alias Mopho for intimates…

Finally, I’ve choosed the Mopho because despite the fact that he has no USB interface, this one was more modern, has a built in 4 tracks sequencer, and has also an internal memory containing 384 factory presets…

MoPho basses

The sound of the Mopho is incredible, powerfull, warm… In one word, There is no way to compare such instrument to a virtual synth even if it comes from Arturia…

I never could get such rich and powerfull sound with a software synth because whats comming out this beast is so living !

I’ll come back later to make a complete review about it !
