Arturia MicroBrute – first impression

If a “Mini” model is followed by an even smaller “Micro” model, expectations might be very low. You could easily overlook the new Arturia synthesizer, but … boy, that would be a mistake! This instrument does not only sound fantastic, it also has a very clever concept. More than that, it is – thanks to the new performance opportunities – even more attractive than the original MiniBrute.
