    I have a ton of their soft synths. Arturia makes good stuff.
    I bought this however and have been gigging with it for a few months.

    You get a few more options I think.

    That looks sweet! I think it's about $200 more than the MicroBrute, though. The Micro might be a good starter synth for someone on a tighter budget.

    Huh?
    I just saw these myself a couple days ago. Definitely high on my "to get" list.

    I've had serious GAS since the Minibrute, and even more with the Microbrute. My cash flow is a bit low these days, but I think I will get a Microbrute some time in 2014.

    I have an M-Audio Axiom. Needs a laptop but it's a ton of fun for bass synth. I like the addition of the pressure and velocity sensitive pads and all the buttons are big and easy to use. Pretty cheap to get your feet wet with synths if you have a laptop, say $100 or so. If you like it, you can step up and get a real synth with it's own oscillators.

    I've got an Axiom Pro 49. For a while I was using that and my macbook. Definitely far more flexible as far as routing parameters to knobs and certainly an unlimited amount of sounds. it was more stuff than I wanted to bring though on top of my bass rig. I needed a second tier for the macbook, king of looked silly rocking out behind it, and an audio interface for the sound output (I don't trust any 1/8" connector when it's plugged into a huge PA). For the amount of bass synth I need, the hardware synth is easier.
