Just a note. I think the Arturia soft synths are very usable now that we have ver 3 with larger, re-sizable GUIs and better preset management. You can actually dig into them much more easily. The Matrix is great. The Solina is fun. I've been enjoying most of them. Yep, there are similarities in sound. But there is considerable variety in interfaces, structures, and filters and modulation possibilities. I like 'em.

They should stop doing emulations that not what they are good at they should do their own synt instead of building the products on others brands and fooling people they got the real thing.

They were just emulations, not the real things.
And obviously they are now deep into making hardware synths. Seem to be doing a good job.

Sort of interesting how Arturia started out emulating the major vintage analog synths and now their own synths are only analog I believe.....they jump right over the virtual analog....no Im wrong they have or had a synth called Origin I think filled with all their software.  Word was it was pretty good.

I have often thought of picking up a Minibrute, really good little mono synth and cheap!

My brother has a Microbrute and manages to produce amazing sounds with it. It's a fun little unit. :)

Might as well buy the software and map a controller to it, lot cheaper than the hardware and sounds the same !
