I am a big fan of Arturia products, they have good build quality, good sound and they are priced very well. I have upgraded to Minibrute 2 from Microbrute and I am really happy about it. The patchbay on this thing adds flexibility and great integration with other instruments (synths, modular, effect pedals, ...). It sounds pretty good on it's own but it really shines when you add external effects and the patch bay makes that quite easy. Definitely recommend it.
