Zedius ,On the release date on the Arturia website was April,also on Namm they told everybody April.
You can't blame the shops for telling their customers April.
The communication of Arturia sucks hard.
I don't like this!
If I don't have it in 3 day's I'm buying another synth.
So now Arturia can release it faster because they have to made 1 less.
Even still no Manual?
What is this for a sick joke !
F you Arturia!
You know that there's always a more patient buyer waiting for "your" Minibrute, don't you?
No Minibrute will be homeless, that's for sure.
I'm also expecting a 30% backlash of n00b buyers not knowing what to do or how to take advantage of the Minibrute features, dumping it on eBay 1 month or 2 weeks later, so even those won't be homeless for long
About the shipping dates, Arturia changed it once, from April to the end of May and that's it. I wouldn't be surprised if they had to change it again to the end of June due to all the current pressures on shipping/logistics and manufacturing issues the electronics industry in China is going through at this moment.
A lot of retailers "played" with unreal release dates. Some even referenced February! ...Arturia has nothing to do with those claims.
Also, if you think straight, you know deep inside that rushing the release of the Minibrute will end up in a lot of complaints and returned units with manufacturing defects due to the rushed Quality Control process.
Insight and patience is a good quality.
