I've been checking these forums every month for an update on this.

Yesterday I decided to just contact Arturia through their website.

Today I got this response from the sales dept.:-

 "Thank you for using Arturia product. There is an update on the way, technical dept hope to be able to get it sorted before Christmas, as they have many many things to do. I cannot assure that the update will be out before Christmas but in the end, there will be something out about local midi out for the Minibrute."

...not the greatest news but at least there is some kind of time frame and assurance that it will be implement.

Cool I guess. This should have been implemented from the very first. Impossible to use as a live controller for other synths unless you sacrifice the synth inside the brute. Idk why this thread wasn't dead and problem fixed within a month--or at least some temporary firmware fixit to tide people over.

so before i reply i get

"Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days.
Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic."

this thread is 1.5 years old....

AND STILL NO LOCAL ON/OFF.

really...what gives? just release a quick firmware update that ONLY ADDS THIS. no one is begging for an entire overhaul of the firmware, just tweaks and this isn't even a "feature" it's an expected standard.

microbrute...beatstep...imini...isem...keylab series...the upcoming spark 2....all done in the meantime, and yet somehow there has been no way to add this feature? even as say a V1.0.2.2 or something...no big deal.

to turn on and off, i suggest this:

1. hold "UP" and "DOWN" octave buttons for 3 seconds
2. octave light blinks to signal you have entered local off mode
3. light continues to blink (say 1 time per 5-10 seconds) so that the user won't forget that they are in local off and that's why their keys are not working
4. hold "UP" and "DOWN" octave buttons for 3 seconds, lights blink in a unique patten (say sequentially from -2 -> +2) to signal local on is engaged
5. no blinking in local on mode.

also, to "idiot proof" it, the synth should always by default start in local on...so that turning it on/off would fix it if someone couldn't figure out why the keys didn't work.

i probably would've bought the microbrute by now, and also be planning on buying the beatstep as well...but i feel abandoned. it's not like users just started asking for this feature...

it's been a year and a half.

thanks for the description, but it's been decided the local on/off will be handled the same as on Microbrute: local ON at startup, then changeable with standard midi CC from USB or midi input.

Believe it if you want but I have coded it yesterday :)
A beta will be available every soon

I think it would be very important for this to be switchable without having to attach any other devices.

The same goes for changing MIDI channel, it's not really acceptable that I have to plug the Minibrute to my computer for that, I don't even use a computer in the studio!

We should be able to do all this in the Minibrute itself, just take a look at the Alesis Q25 midi controller keyboard, there's loads of midi settings that can be tweaked right from the keyboard.

Thanks.

It would be great if midi channel/local control, etc could be switched without a computer, but in the absence of that, I think an iOS app for these tasks would be a nice alternative.

There are lots of iOS apps that already support Midi CC messages. Thanks Bruno!

I still agree it would be nice to control arp mode, velocity curve and all the rest with an app, but you've got control over local on/off pretty easily if it accepts Midi CC.

Would be great if all the settings in the Minibrute app could also be set using CC messages via standard MIDI (and not just USB).

don't worry, it was "coded" on february 10 and the beta is coming out VERY SOON!!!

in the meantime why not place an order for a minibrute SE?
