If Arturia released a Polybrute

So want an Arturia poly...but not really of the brute tech. They've released two analogs that are the same at heart, and a special edition version of each. That makes 4 synthesizers, but only one sound. Ready for something new from them, something a bit more sweet, that Steiner-Parker can be a bit harsh sometimes (..and everything else about the machine). I want something that will complement my Minibrute and Microbrutes, not copy them again.

IMO, the two features I think would make a freaking awesome poly from Arturia are (in addition to a white paint job)
1.) Loopable envelopes
2.) a phaser or spring verb rather than a chorus, with CV modulation of course.

Easy to implement, and unique enough to set it apart. Unique just like those brutes were/are. $1,500 - $1,600.
I mean, If they can market a niche piece of digital hardware for $3,000 (Origin), they could absolutely produce something half as expensive that people actually desire. Come on Arturia, you can do it!

Bump. Still not over this Arturia.
How about a poll? I'd hate to see Behringer
get there first. 2 years is a long time.

Damn; this one died down quick. I guess nobody wants a really affordable analog 8 voice. Shame. Lets hope the Interface doesn't flop or redirect Arturia away from analog synths.
Drums are my primary instrument, but i sing & write so, i use keys to write. Guitar as well but, i love synths, more inspiring to me. Can't financially justify a DSI/SC, Modal 8 voice poly so, i wish hard for a $1,000 Polybrute.
Something i think would sell in nice numbers because,... I mean, look at Parva. It has "sold" quite a few and, ain't even out. P6,p08 look and sound nice but, $2k is way too much for me.
Sorry for the long post but, I'm sort of the only person i know around here that loves and talks synths. Sure i know kboard players but, most use Romplers/bread n butter kind stuff, no tweaking. Boring to me mostly.

I would settle for the exact same polyphony as the Volca Keys with the minibrute filter and LFO if they can keep it to $600. If they do anything else and get higher in price they would get too close to the Dave Smith options, therefore I wouldn't buy it.

Seriously , as much as I love my Volca Keys, it's a shame that it has the multi-note, analog, synth under $300 on Lock.

At this point, i say screw Arturia! Roland will have my money soon. Be it the Boutiques or their offspring(full size w/keys, 16 voice ACB.

I'd have no interest unless it sounded vastly different from the Mini and Micro. It would need to top the A4 Keys.
