Arturia MicroBrute with Dan Ingala (Plushgun)

Arturia Microbrute

We gave Dan Ingala (of the band Plushgun) the brand-new MicroBrute analog synth from Arturia. He made a demo track – check the video above to see him perform it. All the sounds except for the drums were created on the MicroBrute.

Korg Volca Series with Beto Cravioto

Korg Volca Series

We gave a set of the new Korg Volcas to Brooklyn-based DJ and producer Beto Cravioto and he gave us a taste of how powerful these little synths can be. He dropped by Virtue & Vice studios and improvised this track on the spot.

Check out the Volcas here.

Two thirds of the legendary Bladerunners crew came down to rock Brooklyn’s best hip hop party The Rub this past Saturday and picked up the Midi Fighters we had in ProAudioStar colorways while they were in the neighborhood.

And if you’ve never been to The Rub you’re missing out on one of the wildest parties and some of the best DJing New York has to offer. Check out the full photoset at our Flickr page.
