a few months ago I also would have considered buying any arturia's product but right now, after the microfreak release and the false claim about any collaboration with Mutable Instruments and then the release of the Synthi plugin and the issue about how they bought the trademark under the nose of EMS... i'll stay away from this manufacturer.

It was news to me as well.

The alternative of course is to choose from the many, many excellent little MIDI keyboards and run it into a MIDI-to-CV module.

Arturia microfreak is worth considering- has touch kb and a small touch strip
