Nucleo Pro 2 ($395 US) supports all versions of Adobe After Effects version 7.0 and the new After Effects CS3 Professional on both Windows and Mac OS X platforms. Nucleo Pro 1 customers may upgrade to Nucleo Pro 2 for $99, it is also possible to try before you buy (requires registration). Check out the Feature Tutorials here. [source]

Arturia MiniBrute 2 semi-modular analog synthesizer coming this February

Arturia MiniBrute 2 Into Video Arturia announced the imminent release of a new synthesizer, one of three new products which will all be available at stores from late February 2018. MiniBrute 2 is a 25-key analog monosynth with semi-modular architecture, bridging the gap between the traditional synthesizer instruments and the world of modular. MiniBrute 2 shares many of the same iconic features that made its predecessor a success, including mixable oscillators, the acidic Steiner-Parker filter, and the chaotic Brute Factor. While keeping many of its signature elements, the tone-shaping potential of MiniBrute 2 has been almost exponentially increased. The re-imagined MiniBrute now features semi-modular architecture, adding a comprehensive CV/Gate patch matrix that allows users to both rework its internal signal routing, but also expand into the world of modular. It also features the same high quality, aftertouch-enabled keybed found in their flagship MatrixBrute synth. [source]
