Since it's midi only, it's super reliable; never had problems.

Regarding sync, if you mean to sync microbrute sequences with Live's tempo that should be good; I don't use sync, I think it's better to have all the sequences in Live, not in the hardware.

Some user said about Live's sync problems but I don't know much about that.

It's a cool device because you will control up to 4 synths!

Great !
Regarding sync, one of the best feature of the MB is that its LFO would sync.
Also, i fill its sequencer on stage, this is a lot of fun..

Cool! I forgot lfos :)

Would be nice to hear some of your MB live recordings; let us know if you'll post them around.

In the meantime happy syncin'!

Yes, the MIDI Out port on the A-800 Pro is considered a separate addressable MIDI port. I have an A-300 Pro and use it all the time.

there's a bunch of CV ins on the microbrute, right? You could use Expert Sleepers Silent Way to control them using your audio interface. The motu ultra light is ideal for this.
