Arturia made three big announcements already....

 

 

They're coming out with a line of Eurorack cases / power supplies called the RackBrute.

They must be feeling their Brute strength because they've also announced two new 'Brute synths:

 

 

The semi-modular MiniBrute 2:

And the MiniBrute 2S, which has the same 2 oscillator analog synth engine and patch bay as the MiniBrute 2, but with the keys replaced with pads and a "three layer" sequencer added:

The big news from Fender (with more to come...) is the announcement of the new American Original series. These 50's - 70's vintage inspired guitars will replace the long running American Vintage series instruments, and take more of a "best of the decade" approach to the features instead of slavishly sticking to what any particular model year originally came equipped with.
