The Arturia MicroBrute is an analog powerhouse of a synth. It may be small in size but loaded with features, it follows in the footsteps laid by its big brother the MiniBrute. Filled with mixable waveforms, a new sub oscillator design, the famous Steiner-Parker multimode filter, super fast envelope, syncable LFO and the new step sequencer, not to mention the patchable mod matrix the MicroBrute is a landmark new synth at an incredible price.

If you’re new to synths, you’re looking at one of the easiest to use and most unique-sounding synthesizers we think money can buy. And if you’re a synth veteran, we think it won’t have escaped your attention that MicroBrute is also a seriously capable semi-modular sequence-able beast. Wait till you hear how it sounds.

Process audio. Sequence analog gear. Give your modular a new LFO and Envelope Generator. Hook up to your DAW and make whole tracks. Hook up to your Drumtracks, open your door, and play a whole gig.

Tiny in size, tiny in price, huge in sound, and vast in potential. We’ve had so much fun with MicroBrute: Now it’s your turn.

Details

A synthesizer is a musical instrument that is meant to be played.
However, playing a synthesizer is more than just playing some notes on a keyboard and recalling someone else’s presets. If that was the goal you could be looking at accordions or going to a department store to buy your keyboard (along with socks, milk and toilet paper)…but you aren’t, because you’re more creative than that.

1-Massive Oscillator
Sawtooth, Pulse and Triangle waves with unique modifiers. Ultra Saw makes for huge sounds; Metalizer adds complex harmonics to the triangle wave. Sub Osc will rattle the house.

2-Steiner-Parker Filter
Beefy filter with Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass modes. Resonance can be pushed into self-oscillation.

3-Modulation Matrix
Modulate the sound of the MicroBrute by connecting modulation sources and destinations. You can also use it to connect with external gear. With the MicroBrute's stackable patch cables, you get even more modulation possibilities!

4-Sequencer
You get 8 sequences with up to 64 steps each to create multiple musical phrases.

5-Superfast Envelope
ADSR envelope generator allows the sharpest attacks or extra-long release times.

6-Syncable LFO
The LFO supplies three waveforms and can run in sync with the Sequencer.


7-Fine Tuning
The MicroBrute uses 100% analog VCO's. Although ours are very stable, you may sometimes need to tune your instrument.

8-CV/Gate in/out
Connect your MicroBrute with your vintage analog gear.

9-Audio in/out
Process audio through MicroBrute; connect it to your favorite devices thanks to its audio input and output as well as MIDI input.

10-USB Connection
Control MicroBrute from your DAW or use it as a master keyboard.
