From the classical guitar, I adapt Minibrutd of sounds with guitar sounds to create a happy marriage. It has 2 audio outputs and a built in arpeggiator. This is clearly one area where digital control and menu systems or just more knobs can be advantageous, but Arturia does strike a reasonable compromise here. If using an external clock, holding Tap switches the Tempo knob to a clock divider, so plenty of flexibility here.

But the interest is not, in fact, the sound palette MiniBrute is matched the imagination of the man behind the instrument. Did you find this review helpful? There is nothing better than to add some effects to highlight.

But it allowed me to have to do the service of the company has been able to show fast and efficient. Below this first table, adjusting the modulation wheel, vibrato and aftertouch. Keyboard – 25 note semi-weighted, with aftertouch assignable to Cutoff or Vibrato amount.

We arturiia changed the LFO re-triggering and legato playing modes, though these would have benefitted from more immediate front-panel access. Write a user review. So, if something like that out in the future, they could be sure, and some sell at least one.

Original images from Arturia. The keys are pretty good for it to just be a 25 key synth. The Vibrato LFO does have 3 modes, sine, trill down and trill up. What is the particular feature you like best and least? I just spent my afternoon to pass its signal to the internal effects of Kronos, and there is the big delusion. It is finally open to the outside synth: Given the nature of the machine, do not expect to get out of the sounds imitating certain instruments of the orchestra.


Arpeggiator – 4 modes, 4 octave range control, 6 step divisions, 6 Swing modes, Hold. As is with monophonic, we forget the pads and strings. If you are looking for a analog synth to get your feet wet with than the MiniBrute is perfect for you.

The MiniBrute is also sold with sheets to record their favorite sounds but I think once mastered, everything is done in 30 seconds by my watch There is also a similarly designed filter envelope section, which also doubles as a modulation source for the oscillator’s PWM and Metalizer elements discussed earlier. The rear panel is well supplied: The absence of memory and is preset to me a quality that requires the user to be creative at all times.

There are no embedded in the MiniBrute effect, personally I just glue it a slight reverb and that’s enough. One begins to play the new Klaus Schulze D Finally, I would say that this synth is a bomb that perfectly complements my little home studio as my first analog. With a little experience we find very quickly that we seek.

Weight – 4 kg 8. The pitches are very well thought out: The final word on this then is that we’re seriously considering buying one – though we might have to wait for the ‘PolyBrute’ should Arturia decide to make one!

This is partly true, because there are certain parameters that must be configured by software, but this is the kind of parameters that rule once Velocity curve, midi channel Beginners Value For Money: Steiner Parker filter characteristic, the gross factor, the mixer waveform, the enrichment of waves, the sub oscillator, envelopes, many possible modulations, grain, general architecture, fact that there is no preset or memory and finally the price.

The Arturia Minibrute- Part 3- Modulation. Too often the demonstrators push the fader thoroughly, abusing the gross factor and Metalizer modulates excessive, while with a little finesse in the settings, the resulting sound becomes much more interesting and musical.

It is quite fun and instructive to try to imitate sounds known: The filter envelope can also modulate the square wave’s pulse width and artkria triangle’s metalizer. The MiniBrute comes with a USB port and editing software but this shouldn’t be revuew as a full patch editor. Cookies help us improve performance, enhance user experience and deliver our services. But beware, I do not go down the MiniBrute which has excellent sound with a very wide range of sounds from his silky tones to more undue via brutalizer or Metalizer.


User reviews: Arturia MiniBrute – Audiofanzine

With no other analog synthesizer, I have no material to compare. However it is clear that Arturiaa no longer will touch one VSTi: Does anyone know if it would be possible to change the keybed for a better one?

Memory – None, patch sheets supplied.

Inevitably, it is always the last in which to receive more attention But in terms of synthesis is totally different, more versatile. In addition, another LFO is dedicated solely to vibrato pitch modulation dutieswith its own rate and shape controls. It is recommended to heat the MiniBrute few moments then adjust the tuning as our good old guitars For example, we did find that the default sensitivity of the Aftertouch was such that the effect kicked in rather quickly – especially noticeable when used with vibrato – but the software does let you chose a gentler onset curve.


As against the MiniBrute opens the way to all the trials and there can applaud with both hands. Even if it seems weak it is rather comfortable. A nice touch is the Tap tempo button for matching the Arp speed to a real-time source – holding down the Tap button switches to relative mode for more accuracy.
