      Arturia Microbrute Analog Synthesizer (109595983)
Availability:  


Analog monster in miniature.

The new Arturia MicroBrute is the next generation of the Brute family of synthesizers. The little brother of the award winning, modern classic: MiniBrute. The MicroBrute is smaller in size but retains the pure analog sound, the famed Steiner-Parker filter as well as Arturia's multiple wave oscillator with wave-shapers. No shortcuts were taken in making sure that the MicroBrute sound stands up to any analog synth on the market.

New Features
Step sequencer: Arturia has added a new step sequencer for generating patterns. This easy-to-us step sequencer is reminiscent of sequencers found on the Sequential Circuits Pro One as well as the rare and classic Oberheim DS-2a.

Updated Sub-oscillator: The new sub-oscillator allows for adding an octave down as well as the ability to mix in a 5th up harmonic. This allows this single oscillator synth to sound like a monster with multiple oscillators.

Mod Matrix: The Mod Matrix patchbay allows you to route 3 modulation sources, ENV, LFO and Keyboard CV (on the rear panel) to any of 6 modulation destinations. This semi modular capability allows for many sound-making capabilities.

The MicroBrute is the smallest and most powerful analog synth on the market and it promises to set a new standard for analog synth sound and price.

Arturia Microbrute Analog Synthesizer Features:

  • Same oscillator design as MiniBrute
    Ultrasaw, Pulse width, Metalizer wave-shapers
    Steiner-Parker multimode filter: High Pass, Low Pass, Band Pass modes
    Brute factor

  • Analogue is back

    As reviewed by warren christiansen on 11/25/2013

    I own a LOT of virtual synths; Omnisphere,Alchemy, NI Komplete... & I love them all, but I had more fun in the first 20 minutes with this synth than I have with any instrument in years. If you think you want this, you probably do. Only thing missing is a second oscillator for detune, but the sub & mixed waveforms can make it sound like more than one.

  • Inspiring bang for buck.

    As reviewed by Peter Dyer on 1/5/2014

    I was looking for a backpack midi controller, and this jumped out as it's got an analog synth attached. It has some unique quirks, including a non-Moog-ish glide, and slower envelopes, but other quirks are a fresh boon, liked stackable waveforms on a single VCO, the strange "metalizer", and a multi-mode filter. Syncing the onboard sequencer with Logic wasn't perfect, and it's not bus-powered, but again, it's a $300 analog synth that fits in a backpack.

  • Poor Quality Control

    As reviewed by Matthew Hoang on 3/8/2014

    A lot of people have complained about the build quality regarding the Minibrute, so I hoped that they would have put more thought into the build quality for the Microbrute. Right off the bat I notice that the Pitch bend wheel was completely buggy. Bending the pitch up would not have a smooth transition up, instead it would STEP down a whole tone and then STEP up a whole tone relative to the key being pressed. Researching my problem, it was evident that this is a common problem. Rather than hassle for a replacement (which I had no faith in being 100% functional) or dealing with the manufacturer I returned it as soon as possible.
