The Arturia DrumBrute Impact is an innovative analog drum machine designed to inspire creativity on the go. The successor to Arturia's acclaimed DrumBrute, the Impact provides a intuitive interface, high-quality sounds and essential features for producing professional beats—all in a rugged, compact chassis ideal for traveling musicians and producers.

Authentic Analog Drum Sounds

The DrumBrute Impact features ten drum channels with a variety of analog sounds, from kicks and snares to cymbals and percussion. Each drum has dedicated tone, decay and level controls for customizing your own signature sounds. The analog filters add warmth and character, allowing you to shape tones ranging from crisp and electronic to punchy and acoustic.

Advanced Sequencer With Polyphonic Stepping

The built-in 64-step sequencer provides an easy way to program rhythms and patterns. Use the step repeat and accent functions to create variations, fills, and buildups. The polyphonic sequencer lets you program different drums on the same step, opening up possibilities for intricate rhythms. Save your favorite patterns to the 16 pattern slots and chain them together into complete songs.

Robust Connectivity and Sync Options

Despite its compact size, the DrumBrute Impact offers versatile connectivity. Sync with modular synths, drum machines and DAWs using the MIDI in/out and clock in/out ports. Use the USB port to control the Impact with your computer and save patterns for backup. The headphone output allows for private practice, while the main outputs can connect to monitors, mixers and recording interfaces.

Road-Ready Design

Measuring only 8.75" x 7.2" x 2.2", the DrumBrute Impact is designed to fit into any gig bag or backpack. Its durable metal chassis and knobs can withstand the wear and tear of life on the road. Power the Impact with the included 12V DC adapter or with USB power from your laptop or portable charger for maximum portability.
