With minibrut, you do again this choice? Cons Might be too old-school for some. The MiniBrute comes with a USB port and editing software but this shouldn’t be seen as a full patch editor. The triangle wave-shaping takes the form of a ‘Metalizer’ that apparently ‘folds’ the wave back on itself to create additional harmonics.

Given that all its prior sound-generation systems have been firmly bedded in software, though, it came as mininrute a surprise when Arturia announced the MiniBrute, a ‘real’ hardware synth.

But the interest is not, in fact, the sound palette MiniBrute is matched the imagination of the man behind the instrument.

Arturia MiniBrute review | MusicRadar

Not only was it the first new mass-market analog VCO synth in quite a while, it was also from a company known for its soft synths. In short ergonomics is the highlight of the MiniBrute. I love it for bass and leads. In the subtractive synthesis arena, the filter section is just as important and, like the oscillators, the MiniBrute takes a somewhat unusual route. There are a lot of knobs and sliders on it.


It is recommended to heat the MiniBrute few moments then adjust the tuning as our good old guitars I want to note that I am unfortunately stumbled upon minlbrute faulty keyboard on my purchase in January There is nothing better than to add some effects to highlight.

User reviews: Arturia MiniBrute – Audiofanzine

A little trick that I like, and I just started to really use is the audio input. At extreme settings the result is harsh and clangourous, but subtler variations are easily dialled-in as well.

All right, 3 knob, the dreaded brutalizer, the knob for the headphone volume and the overall volume. The MiniBrute a small monophonic analog without memory minibrrute, but with a strong personality It has 2 audio outputs and a built in arpeggiator.

The MiniBrute is great for FX, arturua, evolving rhythmic patterns. From the classical guitar, I adapt MiniBrute of sounds with guitar sounds to create a happy marriage. The Ultrasaw is also beautiful.


The Arturia Minibrute- Part 3- Modulation. In use, the MiniBrute was immense fun and surprisingly flexible. But the interest is not there, in fact, the sound mknibrute of MiniBrute only matched by the imagination of the man behind the instrument. Personally, I used the software once, to see what it was, I did nothing to change the configuration.

I made this demo today as I love sound design and I had lots of fun playing and tweaking my Minibrute. Let me explain, it’s easy to get big sound gross turning all the knobs to 11, but it is capable of much more than that.


Our members also liked: But this reveals the true heart of the MiniBrute – for those brought-up on synths with multiple arthria and built-in effects, the MiniBrute might seem like a step back into the dark ages, even if the upside is the possibility of sonic originality.

Midierror shows us how https: I never use cards included in the box to record the sound setting. 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.

It’s a great performance synth, that encourages you to play, but for live use you’ll need to be nimble-fingered to conjure up different patches in quick succession, even if Arturia kindly provides some blank cutout patch cards for ‘storing’ your own creations along with a few pre-printed ‘presets’ to get you revlew. In fact, it’s mainly used for updating the synth’s firmware and providing access to parameters not available on the front panel.
