Product Description for the Arturia MINIBRUTE RED
MiniBrute is a revolutionary new analog synthesizer from Arturia. Featuring a pure analog signal path and a host of unique features, it sets a new standard for what a hardware synthesizer should be.
Bring the Noise
Designed for the analog purist, MiniBrute packs an extraordinary potential for warm and powerful sounds into a very portable design. Loaded with the legendary Steiner-Parker multimode filter, a multi-wave Oscillator and Sub Oscillator, MiniBrute excels at delivering fat bass lines, screaming leads and fascinating sonic experiments.
Bring the Fun
In a world dominated by hardware with too few controls and endless navigation in tiny LCD screens, MiniBrute brings back the fun with a true hands-on approach to synthesis.
Authenticity & Innovation
Developed in partnership with synth guru Yves Usson, MiniBrute comes with brilliant innovations such as the Brute Factor™, Metalizer, Ultrasaw, and full USB, MIDI and CV connectivity for easy integration into any modern or vintage setup.
MiniBrute met its match in the classic Steiner-Parker filter, specially revised by Nyle Steiner himself. It’s arguably the best multimode filter design around, delivering analog warmth with a uniquely raw and aggressive edge.
MiniBrute sets a new standard for excellence with its truly unique sound.
Small yet powerful, affordable but built like a tank, 100% analog from a company known for its digital instruments...everything about MiniBrute seems impossible. But when this synth meets your music, anything is possible.
Forget about tiny LCD screens, being lost in menus and sub-menus, and trying to remember double functions and complex procedures. MiniBrute brings back the fun and the immediate hands-on experience of synthesis.
