Arturia DrumBrute: Analog Drum Machine Standard

Arturia DrumBrute: Analog Drum Machine Standard

17 November 2016 analog drum synth Arturia DrumBrute becomes available! We’ve been waiting for it and finally can get another Arturia’s synthesizer which already seems as cute as a commercially successful MiniBrute – who knows, maybe it’s going to be one of the market leaders among mid-range drum machines. 17 available instruments, sequencer, multifilter, various patterns and a recording mode as well as the wide range of connectivity possibilities will give a beginner and a professional the chance to improve themselves revealing their potential – and the good part is that you won’t have to save up for it.

Arturia DrumBruteArturia DrumBrute is a drum synthesizer with a fully analog path. This machine is here for you to deliver 17 drum and percussion sounds with thoroughly varied settings. The instrument features an intuitive step sequencer with real time recording, loop and repeat capabilities, 4 banks (16 patterns each), recording mode allowing 4 simultaneous tracks, dual mode resonant filter Steiner/ Parker (LPF HPF).

Fruitful creation is ensured with all the needed knobs for detailed adjustment among which there are Level, Pitch, Decay, Impact, Sweep and etc. Every instrument has assigned control so you won’t find yourself “glued to programming”. There are 16 multifunctional buttons – you can easily get through sequencing using them.

DrumBrute fits great into your analog army – it will surely feel at ease with MiniBrute and MatrixBrute but will also work nice with any other synthesizer thanks to the wide range of connectivity possibilities – audio output per channel, external device sync jacks, MIDI in/out, as well as USB with MIDI support.

The developers provided two headphones outputs - 1/4" and 1/8" and encased their creature within metallic panels and plastic wood-like sides.

You will want this device – it’s even more diverse and smart than Akai Rhythm Wolf and definitely cheaper than DSI Tempest or Elektron Analog Rytm. It looks like the French engineers are doing well and have no lack of aspiration and still have that grasp on the market science.

You can order the instrument right now – it will cost you $450 – but you’ll get it no earlier than 17 November (International Students' Day and, well, it’s also the “Day of Smoking Cessation”).

Today is 7 October - smoke and listen to the DrumBrute, and think whether you should sell a couple of good old volcas you like so much.
