Arturia MICROBRUTE Analogue Synthesizer

Regular price $449.00 Sale

MicroBrute is pure analogue sonic powerhouse of a synth. Small in size but loaded with features, it follows in the footsteps laid by its big brother the MiniBrute.

Packed with mixable waveforms, a new sub oscillator design, the famous Steiner-Parker multimode filter, super fast envelope, syncable LFO and the new step sequencer, not to mention the patchable mod matrix the MicroBrute is a landmark new synth at an incredible price.

The MicroBrute is new but carries the award-winning heritage of its big brother, the MiniBrute.

The MicroBrute was designed to be small but still retain an amazing sound quality. With a 100% pure analogue voice path and advanced interconnectablity via MIDI, USB, CV/GATE, this machine is a true powerhouse synthesiser that takes your sound to a new level.

A synthesiser is a musical instrument that is meant to be played. However, playing a synthesiser is more than just playing some notes on a keyboard and recalling someone else’s presets. If that was the goal you could be looking at accordions or going to a department store to buy your keyboard (along with socks, milk and toilet paper)…but you aren’t because you are more creative than that.

No presets, no menus, nothing to get between you and the ability to sculpt your sound live. Not only does MicroBrute give you the means to create, perform and be completely original every time you power up, it does so with astounding sound quality.

The Voice path on the MicroBrute is 100% Analogue, not digitally controlled analogue, not digital oscillators with a wave shaper, but true honest analogue.

This gives MicroBrute the same sort of rich, warm sound found in its award winning big brother, the MiniBrute.

This gives the MicroBrute a sound that will not go out of fashion or get stale, just like the many true analog classics that are still around today getting top dollar.

The MicroBrute oscillator generates multiple wave shapes at one time. The wave mixer allows you to blend these different waveforms in varying levels to create and unending variety of sounds.

Some synths that cost 2, 3 and 4 times as much only allow you to enable or disable the waveforms. This leaves you with 2 or 3 options for the raw sound. The MicroBrute oscillator does not hold back on sonic capabilities and allows you the freedom to create your own sound.

The oscillator waves and wave mixer are nice but they don't stop there. We have added special wave shapers on every waveform that boldly expands the sonic range. Most synths have pulse width mod... yeah, we do too.

No other synths have our Triangle wave Metalizer or our analog Ultrasaw modifiers. The Metalizer adds upper end harmonics to the normally dark triangle wave and can produce some sharp cutting bass sounds. The Ultrasaw makes the single saw sound like 2 or 3 saw waves that are slightly detuned making it the biggest single analog wave you have ever heard.
