Enter Arturia’s MiniBrute, a true hardware analogue mono synth MiniBrute has only one oscillator, but if that immediately makes you think it.

Good value for money! Write a user review. 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. I just spent my afternoon to pass its signal to the internal effects of Kronos, and there is the big delusion.

In short ergonomics is the highlight of the MiniBrute. Its depth, alongside filter cutoff, can be controlled by the position of the modulation wheel or keyboard Aftertouch.

This also means that the synth requires a warm-up period of at least five minutes to reach a pitch-stable state. The MiniBrute, as stated earlier, has a single oscillator, but monibrute does somewhat understate its sophistication. Many of those who were initially unconvinced by the single VCO were quickly swayed by the sonic flexibility of the waveforms and the sub-oscillator.

Mjnibrute, it depends reeview you trying to do too; In short, the MiniBrute can make music as noise. Perfect complement other analog or softwares incomparable! A particularly interesting feature here is the ability to clock the LFO rate minibrure the built-in arpeggiator tempo.

The MiniBrute is great for FX, leads, evolving rhythmic patterns. This is partly true, because there are certain parameters that must be configured by software, but this is the kind of parameters that rule once Velocity curve, midi channel I knew that the old school synth emulations performed by Arturia, and no, I’d never put my finger on a real analog synth. The multimode Steiner-Parker filter provides versatility beyond what most vintage mono synths deliver.



Should not place undue reliance on demonstration videos that abound on the Internet; they do not reflect a comprehensive view of the instrument. Easier to use and I fell in love with modifiers signals and the gross factor. The MiniBrute falls into the traditional discrete VCO design camp, but includes some interesting additions that take its sound-generating capabilities beyond what, at first glance, appears to be a modern take on Roland’s classic SH And here I must say that it is always a downer for me.

They have nice expressiveness and after touch. PWM is a classic way to fatten-up single oscillator synth designs.

Special mention to the manual, simple, clear, comprehensive and didactic. All right, 3 knob, the dreaded brutalizer, the knob for the headphone volume and the overall volume.

However, there are many variants even reviwe the VCO stable – from discrete designs built from separate components to those built into a single custom chip alongside filters, LFOs and envelope control sections.

Are the effects effective and responsive?

There are no built-in effect in the MiniBrute, personally I just sticks it a slight reverb and that’s enough. In essence, it’s a single oscillator VCO-based synthesizer allied to a note keyboard – though, as we’ll see, this somewhat undersells the full spec. I want to note that I am unfortunately stumbled upon a faulty keyboard on my purchase in January Built in an aluminum body with rubber end caps, the MiniBrute is rugged, with only the knobs feeling a bit on the wobbly side.


All user reviews for the Arturia MiniBrute

Lets soft sounds and vintage, are the aggressive and modern Arturka things even further, Arturia provide “Ultrasaw” control over the saw waveform and “Metalizer” over the triangle wave, allowing the user to create unique new sounds for a VCO mono synth.

I love it for bass and leads. Its tone can be tamed for softer textures, but it seems to gravitate toward the raunchy, with its “Brute Factor” control adding rich distortion.

That could push some of the beginners awaybut if you are a seasoned producer and understand working with analog synths this is a must minibruhe for your collection. Multitimbral – 1 part.

You can also have smooth sounds, you worry! In addition, another LFO is dedicated solely to vibrato pitch modulation dutieswith minibruts own rate and shape controls. 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. Not easy to test riffs of my favorite songs on this keyboard without using more or less skillfully octave transpose buttons.

Then a LFO part and a basic arpeggiator but can already have fun. Editing sounds is therefore very fast.

Sawtooth, square and triangle waves, alongside a white noise source, can be mixed in varying amounts. The pitches are very well thought out: With no other analog synthesizer, I have no material to compare.
