Sound Shaping Features
The Arturia MiniBrute 2 comes jam packed with powerful sound shaping features that enable you to create everything from brutal, deep basses to light, lead lines. It offers two mixable, multi-waveform oscillators with sound shapers for mixing in the sawtooth, square, pulse, triangle, and sine waveforms. VCO1 also features metalizer, pulse width, and FM knobs for tweaking and thickening up sounds. The white noise generator allows you to add high frequency content to your sounds. The MiniBrute 2 features a Steiner-Parker multimode filter that offers a beefy, acidic tone with high-pass, low-pass, band, and notch filters for dynamically shaping and moulding your sound. Next we have the ADSR and AD envelopes that allow you to create snappy, punchy sounds and smooth, lead lines. The MiniBrute 2 also features two LFOs with multiple waveforms. The MiniBrute 2 lets your imagination run wild, allowing you to tweak parameters and create the sounds stuck inside your head.
This feature makes the MiniBrute one of the most aggressive-sounding analog synths around. The Brute Factor control is capable of adding subtle drive, or causing complete chaos. At low levels, this control can give your low end sounds some saturation and enhancement, whilst at high levels it can completely disintegrate a sound.
The MiniBrute 2 enables you to discover the modular world. It provides you with a 48-point modulation matrix that allows you to unlock a new world of possibilities. The comprehensive CV Gate modulation matrix provides you with a whole range of sources and destinations for experimenting with the internal parameters, wiring in your modular setup, or syncing your external equipment with the internal sequencer. This is definitely one for the modular eurorack users.
Hands-On Synth Fun
The MiniBrute 2 provides you with endless hours of enjoyment. With instant, hands-on control for every parameter, the MiniBrute 2 will have you amazed at its sound creation possibilities and intuitive functions. It is easy to use, and will have you creating powerful sounds in an instant. Quickly whack up a sequence, and then mix your oscillators, ride your filters, tweak your LFOs, and switch up your envelopes all at once whilst playing.
