Arturia MiniBrute

Well how about that? An all analog hardware synth from Arturia. The MiniBrute has some unique features including a Steiner Parker filter, supersaw ocillator, “metal” triangle oscillator, Brute factor (re-input staging) and an arpeggiator with tap tempo and 6 swing settings. CV, Midi… 499 Euro, $549 USD!

“MiniBrute is Arturia’s new analog synthesizer. With a pure analog signal path and several innovative features, it sets a new standard for what a hardware synthesizer should be. The pure analog, multi-wave oscillator combined with a huge sounding classic multi-mode filter, and wide range of modulation capabilities will bring new life into your recordings and stage performances. Add to that outstanding features like the Ultrasaw, Metalizer, Brute Factor™, Arpeggiator, LFO with sample & hold, full USB/MIDI/CV connectivity; all of which are housed in a rugged metal enclosure and it is almost too brutal to think about!” – Arturia

  1. Video is private? Looks like this will be hot on DSIs tale. Could be tasty.

    1. Yes sorry… this was embargoed until tomorrow but it leaked everywhere. Not sure how I was able to see the video originally… I think via Matrixsynth.

  2. Wow, this looks like fun! Can’t complain about the interface here. I already know what everything does, and the Steiner Filter, CV, S&H and an arpeggiator would make for a tasty subtractive analog monosynth ala SH-101 kinda thing which have gone up in price unfortunately higher than this price new. (should have bought one back when they were $400) Knobs and sliders for everything too, and if its the normal Arturia build quality they should feel pretty solid which is a bonus to ergonomics.

    Actually I don’t know what they mean by: “features like the Ultrasaw, Metalizer, Brute Factor™” but I’d love to find out. Too bad the embedded video link is now marked “Private” by the user. (tease!)
