Arturia MicroBrute

MicroBrute is pure analog 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.

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

Hands-On Heaven
If you're new to synths, you're looking at one of the easiest to use and most unique-sounding synthesizers we think money can buy. And if you're a synth veteran, we think it won't have escaped your attention that MicroBrute is also a seriously capable semi-modular sequence-able beast. Wait till you hear how it sounds.

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 it with astounding sound quality.

Brutal Potential
Process audio. Sequence analog gear. Give your modular a new LFO and Envelope Generator. Hook up to your DAW and make whole tracks. Hook up to your Drumtracks, open your door, and play a whole gig.

Tiny in size, tiny in price, huge in sound, and vast in potential. We've had so much fun with MicroBrute: Now it's your turn.

    Massive Oscillator
    Sawtooth, Pulse and Triangle waves with unique modifiers. Ultra Saw makes for huge sounds; Metalizer adds complex harmonics to the triangle wave. Sub Osc will rattle the house.

    Steiner-Parker Filter
    Beefy filter with Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass modes. Resonance can be pushed into self-oscillation.

    Modulation Matrix
    Modulate the sound of the MicroBrute SE by connecting modulation sources and destinations. You can also use it to connect with external gear. With the MicroBrute SE's stackable patch cables, you get even more modulation possibilities!

    You get 8 sequences with up to 64 steps each to create multiple musical phrases.

    Superfast Envelope
    ADSR envelope generator allows the sharpest attacks or extra-long release times.

    Syncable LFO
    The LFO supplies three waveforms and can run in sync with the Sequencer.

    Fine Tuning
    The MicroBrute SE uses 100% analog VCO's. Although ours are very stable, you may sometimes need to tune your instrument.

    CV/Gate in/out
    Connect your MicroBrute SE with your vintage analog gear.

    Audio in/out
    Process audio through MicroBrute SE; connect it to your favorite devices thanks to its audio input and output as well as MIDI input.
