Arturia MiniBrute 2S
The Arturia Minibrute 2S is an award winning analog synthesiser with a highly versatile step sequencer. The top part of the Arturia Minibrute 2S is a synthesiser section that includes 2 oscillators, 2 LFO's and a whole range of other features, while the bottom part is the sequencer section that has 64 sequence memories and allows you to chain sequences. The Arturia Minibrute 2S also includes MIDI in and out so you can connect the Arturia Minibrute 2S to any DAW or other MIDI hardware equipment.
An exciting evolution in the MiniBrute story, MiniBrute 2S stays true to the raw sound-shaping power of the iconic original, while adding thrilling new features and possibilities.
Combining the best elements of an analog synthesizer with an intuitive step-sequencer and exciting semi-modular architecture, MiniBrute 2S was made to inspire. Its parameters are clearly laid out and create sound thats packed with personality and attitude. Its multi-pattern, triple-layer, 64-step sequencer offers exciting new ways of creating music, but takes the pain out of pattern programming. A serious standalone synth, MiniBrute 2S can also be augmented by using its expanded patchbay, and become the center of your modular system. Hook it up to a RackBrute and keep your whole collection in a stylish, robust Eurorack ecosystem.
A beautifully thought-out sequencing analog synth, an essential link to the modular world, and an instrument that will grow with you. MiniBrute 2S will help you create sounds that no one has ever heard before.
Et Tu, Brute?
Fans of the original MiniBrute will instantly fall in love with the familiar controls and signal flow, but this synth has an exciting new sound that it cant wait for the world to discover.
A powerful standalone synth, MiniBrute 2S gives you hands-on control, letting you create unique sounds that will set you apart from the crowd. Theres nothing quite like thrill of hearing your sound come to life in your hands; singing as you tweak your VCO waveforms; growling as you ride your LFO; and screaming as you push the Steiner-Parker filter. Through organic programming with near-infinite possibilities, MiniBrute 2S opens up an exciting universe of sound for you to explore.
Giving you ultimate control over a vast array of new and exciting synth options, internal routing, and Eurorack compatibility, this is a synthesizer for musical pioneers.
Bringing the power of Eurorack modular to a new generation of musicians, MiniBrute 2S is truly a synth for the modular age.
More than the sum of its parts, MiniBrute 2S takes everything you know about synths and turns it upside-down, letting you rewrite the rules. Featuring a comprehensive modulation matrix with dozens of sources and destinations at your disposal, you can start rewiring its signal paths to conjure up truly exciting sounds that have never been heard before.
Although the MiniBrute 2S is an amazingly powerful standalone synthesizer, it urges you to dig deeper. As soon as you start hooking up the included cables to the patchbay, bringing in signals from your modular gear to twist and warp its sound, or sending signals out to add modular layers, youll be falling down the rabbit hole of joyous synth invention.
MiniBrute 2S unites the experimental nature of modular gear with the expressive, vital sound of a contemporary analog synth to create a truly awe-inspiring hybrid.
A Labour of Love
MiniBrute 2S isnt merely a product, its an obsession, a journey, and a commitment to give you one of the most rewarding synth experiences possible.
Straight from the minds of Arturia synth master Seb Rochard and industry legend Yves Usson, MiniBrute 2S unites their love of intuitive sequencing with their desire for raw synth power and studio connectivity. Through their effort, Arturia has democratized the world of Eurorack modular and introduced it to a whole new generation of musicians. Are you ready to take the journey with us?
Sawtooth, Pulse and Triangle waves with unique modifiers and direct FM control. Ultra Saw makes for huge sounds, Metalizer adds complex harmonics to the triangle wave. FM generates rich tones.
Selectable waveform between sine, saw and square. Multiple tuning modes for fine, coarse or LFO operation.
Allows for mixing the levels of the individual waveforms of the oscillator 1 and 2, the noise generator and the external inputs.
Steiner-Parker Multimode Filter
Beefy filter with Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, and Notch modes. Resonance can be pushed into self oscillation.
4 Stage Envelope
ADSR Type Envelope generator.
The Brute Factor can add subtle drive effects to full blown intermodulation havoc.
This modulator can generate AD, AHR or loopable envelopes. Its Attack and Decay times are CV-controllable, too.
48 CV inputs and outputs to control many elements of the synthesizer and sequencer. Some utility modules provide extended possibilities.
Both LFO supply 6 waveforms and can run in sync to the Sequencer. Very fast rates can be obtained.
3-track, 64-step sequencer
The sequencer controls Pitch, Gate, Velocity and Pressure. Use Seq 2 or Seq 3 to generate other types of signals : Gates, CV, Pitch, LFOs, Envelopes. Real-time and step editing are available.
Pads and Encoders
16 Pressure and Velocity sensitive pads can be used as a keyboard or to enter steps in the sequence. Encoders are used to edit the values for each step.
64 pattern memories are available, organized in four banks. Create a chain of patterns to build longer patterns or even full songs.
Synchronize to external MIDI, USB or analog clock.
Generate arpeggios on the keys or loop a portion of the sequence. Everything stays in sync when you exit the loop, perfect for performance.
Line and headphones outputs.
Connect and sync MiniBrute to any DAW or hardware MIDI equipment.
Control MiniBrute from your DAW or use it as a master keyboard
A New Way to Play
MiniBrute 2S introduces a new way to play, and fresh sequencing possibilities that are guaranteed to fuel your creativity.
By replacing the traditional keyboard interface of the MiniBrute 2S, Arturias designers were able to incorporate a powerful, intuitive sequencer section into the synth. Featuring up to 64 steps, 3 layers of depth, and fast, simple, effective sequence generation, MiniBrute 2S gives you synth-sequencing control like no other.
Record up to 64 steps of melody with the main sequencer, and add 2 extra layers of synth parameter control with multiple modes, all editable in real-time as you perform. Involve your whole Eurorack setup by connecting the modular ins and outs, and find new ways to experiment and discover. Save your favorite patterns, and chain them together to create whole tracks. MiniBrute 2S also features an arpeggiator with multiple modes for when you want to experiment creating fluid chord progressions, and tap tempo, a metronome, and rock-solid sync so you always stay in the groove.
Whatever your creative setup, and whether youre tracking blistering synth arpeggios into your DAW or syncing up to a drum machine in your live rig, MiniBrute 2S will keep your inspiration fired up and give you new creative opportunities.
