    Arturia DrumBrute Key features:



    Analog powerhouse:
    DrumBrute contains 17 fully analog drum & percussion instruments, including two kicks, snare, clap, open & closed hats, high & low toms and conga, maracas, rimshot, clave, tambourine, zap, cymbal, and even a reverse cymbal.


    Exciting synth features: the main output contains a highly regarded two-mode Steiner-Parker filter, allowing you to add dynamic frequency sweeps and satisfying bass drops. Not only that, but every drum sound has multiple parameters that can be tweaked to achieve your perfect kit.

    Easy to use, quick to learn: each one of DrumBrute’s 64 sequences can contain up to 64 steps, and can be chained together in a song mode. Despite this massive performance power, punching in your perfect beat is simple and fast. Fans of vintage drum machines will feel right at home with the familiar layout.

    No menus: every feature has its own dedicated button, knob, or pad, so you’ll spend less time navigating endless sub-menus and more time making music.

    In-depth editing: get in the groove with the natural Swing feature, inspire yourself by dialling in some Randomness, mix up your rhythm with Step Repeat, Roller and Looper functions, accent particular drum hits to add some punch to your beat… DrumBrute has a wealth of advanced features that will satisfy even the most discerning musicians and producers.

    Plays well with others: DrumBrute has extensive connectivity and sync options, including MIDI, Clock, 1PPS, 2PPQ, DIN24, and DIN48. This means that DrumBrute will work seamlessly with all of your other modular, synth, and sequencing gear.

    Amazing in the studio: DrumBrute boasts dedicated audio outputs for each instrument channel giving almost limitless options for external processing and multitrack recording; 3.5mm and ¼” headphone outputs so you’ll never have to hunt out an adapter again; and it can act as a fully-fledged MIDI interface to control your DAW. DrumBrute is an essential tool for the modern producer.

    Reliable on stage: with rugged housing, chunky pads, and wiggle-free knobs, DrumBrute can be relied upon to perform show after show. Always striving to improve with every new release, Arturia have created a strong, enduring instrument that’s ready for life on the road.

    Punches above its weight: DrumBrute stands toe-to-toe with the leading drum synths on the market, but at a fraction of the price. No other all-analog drum machine features such inspiring and dynamic features while retaining a sense of intuitive, tactile fun.
    ----------------------------------------------------
    DrumBrute is priced at 449€ / $499.

    DrumBrute will shortly be shipping, and will be arriving at your local music store in November. DrumBrute is available to order now from the official Arturia web store, and from retailers worldwide.

    Despite sort of ticking all the boxes I somehow found this pretty tame sounding and a bit "meh" overall...dunno why, exactly. Still, the price point is enticing and I'm sure this'll find lots of buyers/users. Arturia's build quality has been a bit suspect in the past, but let's hope this fares a bit better on that front.

    I kind of liked the sounds. Which is saying something, because generally I'm not into those kinds of sounds. Which is why I'm probably not their ideal consumer. And there are cheaper alternatives now. But if I was in the market, I suppose I'd have to investigate it further...

    I don't think there's anything cheaper that's comparable with this, though - the TR-8 is probably the closest thing, even if it's not actually analog. Maybe the MFB Tanzmaus & Tanzbär Lite are somewhat close, but not as fully featured. I guess I'd be more excited if I didn't have the Analog Rytm already

    Maybe you could post a quick video on the Analog Rytm sometime? I'd love to hear it and how you use it in your productions.

    Hope the build quality isn't going to be an issue over time.
    I would think though, that everyone will post process or add something at the end.

    There's a higher percentage that would mess with the individual outs, but who knows.
    It's either LIVE or in STUDIO.


    For live, yeah that would be the sound...


    Kicks, I've never really had a problem, it's always the snares that end up being a problem.
    Which means I usually have to layer something.

    Oh this has been grabbed. Haven't been able to get to it too often yet.
    Great piece.
