Rumors have gone wild after Arturia's teaser, and it is now confirmed that the new product of the brand is the MicroBrute synth.

Announced at a price of 299€, the MicroBrute is, just like the MiniBrute, an analog monophonic synth but it is more compact that the Mini version with a 2-octave mini-keyboard. It also retains from the older brother the famous Brute Factor, Metalizer and Ultrasaw, as well as the Steiner-Parker multimode filter.

But the MicroBrute is now just a Micro-copy of the MiniBrute, Arturia replaced the arpeggiator with a step sequencer and the modulation matrix now features a physical 8-connector patch section on the front panel.

Main features:

  • Monophonic analog synthesizer
  • 25 mini-keys
  • Octave Up and Down transposition button
  • LFO with three waves: saw, triangle and square

  • Modulation matrix (1V/Octave) with 8 mini-jacks: Envelope and LFO outputs ; Ultrasaw, Pulse width modulation, Metalizer, Overtone/Sub, Cutoff and Pitch inputs
