    USE

    Special mention to the manual, both simple, clear, comprehensive and didactic.

    I never use plugs included in the box to record the sound setting. With a little experience we find very quickly that we seek. The absence of memory and preset is in my opinion a quality that requires the user to be creative all the time.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds they agree your style of music? This is my first MiniBrute analog synthesizer. From the classical guitar, I adapt MiniBrute of sounds with guitar sounds to create a happy marriage. Having no other analog synthesizer, I have no material to compare. However it is clear that I no longer will touch one VSTi: turn the knobs to search or discover a sound is so enjoyable, and analog grain definitely bury any digital software.

    Are they realistic? Given the nature of the machine, do not expect to get out of the sounds imitating certain instruments of the orchestra. Even if one can roughly imitate the sound of a clarinet, it will look more like a clarinet sound out of a Game Boy instead of the Berlin Philharmonic. But the interest is not there, in fact, the sound palette of MiniBrute only matched by the imagination of the man behind the instrument. It is quite fun and instructive to try to imitate sounds known: wind, cow, cat, R2D2, a fly on the floor dying after taking a pschit insecticide in the face ...

    Are the effects effective and responsive? There are no built-in effect in the MiniBrute, personally I just sticks it a slight reverb and that's enough.

    Expression is it good? The two dials and aftertouch allow nice expressiveness, especially since they are adjustable. The keyboard is nice although there is two octaves.

    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? Very good for bass, lead the beep, the squeaker, the BRRrraaaowOOoaoowwaoWw ... This synthesizer can be a monster if you push a little fader and knobs, especially the raw torque factor / filter. But it can also be very soft and this is what I enjoy most. It should not place undue reliance on demonstration videos that abound on the Internet; they do not reflect a comprehensive view of the instrument. Too often the demonstrators push the fader thoroughly, abusing the gross factor and Metalizer modulates excessive, while with a little finesse in the settings, the resulting sound becomes much more interesting and musical. Anyway, it depends what you trying to do too; In short, the MiniBrute can make music as noise.


    NOTICE GLOBAL

    How long have you use it? For six months. Daily.

    What thing do you like most and least?

    Positives: Steiner Parker filter characteristic, the gross factor, the mixer waveform, the enrichment of waves, the sub oscillator, envelopes, many possible modulations, grain, general architecture, fact that there is no preset or memory and finally the price.

    The bad: the arpeggiator that I never use (although it is quite complete); I do not think I will use more of a sequencer (as available on SE). The cutoff control the aftertouch is probably improved. That's it for the negative.

    Have you tried many other models before buying it? I knew that the old school synth emulations performed by Arturia, and no, I'd never put my finger on a real analog synth.

    How would you rate the quality / price? Unbeatable!
    I should note that I am unfortunately fell on a defective keyboard when my purchase in January 2014. After a few lines, a touch peeling of the entire keyboard but still playable. This defect only affected one set of production and the problem is now resolved. But it allowed me to have to do the service of the company has been able to show fast and efficient.

    With experience, you do again this choice? Yes, without hesitation.

    Besides, like this, by the way, if the team could lay Arturia us maxibrute, SuperBrute, mégabrute or gigabrute with why not: an additional tilt désaccordable a ring modulator, a keyboard 3 (or 3.5) octaves, a modular part, especially not polyphony or paraphonie thing here, no! So, if something like that out in the future, they could be sure, and some sell at least one.

    The utility can be downloaded via the site ARTURIA free and easily and it is relatively basic: choose the midi channel input and output, 3 type of response to the keyboard, the game mode ...
    As for controllers on the front panel, I leave it to you to read their descriptions via prior reviews and testing synthwalker.
    The MiniBrute a small monophonic analog without memory effect, but with a strong personality ...

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration of MiniBrute is the highlight of small analog ARTURIA home. The pitches are very well thought out:
    Far left top: the pitch bend wheel and the modulation and below the octave selectors. Then follow the VCO section, the VCF and VCA. All right, 3 knob, the dreaded brutalizer, the knob for the headphone volume and the overall volume. Below you have a knob for the tune. It is recommended to heat the MiniBrute few moments then adjust the tuning as our good old guitars ...
    Below this first table, adjusting the modulation wheel, vibrato and aftertouch. Then a LFO part and a basic arpeggiator but can already have fun.
    In short ergonomics is the highlight of the MiniBrute. Button = a function and everything is logical. Editing sounds is therefore very fast.
    The manual, I have not opened yet ... it said.
    The MiniBrute is also sold with sheets to record their favorite sounds but I think once mastered, everything is done in 30 seconds by my watch ...

    SOUNDS

    Sounds are obviously not realistic and the result of your imagination. The MiniBrute is great for FX, leads, evolving rhythmic patterns. I would say the bass is not as punchy as a moog.
    It may be more than one type MS20 synth but again, the punch is not closer.
    But beware, I do not go down the MiniBrute which has excellent sound with a very wide range of sounds from his silky tones to more undue via brutalizer or Metalizer. Both knobs are a great addition I find sibilance beautiful is obtained. The Ultrasaw is also beautiful.
    honors also to comprehensive LFO that syncs to the arpeggiator. One begins to play the new Klaus Schulze ....

    OVERALL OPINION

    It's been two days since I possess. I wanted to add more color to my analog kronos.
    The MiniBrute puzzled me a lot of time with his two octaves. And here I must say that it is always a downer for me. 3 would have been a minimum. Not easy to test riffs of my favorite songs on this keyboard without using more or less skillfully octave transpose buttons.
    As against the MiniBrute opens the way to all the trials and there can applaud with both hands. This is a synth designed for this, we do not waste time with any menus, the result is obtained immediately. Sounds really stand out and have a real life side.
    I just spent my afternoon to pass its signal to the internal effects of Kronos, and there is the big delusion.
    I am very happy with this purchase. The MiniBrute is in my opinion a first entry into the world of analog with real personality, ease of use evident that allows all possible experiments. It is finally open to the outside synth: steering noon opening to digital or the modular world. The choice is in your court. Congratulations ARTURIA.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds they suit your style of music? This is my first MiniBrute analog synthesizer. From the classical guitar, I adapt sounds MiniBrute sounding guitar to create a happy marriage. With no other analog synthesizer, I have no material to compare. However, it is obvious that I will touch more now one VSTi: turn the knobs to find or discover a sound is so enjoyable, and grain of analog definitively buries any digital software.
    Are they realistic? Given the nature of the machine, do not expect to get sounds imitating some realistic orchestral instruments. Even if we can roughly play the sound of a clarinet, it will be more the impression that a lot of Game Boy that of the Berlin Philharmonic. But the interest is not, in fact, the sound palette MiniBrute is matched the imagination of the man behind the instrument. It is quite amusing and instructive to try to imitate known sounds: wind, cow, cat, R2D2, a fly on the ground in agony after taking a pschit insecticide in the face ...
    The effects are they effective and responsive? There are no embedded in the MiniBrute effect, personally I just glue it a slight reverb and that's enough.
    The expression is good? The two knobs and aftertouch allow a beautiful expression, especially as they are configured. The keyboard is nice although there is two octaves.
    What are the sounds you prefer, you hate? Very good for bass, leads, beeps, the party blower, the BRRrraaaowOOoaoowwaoWw ... This synthesizer can be a real monster if you push a little fader and knobs, especially the raw torque factor / filter. But it can also be very soft and this is what I enjoy most. Should not place undue reliance on demonstration videos that abound on the Internet; they do not reflect a comprehensive view of the instrument. Too often demonstrators push fader background of abuse and gross factor metalizer modulate excessive, then with a little finesse in the settings, the resulting sound becomes much more interesting and musical. In short, the MiniBrute can make music as noise.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it? For six months. Daily.
    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    The positives: the Steiner Parker filter characteristic, the gross factor, the mixer waveforms enhancers wave, the sub oscillator envelopes, many possible modulations, grain, general architecture, fact that there be no preset or memory and finally the price.
    Cons: the arpeggiator that I never use (although it is fairly complete); I do not think I will use more of a sequencer (as available on the SE). All this is very personal. Control cutoff by aftertouch is probably improved. That's it for the negative.
    Have you tried many other models before buying it? I knew that old school synth emulations performed by Arturia, and no, I never put fingers on a real analog synth.
    How would you rate the quality / price? Unbeatable!
    I want to note that I am unfortunately stumbled upon a faulty keyboard on my purchase in January 2014. After a few lines, a button off from the entire keyboard while remaining playable. This defect only affected one set of production and the problem is now set for the new units. But it allowed me to have to do the service of the company has been able to show fast and efficient.
    With experience, you do again this choice? Yes, without hesitation.
    Moreover, like that, by the way, if Arturia team we could lay a maxibrute, SuperBrute, mégabrute or gigabrute with why not: a désaccordable additional tilt, a ring modulator, a keyboard 3 (or 3.5) octaves, a modular part, especially not polyphonic or paraphonie thingy there, no! So, if something like that came out in the future, they could be safe and some to sell at least one.

    See the previous reviews and the internet!

    The features that I like:
    - Noon via USB.
    - Audio-in.
    - The synced LFO clock pm (via arpégateur).
    - Aftertouch

    UTILIZATION

    It is an analog synth with all its buttons, as is often said, a Function button.
    This is partly true, because there are certain parameters that must be configured by software, but this is the kind of parameters that rule once (Velocity curve, midi channel ...). Personally, I used the software once, to see what it was, I did nothing to change the configuration.

    SOUNDS

    So yes in MiniBrute, he brute there, but not that ...
    Let me explain, it's easy to get big sound gross turning all the knobs to 11, but it is capable of much more than that.
    Already just do not push the faders of the mixer wave background made much change response of the filter.
    I love it for bass and leads. I experimented a bit FX, but as I put very little in the music I make, I can not really judge. As is with monophonic, we forget the pads and strings. But as the beast has an audio input, you can always route a software synthesizer (or hardware) that plays chords and let him enjoy the MiniBrute filter!
    About the filter is not moog or the korg is what really gives its particularity. It may look like a SH101 in terms of sound architecture, but the sound is very different. This is simply because the element that will most define the sound of a synth is its filter (for subtractive synthesis course).

    OVERALL OPINION

    It will now make a little more than 6 months that I have, and really, I'm tired. It has been some time overshadowed by a Volca Bass in my set-up. Inevitably, it is always the last in which to receive more attention :) But in terms of synthesis is totally different, more versatile.
    I strongly advice to anyone wishing to learn synthesis, and also to all the world for sonnorité of the beast.
    A little trick that I like, and I just started to really use is the audio input. Lately I'm having to send a software synth audio-in and I triturated with its filter and LFO MiniBrute (synchronized with the clock pm), a bit of a gross factor to heat or add fat and sends it! Razor Native Intruments has never been so hot :)

    The Minibrute is a monophonic analog synthesizer.
    Lightweight keyboard with aftertouch 2 octaves. Even if it seems weak it is rather comfortable.
    Steiner Parker, the VCO block and boosted the gross factor filter gives a unique sound to the beast.
    2 envelope generators and 2 LFOs.
    A pitch bend and modulation wheel can control the filter, LFO Amount or vibrato.
    The rear panel is well supplied: An Input and Audio Output, MIDI IN and OUT entries and CV / Gate and USB outputs. An app is downloadable on the site arturia
    No memory but there are records to note the location of the knobs / faders

    UTILIZATION

    The use of synth is very simple ideal for learning analog synthesis.
    You get used to quickly

    SOUNDS

    Grain Minibrute makes him a unique synthesizer. The sounds can be aggressive and sweet, warm, round and colorful. It has its own personality and even a soul. The possibilities are varied sounds. There is nothing better than to add some effects to highlight.
    The aftertouch is not really useful to me.
    It is comfortable for leads and bass through the sub-oscillator and the gross factor

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for more than 3 months and I am delighted. I tried the ms 20 mini but I preferred the Minibrute. Easier to use and I fell in love with modifiers signals and the gross factor.
    The value for money is excellent is one of the biggest benefits of Arturia products.
    "With experience, you do again this choice?"
    How could I remake this choice as I do not separate: D
    Finally, I would say that this synth is a bomb that perfectly complements my little home studio as my first analog

    UTILIZATION

    Intutif very pleasant to program, because all the controls are on the front panel to reach. You can play with one hand by changing are aWith the other hand (or modulate both hands if the MIDI synth is controlled)
    It's really good to play the MiniBrute.
    on the other hand, there is no memory, so it should be noted if the settings have wants to find.
    The manual is very clear to anyone who has ever had a synth analogioque hands.

    SOUNDS

    Great sound (s!) for electro, rock, funk, rap, reggae, dub ... Lets soft sounds and vintage, are the aggressive and modern ...

    I use it mostly for reggae dub bass lines so 80's King Jammy's, Doughie Wardrop ... and for FXs and analog percussion. The filter, the noise and the "gross factor" (saturation feedback sound in the filter) are really cool about it.
    The 12dB HP / LP / BP / notch filter is "grainy" it has character! (You can also have smooth sounds, you worry!)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very good purchase for a first analog if you start (compare his sound and a moog filter, a DSI, MFB Vermona ... or else to be on the sound you want!).
    Perfect complement other analog or softwares (incomparable!), I put a 9/10 for build quality, which is a cheap Studio Electronics or a Moog for example.
    Good value for money! go!

    type 25 keys keyboard synth so plastic velocity not terrible

    Many sounds can be a bit of everything I used for one-shots in ppppssssyy-trance mode, fxs, leads, wicked sounds GGGrrrrRRR! :)

    for controls, see the specs it's too boring to write

    the many and varied connectors are significant, noon-fiage is great for those who, like me, many digital bossent with a DAW and plugs

    only regret monophonic so no pads, only "simple" sounds

    + other: French, supporting the top, accessible and vast sonic palette, no memory (= more creativity, surprises, develops a taste for sound design and an aversion to the systematic use of presets in plugins )

    Monophonic analog synthesizer with only one oscillator, non-dynamic keyboard (except as midi controller) with aftertouch, 1 LFO, arpeggiator 1, no memory and that's it.

    Very easy to use for someone who has experience in programming, we can find the sound you want, but he's made has only one oscillator is can not ask the moon either ...
    We find various vintage sounds pleasantly with another more modern personality.
    Editing sounds is easy, but as there is no memory and the buttons are very sensitive it is difficult even taking a photo to find the exact sound that has been set, it must rely more has ears that view.

    Editing sounds is easy, but as there is no memory and the buttons are very sensitive it is difficult even taking a photo to find the exact sound that has been set, it must rely more has ears that view.
    So for me its use will be primarily in the studio, I have too much to handle live sound, I do not have time to program patches between songs because I play all the time.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is round, very colorful, I find it best as lead synth & FX, and a little less good as a bass, but it is a matter of taste, I like the light touch with aftertouch very nice play, too bad there was only two octaves, three would have been perfect for the type of sound produced by the MiniBrute.

    There is only one oscillator but MiniBrute covers a wide range of sounds despite knowing that some sounds will never be possible to make this done.

    A little flat for me I think the filter envelope does not slap very strongly, although it can be fast, but not suitable for sound type (acid), I would say that sounds MiniBrute + soft and not too gross to made which does not displease me.

    Personally I find it very appropriate in relation to the round envelopes to make sounds funky 70 or early 80's new wave.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought a few days ago and I already see these limits as these qualities, the sound is very accurate in the settings, I like a little less than its slightly soft shells and especially the made that there have not backup sounds (in 2013), I thought a quick and easy solution to store my patches for now is i-phone + application to write the name on the photo and then integrate them into a folder in computer, a little long but effective after it is always adjusted to the ear as sound as I said above the knobs have a little run and very accurate, difficult to find the exact sound as the had left but you get raproche strongly anyway.

    I lay still an overall score of 9 because the interface is flawless, the sound is in the top of the dish, the quality is very good, the touch keyboard is very nice, the sound palette is very broad and include colors full of vintage keyboards before 2000.

    A little extra is the syncro by usb arpeggiator and LFO at the same time! Yum ^ ^
    And excellent mixer section of the oscillator and the speed to get the sound that was in my head as long as it is not very complicated and vintage and finally the overall sound of minibrut is how to say music ranging from very soft to very soft and straight forward drive of all integrated perfectly in the mix.
