Arturia Announces the DrumBrute Analog Drum Machine & Sequencer


drumbrute_topArturia are excited to announce the arrival of DrumBrute – a 100% analog
drum machine & sequencer designed with performance and in-depth sound
editing at its heart.

The newest member of Arturia’s Brute family, DrumBrute is a powerful
beat-making instrument that carries the savage DNA of the MicroBrute,
MiniBrute, and MatrixBrute.

Key features of the Arturia DrumBrute include:

* 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

* 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.
