For the NAMM 2018, ARTURIA launched the MiniBrute 2 & 2S analog Synthesizer. The successor of the well-known MiniBrute now comes with a second oscillator, a semi-modular architecture and much more. I got the opportunity to take a closer look at the MiniBrute 2 keyboard edition.

What’s exciting, every buyer gets the ARTURIA Cook Book, a hardcover book where you can find various sounds to re-program. These example sounds helps you to understand the complete engine as well as give you interesting ideas to craft own sounds.

In a first video I look at the first 10 sounds from the Cook Book.

  • Fully analog signal path
  • 2 multi-waveform voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs)
  • VCO1: Sawtooth, square, and triangle waveforms (VCO 1)
  • Ultrasaw, Metalizer, and pulse width modulation (PWM)
  • VCO2: Sawtooth, square, and sine waveforms
  • FM modulation between oscillators
  • Random noise generator
  • Steiner-Parker multimode filter with FM and RM (Resonance Modulation)
  • 48-point patchbay
  • Hard sync input for VCO1
  • Separate VCA for modulation routings
  • Two envelopes: ADSR (filter) and AD (amplitude)
  • Loopable AD envelope
  • Two multi-waveform LFOs with free-run or sync modes
  • Brute Factor: overdrive the filter input with the audio output
  • External audio can be routed through the Oscillator mixer or directly to the output
  • Sequencer and arpeggiator, syncable to external clock: MIDI, USB, or CLK (1 step, 1 pulse, 24/48 ppq)
  • MIDI input and output connectors
  • USB port for use with a DAW
  • Audio and headphone outputs
  • Use with Arturia’s MIDI Control Center for device configuration and sequence archival
