Arturia MiniBrute 2S Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer - Special Edition Noir

Semi-modular desktop analog sequencer synthesizer with comprehensive modular patchbay, velocity- and pressure-sensitive performance pads, two oscillators with waveform mixing, and 4-mode analog filter

MFR# 531103

Product Description

Combining the best elements of an analog synthesizer with an intuitive step-sequencer and exciting semi-modular architecture, MiniBrute 2S was made to inspire. Its parameters are clearly laid out and create sound that’s packed with personality and attitude. Its multi-pattern, triple-layer, 64-step sequencer offers exciting new ways of creating music, but takes the pain out of pattern programming. A serious standalone synth, MiniBrute 2S can also be augmented by using its expanded patchbay, and become the center of your modular system.

Hook it up to a RackBrute and keep your whole collection in a stylish, robust Eurorack ecosystem.

A beautifully thought-out sequencing analog synth, an essential link to the modular world, and an instrument that will grow with you. MiniBrute 2S will help you create sounds that no one has ever heard before.

POWERFUL SEMI-MODULAR SYNTHESIZER

A powerful standalone synth, MiniBrute 2S gives you hands-on control, letting you create unique sounds that will set you apart from the crowd. There’s nothing quite like thrill of hearing your sound come to life in your hands; singing as you tweak your VCO waveforms; growling as you ride your LFO; and screaming as you push the Steiner-Parker filter.

Through organic programming with near-infinite possibilities, MiniBrute 2S opens up an exciting universe of sound for you to explore. Giving you ultimate control over a vast array of new and exciting synth options, internal routing, and Eurorack compatibility, this is a synthesizer for musical pioneers.

MODULAR POWERHOUSE

More than the sum of its parts, MiniBrute 2S takes everything you know about synths and turns it upside-down, letting you rewrite the rules. Featuring a comprehensive modulation matrix with dozens of sources and destinations at your disposal, you can start rewiring its signal paths to conjure up truly exciting sounds that have never been heard before.

Although the MiniBrute 2S is an amazingly powerful standalone synthesizer, it urges you to dig deeper. As soon as you start hooking up the included cables to the patchbay, bringing in signals from your modular gear to twist and warp its sound, or sending signals out to add modular layers, you’ll be falling down the rabbit hole of joyous synth invention.

MiniBrute 2S unites the experimental nature of modular gear with the expressive, vital sound of a contemporary analog synth to create a truly awe-inspiring hybrid.

A LABOR OF LOVE

Straight from the minds of Arturia synth master Seb Rochard and industry legend Yves Usson, MiniBrute 2S unites their love of intuitive sequencing with their desire for raw synth power and studio connectivity. Through their effort, Arturia has democratized the world of Eurorack modular and introduced it to a whole new generation of musicians. Are you ready to take the journey with us?

A NEW WAY TO PLAY

By replacing the traditional keyboard interface of the MiniBrute 2S, Arturia’s designers were able to incorporate a powerful, intuitive sequencer section into the synth. Featuring up to 64 steps, 3 layers of depth, and fast, simple, effective sequence generation, MiniBrute 2S gives you synth-sequencing control like no other.

Record up to 64 steps of melody with the main sequencer, and add 2 extra layers of synth parameter control with multiple modes, all editable in real-time as you perform. Involve your whole Eurorack setup by connecting the modular ins and outs, and find new ways to experiment and discover.

Save your favorite patterns, and chain them together to create whole tracks. MiniBrute 2S also features an arpeggiator with multiple modes for when you want to experiment creating fluid chord progressions, and tap tempo, a metronome, and rock-solid sync so you always stay in the groove.

Whatever your creative setup, and whether you’re tracking blistering synth arpeggios into your DAW or sync’ing up to a drum machine in your live rig, MiniBrute 2S will keep your inspiration fired up and give you new creative opportunities.
