Arturia MiniBrute Red Special Edition Full-Blast Analog Synthesizer
Arturia MiniBrute Red100% analog synthesizer is designed for studio recording and live-performance applications. This hardware unit features an analog monophonic signal chain and sports a hands-on user interface for controlling synthesis and modulation parameters. It utilizes a voltage-controlled oscillator to build custom waveforms by mixing triangle waves, square waves, sawtooth waves, white noise, and external audio signals.
For signal enhancement, the unit includes a pulse-width modulation knob for creating a chorus effect, as well as an Ultrasaw circuit that creates two phase-shifting copies of the original sawtooth waveform. These effects can be combined and folded into the original signal to enrich your timbre. A Brute Factor modulation control adds distortion to the signal, while a Metalizer circuit can be used to warp/fold the triangular waveform to add upper harmonics, thus engendering metallic tones suitable for harpsichord and clavinet-type sounds. If the bottom end is what you desire, a sub-oscillator section can be used to build deep bass lines for making electronic music, hip hop, and more.
What's more, the unit includes two digital LFOs which can be synchronized externally. One LFO is dedicated to creating a vibrato effects and trills. The other LFO offers six waveforms, bi-polar modulation, and can be routed to several destinations on the synthesizer simultaneously. The MiniBrute Red also includes two attack, decay, sustain, and release filters and a Steiner Parker 2-pole multimode filter which can route oscillators - as well as external audio inputs - through low-pass, band-pass, high-pass, and notch filters.
Fun and inspiring all-analog monophonic synthesizer that makes sound creation a blast
25-note keyboard with velocity, aftertouch, pitch, and modulation wheels
Unique design developed in partnership with synth guru Yves Usson
100% analog signal path - no digital controls or menus
Multi-wave oscillator section features 3 different waveforms, a sub-octave generator, and a white noise generator
2 unique oscillator types, Ultrasaw and Metalizer, give you unexplored sonic territory to play with
External input lets you blend in sources such as vocals and guitars
