Strike the first blow
Create your perfect kit using the best analog sounds. Every single one of the seventeen drum and percussion parts is 100% analog, and carries the savage DNA of Arturia's Brute synth family. DrumBrute is fully polyphonic, so all of its sounds can be played simultaneously and twisted by the nasty two-mode 12dB Steiner-Parker filter. Soft, sharp, pure, trashy or devastating — DrumBrute lets you create an exciting, personal sound palette that will electrify your music.
Absolute rhythm mastermind
A collection of 17 distinct analog drum instruments; an advanced 64-step drum sequencer with song mode; a polyrhythmic, step-repeat glitch machine; a performance powerhouse and sequence looper — DrumBrute is all of this. It can also act as your creative hub, as its vast connectivity allows you to output different sections of your mix separately, and connect to all your existing studio & performance gear with USB, MIDI, and clock I/O. More than the sum of its parts, DrumBrute combines the technical perfection of studio gear with the excitement of a playable instrument
Workflow on overdrive
Every feature and detail in DrumBrute has been designed to amplify your creative flow. Producing? DrumBrute makes shaping your sound and building your rhythmic patterns a breeze. Performing? DrumBrute gives you massive connectivity and vital control. Every function is immediately accessible from the front panel. No dropdown menus, no waste of time.
17 pure analog drum sounds
DrumBrute is all analog, all the time, with two flavors of kick drums, wide-ranging snare and clap settings, two hi-hats with separate tone and decay controls, and more. DrumBrute offers a wider sound palette than any other analog drum machine on the market.
64 patterns with up to 64 steps
Easily create your own patterns by using the STEP and ACCENT buttons or play them in real-time from the pads. The looper lets you instantly modify your beat and create real-time pattern effects, making this the perfect performance drum machine.
You can listen to and mix all your drums via the MIX output or you can remove them from the mix by connecting to the individual outs. This allows for external processing of each sound.
Swing can be global or per drum. This gives your music a feel and groove that will light up the dance floors.
Randomness can be applied to all instruments globally or to individual tracks. This ranges from adding small variations to change the feel, to huge variations generating crazy, random patterns for more experimental music.
The Steiner-Parker filter on the output allows you to create interesting sweeps and do on-the-fly tricks like dropping out the bass and emphasizing the highs, ready to kick in the low end at a moment’s notice.
With USB, MIDI, and our trademark clock & DIN sync I/O, you can connect to almost any device on the market today.
