Arturia - 'MiniBrute 2'
Semi-Modular Analogue Synthesizer

arturia minibrute2

Wired Analog MutantThe Arturia MiniBrute 2 has developed from the iconic monosynth that changed the analog scene using mixable waveforms, Steiner-Parker filter, and Brute Factor. Now featuring semi-modular architecture, you can experiment further and experience its raw power into the world of Eurorack modular format.

Since the beginning of electronic instruments, synthesizers have extended and enhanced the possibilities available to musicians. Arturia have continued this approach with the sound of their new instrument along with the synthesizer itself. The Minibrute 2 features a huge sound whilst still compact, self-contained and versatile. An instrument proven to be both comprehensive and evolving.

A Small Beast With A Powerful Voice

arturia minibrute2

Exciting FeaturesOnce looking at the front panel of the MiniBrute 2, you’ll notice the newly iconic Brute oscillators, the acidic Steiner-Parker filter, and the chaotic Brute Factor knob that quickly became the signature Arturia synth element for many fans.

After further inspection, past the usual modulation sources and controls, you’ll find some exciting, unexpected features: a second VCO; a second LFO; new VCO and Filter frequency modulation possibilities; modifier-related modulation destinations; a brand new, loopable AD envelope. When you’re familiar, this beast will reveal the full range of its vocalizations, such as the raging leads and piercing sequences, along with smooth pads and purring bass.

Master of Adaption

arturia minibrute2

A Polymorph With A Pack InstinctAs a result of its huge CV/Gate patch bay, you can redesign and restructure your MiniBrute 2 at any time. The synth is semi-modular, even with no patch leads connected, and each of its features has already been intelligently routed. If you want to start decomposing the sound and experimenting, you will find direct, 100% safe access to the MiniBrute 2’s genetic code at the right of its front panel.

The possibilities are practically unlimited, and even more so if you have CV/Gate-enhanced gear and Eurorack modules to welcome into the pack. You can modulatie the Metalizer amount to an audio pulse, have the AD envelope affecting its own decay to make it sharper and affecting the VCO1 FM amount with the LFO.

From The Heart To The Hands

arturia minibrute2

The brainchild of Arturia’s daring product manager Seb Rochard, born on the foundations of synth guru Yves Usson's unique approach to synthesis, MiniBrute 2 is truly designed and built by musicians for musicians. Every element of the synth, from its layout to the carefully chosen components, reflects their obsession to provide the most adaptable and enjoyable analog synth around. Here's a look at some of the controls and what they do...

VCO 1Sawtooth, Pulse and Triangle waves with unique modifiers and direct FM control. Ultra Saw makes for huge sounds, Metalizer adds complex harmonics to the triangle wave. FM generates rich tones.

VCO 2Selectable waveform between sine, saw and square. Multiple tuning modes for fine, coarse or LFO operation.

Oscillator MixerAllows for mixing the levels of the individual waveforms of the oscillator 1 and 2, the noise generator and the external inputs.

Steiner-Parker Multimode FilterBeefy filter with Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, and Notch modes. Resonance can be pushed into self oscillation.

4 Stage EnvelopeADSR Type Envelope generator.

Brute Factor™The Brute Factor™ can add subtle drive effects to full blown intermodulation havoc.

AD EnvelopeThis modulator can generate AD, AHR or loopable envelopes. Its Attack and Decay times are CV-controllable, too.

Patchbay48 CV inputs and outputs to control many elements of the synthesizer and sequencer. Some utility modules provide extended possibilities.

Two LFOsBoth LFO supply 6 waveforms and can run in sync to the Sequencer. Very fast rates can be obtained.

Sequencer/ArpeggiatorFlexible sequencer or arpeggiator allows for instant melodic phrases. Syncs to MIDI clock over USB and MIDI In to play in sync with your favorite DAW.

Performance ControlsMod Wheel & Aftertouch destinations and Pitch Bend amounts can all be set.
