Arturia MiniBrute SE

Special Sequencer Edition

MiniBrute is a revolutionary analogue synthesizer from Arturia that redefined the price/performance/sound ratio of modern synths. Updated with a new Step sequencer and stylish good looks, the MiniBrute SE is designed to perform.

Full-blast Analogue Synthesizer

Its 100% analogue audio signal path features a VCO wave mixer, the classic Steiner-Parker multimode filter, as well as numerous analogue innovations such as the Metalizer, Ultrasaw, and the Brute Factor™. Boasting a complete MIDI, CV and USB connectivity, MiniBrute is right at home with your computer or your vintage synths, making it the ideal companion to deliver a pure analogue blast anywhere you go.

Press a key & it plays a little melody

The new step sequencer transforms the MiniBrute SE. You get 6 sequences with up to 64 steps each to create multiple musical phrases.

The sequencer can do more than just play back your sequences though. You can create new musical phrases out of your existing ones by flipping the playback modes, gate timing and swing settings in real time from the front panel. The new sequencing functions are a force multiplier for inspiring new musical ideas and creating exciting live performances.

Brutal Analogue

The MiniBrute SE features the same great pure analogue design as the original MiniBrute. Its analogue VCOs give pure warm analogue sound that can be soft and subtle or hard and brutal. Brute offers our complex and versatile oscillator design that can sound as classic or as wild as you can imagine. Add to this monster tone generator an amazing Steiner-Parker filter that gives the MiniBrute SE its unique character.

With the added Brute factor in the filter section, you have a lethal combination that will put your speakers through their paces. Add the 2 wide range LFOs, 2 envelopes, pitch bend, mod wheels, aftertouch and the new step sequencer - and you have a synth with a lifetime of sound design inside it.

Hands-On Heaven

Forget about tiny LCD screens, forget about menus and sub-menus, forget about double functions and complex control. Minibrute brings back the fun and the immediate hands-on experience of synthesis.

You want to make it stronger? Grab the sub-osc slider and move it up. You want it brighter? Grab the filter cutoff knob and turn it up. You want your sound to grow fangs and snarl like a beast? Grab the Brute Factor™ knob and turn it up! It’s that easy.
