Arturia Minibrute

MiniBrute is a revolutionary new analog synthesizer from Arturia. Featuring a pure analog signal path and a host of unique features, it sets a new standard for what a hardware synthesizer should be.

Its 100% analog audio signal path features a VCO wave mixer, the classic Steiner-Parker multimode filter, and numerous analog innovations such as the Metalizer, Ultrasaw, and the Brute Factor™. Boasting 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 analog blast anywhere you go.

Bring the Noise

Designed for the analog purist, MiniBrute packs an extraordinary potential for warm and powerful sounds into a very portable design. Loaded with the legendary Steiner-Parker multimode filter, a multi-wave Oscillator and Sub Oscillator, MiniBrute excels at delivering fat bass lines, screaming leads and fascinating sonic experiments.

You can process any external sound through its audio input, making this a powerhouse for adding warmth, grit and filter effects to drums, guitars, and more.

1. Oscillator/Sub:

Sawtooth, Pulse, Triangle waves with unique modifiers. Ultra Saw makes for huge sounds, Metalizer adds complex harmonics to the triangle wave. Sub Osc will rattle the house.

2. Steiner-Parker Multimode Filter:

Beefy filter with Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, and Notch modes. Resonance can be pushed into self oscillation.

3. Brute Factor™:

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

4. Two 4 Stage Envelopes:

ADSR Type Envelope generators with a fast/slow mode allow for the sharpest attacks or for extra long release times.

5. Arpeggiator:

Flexible arpeggiator allows for instant melodic phrases. Syncs to MIDI clock over USB and MIDI In to play in sync with your favorite DAW.

6.Two LFOs:

The main modulation LFO supplies 6 waveforms and can run in sync to the Arpeggiator. Bipolar modulation destinations allow for an amazing variety of sonic possibilites. The Vibrato LFO allows for trills and standard vibrato.

7. Performance Controls:

Mod Wheel & Aftertouch destinations, Glide and Pitch Bend amounts can all be set.

8. Keyboard with Aftertouch:

25-note keyboard with velocity and aftertouch. Octave buttons allow a range of 6 octaves.”

9. Oscillator Mixer:

Allows for mixing the levels of the suboscillator, the individual waveforms of the main oscillator, the noise generator and the external inputs.

10. CV Gate In/Out:

Connect MiniBrute with your vintage analog gear.

11. Audio In/Out:

Process audio through MiniBrute; connect it to your favorite audio devices.

12. MIDI In/Out:

Connect and sync MiniBrute to any DAW or hardware MIDI equipment.

13. USB In/Out:

Control MiniBrute from your DAW or use it as a master keyboard.

Authenticity & Innovation

Developed in partnership with synth guru Yves Usson, MiniBrute comes with brilliant innovations such as the Brute Factor™, Metalizer, Ultrasaw, and full USB, MIDI and CV connectivity for easy integration into any modern or vintage setup.

MiniBrute met its match in the classic Steiner-Parker filter, specially revised by Nyle Steiner himself. It’s arguably the best multimode filter design around, delivering analog warmth with a uniquely raw and aggressive edge.

MiniBrute sets a new standard for excellence with its truly unique sound.

Small yet powerful, affordable but built like a tank, 100% analog from a company known for its digital instruments...everything about MiniBrute seems impossible. But when this synth meets your music, anything is possible.

Oscillator On Steroids


No, there’s no DCO… there’s nothing digital at all in MiniBrute, only a pure VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) for absolute authenticity. MiniBrute’s VCO is classic in its sound and modern in its design, providing 4 simultaneous waveshapes that can be individually mixed with white noise and the external audio input. There’s also a sub-oscillator and several analog signal enhancers such as Metalizer and Ultrasaw, all of which makes for custom waveshapes that no other analog hardware synthesizer can match.

Sub Osc

MiniBrute’s sub-oscillator will generate a sine or square wave as much as two octaves down. It's ready to rattle the house at your command.


Ultrasaw provides shimmering sawtooth waveforms that will considerably enrich the sound.

It basically makes two phase-shifted copies of the raw sawtooth waveform. The copies have ever-evolving phase shifts of their own, and when mixed with the original sawtooth they complement one another.

This results in a lively, rich, bright ensemble effect that can be further enhanced by the modulation rates of the phase-shifted copies. This is the first time a feature like this has been offered in an analog keyboard.


The Metalizer takes the basic triangle waveform, “warping” and “folding” it to create complex, jagged waveforms that are rich in high harmonics. This results in pitched, “metallic” sounds that are ideal for harpsichord- and clavinet-type tones. Dynamic modulation of the warp/fold parameters by an LFO or envelope opens up a realm of “clangorous” sounds that will cut through your mix nicely.

Thanks to its full MIDI/CV/USB connectivity, MiniBrute is designed to fit seamlessly in any modern or vintage studio.

MIDI In/Out:

Use MiniBrute as a master keyboard or a MIDI sound source for your DAW or any other MIDI gear you have. Synchronize MiniBrute's Arpeggiator with an incoming MIDI clock and play in perfect sync with external drum machines, computers, or other MIDI equipment. LFO1 can also lock to the Arpeggiator, allowing for rhythmic Filter, Pitch and Amp modulations that are always in sync.

USB In/Out:

Sequence MiniBrute directly from your computer’s DAW without the need for a separate MIDI interface. MiniBrute can also serve as a USB MIDI controller and as a USB MIDI-to-CV converter: it will translate incoming USB and MIDI data into CV Pitch Out and Gate Out signals, making it a great way to control vintage synths from your computer or MIDI interface.

CV In/Out :

Chain MiniBrute to your vintage or modular synthesizer to get a beefier sound. Control and sequence MiniBrute from your vintage equipment, or use MiniBrute to control your vintage synths (it conforms to the classic 1 Volt per Octave scaling system). You can also use MiniBrute as a MIDI-to-CV converter.

Audio In:

Process any external sound through MiniBrute’s filter, VCA and Brute Factor™ circuit. MiniBrute can be used as an analog powerhouse for adding warmth, grit and filter effects to drums, guitars, vocals, and more. It will alternatively generate automatic bass lines from percussive sounds by switching the Gate source selector to audio.

MiniBrute can also be used as a MIDI-to-CV/Gate converter, establishing a link between your computer-based studio and your vintage gear.
