Taking roots on the long-standing history of classic drum machines it builds on the look and sound of the ‘Brute’ franchise. DrumBrute offers seventeen true analog sounds, unique performance effects, modern step sequencer, ease of use, and great connectivity. For the last five years we’ve constantly been asking the dealers which product they expected from Arturia. The very most frequent answer has always been: “an analog drum machine”. They asked, we listened: a new analog classic is born! We hope you’re as excited as we are!
DrumBrute is not only about creating a beat: it’s also about tweaking it and making it evolve in real time! DrumBrute adds loads of innovative features like our Step Repeat, Pattern Looper, Mute/Solo groups, song mode, Randomness and Swing functions per track. Finger drummers will love the ability to play quantised or semi-quantised on ultra sensitive pads.
