Arturia Minibrute 2 Noir Black – Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer
The Arturia Minibrute 2 Noir Black is a Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer with a 25-key velocity and pressure-sensitive keyboard. It has evolved from the legendary monosynth that revolutionized the analog scene. It offered mixable waveforms, Steiner-Parker filter, and Brute Factor. So now with semi-modular architecture, you can splice its genome and expand its raw power into the world of Eurorack modular.
The MiniBrute 2 has nothing to hide. Just take a look at its front panel and get yourself acquainted. You’ll notice the now-iconic Brute oscillators, the acidic Steiner-Parker filter, and the mayhem-inducing Brute Factor knob that has also become the signature Arturia synth element for many fans.
So if you are looking a bit further, beyond the usual modulation sources and controls, you’ll notice some exciting, unexpected features on the Minibrute 2: a second VCO; a second LFO; new VCO and Filter frequency modulation possibilities; modifier-related modulation destinations; a brand new, loopable AD envelope.
Once tamed, this little beast will reveal the full range of its vocalizations, including raging leads and piercing sequences, as well as smooth pads and purring bass.
A polymorph with a pack instinct
There are two ways that creatures thrive: adapting, and grouping together. MiniBrute 2 is a master of both thanks to its massive CV/Gate patch bay, you will be able to reinvent 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 cleverly, inspiringly routed. If you want to start dissecting the sound and experimenting, you will also find direct, 100% safe access to the MiniBrute 2’s genetic code on the right of its front panel.
Modulating the Metalizer amount to an audio pulse? Has the AD envelope affecting its own decay to make it sharper? Affecting the VCO1 FM amount with the LFO? You get the idea. The possibilities are practically unlimited. And even more so if you have CV/Gate-enhanced gear and Eurorack modules to welcome into the pack.
Finally, there is no natural selection here as with MiniBrute 2, you set your own rules of sonic evolution.
