Packed with mixable waveforms, a new sub-oscillator design, the famous Steiner-Parker multimode filter, a super-fast envelope, a syncable LFO, our new step sequencer and a patchable mod matrix, the MicroBrute is a landmark new synth at an incredible price.

If you’re new to synths, you’re looking at one of the easiest to use and most unique-sounding synthesizers we think money can buy. And if you’re a synth veteran, we think it won’t have escaped your attention that MicroBrute is also a seriously capable semi-modular sequence-able beast. Wait till you hear how it sounds.

No presets, no menus, nothing to get between you and the ability to sculpt your sound live. Not only does MicroBrute give you the means to create, perform and be completely original every time you power up, it does it with astounding sound quality.

Sawtooth, Pulse and 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.

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

Modulate the sound of the MicroBrute SE by connecting modulation sources and destinations. You can also use it to connect with external gear. With the MicroBrute SE's stackable patch cables, you get even more modulation possibilities!

The MicroBrute SE uses 100% analog VCO's. Although ours are very stable, you may sometimes need to tune your instrument.

Connect your MicroBrute SE with your vintage analog gear.

Process audio through MicroBrute SE; connect it to your favorite devices thanks to its audio input and output as well as MIDI input.

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

I made a Microbrute SE demonstration of mixing all the waveforms together and modulating them all at once with different sources:

Help me choose my first synthesizer... Grandmother or Minibrute 2S?

I think I'm going to take the sound quality route over the flexibility. At the end of the day with the GM I get both, sound quality and flexibility. Maybe I'll pick one first and as I get deep into synths and modulation I'd pick the other one. Maybe next year Arturia launches the MB3......
