Brute LFO is an iOS App for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch, which outputs control voltages (CV) from the device’s headphone output. Connect it to your Arturia Microbrute or other analog gear, like a Modular Synthesizer, to modulate your sounds. The headphone output voltages aren’t very high on iOS devices, so it’s more of a subtle modulation, but Brute LFO also sounds awesome when pushed into audio range. There are two simultaneous oscillators and a third one to modulate the other two’s frequency. Switch on “Brute” mode to dirty the waveforms up some more. Not shown in the video: The performance pad mode, in which you can use two touch pads to adjust four parameters simply by swiping your fingers on the screen.
Visit the Brute LFO website here:
“The Brute LFO is a powerful low frequency oscillator that modulates your analog gear. If you have a hardware synth that allows you to use external gear to modulate the pitch, the filter, or any other parameter, just plug the Brute LFO into the CV in and start playing. It consists of three separate LFOs. LFO 1 and 2 can be controlled using the control elements in the top half of the screen. The big knob in he middle sets the rate of both the LFOs. Additionally you can change the waveforms of the LFOs, detune LFO 2 and change its phase. The amount knob in the top half also sets the overall amount of the modulation. The elements on the bottom half (LFO 3) can be used to modulate the frequency of LFO 1 and 2. And the brute switch destroys everything!”
Just going through some of the sounds in the Arp 2600 V2 Bank.
Going through yet more of the Arp 2600 V2 patches.
Analog Laboratory is an extremely powerful software synthesizer solution.
First of all, Analog Laboratory offers 4300 legendary classic synthesizer sounds from Arturia’s vintage analog recreations: Mini V, Prophet V, CS-80, Jupiter-8, ARP, Prophet VS,Moog Modular V, Wurlitzer and Oberheim SEM V.
But Analog Laboratory goes further by offering a unique interface to tweak them all as well as the ability to edit each of them in depth, in the original synthesizer*.
With the addition of 200 scenes organized by genres, including drum loops, advanced arpeggiation melodies and ways to allocate sounds to different parts of your keyboard, Analog Laboratory is likely to become your favorite synth workstation, constantly feeding your creativity with inspiring ideas.

In this video I am using the Arturia Spark Vintage drum machine along with the Sonic Projects OP-X PRO-II. This is part of one of my original compositions that is still in the making. Thanks for taking the time to check it out!
How to make drum sounds with the Arturia MicroBrute, including a kick/bass drum, high hats and a sort of “hand clap”. Pause the video on the stills to check out the positions of all the controls required to recreate these sounds.
In a fairly non-musical environment (straight note on, without a single inch of grace), a simple investigation on waveforms and their treatmens on Arturia MicroBrute. Ultrasaw, Pulse Width, Metal Triangle; plus Subosc and Fifth third harmonic suboscillation. No musical efforts, just waveform (be careful).

Hey guys! Here is my 2nd attempt to make a better video of the Arturia Jupiter 8V. I finally figured out a better way to capture the video! This is a split patch that I created on the Jupiter 8V using an arpeggio saw wave patch on the lower half and a brass patch on the upper half. I added a touch of delay as well. I really like this software!
Here one uses CV to link the Arturia MiniBrute and Microbrute analog mono synths together and show you some of the great features of combining these two great synths.
Contribution from ‘MrSynthmania’, the source of inspiration is not difficult to figure out, details below:
This is my new song “Computermusik”. The most parts are made with the Waldorf Pulse 2 Synthesizer and for the drums I used Arturia SparkLE.
It´s a multitrack recording with Steinberg Cubase 7.
A few weeks ago, after listening the first time to the new Waldorf Pulse 2, I found some presets which reminds me the first time dancing in a disco with 15 years. Do you remember Human League, Depeche Mode and Ultravox? This was all happening in the early eighties. I love that sound, which represents an era where many musicians made music with synthesizers and computers the first time.
This song is based on this decade. I hope you like it.
Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the Arturia MicroBrute LFO and patch-panel.
Learning more about the philosophie around Origin, their own description below:
Origin is the most powerful synthesizer on the market.
As a matter of fact, it goes beyond the traditional definition of synthesizers. It is a hardware DSP system that houses several synthesizers in one machine. Some of these synths come from the past, such as the Minimoog, some are totally new and innovative.
Loaded with modules extracted from the best synthesizers of all time, Origin lets you combine these modules and take advantage of the additional possibilities put onboard. The result: a new type of sound accessible through an extremely intuitive interface.
Arturia has also uploaded a whole range of video tutorials on the Origin, go here check them out >>
