Saturns Knight Microbrute patch…
Another auditory experiment featuring the Arturia Microbrute and analog modular synth.

This Microbrute patch is being clocked by the modular via Gate in on the Microbrute.
The Microbrute’s gate out is triggering an Envelator eurorack module.
The Microbrute’s CV/Gate out multed to all the eurorack oscillators 1v/oct in.
Microbrute’s Mod matrix LFO out multed to Filter in and Metalizer in.

Modulating Another Synth with Atruria MicroBrute’s LFO

November 11, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Background video description:

In my last video, I showed how the Microbrute’s LFO will sync to external MIDI clock and used the LFO to modulate the MicroBrute itself. But using the LFO CV OUT from the Micro, you can also modulate another synth. In this video, I’ve got the Micro’s LFO modulating the filter on the MiniBrute. You’ve probably notices I’m using a Leatherman multi-plier to hold down keys on the MicroBrute to allow the sequence to run “hands-free”. I have been told that Arturia is releasing a software update on Nov. 12 that will allow the sequencer to run hands-free using a MIDI CC command. Until I get the update, I’ll be using the weight of the tool to hold keys down.

Arturia Microbrute Jam with Roland TR-909 and Strymon TimeLine

More noodling around with the Arturia MicroBrute and one of the factory programmed sequences.

“One of the best features of the MiniBrute and MicroBrute is the Metalizer function on the triangle wave. Since the LFO can sync to the sequencer and the sequencer is being synced to the 909, the LFO is now synced to MIDI clock and the rate knob now acts as a clock divider for the LFO as I modulate the filter with the various waveforms and speed intervals. The camera stopped recording about halfway though, which I guess is alright since it was getting rather repetitive.”

Magnetic Fields 4 Melody Played on Arturia MiniBrute and MicroBrute Synthesizers

Background video description:

I’m not a big fan of covers, but one of the factory sequences loaded into the MicroBrute is reminiscent of Les Chants Magnetiques Pt. IV by Jean Michel Jarre and it’s only appropriate to do a quick demo of a couple of French synthesizers with a French composer/synthesist’s song. I’ve got the MicroBrute running through the Strymon TimeLine (dTape mode, of course) and the MiniBrute running through the Big Sky (Cloud mode). Apologies for the sloppy playing, it’s not easy to play with a tripod right up next to you.

Review: Arturia MicroBrute – Pure Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

November 7, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Alex from Sonic Sense Pro Audio demonstrates the new Arturia MicroBrute analog synthesizer.

MicroBrute is pure analog sonic powerhouse of a synth. Small in size but loaded with features, it follows in the footsteps laid by its big brother the MiniBrute.

Packed with mixable waveforms, a new sub oscillator design, the famous Steiner-Parker multimode filter, super fast envelope, syncable LFO and the new step sequencer, not to mention the patchable mod matrix the MicroBrute is a landmark new synth at an incredible price.

Arturia Jupiter 8v multitrack: “The Elevator” – Alphaville cover

November 6, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here’s a multitrack using only the software synth Arturia Jupiter 8V, the recreation of the classic Roland synth. Only the drums and vocals are not Jupiter 8V.

The song is a cover of an old Alphaville song “The Elevator” or “The Nelson Highrise (Sector One: The Elevator). It’s the b-side of “Sounds Like A Melody” from 1984.

One more nice demo: Arturia Microbrute – new analog Synthesizer

October 26, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Some sounds taken from Arturia´s new baby – the MicroBrute. A very tiny 100% analog synthesizer with the same sound like his big brother MiniBrute. There are several new features like the Stepsequenzer and the Patchfield with CV for some Modulations. The very good sounding Steiner-Parker-Filter with HP, BP and LP is also present. The MicroBrute is the perfect complement to his Big Brother or a Modular-System. More info at:

Four massive video reviews of the Arturia MicroBrute

October 25, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Of course our personal favorite is the last one featuring Matsutake from Logic System :-)

Arturia’s new baby – is 100% analogue with a lot of features for the money – see what we make of it.

Enjoy !!

 

+ a little Japanese bonus:

“Mogul, pine Takeshi analog synth love playing down analog synths Arturia, the MiniBrute.
I would connect you to their own “closet” to the (Moog Modular).” Googlish
