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.

“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!”
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).
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.
Here is a demonstration of the sound and functionality of the Arturia MicroBrute LFO and patch-panel.

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.
Just a quick demo experimenting with the arturia microbrute patched up to my modular synth.
