Background video description:
My second version of the classic Cure song.
I was not satisfied of my first run uploaded some weeks ago….so,
this time some changes on Volca Keys patterns, different bass sound whit FX., different ending.
And finally sound from the mixer.
Main Melody : Korg Volca Keys
Bass line : Arturia Microbrute , through Digitech BP 50 digital FX.
Added flanger and a little reverb
Drums : Korg Volca Beats
no overdubbing, no DAW.
what you hear is what I play.
Here is a description of some of the functionality associated with the connection of the Arturia MicroBrute to the Arturia MiniBrute: which results in a very powerful duophonic analog synthesizer.
For all of you who are inclined to respond “LESS TALK, MORE PLAYING!” In this particular instance, I agree. I really need to do a lot of “sounds of” videos of this combination to make up for it.
The MICRO is beeing treated with ext Cotoff Trigger Seqencer Doepfer A.-155. In Sync with the internal sequencer + Modular Kick..
Just testing out my new Microbrute. Reverb and Delay for the microbrute are from the machinedrum… and… as they need to be triggered… they sound a little glitchy…
BTW Microbrute is great fun! Hope you enjoy it!

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!”
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.
