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.
Background video description:
Finally checking out the awesome little analog synthesizer from Arturia called the MiniBrute. This is a fully analog synthesizer with a Steiner-Parker filter, CV in/out, MIDI, and USB, all in a nice 25 key aluminium case.

All sounds are from the Arturia Minibrute. Spatial effects were created on the hats,toms, and bells, using the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man and the Vermona Vintage Spring Reverb.
These sounds are free for you to use, but not to sell as a sample library.

A new video, via Verifyhuman, captures a “budget monophonic synthesizer smackdown”:
It’s a budget monophonic synthesizer smackdown: How does the new Korg MS-20 Mini compare against the Arturia Minibrute? A veiny arm takes you through the oscillators of these beasts to see just how similar / different they are.
I made the video as a scientific response to the bevy of forum discussions and questions regarding the two. For those in the market for a budget monosynth but only wish to buy one, I hope the video can remove some of the subjectivity and let the listener determine what sounds better to them. No audio editing or effects were added to the raw sound.
Questions? Opinions? Video comparison requests? Leave them in the comments below.
Recorded through Native Instruments Audio Kontrol 1 with Ableton Live 9.
Waldorf Nave – Live Loop with Elektron Octatrack
All synth sound came from Waldorf Nave on the iPad.
Minibrute was used as a controller only.
For this song, Arturia Minibrute was CV sequenced by Elektron Analog Four.
Output of the minibrute was feed back into Analog Four to use FX track.
As being a hardcore MiniBrute myself, it is really nice to see one of the legends using it
Check out our exclusive interview with synth legend Vince Clarke at his studio in New-York, talking about MiniBrute, his relation to synths and his up-coming projects.
