Minibrute Monotonous Improvisation

December 28, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Minibrute demonstration by Youtube alias Dovinia, details below:

Quite by chance a Minibrute ended up on my desk the other day. I wasn’t really going to order this synth but when one turned up for sale I couldn’t resist the temptation to try it out – if only to see if it can do other sounds than the ones that have so far been presented in various reviews. I think I quite like it.

Arturia Minibrute – Mini Brute Drums For Ableton Live

December 11, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · 6 Comments 

Here’s a nice treat from AfroDJMac featuring samples from the Minibrute, details below:

This free Ableton Live Pack features drum sounds created from samples of the Arturia MiniBrute. More specifically, I resampled sounds from the MegaBrute Collection for Ableton Live ( http://afrodjmac.com/2012/11/07/megabrute-ableton-live-pack/ ) and created some odd and unique drum samples. From there I organized them into Ableton’s drum rack and added various effects. All in all it is 24 different drum sounds all created from the analog beauty that is the Arturia Mini Brute!

MiniBrute and the MicroKorg makes #1

September 27, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

“I really do like the sounds of the MiniBrute and the MicroKorg, especial when they are together to make one.”

Live Ambient Improvisation by Daniel Davis

September 24, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Live Ambient Improv – Angstrom’s Looper VST w/ Waldorf Blofeld, Roland XV-5050, Roland Alpha Juno 1, Roland HS-60, MicroKorg, and Arturia Minibrute.

“The audio and video isn’t totally in sync – my camera doesn’t have an audio in, and without a beat, it’s hard to sync up. It’s close enough for ambient though.”
