Arturia introduces its first 100% analog drum machine, the DrumBrute

Every feature has its own dedicated button, knob, or pad, so you’ll spend less time navigating endless sub-menus.

The DrumBrute contains 17 fully analog drum and percussion instruments.

Arturia has announced the arrival of DrumBrute – the firm’s first 100% analog drum machine and sequencer.

Designed with performance and in-depth sound editing at its heart, the newest member of Arturia’s Brute family is a powerful beat-making instrument that carries the savage DNA of the MicroBrute, MiniBrute, and MatrixBrute.

The DrumBrute contains 17 fully analog drum and percussion instruments, including two kicks, snare, clap, open and closed hats, high & low toms and conga, maracas, rimshot, clave, tambourine, zap, cymbal, and even a reverse cymbal.

The main output contains a highly regarded two-mode Steiner-Parker filter, allowing you to add dynamic frequency sweeps and satisfying bass drops. Not only that, but every drum sound has multiple parameters that can be tweaked to achieve your perfect kit.

Each one of DrumBrute’s 64 sequences can contain up to 64 steps, and can be chained together in a song mode. Despite this massive performance power, punching in your perfect beat is simple and fast. Fans of vintage drum machines will feel right at home with the familiar layout.

Every feature has its own dedicated button, knob, or pad, so you’ll spend less time navigating endless sub-menus and more time making music.

It also features in-depth editing, so users can get in the groove with the natural Swing feature, feel inspired by dialling in some Randomness, mix up their rhythm with Step Repeat, Roller and Looper functions, or accent particular drum hits to add some punch to the beat.

DrumBrute has extensive connectivity and sync options, including MIDI, Clock, 1PPS, 2PPQ, DIN24, and DIN48. This means that it will work seamlessly with all other modular, synth, and sequencing gear.

DrumBrute boasts dedicated audio outputs for each instrument channel giving almost limitless options for external processing and multitrack recording. It has 3.5mm and 1⁄4” headphone outputs so you’ll never have to hunt out an adapter again. It can also act as a fully-fledged MIDI interface to control your DAW.

Ideal for use on the road, DrumBrute comes with rugged housing, chunky pads, and wiggle-free knobs.

Aturia’s DrumBrute has an RRP of €449 and will be available in November.
