A small beast with a powerful voice

Let’s be honest, you’re not here because you want the same old synth, are you?

The MiniBrute 2 has nothing to hide. Take a look at its front panel, get yourself acquainted.

You’ll notice the now-iconic Brute oscillators, the acidic Steiner-Parker filter, and the mayhem-inducing Brute Factor knob that has become the signature Arturia synth element for many fans.

Looking a bit further, beyond the usual modulation sources and controls, you’ll notice some exciting, unexpected features;

  • a second VCO

  • a second LFO

  • new VCO and Filter frequency modulation possibilities

  • modifier-related modulation destinations

  • a brand new, loopable AD envelope

Once tamed, this little beast will reveal the full range of its vocalizations, including raging leads and piercing sequences, as well as smooth pads and purring bass.

The time is nigh, the moon is full, and MiniBrute 2 is ready to howl.

Synthesizer Type Monophonic
Analog Audio Signal Path 100%
Multimode Filter Steiner-Parker 12 dB per Octave (2-Pole): Low-pass, band-pass, high-pass, notch
Filter Controls:
FM (controls the amplitude and polarity of the envelope signal sent to modulate the filter cutoff frequency)
Resonance Modulation (RM): Modulates the level of resonance at the cutoff frequency, pre-wired to LFO1 with bipolar control
ATT 1 > Cutoff: Attenuator 1 provides another way of modulating the filter cutoff frequency, pre-wired between pressure-sensitivity and the filter cutoff.
Oscillators VCO1: Saw + UltraSaw, Square + Pulse width, Triangle + Metalizer (Waveform mixing)
VCO2: Sine, Saw, Square waveforms
VCO2 Tuning Range: Fine, All, LFO
Oscillator Mixer Yes (Sawtooth, Square, Triangle, White Noise, External Audio In, Osc 2)
Signal Enhancers VCO 1 Controls
Fine Tune (controls pitch over 1 octave - does not affect VCO 2)
Glide (portamento)
Pulse Width (alters width of square wave)
Metalizer (bringing extreme triangle harmonics)
Frequency Modulation (FM) (default VCO 2 modulates VCO 1)
UltraSaw Amount (generates shimmering sawtooth waveforms)
PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) (default LFO modulates Pulse Width)
Metal Mod (default velocity controls Metal amount)
LFO LFO 1&2 Waveforms: Sine, Tri, Saw, Square, Random, Slew Random
Clock syncable to sequencer/arpeggiator
Envelope Generators ADSR (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release)
AD (Attack, Decay)
Keyboard Tracking Yes (on the VCF Cutoff)
Keyboard Type 25-note keyboard with velocity
Aftertouch Yes
Mod Wheel
  • Modulation Wheel: Assignable from patchbay (default to filter cutoff via Att 1>Cutoff knob)
  • Mod Destination Switch:
    LFO 1 Vib = The Mod wheel controls the amount of LFO 1, which by default will introduce vibrato
    Mod CV = The Mod wheel becomes a modulation source in the patch bay via the Mod jack in the MIDI section
Pitch Wheel Yes (with selectable bend range)
Octave Selector Yes (-2 to +2 octaves)
External Analog Audio Input Yes
CV In/Out Controls Patchbay
1/8" / 3.5 mm miniature mono jacks
CV Inputs: Eurorack level signals, 100 kOhms, ±5 Vx (Exception: Pitch CV inputs are 6.8 MOhms impedance)
CV Outputs: Eurorack level signals, 680 Ohms, ±5 V
Clocks / Gates Inputs: Eurorack level signals, 68 kOhms, 0 V/+5 V
Clocks / Gates Outputs: Eurorack level signals, 2 kR, 0 V/+5 V
MIDI Input Yes (5-pin DIN connector)
MIDI Output Yes (5-pin DIN connector)
USB MIDI Input Yes
USB MIDI Output Yes
Audio Output 1 x 1/4" / 6.3 mm audio jack
Headphone Output 1 x 1/4" / 6.3 mm headphone jack
Full Function Arpeggiator 8 x modes
