ARTURIA MINIBRUTE 2S. UNRESTRAINED ANALOGThe synth that kick-started the affordable analog revolution is reborn as an addictive, inspiring step-sequencing synth with huge modular capabilities.
Et Tu, Brute? Latin phrase meaning "even you, Brutus?", for those of us wondering...
Fans of the original MiniBrute will instantly fall in love with the familiar controls and signal flow, but this synth has an exciting new sound that it can’t wait for the world to discover.
A powerful standalone synth, MiniBrute 2S gives you hands-on control, letting you create unique sounds that will set you apart from the crowd.
There’s nothing quite like thrill of hearing your sound come to life in your hands; singing as you tweak your VCO waveforms; growling as you ride your LFO; and screaming as you push the Steiner-Parker filter.
Through organic programming with near-infinite possibilities, MiniBrute 2S opens up an exciting universe of sound for you to explore.
Giving you ultimate control over a vast array of new and exciting synth options, internal routing, and Eurorack compatibility, this is a synthesizer for musical pioneers.
Bringing the power of Eurorack modular to a new generation of musicians, MiniBrute 2S is truly a synth for the modular age.
More than the sum of its parts, MiniBrute 2S takes everything you know about synths and turns it upside-down, letting you rewrite the rules.
Featuring a comprehensive modulation matrix with dozens of sources and destinations at your disposal, you can start rewiring its signal paths to conjure up truly exciting sounds that have never been heard before.
|Analog Audio Signal Path||100%|
|Multimode Filter||Steiner-Parker 12 dB per Octave (2-Pole): Low-pass, band-pass, high-pass, notch
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)
Pulse Width (alters width of square wave)
Metalizer (bringing extreme triangle harmonics)
Frequency Modulation (FM) (default VCO 2 modulates VCO 1)
Ultrasaw Amount (generating 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)
|External Analog Audio Input||Yes|
|Controls||16 x velocity and pressure sensitive pads
16 x encoders
|Sequencer||Sequence Memories: 64 Number of Steps: 64 Sequence 1: Pitch, gate, velocity, and pressure Sequence Modulations (Seq 2 & 3): Gates, LFOs, AD Envelopes, and more Sequencer Modes: Real-time or step recording|
|Full Function Arpeggiator||8 x modes
8 x time divisions
Swing: 50% to 75%
1 x hold/latch function
|CV In/Out Controls||Patchbay
1/8" / 3.5 mm miniature mono jacks
