Arturia Drumbrute

The Arturia Drumbrute is a high quality analog drum machine featuring powerful performance effects and an internal step sequencer. The unit contains dedicated outputs for each individual drum sound, as well as a summed mix output. Additionally, the unit features a clock input and output that enable it to run as a master or slaved clock. And that’s just the beginning. 

Where most drum machines utilized synchronized loops, the Drumbrute features individual loops per drum sound, making the creation of complicated cross-rhythms a breeze. It is also extremely easy to introduce randomness into each pattern for even more complex results. 

The Drumbrute’s sound quality is of exceptional merit. The unit takes inspiration from the classic drum machines of yesterday while implementing a host of advanced options like expressive control across a tactile front panel interface, and key per-track features like song mode, Mute/Solo groups, Randomness, swing, Step Repeat, and Pattern looping. All of which means that users can perform entire drum tracking without any overdubbing or editing.
