Arturia Microbrute

The Aruria MicroBrute is essentially a smaller version of the classic MiniBrute, albeit with the same great analog sound, Steiner-Parker filter, and Arturia’s Multi-wave oscillator. 

The unit features an onboard step sequencer reminiscent of the sequencers found in the Sequential Circuits Pro One and the Oberheim DS-2a, an updated sub-oscillator that makes this single oscillator synth sound even beefier, and a mod matrix capable of routing three modulation sources (EG, LFO, and Keyboard CV) to any of the unit’s six modulation destinations. 

These features make the Arturia MicroBrute one of the most cost-effective analog synthesizers currently on the market.
