ArturiaMiniBrute 2S Synthesizer
Arturia MiniBrute 2S
The MiniBrute 2S is an intersection of the most desirable aspects of analog synthesizers, step-sequencing, and semi-modular engineering. It features a straightforward user interface, with all parameters clearly indicated and ergonomically configured. Functionally, MiniBrute 2 features a 3-track multi-pattern step sequencer, expanded patchbay, and an arpeggiator—all of which render it ideal for live performance in addition to studio duties.
Rather than a traditional keyboard, as featured on the MiniBrute 2, the 2S opts for an advanced sequencer section that lets users record up to 64 steps with two additional layers of parameter control (which feature multiple modes). Of course, all of this can be edited on-the-fly, compounding the 2S's usefulness in a performance environment. This section is controlled by 16 pressure and velocity sensitive pads, which can be configured to behave like a keyboard or sequence editor. Additionally, the corresponding encoders can be used to edit target values for each step.
