Arturia DrumBrute Analog Drum Machine

Providing 17 distinct, fully analog drum and percussion instruments with an intuitive sequencer, massive connectivity, a two-mode Steiner-Parker filter, and dynamic performance controls, DrumBrute will take your beat production to the next level.

Meet DrumBrute: a 100% analog drum machine & sequencer created with performance and in-depth sound editing at its heart in this video by Arturia:


Create energetic and exciting drum beats with a single, user-friendly device. With its vast sonic potential and smooth workflow, DrumBrute meets and exceeds the expectations of demanding musicians. Bridging the gap between inspiration and technology, DrumBrute offers punchy analog drum sounds, advanced 64 step / 64 pattern sequencing possibilities and ultra-effective performance controls.

Strike the First Blow

Create your perfect kit using the best analog sounds. Every single one of the seventeen drum & percussion parts is 100% analog, and carries the savage DNA of the Brute synth family. DrumBrute is fully polyphonic, so all of its sounds can be played simultaneously and twisted by the nasty two-mode 12dB Steiner-Parker filter.

Soft, sharp, pure, trashy, or devastating... DrumBrute lets you create an exciting, personal sound palette that will electrify your music.

Absolute Rhythm Mastermind

A collection of 17 distinct analog drum instruments; an advanced 64-step drum sequencer with song mode; a polyrhythmic, step-repeat glitch machine; a performance powerhouse and sequence looper. DrumBrute is all of this. It can also act as your creative hub, as its vast connectivity allows you to output different sections of your mix separately, and connect to all your existing studio & performance gear with USB, MIDI, and Clock I/O.

More than the sum of its parts, DrumBrute combines the technical perfection of studio gear with the excitement of a playable instrument.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Classic Analog X0X w/ Tricks Up its Sleeve"
Overall: While the DrumBrute isn't be all, end all drum machine it does a great job of being an classic X0X box with pretty darn good analog sound. And lots of voices! A lot of people are not fans of the first kick voice--I'm not either, on its own. However it is fantastic to layer as a top kick, to beef up the snare or layer under the clap. I love the hats, they unforgivingly dirty. All the other voices--even the zap, which when pitched down makes a fine little perc sound--find their way into my tracks consistantly. The DrumBrute sound is DRY. Much like other analog instruments. Much like the MicroBrute. Most of the time I end up using a lot of processing; however, the DrumBrute voices take to lots of processing very well. If you already have some good saturation, distortion, etc you can get a lot of different textures out of the DrumBrute.The master swing has a really nice groove to it + swing per track + individual track lengths + "note nudge" means you can really get some pretty natural grooves going. There is a lot unsaid here (invidual outs, master out multi mode filter, rolls/stutter, etc). For my money this is way more interesting than the TR-8.Just a note about my star ratings below. I gave the "sound" category a slightly low rating because some of the voices do have a limited sweet spots on the parameters--the DrumBrute isn't a sound deisgn power house. "Wow Factor" was low-ish because...well...I've owned and used a lot of drum machines. The DrumBrute didn't come crashing out the gate with unheard of features. But it is a workhorse drum machine that'll work for many people. If you want to get started making House or Techno and don't want to use a computer, you could do far, far worse than choosing a DrumBrute as a first drum machine.
Style of Music: Electronic music. Mostly dance-y stuff, but I kinda like it all.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Quick, intuitive, unique and FUN"
Overall: The DrumBrute is not a clone of any drum machine that I know of, and that uniqueness is what makes it such an interesting piece of gear. It is very well-constructed (solid, sturdy). The immediacy of the functions make it extremely fun to jam on and for playing live. Having individual outs expands the sonic potential which is great, since the sweet spots for each sound do seem a little elusive at times. Kick 1 and the snare are probably the weakest sounds, but sending through their separate outs can quickly remedy that. Being truly analog, there's no saving of knob settings so I tend not to get caught up in the "how can I recall/recreate this live" way of thinking. Plenty of pattern/song memory though. It's also fun to trigger drum kits in a DAW (I use Ableton drum racks) since the pads send midi, and the note repeat/random functions also work via midi. It'd be nice if you could pan each sound you could apply the filter to your entire programmed sequence (which you can't do when using the individual I/O), but this is a minor gripe and at this price point you can't expect to have everything. For serious/experienced drum machine types, this may tend to seem like a less-serious option or something that would be nice to have second-hand, but if this is your first drum machine or if you're looking for a well-built, unique, and fun drum machine at a great price the DrumBrute is an excellent choice.
