The smaller sibling to Arturia's original DrumBrute, the Impact drum machine uses analog synthesis to create deep, punchy sounds that smack you in the chest.

Get ready to meet a different kind of Brute. A drum machine with attitude, Arturia's DrumBrute Impact is an addictively fun, instantly satisfying beat maker with a beefy, unique voice. Featuring amazing performance controls, superb connectivity, and analog sounds that will give your music a powerful, visceral energy.

Aggressive Analog Sounds:

Putting the focus on "Brute", DrumBrute Impact features 10 high-energy, refined, punchy analog sounds. It uses "Color" sound-shapers to introduce unique, per-instrument effects for some tonal variation. Boost the harmonic content, add some drive, snap, or crack at the touch of a button, or create automated changes by creating a "Color" sequence. If you want your drums to push even harder, there's a built-in distortion with drum-optimized crunch. DrumBrute Impact is a drum machine for musicians and producers who crave raw power and awesome tone, complementing its cleaner sounding brother: DrumBrute.

Instinctive Sequencing:

Sharing the same prize-winning, prize-fighting sequencing architecture of the original DrumBrute, you'll love the simple, fun, and intuitive sequencer in DrumBrute Impact. Create complex phasing polyrhythms and straight, pounding rhythms; record a finger-drumming performance; punch in a step-sequenced masterpiece; everything is a joy. Use the touch strip to create some real-time glitchy, beat-repeat breakdowns, spice up a single instrument or your whole pattern with a dedicated 'Random' knob, and add some syncopation read more and groove with the 'Swing' feature.

Addictive Hands-On Fun:

Get away from computer screens, say goodbye to sub-menus, and jump into the world of tactile satisfaction. Connect to your other gear, sync up, and make some music the old-school way. Featuring a huge array of sync and connectivity options, you'll be able to hook up and jam with practically any other synth, sequencer, or MIDI-enabled instrument.
