zZounds Spotlight: Arturia DrumBrute

Analog Drum Machine

There's a reason why the analog drum machine has outlived every trend, thriving alongside the rise of samplers and "virtual drummer" software. Arturia's DrumBrute showcases the best that analog drum machines have to offer and updates the instrument for today's beat creators.

With a user-friendly control panel, an input and output section that can connect to just about any other music gear you own, and that hard-to-define but impossible-to-mistake analog audio quality that Arturia is known for, the DrumBrute captures all that musicians love about analog drum machines.

Pure Analog Goodness

The DrumBrute features 17 fully analog percussion instruments, each offering users the kind of reactive sensitivity that digital samples just can't recreate. Shape your drum sounds with level, pitch, and decay knobs on most instruments, plus additional tone controls and type switches on some. Master controls include resonance and cutoff frequency filters.

Want to mix up your beats? You can introduce swing to your patterns or individual instruments, and get weird with spontaneous hits from different instruments via the "randomness" knob. Build up a big moment by looping it through different beat subdivisions for a classic pulsing effect.

Modern Features

Despite this Brute's old-school analog heart, it does boast several digital features that keep it current. As indicated by its LCD screen, the DrumBrute can record, store and recall preset beats. There are 64 patterns available with 64 steps per pattern, so you're sure to have enough space to build just about every beat you can think of.

Song mode makes the DrumBrute a versatile live tool for solo artists and bands, as you can link multiple patterns together to create a fully realized drum track for a song, with all of your adjustments to swing, filters and more recorded.

Comprehensive Connections

Check out the back panel and you'll find an array of hookups that put the DrumBrute in a class of its own. Twelve individual outputs let you send each drum sound to its own output, an ideal option for recording separate tracks. The metronome also gets its own output, and of course, you'll find a 1/4" master mix out, along with an 1/8" headphone jack for late-night beatmaking sessions.

The USB port lets you connect to a computer for deep editing of parameters or firmware updates. MIDI over USB means you can trigger software drum machines from your DrumBrute. There's 5-pin MIDI in and out to hook up to your hardware MIDI devices, and a clock in and out to connect with vintage synths and other early electronic gear.
