MiniBrute-Based Kontakt Synth

Precious Sound releases PreBrute sample-based synth   21-Dec-12

Precious Sound tells us that PreBrute is the latest sound set for their "4Scoop" engine for Kontakt 5, and the worlds first sample based Kontakt synth based on the Arturia MiniBrute. Here's all the details in their own words

Our "4Scoop" engine consists of 4 oscillators.
Each Oscillator has a possible 80 waveforms to choose from(20 waveforms 4 flavours)each with independent modulation and filtering options, these four oscillators are then summed in the global section to 2 master filters and various send/insert FX.
We do not sample "Synth Pre-sets" we do not want to be limited to modulated waveforms/filter sweeps etc.
The goal of our engine is to capture the character of hardware oscillators and modulate them within our interface to create a sound of your own.
We also had hardware in mind while developing the engine and at every stage of the engine when a effect/filter is off it is bypassed from the signal chain completely leaving you with a clean tone that can then be fed to any hardware filter of your liking.
you can then save all your settings as pre-sets and can recall them anytime you like.
This can be done all from our interface no need to have multiple instrument files and have to deal with opening and closing each Kontakt instance.

Nice collection to have at a decent price, but I think part of the allure of the Minibrute is that it is a highly tweakable hardware synthesiser.

I should know: I own one ^^

Yeah, what Chris said! I LOVE my Minibrute. As a playable, tweakable inexpensive analog synth, it's nearly perfect! As a midi controller or a sound processor, it needs some work, but overall it's a smashing success!

If you have a Minibrute you can also do something Similar!!! Just sample some clean waves on Ableton and then put them on Ableton Live Sampler and there you go!!! you just got yourself a Polybrute!!! ; )

Of course if you have a minibrute, you can do the same thing. Also of course it would be better to have the hardware over the sampled version of it. However this product is cheaper than the hardware and some people are not comfortable working with hardware. I believe this product aims to be the next best thing to owning a minibrute. For that, I applaud the effort. Also, the different choices of signal chain seem quite nice. I went and listened to some of the demos, especially the preset demos. It has impressive sounds to my ear and seems highly tweakable if those are all based on raw waveforms. I might take the plunge on this one.

I sold my MiniBrute two months after purchasing it. The keyboard is useless, there is no patch memory and the sound is, well you be the judge. This might be OK for kiddies but not for real working musicians. Maybe the Maxibrute will solve these problems.

Rks, If you were a working musician you would know that presets help you recall your sounds on stage quickly so you don't have fumble around programming for the next song. Presets are a must for working musicians. If you are just playing around in you house this synth will work fine for you. The keyboard is also worthless for any kind of lead work. I purchased an prophet 08 instead and love it. I guess you can say that you get what you pay for.

damn GTRman you sound so ignorant...

not every working musician plays the same genre as you...

and if you actually UNDERSTAND synthesis, you could dial in the necessary patch in about 30secs, even if you had to change everything...easily doable in a live setting with the right transitions...

the aftertouch is extremely expressive, making the keyboard amazing for leads.

you should really think about how you portray yourself before posting, because you just come off as an arrogant, naive, moron.

p.s. i have a minibrute LOL

Nice language lolatnoobs. Now everybody knows your intelligence. This is a discussion about the good and bad of the Minibrute synth not a place for you to air out you frustrations. 30 seconds on stage between songs is forever and you would never be able to dial in that exact sound. When working with real analog just a slight turn of a knob will loose that sweet spot sound you need. I know because I have tried it before with Moogs back in the day. What a nightmare that was, thank God for preset memory.
