MiniBrute is Arturia's new analog synthesizer. The company tells us that, with a pure analog signal path and several innovative features, it sets a new standard for what a hardware synthesizer should be.An Arturia PR person told Sonic State, "The pure analog, multi-wave oscillator combined with a huge sounding classic multi-mode filter, and wide range of modulation capabilities will bring new life into your recordings and stage performances. Add to that outstanding features like the Ultrasaw, Metalizer, Brute Factor, Arpeggiator, LFO with sample & hold, full USB/MIDI/CV connectivity; all of which are housed in a rugged metal enclosure and it is almost too brutal to think about!"
