This article is about the Arturia Microbrute. It’s pretty cool. From watching the demo video on YouTube, you will see how this nice little creation modifies sound and synthesizes it into any form you want. The demo is pretty good because it asserts the typical qualities of the synthesizer as well as gives us a confident and brief introduction of the gear as a whole. This is definitely a product you should utilize for on stage mixing and performing.
Here are some of its features
– It’s got a (up to) 64 note sequencer, so you can program and loop complex melodic sound on the device
– It’s semi modular so you decide where to apply the LFO and ENV
– You can use the audio input to expand the oscillator section
This gadget is something music producers should look into, especially if they are dubstep producers or PBR&B producers. The Microbrute has been out for a month (roughly) now and it is available at most retail music production stores such as GuitarCenter and Sweetwater. It will run around $299.99 which is pretty cheap/average for gear. Walk into a store and get your hands on one of these before you buy it.
This gear is definitely great for musicians that would like to experiment with their sounds. You can never go wrong with different styles of production and the Arturia Mircrobute definitely covers that base. The color of the hardware is very profound as well as it has a confident appeal and approach to it because it allows for an attractive studio presence when it is lined up with other studio hardware.
I am not really that knowledgeable about Arturia’s studio equipment, but I am sure they make very qualified gear for the average music producer; I mainly use M-Audio and Roland studio equipment. This is definitely the type of gear that should be taken to the studio and played with live with a rock or electronic band. The only downside to this is that the keyboard is pretty small, they should definitely think about coming out with different styles and key lengths of this piece of hardware. It would be definitely nice to see a 49 Key or even an 88 Key of this device. in my opinion the more keys on the device the better; it allows for more octaves and opportunities for creation as well.
