About Arturia Synthesizers

Arturia Synthesizers perfectly bridge the gap between old and new. They give a large nod to the classic analog synths of the 1970s whilst retaining modern features such as USB connectivity, built-in sequencers and arpeggiators, and the ability to produce modern sounds. These features make them an excellent choice for electronic genres and hip hop.

The MicroBrute is a little beast that boasts a huge sound. It features an intuitive interface that allows you to control every parameter of sound from the front panel. Couple this with the fantastic sequencer section and you have one of the best synthesizers for learning synthesis on. It's perfect for beginners, thanks to its mini keys and easy to understand approach, but the fact that professional musicians including Liam Howlett from The Prodigy and Trentemøller have adopted the MicroBrute into their setup proves that this instrument is an instrument that you're not going to outgrow any time soon.

The MiniBrute 2 and 2S expand on the award-winning features of the original MiniBrute. They retain the excellent Steiner Parker filter and Brute Factor circuit whilst maximizing sonic potential by adding an extra VCO and LFO. An oversized Mod Matrix provides endless tweakage possibilities. The MiniBrute 2S omits the keyboard from the MiniBrute 2 in favour of a series of encoders and pressure sensitive pads which can be used to play the synth like a keyboard or for executing intricate sequencing. The MiniBrute 2 and 2S also feature Arturia link ports, which allow you to connect to a DrumBrute Eurorack case for easy positioning and transport. The MiniBrute series offers a great level of versatility, and Arturia has definitely knocked it out of the park with this update.

The MatrixBrute takes the MicroBrute and MiniBrute, stretches them as far as they can go and flips it all on its head. One of the first things people notice about the MatrixBrute is its size. This isn't the kind of synth you just throw in a gig back and carry over your shoulder, this guy has some serious weight and frankly, he's beautiful. Designed for comfort, Arturia know you are going to sit at this gorgeous synth for hours working on sounds and the MatrixBrute makes this a joy. Every parameter imaginable has its own dedicated control, including the high-quality analog effects, 64 step sequencer (yes, really! 64 dedicated buttons!) and the gargantuan Mod Matrix. This makes patching within the MatrixBrute itself and running other hardware in multiple combinations a breeze. The MatrixBrute is one of the most expressive synths on the market. Analog or not, with its stunning good looks and sounds and a huge amount of sonic capabilities, it's clear to see that the MatrixBrute is going to be looked back upon as a true cult classic.

Frequently Asked Questions about Arturia Synthesizers

Engineers Frédéric Brun and Gilles Pommereuil founded Arturia in Grenoble, France in 1999.
Both the MicroBrute and MiniBrute are excellent for beginners. The MicroBrute is the more affordable of the two, but its mini-keys may put some people off, in which case the MiniBrute would be the better option. They are both massively fun to use and incredibly easy to figure out.
