A single oscillator analogue synth with a 25-note keyboard, unique and versatile filter section and flexible arpeggiator. The MiniBrute features an impressive range of oscillator shaping capabilities too.
The MiniBrute is a fairly ‘classic’ style synth, so it's certainly best suited to recreating vintage sounds. It does feature an impressive array of CV interfacing options though, and it can connect to a computer via USB for deeper - albeit not limitless - editing of patches and performance setup.
Value for money:
The MiniBrute certainly punches above its weight at this price point; it packs some impressive sonic clout and is fairly adaptable and flexible.
Monophonic. Some deeper parameters can't be edited via the front panel and require the software editor.
Anyone looking for a vintage-style synth (SH-101 fans in particular,) but one with a few 21st Century touches and plenty of sonic character of its own.45 Stars
