Yesterday we introduced the new Arturia MiniBrute 2, and today the French company announced its smaller but very inspiring sibling, the MiniBrute 2 S.
S for sequencer, because that’s what makes this model quite different from the regular MiniBrute 2. Soundwise they share the same architecture, patch point included, but the interaction with the instrument is radically different.
Unlike the MiniBrute 2, the MiniBrute 2s boasts an inspiring triple-layered step sequencer and multi-mode arpeggiator, plus high quality, pressure and velocity sensitive performance pads.
What MiniBrute Type Are You?
If you come from a piano/keyboard background, the MiniBrute 2 would probably suit you better. True, it’s a small keyboard (25 keys) but for a mono synth it does the job, and you have the control wheels you’re used to.
If you’re more used to xOx kind of sequencing and/or you’re into experimental electronic music, the MiniBrute 2S is going to be really tempting.
Same as the Minibrute 2 – $649 / €649 / £599
