  • Arturia MiniBrute Full-Blast Analog Monophonic Synthesizer

    The affordable Arturia MiniBrute Full-Blast Analog Synthesizer is a monophonic synthesizer designed to take you back to the basics of analog synthesis. Its classic 100% analog audio signal path features a voltage controlled oscillator wave mixer. The compact keyboard supports Aftertouch and boasts 25 semi-weighted keys. The MiniBrute is outfitted with several tone-shaping tools including a Steiner-Parker multimode filter, six waveforms and bi-polar modulation destinations, two ADSR envelope generators and a full function arpeggiator. For added durability, it's housed in a rugged aluminum enclosure with vintage synthesizer appeal.

    With its user-friendly control interface, classic aesthetic and potential for endless exploration and tonal tinkering, the MiniBrute definitely encourages creativity. In minutes, you'll be generating your very own tones and sounds. Plus, for added flexibility, the synthesizer is equipped with complete MIDI, CV and USB In/Out connectivity. There's even a 1/4" headphone jack for privacy and a 1/4" audio output for sending the signal to an amplifier or PA system.

    To generate such unique sounds, the MiniBrute uses more than just standard oscillators and envelopes. It supports multiple modes of arpeggiation, octave range control, time divisions, swing and tempo. Plus, Arturia outfitted the MiniBrute with a few truly unique and exclusive components. Brute Factor saturates the signal with rich harmonics and Ultrasaw generates shimmering sawtooth waveforms. Plus, Metalizer creates extreme triangle harmonics.

    Although innovative on the inside, the MiniBrute still evokes that old-school, hands-on synthesizer experience. It still features a 100% analog audio signal path, durable controller knobs, classic faders, a pitch wheel, a modulation wheel and a compact keyboard. The MiniBrute feels like a vintage synthesizer, but its components shape tones and sound in original, innovative ways. This amalgamation of tonal flexibility, vintage appeal, innovative components and simple operation is what makes the MiniBrute suited for both computer MIDI work and classic analog synthesizer use.

  • Korg volca sample - Digital Sample Sequencer

    The volca sample from Korg is a digital sample sequencer that allows for sequencing up to one-hundred samples. The step sequencer is designed for ease of editing and to allow parts to be inserted or removed "on the fly." Sixteen step-keys enter notes while maintaining visual confirmation of the timing of the notes in a measure. A performance can be recorded in real time. Up to ten of the sequence patterns created can be stored in internal memory.

    The motion sequence function records any time-varying changes made to the sound using the knob movements. An active step function allows for skipping steps during the sequence, and the step jump function instantly plays just the key-pressed step. A swing function adjusts the swing playback position, generating the distinctive groove of dance music styles.

    A frequency isolator applies changes to the sound by boosting or cutting the low/high ranges with the isolator implemented as an analog circuit. The built-in reverb effect can be switched on/off for each part, and it is possible to save up to six song patterns, each combining up to sixteen sequences. Additional samples can be loaded using the volca sample's dedicated iOS app (the internal sounds are overwritten).

    Motion sequencer records and plays back up to eleven parameters
    Active Step and Step Jump functions allow for inserting or removing steps
