Arturia are thrilled to announce the imminent release of a new synthesizer, one of three new products which will all be available at stores from late february 2018.
MiniBrute 2 is a 25-key analog monosynth with semi-modular architecture, bridging the gap between the traditional synthesizer instruments and the exciting world of modular. MiniBrute 2 shares many of the same iconic features that made its predecessor such a success, including mixable oscillators, the acidic Steiner-Parker filter, and the chaotic Brute Factor. While keeping many of its signature elements, the tone-shaping potential of MiniBrute 2 has been almost exponentially increased.
The reimagined MiniBrute now features semi-modular architecture, adding a comprehensive CV/Gate patch matrix that allows users to both rework its internal signal routing, but also expand into the blossoming world of modular. It also features the same high quality, aftertouch-enabled keybed found in their flagship MatrixBrute synth, making it a joy to play. Truly an instrument designed for musicians by musicians.
Arturia’s latest small-but-mighty monosynth is the successor to their debut analog instrument, the MiniBrute. The first incarnation was released in 2012, and turned the industry on its head, offering a unique, affordable analog synth experience with attitude.
MiniBrute 2 also features exciting new features that greatly expand its potential, both as the focal point of a creative studio, and as a road-ready performance platform. One of these features includes the new Arturia Link, an exciting innovation that will help unify and democratize your creative environment.
More information on the Link system and how it integrates with other devices will be released shortly. Stay tuned for more Arturia product announcements, and all of your questions shall be answered.
To get a good look at MiniBrute 2 in action, and to hear how it sounds, check out the official Arturia MiniBrute 2 announcement video, featuring London-based trip-hop act The Salvador Darlings.
To get hands on with all 3 of the new products, find Arturia at NAMM 2018. They’ll be at booth #11910.
French music software & hardware creators Arturia have created a series of tutorial videos demonstrating the features and functions of their recently released Buchla Easel V, a software recreation of Don Buchla's legendary Music Easel.
The in-depth tutorial - hosted by Glen Darcey - is presented in 3 parts, covering its layout, modulation and control sources, as well as the additional new features.
Check out the Buchla Easel V tutorial series:
Recreating the leftfield brainchild of visionary synth legend Don Buchla, the Buchla Easel V maintains the unique, inspirational approach to sound creation that made the original a true cult icon. Over and above the standard parameters synth enthusiasts expect to find on an instrument, the Buchla Easel V provides a recreation of Don's innovative slider system. Each slider provides a unique voice, overtone, animation, shape, or color to the sound, opening up an exciting, fresh way of sculpting sound, and giving even seasoned professionals a chance to rediscover the joy of synthesis.
Authentically recreating Buchla's experimental, West coast sound was no small feat, and pushed the limits of TAEⓇ: Arturia's exclusive analog emulation technology. The incredibly accurate modeling - mapping out and reproducing the nuanced response of every analog component within the instrument - makes Buchla Easel V a truly cutting edge product. This level of intense detail means that each voice of polyphony requires around 20% of an i7's processor power.
While famed for the accuracy of their software emulations, Arturia also rework their instruments to include optional features that would have been impossible on the original instruments. Arturia have created many subtle improvements to the interface of the Buchla Easel V, in the true spirit of Buchla's legacy. They have also included an extra, ground-breaking synth engine: Gravity. Using an interactive physics engine to create animated, organic sounds, the addition of this powerful new synth engine makes Buchla Easel V a synth that's truly out of the world.
Buchla Easel V is one of four new stunning vintage instrument recreations that are included in V Collection 6 - Arturia's groundbreaking retro synth and keyboard package. Containing 21 instruments, each modeled after a keyboard that changed the face of music as we know it. Within V Collection, you'll find meticulously modeled analog synths, digital powerhouses, incredible performance keyboards, acoustic and electric pianos, organs, a string machine, and even a sampler.
Breathing life back into the most iconic keyboard instruments of all time, V Collection is the ultimate creativity launchpad, and an essential studio tool for the modern music producer.
