Arturia’s latest coup. The MiniBrute 2S comes without any traditional keyboard, but with a massive hardware step-sequencer (triple-layered!), including rubber-pad keys plus sequencer-extras, such as swing factor and presets of exotic scales. The synthesizer section is identical to the MiniBrute 2, including that massive 48-jack-patchbay.
Now, taking a (very) close look at the patchbay, lots of “Ah’s” and “Oh’s” might pass your lips. Heaps of ins and outs here, heaps of possibilities to inter-act with modular synthesizers. Figuring out that there’s even an inverter (very nice), the question arises, if a battery of multiple-jacks wouldn’t also have been necessary.
But ok, talking about multiples, there are external possibilities and many different solutions in abundance. Be that as it may, the little MiniBrute 2S is a compact synthesizer with triple-layered step-sequencer, likely to become a dream-machine for performance artists on stage.
