    Comes with 17 true analog drum sounds and 64-step sequencing

    The Arturia DrumBrute packs 17 different drum sounds: kick 1, kick 2, snare, clap, hi-hat 1, hi-hat 2, conga hi, conga lo, tom hi, tom lo, maracas, rimshot, clave, tambourine, cymbal, reverse cymbal, and zap. Having two flavors of kick drum gives you a lot of flexibility in how you compose your grooves, and the unique analog reverse cymbal is a great way to transition between patterns. Speaking of patterns, the DrumBrute holds 64 patterns with up to 64 steps each.

    Create complex polyrhythms

    We've used a lot of drum machines at Music Experience over the years, and we know that many don't offer much capability when it comes to polyrhythms. The Arturia DrumBrute allows each individual drum track to be any length you like, allowing you to create polyrhythms with any combination of drum sounds.

    Perform with pattern effects, and chain patterns with Song Mode

    The DrumBrute offers performance effects like Pattern Looper (for beat repeats) and Step Repeat (for looping glitch effects) that make it a great instrument to improvise with. Song Mode allows you to chain patterns together into a longer composition, further expanding your ability to perform with the DrumBrute.

    Studio-ready with 12 individual audio outputs

    Once you've created an awesome drum pattern on your drum machine and want to get it into your DAW software for processing or mixing, the last thing you want to do is have to record your drum pattern one drum sound at a time onto separate tracks — that gets old real fast. The Arturia DrumBrute offers 12 individual audio outputs (plus a master mix output), making it easy to record grooves into your computer as multitrack audio.

    Create dynamic grooves with per-track swing, randomness, and accent

    Swing and accent are two of the most common ways to add dynamic interest to a drum machine pattern. Accent is available on each track individually, as you'd expect. Swing can be applied to your pattern as a whole, and you can also apply different swing amounts to individual drum tracks if you choose. DrumBrute also has a randomness option, perfect for creating a more human feel — you can apply that globally or on a per-track basis too.

Come face to face with a reimagining of Michelangelo’s masterwork “The Creation of Adam”, inviting you to explore the near-limitless possibilities these hands-on analog instruments have to offer. With the Creation series, we have crafted the perfect canvas for your creativity.

    Analog Firebrand

    Sometimes it feels like we wait our whole lives to capture that fleeting, ephemeral moment of creative imagination. When we do, it’s worth the wait. Our Creation series was designed to bring you as close as possible to that magic moment. Michelangelo’s fresco is considered one of humanity’s greatest artistic achievements and now you have that inspiration at your fingertips. Feel the energy of the ages every time you make a beat, channel the same spark of creativity that forged that historic masterwork whenever you explore new synth lines, melodies, and textures.

    Celebrate Design

    DrumBrute Creation Creation are analog instruments that twist and shape their electric life-blood into sounds and rhythms. When played - either together or alone - their versatile tone and intuitive controls let you experience the true nature of the much sought-after “analog sound”. The Creation series is a celebration of that elusive, artistic revelation. You’re not just invited to the party, you’re the guest of honor.

      Inspired to Create

      The concept behind Creation is not only to give you great instruments you'll love to play, but also challenge the way you think about drum machines and analog synths, inviting you to use them in new, exciting ways. Want some inspiration?

      Amp it up

      Connect your kick to a saturated bass amp, stick the snare in a hot, overdriven guitar amp, put your master through some grungy PA speakers, and mic up the results. Every drum has its own output, so the sound-shaping possibilities are almost endless

      Get Brutal

      Plug the headphone output of DrumBrute Creation to the aux input of MicroBrute Creation, and slam the “Brute Factor” up for earthshaking, unpredictable, and awesomely fun results. Balance the drum tones to find the “sweet spot” in the madness.

      The rim method

      Activate the “Step On Gate” mode for MicroBrute Creation in the Arturia MIDI Control Center, and use DrumBrute Creation’s rimshot track to trigger the sequencer of MicroBrute Creation, letting you unleash polyrhythmic melodic sequence fury!

      Layer cake

      Even without using multiple outputs, the DrumBrute Creation can be layered, effected, and mixed in your DAW to create full, heavy-hitting tracks in practically any contemporary genre, from trap to industrial, techno to retrowave.

      Synth pedal board

      The Creation series are genuine analog, electronic instruments that love being shaped and honed with effects and amps. You wouldn’t plug an electric guitar straight into a PA, so why do it with a synth or drum machine? Experience analog power!

      Modular mayhem

      Use DrumBrute Creation’s instrument or clock outputs to trigger Eurorack modules or sequences on vintage synths, and rewire MicroBrute Creation’s patch bay to create sounds that are totally, uniquely yours.

      Rediscover DrumBrute

      The most versatile, performance drum machine ever. Sharing the same sound and sequencing architecture with the original DrumBrute, the limited edition DrumBrute Creation will be your ideal synth drum machine companion. Languishing in sequencing hell? Beats lacking heat? DrumBrute Creation is your salvation. It features 17 tweakable synth drum sounds, each with their own dedicated output for maximum tone-shaping while performing, and opening up exciting multi-track post-processing options in your DAW. Create polyrhythmic patterns up to 64 steps, save your sequences, and chain them together in a song mode. Synchronize with practically any other pro audio gear, and create dynamic filter sweeps with the high-pass and low-pass Steiner-Parker filter on the master. This is the drum machine you’ve been waiting for.
