MiniBrute SE shares the same physical footprint as the original MiniBrute, but builds upon this compact and analogue monosynth in both looks and features, including brushed aluminium casing with wooden sides.
An all-new step Sequencer expands playing options with the MiniBrute SE — six Pattern sequences with up to 64 steps each to create multiple musical phrases. Yet it is capable of so much more than simply replaying pre-programmed Pattern sequences ad infinitum. Users can create new musical phrases from existing ones by changing the playback Mode, Gate Len (timing), and Swing settings in real-time from the clearly labelled front panel — perfect for inspiring new musical ideas and creating exciting live performances on the fly.
MiniBrute SE features a pure analogue signal path, a multi-wave Oscillator and Sub Osc combined with a huge-sounding Steiner-Parker multimode Filter (revised by Nyle Steiner himself), wide-ranging modulation capabilities, Ultrasaw (generating shimmering sawtooth waveforms), Metalizer (adding extreme triangle waveform-induced harmonics), LFO (with sample and hold), and full USB/MIDI/CV connectivity.
