MiniBrute V - Ferocious Analog Softsynth arrives from ArturiaReleased in 2012, when analog innovation was in a lull, MiniBrute set out to reinvigorate and revolutionize the scene with its small, affordable analog architecture that could be used by beginners and pros alike.

Co-designed and engineered by craftsman synth legend Yves Usson, with a pure analog signal path and several innovative features MiniBrute set a new standard and became legendary.

12 years later, MiniBrute has been reinvented...


Capturing the unruly and aggressive character of MiniBrute while enhancing its usability.

MiniBrute V not only recreates the distinctive analog grit of its hardware predecessor,but elevates it with modern flexibility, expanded polyphony and a built-in FX rack - add the brute spirit to your production.


_8-Voice Polyphony with Mono Mode
Experience the raw power of the original MiniBrute now as an 8-voice polysynth, with the option to switch to mono mode for classic monophonic sounds.

_Built-in FX Rack
Twist and transform MiniBrute V’s analog energy with an all-in-one FX rack, featuring 4 FX slots and 17 FX types to further shape and enhance your sound.

_Pure VCO Power
Mix up to 4 different waveshapes and a sub-oscillator for added punch, alongside signal enhancers such as the Ultrasaw and Metalizer.

_World class presets
From high voltage basses and leads to soaring pads and metallic effects, with over 150 presets to choose from, find your sound and tweak it to perfection.

Engage to create huge mono sounds as well as detune effects and stereo spread.

_Patch Browser
Easily navigate through a collection of 150 presets showcasing its versatility, ranging from classic analog tones to experimental sounds.

_Unique Analog Character
Capture the unmistakable raw analog power of the MiniBrute, offering a character that stands out from other synthesizers on the market.

_Updated Hardware Panel Design
Inspired by the original MiniBrute but with a modern twist, featuring a sleek 3D hardware design in line with Arturia's 'Noir' aesthetic.


_Explore the Filter Cutoff & Resonance
Really explore the relationship between Brute Factor and Filter Cutoff to see what makes the Minibrute so special

_Use the Oscillator mixer with intent
Due to its complexity, pushing the levels will start driving the filter’s non-linearities. So use them with intent and don’t just push the levels to the max

_Change the oscillator levels
The Mixer levels will affect the Brute Factor’s behaviour by saturating the feedback path. Change the oscillator levels to reign in the Brute Factor, or make it more aggressive

_Try fine modulations for huge results
Though having limited modulation options, changes to the filter cutoff via the LFO, Aftertouch of Velocity can have their impact boosted by the brute factor.

_Get more organic and natural response to playing
With and added dedicated Velocity modulation to both the Amp Envelope and Filter Envelope

_Explore the ‘wave’ parameter
The differences of response of the original HW have been modelled inside the dispersion panel under the ‘wave’ parameter. So make sure to play with it when trying to match your own HW unit!

_Explore more sound design options
The envelope speeds switch has been removed, allowing the envelopes to go from their fastest setting (1ms) to their slowest one (25s)

_Customize the tone
With a dedicated ‘wave shaper’ to each Oscillator, these include the Ultrasaw (similar to a supersaw) and Metalizer (Triangle wave shaping) that are quite unique!

_Discover The Steiner Parker filter
Quite different from the more traditional ‘ladder’ type filters found in Analogue synths, it is both very smooth at the bottom and very harsh at the top, allowing for a very wide range of tone.
