Warfrogs - Arturia Minibrute

Recommended Posts

I got myself an Arturia Minibrute the other day and after unboxing the thing set straight to recording - boshed this out in a few hours. It's a wonderful bit of kit for the money, very intuitive and fun to use. Dialling in/modulating sounds is a real pleasure, now I'm thinking of making more and more electronic music and perhaps investing in some hardware to make creating beats more intuitive than sequencing in the DAW. I hooked up a midi cable to sync the brute with ableton for the purposes of synching the LFO and arpeggiator with the arrangement tempo, which worked a treat with no faffing about.

This track is all minibrute besides a software 707 beat, some delay added in the DAW and a track of acoustic guitar to add a bit of space.

Thanks! Yeah I like it a lot. Just wish it was polyphonic but you can't have everything...

I must say I really like the filter. When I first used it I thought it sounded a bit dull, but I had previously owned a Nord Lead where I was hesitant to really crank the resonance because it sounded so harsh - not so the minibrute. Going hell for leather with the resonance is positively encouraged and really makes the filter come alive.

Another minibrute recording - I finally worked out how to slice up samples in Ableton and assign them to the drum rack. All of the drum sounds in this are synthesised with the minibrute then assigned to the rack in Ableton where I sequenced them. In fact all sounds in this are the minibrute besides the piano. Now I know how to do this I'm probably going to go a bit sampling mad and pretend I'm in Animal Collective or something.
