At the heart of MicroBrute SE is its voltage-controlled oscillator. With three mixable waveforms, you can creatively shape your sound in countless ways. Along with the Saw, Triangle and Square waves, MicroBrute SE gives you waveshapers - Ultrasaw, Pulse Width, Metalizer - that modify and animate the sound, for an incredibly broad palette of sonic possibilities. There's also a new Overtone generator that delivers additional harmonics, from one octave down to a fifth above your base pitch. Plus, there's a Sub>5th control that lets you continuously sweep the spectrum. It all adds up to the biggest-sounding single-oscillator synth you're likely to hear.

Steiner-Parker filter deliver a huge range of sonic possibilities
A Steiner-Parker filter is onboard to help give the MicroBrute SE its unique sound. First used on the classic Synthacon synthesizer in the 1970's, this diode ladder filter gives you Low pass, Band pass and High pass modes that deliver a staggering range of sonic possibilities. If you want to craft behemoth basses and snarling leads, you've found your axe.

Step sequencer: a source of fresh ideas and endless inspiration
The MicroBrute SE's step sequencer is a compositional tool that will open up new creative avenues. Step-input notes and rests to easily build interesting rhythmic patterns, then transpose your sequences up and down using the keyboard. Let your sequences run while you tweak your sounds in realtime. A well-implemented step sequencer (and this one is) is a source of fresh ideas and endless inspiration!

Mod matrix gives you semi-modular flexibility
A patchable modulation matrix on a synth at this price? You bet! The MicroBrute SE's Mod Matrix is a flexible system of CV routing that gives you new ways of modulating internal sounds, as well as excellent interfacing with other synths. If you're looking for an affordable first analog synth you won't outgrow, the MicroBrute SE is a perfect choice.

  • Lots of Sound in a Small Package

The Microbrute is a great way to get into a pure analog synth at a reasonable price. The wheels and knobs feel very solid. The oscillator can produce a blend of sub fifth, sawtooth, square and triangle waves to produce a rich, complex tone. The Brute Factor and Metalizer knobs let you further expand its sound. The Steiner-Parker multimode filter is smooth and dependable. What's most impressive is the cv inputs and output, which can be used to connect to other synth gear, and the audio input, which allows you to plug in a guitar or any other instrument and run it through the synth's filter and effects. The keys are necessarily small, but if you require a larger keyboard step up to the Minibrute.
