A Future Classic!
*Theo E* 28.12.2019
Being in the lookout for an analog drum machine I stumbled upon this little beast! The DrumBrute Impact made quite an impression to me, considering the price and the features:

There are 10 clean & punchy analog sounds which sit well in a modern track. The kick and the snares are the most prominent, however the entire drum set sounds tight and well thought out musically.

My most praised features are the "Color" function which transforms each sound, and the FM drum, that acts like a wildcard! Meaning you can transform it to many other sounds. Finally the distortion at the master bus makes the sound gritty and harsh, adding that special "brute" sauce!

Although I'm using it via DAW, I enjoyed playing live, using the countless sequencer features, and building patterns easily! I'm sure it will serve you well in a live gig.

To the cons, I would add the lack of a rimshot, and midi control over the sound parameters! Also a big minus is the lack of a complete list of SysEx messages in the manual.

Nevertheless in regards to it's sound, I think this drum machine is a future classic!

Cool little machine but...
Ttn1 09.04.2023
It is a cheap little machine so don't expect this to cover all your needs, Behringer drum machines cost about the same and offer much more both in terms of sound and versatility.
The sound is good, the kick can sound ok on any type of electronic music, from hip hop to techno it is usable but this drum voice should have had one more parameter to play with e.g. a pitch envelope in order to sculpt the sound even further.
The snare and claps are ok as well, but the biggest letdown are the toms which are almost inaudible, really a missed opportunity which Arturia doesn't seem to care to fix or even aknowledge (I suppose it could be fixed through firmware update) those looking for a drum machine that can do toms should look elsewhere.
The coolest feature here would be the FM drum (which you can sculpt) and polyrythmic options for each voice.
What makes this machine stand out though is it's small size, I use it for hybrid dj sets (synced from traktor) which also serves perfectly as a clock generator for my Octatrack and keystep, syncs perfectly.
The build quality is pretty good, looks durable.
All in all a cool little machine but to pricey considering what is outhere especially from Behringer.

Incredible piece for the price
Oldslav 10.12.2021
The sounds are good, controls are very intuitive, this piece packs a lot of functionality. Individual outputs for the instruments are very useful.The only downside for me is a song length, 16 patterns of up to 64 steps results in just 64 bars max. But after all, I really enjoy using this drum machine

Great analog drum machine
Mad_Beaver 10.03.2020
This is an amazing analog drum machine. However, you have to have some understanding of its capabilities, because even though it offers a good amount of controls, you can't dramatically change the sound of it.

The Arturia sequencer is just great, very intuitive and easy to use. It is convenient to enter patterns both live and in step mode. The only thing that is missing for me is that it can't record automation of the knobs.

I would love to see stereo output in this device, though it provides separate mini-jack outputs for kick, snare, hats and fm drum.

Overall it is really good offering for the price and its sounds can fit a lot of music genres.
