Nice analog synth for price

Nigel H., 01.05.2017
This is a great little synth for the money.

I purchased this synth to use in my home studio and i was not disappointed. the sound from this unit is anything but small. Even with one oscillator there is a variety of tones you can produce with this synth. The synth is mono meaning you cannot play chords but it is great for bass and lead tones.

There is a range of waves you can produce and mix through the interesting panel and the filter on the unit is very good. you can also run other instruments through the filter.

The build quality of the unit is very solid and it is made from plastic and metal. The knobs have nice resistance when you turn them and overall the build quality of the unit is rock solid.

The patch section is fun and when you take the time to learn it can yield some very interesting results. There is also a sequencer section which is worth taking the time to learn how to use.

The synth takes a few minutes to warm up and tune itself, as when you initially power it on it takes a few minutes for the pitch to settle. The synth does not run on batteries as per arturia because of the amount of voltage requires to run it. when you hear this synth you will hear why...

overall a great unit and i would recommend this to anyone who is looking to learn about synthesis. the fact that you need to build each sound without presets means you will learn a lot by using this synth.

Bargain synth, update may confuse

05.06.2015
I bought this synth after I noticed it was on discount and was not disappointed. As a newcomer in the world of hardware synths, the Microbrute is a great starting point. One quickly learns the basics of actually creating a sound instead of those presets most of us accustomed to software synths have applied. There is just this unique feeling of twisting actual knobs compared to moving computer mouse on sample synth screen, that's for sure. The keyboard is mini-sized but ok to use, and if you have a MIDI keyboard, just use standard MIDI cable to connect it with Microbrute and you can play the brute sounds with it.

The pitch wheel in my unit is leaning a bit to the left, but there are no performance issues, the thing works as it should. Also, if you update the synth firmware via USB, the step sequencer may go silent. This does not mean that your synth is broken, the Microbrute Connection has just made one extra change to settings it probably shouldn't have. If this happens to you, check the Connection software manual, it should be included in the software installation.

Lastly - this is for the very starters - Microbrute does transmit USB data but requires separate audio input to get audio signal into DAW. So make sure you have an audio interface that can do the job. In DAW Microbrute syncs with the DAW tempo clock just fine if it is connected via USB and the DAW settings are in order.

Then again, I may just put Microbrute on my lap, connect the headphones and try to come up with different sounds. Playing with Microbrute is pure fun, which is normally not the case with soft synths and their seemingly endless menus. If you want to get onboard in the hardware synth world, I cannot think better bang for your buck than Microbrute.
