Arturia DrumBrute Impact
This is the drum machine you’ve been waiting for.
Combining bold, hard-hitting analog sounds, a monstrous output distortion, performable controls, superb connectivity, and a powerful sequencer, DrumBrute Impact will fill your music with energy and muscle.
A new Brute sound
Putting the focus on “Brute”, DrumBrute Impact features 10 high-energy, refined, punchy analog sounds.
You can also use the exclusive “Color” sound-shapers to introduce unique, per instrument effect for some variation. Boost the harmonic content, add some drive, snap, or crack at the touch of a button, you can even automate tonal changes by creating a “Color” sequence. If you want your drums to push even harder, use the built-in distortion on the output for some drum-optimized crunch.
DrumBrute Impact is a drum machine for musicians and producers who crave raw power and monstrous tone.
Awesome drums made easy
Sharing the same prize-fighting sequencing architecture found in the original DrumBrute, you’ll love the simple, fun, and intuitive sequencer in DrumBrute Impact.
Whether you want to create complex, phasing polyrhythms or straight, pounding rhythms; record a finger-drumming performance; punch in a step-sequenced masterpiece; DrumBrute Impact beats to your rhythm. Use the touch strip to create some real-time glitchy, beat-repeat breakdowns, spice up a single instrument or your whole pattern with a dedicated ‘Random’ knob, and add some syncopation and groove with the ‘Swing’ feature.

Featuring a huge array of sync and connectivity options, you’ll be able to hook up and jam with practically any other synth, sequencer, or MIDI-enabled instrument. Mix on the fly with dedicated controls for every function, multitrack, record, effect, and mix the sound your way with multiple bus outputs.
