The Softer Side of the Minibrute
« on: August 05, 2013, 03:12:50 am »
Hi everyone. First time poster and I have only owned the Brute for a couple of days, but I am already inundated with ideas for sound design on this puppy. It is obvious that the brute excels at those metallic, harsh, biting lead or bass patches. I am in love with the metalizer function on lead sounds. In love. This thing just exudes versatility; its quite impressive.

But I have noticed that the Brute also has a sweet spot for some softer, warm leads that one normally associates with brands like Moog and Roland. Try mixing a  pure triangle wave (50%), with a pure sawtooth (30%) and the sub-osc (50%) on sine wave at -1 octave. With the filter on low-pass mode at a cutoff of about 55%, and the resonance between 50 and 60 percent--you have a smooth, creamy lead with a great low end that blends into a mix beautifully.

I am sure other people have also discovered settings like this that bring out the softer side of the Minibrute? Do share.

Glad to be a part of the community now and I look forward to sharing ideas/tracks with everyone. Thanks to Arturia for making such a fantastic piece of kit.

Try adding a little bit of brute factor. Also experiment with the high pass filter. Put the cutoff into the lower quadrant, and the resonance at about 50%. It gives emphasis to the bass frequencies. You might also add a little vibrato using the sine wave.
