DrumBrute is a 100% analog drum machine & sequencer designed with performance and in-depth sound editing at its heart. DrumBrute offers seventeen true analog sounds, unique performance effects, modern step sequencer, ease of use, and great connectivity.

The sound of DrumBrute is based on the best-of-the-best classic analog drum sounds. Sound profiles were created from the past but then the circuits were designed to build up DrumBrute’s own sound signature. Two styles of kick drums, wide ranging snare and clap setting, two hi hats with tone and separate decay times, reverse cymbal, zap and more.

DrumBrute is designed to give musicians the same great hands-on experience they get from other award winning Brute instruments. All sound parameters can be changed instantly and set with the intuitive interface. DrumBrute is truly easy to use right out of the box!

Each one of DrumBrute’s 64 sequences can contain up to 64 steps, and can be chained together in a song mode. Despite this massive performance power, punching in your perfect beat is simple and fast. Fans of vintage drum machines will feel right at home with the familiar layout.

Every feature has its own dedicated button, knob, or pad, so you’ll spend less time navigating endless sub-menus and more time making music.

DrumBrute is not only about creating a beat: it’s also about tweaking it and making it evolve in real time! DrumBrute adds loads of innovative features like our Step Repeat, Pattern Looper, Mute/Solo groups, song mode, Randomness and Swing functions per track. Finger drummers will love the ability to play quantised or semiquantised on ultra sensitive pads.

DrumBrute boasts dedicated audio outputs for each instrument channel giving almost limitless options for external processing and multitrack recording; 3.5mm and ¼” headphone outputs so you’ll never have to hunt out an adapter again; and it can act as a fully-fledged MIDI interface to control your DAW. DrumBrute is an essential tool for the modern producer.

With rugged housing, chunky pads, and wiggle-free knobs, DrumBrute can be relied upon to perform show after show. Always striving to improve with every new release, Arturia have created a strong, enduring instrument that’s ready for life on the road.

DrumBrute is the only analog drum machine in its price category to offer as much as 12 separate audio outputs! DrumBrute is a swiss army knife for syncing your gear. It will basically sync with any set up: Eurorack, vintage Roland gear, Korg Volca, popular DAWs, MIDI devices…

IS goo did you nee it


I feel it does the work and perhaps there are many ways to do the same but, can't seem to Justify it



Awesome studio addition and perfect for getting into analog!


The response is quick and and the analog kick are powerful. I originally got it to spice up my percussion section and it was perfect. The patch outputs on the back allow me to run my mother 32 as a custom instruments, and patch out the other instruments to analog fx, and the high and low pass filters are clean and offer an awesome way to add suspense to the tracks I'm working on!



Great Entry Level Analog Drum Machine


I like the ease of use. While I suggest that you download the user manual, its not necessary. You can figure out the basic functions straight out of the box and by viewing a couple of YouTube vids. I use this primarily in electronic music production. I layer it with samples, found sounds, etc. to create some interesting textures. Considering the price, its a great entry level analog drum machine. Wish that some of the sounds didn't share the same generator but you can find some sweet spots with a little patience and by adding some effects and EQ. Separate instrument outs is a great feature. Connection to Ableton Live is straightforward via USB. 9/10 Kick #2, Clap, Tambourine, Reverse Cymbal, Maracas are standout sounds.



Best purchase


Awesome. Waited too long to invest in this



Great Action, Wonderful Sound


Arturia's drumbrute is a beautiful little drum machine that packs a lot of punch! With a record and playback ability, this is honestly one of the best products for aspiring drummers who lack hand-eye coordination like myself. The knobs are responsive and easy to turn, making changing the tone a simple task.
