Make your statement with the Arturia DrumBrute Impact Analog Drum Machine. This drum machine produces aggressive analog drums sounds with instinctive sequencing for all of your intense drums sound needs. With this completely addictive hands on drum machine experience, you can enjoy making your music in the studio, at home or on the go!

Aggressive Analog Sounds
Putting the focus on “Brute”, DrumBrute Impact features 10 high-energy, refined, punchy analog sounds. It uses “Color” sound-shapers to introduce unique, per-instrument effects for some tonal variation. Boost the harmonic content, add some drive, snap, or crack at the touch of a button, or create automated changes by creating a “Color” sequence. If you want your drums to push even harder, there’s a built-in distortion with drum-optimized crunch. The DrumBrute Impact is a drum machine for musicians and producers who crave raw power and awesome tone, complementing its cleaner sounding brother: DrumBrute.

Instinctive Sequencing
Sharing the same prize-winning, prize-fighting sequencing architecture of the original DrumBrute, you’ll love the simple, fun, and intuitive sequencer in DrumBrute Impact. Create complex phasing polyrhythms and straight, pounding rhythms; record a finger-drumming performance; punch in a step-sequenced masterpiece; everything is a joy. 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.

Addictive Hands-On Fun
Get away from computer screens, say goodbye to sub-menus, and jump into the world of tactile satisfaction. Connect to your other gear, sync up, and make some music the old-school way. 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.

Fun, easy to use rhythm machine.


Recently bought the Impact and was immediately useful out of the box. Fairly intuitive and solidly built. The distortion effect and depth really add to an Alternative/Indutrial vibe as well as the "colour" parameter. The decay and pitch pots are solid and possess a smooth sweep. Adjustment of these parameters cannot be held in pattern memory, so it lends itself better to live use. This is not a great limitation, but causes the individual to consider the Impacts place where studio and live use are concerned.



Exactly what I needed


Awesome drum machine. It's simple enough to spur creativity but complicated enough to keep it interesting. Works great as a midi controller too. Plays well with other gear and syncs to my DAW perfectly.



Great sounds and usability at a fair price.


The sound is robust for an analog drum machine. The kick thuds and the snare cracks, with nice sound manipulation and routing options. The toms and cowbell are a bit bland, but do the trick. And the sequencer is easy to learn, with 64 steps to get intricate beats with.



Easy Order


Great Live, build quality (2020) great no issues (30 days daily use)




Great live sound


First Drum Machine, sounds fantastic through monitor/subwoofer, great live performance unit, small footprint big sound through a decent mixing board, I don't own a DAW or computer so haven't tried that end yet though, ran it through 20W Fender Champion Guitar Amp for kicks, effects help expand sound, plays nice with guitar pedals too like Reverb Delay and Flanger. Kids (8 and 10) dove right in without manual using their Ipad Garage Band experience. Sequencer is easy to program too. Clap is pretty useless to me, but is an open pad for shift/reassign via MIDI, Next step is to explore MIDI with MicrokorgXL. Shipping FedEX came on scheduled date, double-boxed. Happy Customer, Thanks Sam.



Fun Machine


Playing this machine is FUN. The sounds are all very good and the color/accent variations really let you make some interesting patterns. The pattern roller function makes live improving super fun.



Awesome awesomeness


Loving every moment of the sounds





One of the best drum sings I Got



Such A Cool Drum Machine!


This is one of the coolest drum machines Ive ever played. The analog knobs allow you to manipulate each sounds as they loop. The 808's and snares are awesome on this machine. I love the distortion effect it allows you to put on all your sounds/loop at once. This is an awesome piece of gear.
