CREATION EDITION TOUCHED BY INSPIRATION
Enshrined in black and metallic, emblazoned with historic art, and galvanized with creative fire, meet the limited edition Creation series. Our iconic DrumBrute and MicroBrute analog instruments are now available for a limited time in an exciting, audacious new design. DrumBrute Creation and MicroBrute Creation feature the same award-winning sound, controls, and architecture of their predecessors, but feature a whole new look. Come face to face with a reimagining of Michelangelo’s masterwork “The Creation of Adam”, inviting you to explore the near-limitless possibilities these hands-on analog instruments have to offer. With the Creation series, we have crafted the perfect canvas for your creativity.
Sometimes it feels like we wait our whole lives to capture that fleeting, ephemeral moment of creative imagination. When we do, it’s worth the wait. Our Creation series was designed to bring you as close as possible to that magic moment. Michelangelo’s fresco is considered one of humanity’s greatest artistic achievements and now you have that inspiration at your fingertips. Feel the energy of the ages every time you make a beat, channel the same spark of creativity that forged that historic masterwork whenever you explore new synth lines, melodies, and textures.
Inspired to Create
The concept behind Creation is not only to give you great instruments you'll love to play, but also challenge the way you think about drum machines and analog synths, inviting you to use them in new, exciting ways. Want some inspiration.
Amp it up
Connect your kick to a saturated bass amp, stick the snare in a hot, overdriven guitar amp, put your master through some grungy PA speakers, and mic up the results. Every drum has its own output, so the sound-shaping possibilities are almost endless
Plug the headphone output of DrumBrute Creation to the aux input of MicroBrute Creation, and slam the “Brute Factor” up for earthshaking, unpredictable, and awesomely fun results. Balance the drum tones to find the “sweet spot” in the madness.
The rim method
Activate the “Step On Gate” mode for MicroBrute Creation in the Arturia MIDI Control Center, and use DrumBrute Creation’s rimshot track to trigger the sequencer of MicroBrute Creation, letting you unleash polyrhythmic melodic sequence fury.
Even without using multiple outputs, both MicroBrute Creation and DrumBrute Creation can be layered, effected, and mixed in your DAW to create full, heavy-hitting tracks in practically any contemporary genre, from trap to industrial, techno to retrowave.
Synth pedal board
The Creation series are genuine analog, electronic instruments that love being shaped and honed with effects and amps. You wouldn’t plug an electric guitar straight into a PA, so why do it with a synth or drum machine? Experience analog power.
Use DrumBrute Creation’s instrument or clock outputs to trigger Eurorack modules or sequences on vintage synths, and rewire MicroBrute Creation’s patch bay to create sounds that are totally, uniquely yours.
Sharing the same sound and sequencing architecture with the original DrumBrute, the limited edition DrumBrute Creation will be your ideal synth drum machine companion.
Languishing in sequencing hell? Beats lacking heat? DrumBrute Creation is your salvation. It features 17 tweakable synth drum sounds, each with their own dedicated output for maximum tone-shaping while performing, and opening up exciting multi-track post-processing options in your DAW. Create polyrhythmic patterns up to 64 steps, save your sequences, and chain them together in a song mode. Synchronize with practically any other pro audio gear, and create dynamic filter sweeps with the high-pass and low-pass Steiner-Parker filter on the master.
