brute factor is fancy name for filter feedback overload. Multidrive seems to be (based on sound and some subtle clues in video) different thing. When Herb went on discussing m'drive for a few seconds graph appeared in top right corner. It seems that m'drive works like this: from full CCW up to mid position of multidrive control, pre filter gain is increased, thus overdriving the filter, and from mid position to full CW, post filter gain is increased (pre filter is left at same level) thus overloading VCA. Not exactly something profoundly new but very nice way to control both VCF and VCA overdrive with single pot.
BTW, I like the sound of this thing more than Minitaur and much more than LPs/Vgers. Clean but not cold, and very full sounding.
And, my guess is that this is not Minibrute competitor, I'll bet it will be in +$1000 range (if they put out $600/$700 twin VCO synth with one knob per parameter UI it would make Minitaur and LP range pointless)
