Ok, thanks. I guess Ask Audio jumped the gun a bit, they mention Thursday as being the launch day.

Anyway, curious to hear it, feels like a better feature balance than the regular DrumBrute. Should play nice with a MicroBrute.

No individual outs. Looks like a microbrute version of the drumbrute.

This is a leak, definitely a leak, I can find traces and hi res images elsewhere

There are four individual outs labelled "Kick" "Snares" "Hi Hats" and "FM Drum".

Article says two snares and one kick, hats, two toms, cymbal, and an FM voice with a few editable parameters. Plus, they added back the Brute distortion. Looks like Arturia is trying to drink Uli's milkshake.

I love the idea of an affordable analog drum machine that can get a little weird. I just hope it sounds better than the DB.

"...and arguably the best sequencer on the planet"

Uh, no. 64 steps with polyrhythm and swing and stuff is cool. This does not make it the best sequencer on the planet, not by a huge margin. Maybe it's the best x0x-style sequencer or something, but that's just one flavor of sequencer. There are a slew of other boxes, both in and out of production, that can run rings around this kind of setup w.r.t. sequencing. For instance, what if you want to record a linear sequence that's 120 bars long? Or have 64 midi channels on separate outputs? Or perform actually advanced editing (like applying swing to regions of a track, rather than as a blanket over the whole track)? I mean, it's just an x0x box, but still, this is more than a bit breathless.

Source: Arturia Announce Drumbrute Impact : Ask.Audio

EDIT: Just so we're fair, here's the full marketing blurb on the sequencer --

'DrumBrute Impact features a polyrhythmic 64-step, song-capable sequencer supported by a host of easy-to-use performance controls. Add Swing, inject some Randomness, glitch it up with a Step Repeater, quickly spice up patterns with the Roller, add Accents, and even record Unquantized should you wish.'

the Ask.Audio blurb is very badly written.

If this has its snare and kick sorted it'll be what the DB should have been, crossing fingers

Well, snare 2 is billed as a "trashy snare with a hint of clap" which sounds fun. The write-up on the kick is vague, so there's no telling if it's a take on their DB 808/909 style models, or something new.

I don't know that congas and disco zap were a huge loss, but hey, at least there's a cowbell.

Congas are always good imo - zaps can die

I'd personally prefer zaps; congas and cowbells are corny shyte that belongs in a museum right next to other neolithic crap like "bossa nova," whereas Zap can be tuned into bass!

I know it's not a popular opinion, but I really like my DB. It's definitely a machine that requires a bit of work to get the best sound out of it, but I'm happy with the results I get and I usually layer drums anyway. I am interested to hear how this one sounds though.

With the DrumBrute being 375 EUR, this seems rather expensive?

Edit: After seeing the official announcement and finding out it has more than 4 sounds, I'm taking that statement back. Looks like everything I liked from the original in a handy package with tweaked sounds. Nice one!

for a long while i used my fs1r as a 4 part fm drum module. great stuff.

yeah an 8 part fs1r engine tied to a qy700 seq and rs7k type interface and youd have the making of one of the best dms ever....

I'm surprised this does not have wood sides.

This looks like it could be a lot of fun.. not sure if the FM engine will make up for the 'lack of clap' but we'll see. Price point seems about right. This will drop down to $250 after a while.

The second snare has some clap aspect to it:
SNARE 2: a trashy snare with a hint of clap, with adjustable tone and decay.
We'll have to hear it to be clear on what that means however.

a proper demo as usual from loopop

this little baby is actually really interesting, good sequencer+a few tricks, micro timing, non quantised recording, per step mod on colour, per step rolls etc, basics covered, nice.

for those wondering, snare 2 is practically an analogue clap - just hit colour

There's a ridiculous amount of video on this

Anyway, this is really well made, well done Arturia.
