Seannn Posted November 28, 2013 Share Posted November 28, 2013 At the price, I couldn't resist. Picked it up on Tuesday. It complements the Korg MS-20 Mini that I bought a few months ago, after suffering from a bout of GAS as a result of craving an analog monophonic synthesizer. If you have some extra cash lying around and want to add to your synth trove, the MicroBrute is an absolute must. The keys are small, but they don't bother me. They seem a bit bigger than a microKORG's (they certainly feel better), but I could be wrong about the size (I've passionately avoided the microKORG, so I couldn't tell you). The synth is built in a strong metal chasis, and the knobs and slides are big, and feel of good quality. You can read up about the specs. Basically, you have one VCO, as well as a sub-oscillator that, interestingly, you can tune up a fifth. This is an awesome addition to a synth that's already a rascal. The brute factor is ridiculous. This synth sounds HUGE, despite its size! I really couldn't believe my ears. I think I prefer it to the MS-20 Mini for more of the dubstep-sounding bass sounds. There's also a sequencer and mini patch bay that adds to the fun, and could make this synth a great live addition. Haven't tried it with effects yet, but I imagine that some delay and reverb, and even fuzz, would be welcomed. I'll leave you with the review below by Sonic State. Have any of you picked this up?
