Zero-compromise analog drum machine.

Whether for step-sequenced beat making, real-time sound tweaking, or finger drumming performance, DrumBrute sets a new precedent for ergonomics, sequencing, editing, and pure sonic power.

DrumBrute will surprise even the most hardcore analog fans, opening up exciting new avenues of sound creation using its heavy kicks, punchy snares, lightning hi-hats, and shimmering cymbals.

the Sound

The key to your dance floor anthem.

DrumBrute’s core is made of seventeen 100%-analog drum and percussion instruments, so whatever drum sound you are looking for, DrumBrute has the solution. Any genre, style, or mood can be created with ease. As it’s made of independent modules, the sound triggering circuitry allows for full polyphony, meaning that all the instruments can be used simultaneously for an unrestricted creative experience.

Among the 17 drum sounds, you will find re-imagined legends like 808 and 909 kicks, old-school rim, claves and clap, as well as incredibly usable, modern sounds like snappy & aggressive snares, cutting "zap", as well as the first ever analog reverse cymbal sound.

Is there anything more instinctive than tweaking the parameters of an analog instrument?

We didn’t think so. DrumBrute lets you adjust the tonal quality of each individual drum using 24 parameters, and mix your levels to perfection. Creating your perfect beat is a simple and natural process. Want a chilled, slow-motion atmosphere? Lengthen the decays, lower the pitches and give your kick a lazy sweep. Crave a nasty, cutting beat? Raise the snap level and the pitches, and tighten up the decay.

parker filter

The beating heart of a drum machine, the soul of a synthesizer

DrumBrute integrates a remarkable two-mode Steiner-Parker filter which allows you to create really dynamic, interesting effects. The filter can be set to low-pass mode, high-pass mode or bypassed entirely. The cut-off and resonance controls let you get really hands on, giving you huge scope to shape the sound of your drums. Add depth to your beat, emphasize its tone, make it dirty, and animate it with live sweep effects.

The built-in advanced step sequencer is one of the most important aspects of DrumBrute.

The focus on workflow was taken to the extreme: 16 highly reactive step buttons so you never miss a beat; individual & global swing parameters to add feel; randomness controls that transform your pattern from unpredictable to completely chaotic… all with a simple and intuitive interface.

Based on our award-winning BeatStep Pro sequencer, this 64-step sequencer goes even further by implementing exciting new features.








01 Swing

The swing feature shifts one step over two which is perfect for getting a groovy feel. This parameter can be applied separately for each instrument or globally.

The swing level starts at 0% and is then progressively increased.

02 Randomness

The Randomness factor, that can be individual or global, can transform your pattern from unpredictable to completely chaotic by giving to each step a certain probability to be played or shut.

Randomness is first only applied to the maracas and then to every instruments.

03 Unquantized Recording

The swing feature shifts one step over two which is perfect for getting a groovy feel. This parameter can be applied separately for each instrument or globally.

This demo uses the unquantized recording to create flams and an overall unstable feel.

04 Polyrhythm

Lose yourself in an endless, evolving sequence by using DrumBrute’s polyrhythm feature. This lets you assign different pattern lengths for each instrument, creating an effect of perpetual motion.

Five instruments appear progressively. Each one has a different pattern length which create never-ending looping/rhythm variation.

05 Step Repeat

The exclusive step repeat feature lets you subdivide a step in 2, 3 or 4 sub-steps, allowing to breathe life into your fills without changing overall resolution for your patterns.

Focus on the hi-hat pattern to hear the powerful fills you can create with this feature.

06 Accents

Drawing inspiration from classic vintage drum machines, we also added an accent feature which gives certain hits additional emphasis, giving your pattern a more dynamic feel.

The accents are used to turn this linear pattern into a hip-hop snare march.

07 Roller

The roller allows you to accelerate the creation of your pattern by repeating a sound at a given interval (1/4, 1/8, 1/16 or 1/32) to fill certain step of your pattern.

Hi-hat is played using the roller and then recorded and looped.


This is the true meaning of the word “connection”

DrumBrute offers amazing connectivity options, letting it fit into practically any set-up. Want to process each drum sound individually or record multi-track audio? Use DrumBrute’s 12 discrete instrument outputs. Want to synchronize your vintage analogue gear, DAW software, or connect to your bandmate’s modular system?

DrumBrute features comprehensive MIDI, Clock and USB integration. We’ve even included both standard sizes of headphone socket so you don’t have to waste time looking for adapters.

DrumBrute is the backbone of your creativity.
