the First Blow
Create your perfect kit using the best analog sounds
Every single one of the seventeen drum & percussion parts is 100% analog, and carries the savage DNA of the Brute synth family. DrumBrute is fully polyphonic, so all of its sounds can be played simultaneously and twisted by the nasty two-mode 12dB Steiner-Parker filter.
Soft, sharp, pure, trashy, or devastating... DrumBrute lets you create an exciting, personal sound palette that will electrify your music.

Producer - Composer - Will.I.Am, MadonnaI give this The Brutalicious Drum Machine of 2016!
Producer - ComposerEvery sound can be manipulated to fit the bill – in fact the functionality is as good as any drum machine I’ve ever used (including the original Linndrum). I would recommend it highly as an essential and intuitive songwriter and producer’s tool.
ComposerI just love this thing, it has so much attitude. It’s like a great retro-sounding drum machine.
