4-Main Functions

Connections

You can connect DrumBrute in many ways depending on your configuration. Here is a setup example.

Using DrumBrute with a computer

DrumBrute is more than a classic drum machine: it’s also a USB class-compliant device. So at its most basic level it can be connected to any computer with a USB port, and its pads can used as input devices for various applications. The included MIDI Control Center software allows you to specify which MIDI notes and commands will be transmitted by the pads and transport buttons, respectively.

Using DrumBrute with external devices

DrumBrute can be used to sequence external instruments that you can then layer with its internal sounds. If your other instruments have a sequencer, you can synchronize them to DrumBrute using the MIDI clock from the MIDI ports or the USB port, or use the Clock input and output to send and receive DIN 24 or DIN 48 sync messages or even a single pulse per step.
