DrumBrute Impact features 10 discrete drum sounds each with their own independent sequencer track. Hands-on analog controls let you adjust and tweak the sounds on the fly, letting you tailor DrumBrute Impact’s sound for tight, choppy performances. Open up the decay to let the sounds breathe; raise the pitch and tone for crisp, snappy parts or lower them for big, booming power. The choice is yours.
On top of independent volume controls, every drum aside from the cowbell features a selection of unique parameters that vary its tone, pitch, shape, or synth properties.
DrumBrute Impact features one of the most intuitive, advanced step sequencers ever put into hardware.
First seen in our award-winning BeatStep Pro, and refined with the original DrumBrute, the 64-step sequencer found in DrumBrute Impact takes things to a whole new level. Packed with features that make editing and performing simple and fun, this powerful sequencer is fresh, exciting, and will take your rhythms to another level.
The swing feature can add a groovy feel to everything at once, or for individual instruments by selecting the “Current Track” button on the drum sound you want to apply it to
For when you want something, but aren’t sure and don’t really mind what, the Randomness knob lets you dial in random hits. Like Swing, this can be applied globally or just for individual instruments.
Should you wish to go unquantized, DrumBrute Impact lets you preserve the natural feel of your pad performances.
The color of sound
Introducing “Color”, DrumBrute Impact’s unique sound-shaper that adds another layer of awesome, and gives each sound another performable parameter for you to play with.
Color can be activated per instrument to give a new, exciting tonal variation. Whether it’s adding drive to the Kick, altering the tone of the Cymbal, or maxing out the pitch envelope of the FM Drum, activating Color will change the sonic character of your drums in exciting, sometimes unexpected ways.
Each instrument channel has its own unique Color implementation, meaning that you can also automate and record changes by using the step sequencer, letting you modulate and experiment with your tone as you progress through your sequences. Check out some examples of how Color can be used to make some subtle and not-so-subtle changes to a drum pattern.
