4.2 / 5

  • Loaded with 16 sampled and synthesized drum sounds, each with 2 real-time parameters
  • Enhance your drum sounds with 16 effects such as bit crush, stutter, and delay
  • Create entire songs on the 16-step sequencer with 16 patterns and pattern chaining
  • Integrated folding stand and onboard Knowles speaker offer convenient standalone use

Tiny but powerful By:
Surprisingly powerful kit. Batteries (not included) lasts extremely long. This PO has a nice variety of sound effects and filters. You can use earphones for silent listening or connect it to aux speakers for volume and bass.The tear-away at the top of the PO-20 is unfortunately not a clean break and requires sanding if you want a smooth edge - not the most visually pleasing.
So much fan By:
Of course this is a toy, of course it is not extremely functional or useful, but this is so so so delightful and fun thing to play with. I know I will buy all of PO now:)
Five Stars By:
I bring this everywhere I go. Way more convenient then a guitar or ukulele to exercise creativity while traveling
Awesome!! By:
So great I love it!!
Five Stars By:
so much fun
Great for making beats. Fits in your paocket By:
Awesome pocket size drum machine
which is good because it makes it short By:
Smaller than I expected. Seems well built. Buttons are responsive. Don't forget that the kickstand is just a wire. The instructions are very simple, which is good because it makes it short, but the "advanced" stuff had to be figured out manually/looked up online.
you will not be disappointed. By:
The most capable drum machine you will find under $100. PO's are marvels of design, especially at this price point. Buy one, you will not be disappointed.
This thing is fun as hell By:
This thing is fun as hell. I was never able to get rhtms going when I tried making music years ago on DAWs and a hardware sampler, but this makes it so easy! Fun to jam with on your commute too.

This was a gift and my Grandson loves it.

  • With the vast majority of the past few decades' drum machine designs largely being emulations of the great machines that have gone before, Arturia’s introduction of a fully analog hardware drum machine with organic, integral sound creation is a major event
  • The DrumBrute is firmly rooted in the classic drum machines, but it builds upon these traditions in terms of superior audio specifications and lower noise floor than the rhythm composers that paved the way
  • It also features far greater versatility in sound generation and programming options than the classic machines ever had
  • The DrumBrute offers seventeen true analog sounds, unique performance effects, a modern step sequencer, tremendous ease of use and state-of-the-art connectivity

Another Arturia hit! By:
Ils sont de France, bien sûr c'est un produit formidable!Just to point out, if you're used to Spark, the sequencer acts just the same. Much easier than 808/909 clones. Additional feature--instrument triggers have their own pads. Makes it easier because you get to hear the drum when it's selected.It isn't a TR-XXX clone. While it is similar, you'll be disappointed if you have to have "real authentic" Roland sounds.It is far easier to play with the drum sounds over, say, Sparkle (which I have and like very much). Individual knobs are tons easier to tweak. I also like the standalone ability, sometimes I just want to make drum noises without needing the laptop.A great buy, no complaints and I can't think of any additional features I really need.
Sick Beats By:
This sounds amazing. It is easy to use and fun to play with.

This thing is sick!!
