Awesome drums made easy
Sharing the same prize-fighting sequencing architecture found in the original DrumBrute, you’ll love the simple, fun, and intuitive sequencer in DrumBrute Impact.

Use the touch strip to create some real-time glitchy, beat-repeat breakdowns, spice up a single instrument or your whole pattern with a dedicated ‘Random’ knob, and add some syncopation and groove with the ‘Swing’ feature.
Bass Jam (Sebastien Rochard)
Jam showing the rawer side of the machine. All sounds coming from the DrumBrute Impact, using the built-in distortion, and with additionnal touch of processing from Ableton's Color Limiter.
Groove Jam (Gustavo Bravetti)
This very lively jam was recorded straight from the machine, performed in one take. It is clearly making the most of all the instruments' ranges and performance features. All sounds coming from DrumBrute Impact and its built in distortion circuit, n o external processing applied.
Lighthouse (Lily Jordy)
Ambient and relaxing track made using DrumBrute impact for drums, as well as Analog Lab for synth sounds. Additional processing was made using Ableton's native ping pong delay effect on the Snare 2.
Micro Jam (Sebastien Rochard)
This à la micro-house jam/track shows well the variety of sounds that can be achieved by using accent tracks and automating the color of the instruments. All sounds coming from the DrumBrute Impact, using the built-in distortion, and with additionnal touch of processing from Ableton's Color Limiter.
Overtimed (Victor Morello)
Groovy and ambient electro composition put together very quickly thanks to the handy sequencer. 3 Instances of DX7V were used for the synth parts. Processing include DrumBrute Impact's built-in distortion at a discrete setting, and Ableton's Glue Compressor for mild compression.
Slow Rise (Lily Jordy)
In this ethereal track, Snare 2 is being used as a way to simulate a crash, thanks to its longer decay settings. Additional processing was made using Ableton's native ping pong delay effect on the Snare 2. All synth sounds come from Analog Lab.
