I’ve had the MiniBrute since August 2012, but this is the first time I’ve plugged anything (other than itself) into the audio input. Setting the Gate Source to “Audio” to trigger the envelope every time I play a note is a little frustrating. It either mis-triggers, or doesn’t trigger every time I want it to. And keep in mind, it’s not a volume-dependent thing that opens the filter more when I play a louder note; it’s just a full-on or full-off thing. It seems like setting long decay & release times is the most forgiving way to do this.
On the other hand, setting the Gate Source to “Hold” and just enjoying the filter modulation was more consistently enjoyable. I’m open to suggestions and ideas if you’ve tried any of this yourself.
Have you tried using the MiniBrute as an effect processor?
