The iOS companion app for your Arturia Brute synthesizer. MIDIBrute enables you to configure all of your Brutes software only features from your iOS device.
MIDIBrute is especially useful when using an iOS Device together with your music equipment without a Mac or PC on hand to quickly change your Arturia Brute synthesisers settings.
MIDIBrute runs on your iPhone as well as on your iPad. So no need to buy twice.
MIDI Clock Support
MIDIBrute can send a MIDI clock signal to your synthesizer. In case you're unable to sync with something else you can at least configure BPM.
Simple And Intuitive
We worked hard to make MIDIBrute easy to use and nice to look at.
!!! MIDIBrute requires an Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter !!!
Currently MIDIBrute supports Arturias MiniBrute and MicroBrute. We're working on support for MiniBrute SE and MicroBrute SE.
- Adds a SysEx command to switch between MiniBrute Vanilla and MiniBrute SE features
- Fixes a crash during the pairing process when connecting the Brute to the iOS device
- Minor Fixes

Ratings and Reviews
Love it, works great
You’ll need to update the MicroBrute’s firmware to 1.0.4.* for step length (at least) to work, but that’s Arturia’s fault. I can’t find a way to save/restore sequences with the app, not that the MB’s sequencer is all that great anyway.
Let me first say this: I own the MicroBrute SE White, and this app works with it, though the description says otherwise.
The developer told me that they say the SE's aren't supported, because they didn't test it with a SE, therefore doesn't want to falsely advertise the app.
I'm very happy with this app. It works like a charm, and it cuts having to use a computer out of the equation. I can see this being a great tool for a live setup. In addition, I switched the sequencer to Hold via the app, unplugged all usb connection, and powered off the Brute. Then I turned the Brute back on to see if the sequencer setting was saved, and to my surprise, it was. Well worth the money spent.
Insta-crash - appears abandoned
UPDATE (9/12/16) - Developer updated to v. 1.1 shortly after my review - works great now! My arppegiator wasn't even working on my Brute - now I have a mobile solution to set it up like I want it. Upgraded to 5 stars. Thanks for the update!!!
I bought this app as soon as I got my MicroBrute. There were reviews suggesting it worked at one time. However, it crashed instantly when I tried to use it, and it looks like I am not the only one. I also note that it was never updated past version 1.0. Developers should really remove these apps from the App Store if they have no interest in keeping them working.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
