NAMM 2018: Arturia Delve Deeper Into Modular With The RackBrute

Arturia continues their foray into the world of modular with the reveal of the RackBrute, a Eurorack modular storage, power and transport system…



Arturia has rounded out their week of announcements with the imminent arrival of RackBrute, the company’s very own powered Eurorack case. Each unit has a dedicated power module to supply your gear with +12V / -12V /+5V power and the handle can act as a multi-position stand, allowing you to position your Eurorack modules however you please.

If you’re taking your gear on the road it can be packed down into “transport mode”, with a handle and spacers to prevent collision between the case and attached hardware. An optional travel bag is also available.

Whether you invest in the smaller 3U, 88HP version or the larger 6U, 176HP version, Arturia tells us that RackBrute will house your gear in the most economic and efficient way possible.

Perhaps the most exciting news is how it ties in with the MiniBrute 2 and MiniBrute 2S. Thanks to the new Arturia Link, the gap between traditional synthesisers modular is bridged. When using RackBrute with MiniBrute 2/2S “everything is laid out before you, breaking down all barriers for your experimentation and inspiration.”

Pricing and Availability:
RackBrute is due out March 2018 alongside the MiniBrute 2 and MiniBrute 2S. The 3U model retails at €259 and the 6U at €359.
