I like the Minibrute very much for its live capabilities. The only thing to wish I could think of was an additional macro oscillator
So I built a custom Braids board to fit into the tight space of the Minibrute. The display is a smaller-sized extra board to sit behind the panel. Based on the schematics published by Yusynth I figured out the circuit points to hook up Braids. Now it’s possible to tune Braids to the brute’s pitch an also mod pitch by the LFO and the vibrato. The timbre CV of Braids is modulated by the brute’s metallizer circuit by ENV and LFO. The audio signal can be faded in by the Ext. fader like any other oscillator wave form.
Finally, I added a nice label the fits nicely to the Minibrute’s layout.
That is really fun and works perfectly!
I made a scheme of the interconnections and a documentation of the circuit hook up:
Here I documented the build process:
