No, this is not a Tanzbär / Tanzbär Lite / Tanzmaus Lite “killer” even though it might be an interesting alternative for some people who were previously looking at one of those MFB drum boxes.
The big difference is that with the brute, the pots are wired directly to the analogue circuitry which means there’s no part storage, parameter locking, or MIDI CC parameter control possible. All of this is possible with the MFB boxes.
Some of the sounds on the MFB boxes are stereo (clap) or positioned in the stereo field (toms), the brute is all mono.
The MFB boxes offer some LFO and glide features that are not available on the brute.
The MFB boxes are much more compact which might be important for some.
The Tanzmaus has two “909-style” 12-bit sample voices while the brute is all-analogue.
