Arturia PolyBrute Analogsynthesizer
by Adrian Cosmin on Sep 28, 2020
Imagine using 6 analog voices to craft a sound that's powerful, raw, and entirely yours. Imagine a sound existing in two states simultaneously in a single preset, with seamless morphing between them. Imagine multi-axis performance controls offering next-generation musical expression. Imagine instant and limitless modulation at your fingertips. Imagine a polysynth made by musicians, for musicians.
The PolyBrute has a couple of uniques features, first up is the Morphee - which get you X/Y/Z modulation controller which can be used to control the morph between the A and B sides of a patch - they are almost completely independent patches apart from they will share the same FX and same 32 Mod Matrix (just like MatrixBrute). There's also a Ribbon controller, 5 octave aftertouch (channel only) equipped keybed, and a thing called the Motion Recorder for recording a single parameter tweak into a one shot or looping playback.
Arturia have replaced the analogue effects in the MatrixBrute with Modulation FX, Reverb and Delay. Additionally, the I/O section no longer includes CV ins and outs, which is surprising but it accentuate the fact that this synth is likely intended to be its own starting and ending point and this in my opinion, could light up your imagination pretty fast.
The PolyBrute is available for pre-order at a price of €2499, and the first units are scheduled to ship at the end of November.
