Arturia’s Polybrute: with Extra Morphing

Arturia Polybrute Matrix

Arturia has presented its new synthesizer: the Polybrute. A reduced Matrixbrute, with new options, so you don’t stay in the Virtual Analog always.

The French brand continues to make people talk, striving with each new release to clearly differentiate itself from other synthesizer manufacturers. If a few days ago we presented you the small Microfreak Vocoder, today it’s time for Arturia to bring something else to the market brute. This new synthesizer is a animalized 6-voice analogue and double filter, with special emphasis on morphing between patches.

Raw, powerful and organic. This is how Arturia describes it on his website. And, as you can hear in the audio demos, they are not off track. But, as we told you, what really opens up a world of sound possibilities is the function Morphwhich means you have a practically infinite palette of sounds.

Seamless transition of multiple parameters from one state to another and everything in between. Morphing paves the way for endless evolution and expressiveness of patches.

Each patch stores an A and B state, complete with numerous parameter settings. When you gradually sweep between those two states, you’re simultaneously altering all the relevant parameters, like turning all the knobs at once. Map PolyBrute envelopes, LFO, aftertouch, and sequencer to change the morph position between the two states in real time.
