Analog sound, digital brain
MatrixBrute Noir features the best aspects of both worlds: pure analog sound creation and shaping with comprehensive digital mapping and preset storage behind the scenes. Feel right at home sitting at MatrixBrute's control panel with access to Arturia's trademark sawtooth, pulse and triangle waves as well as the unique Brute waveshapers. MatrixBrute Noir also features two superb filters: Arturia's acidic Steiner-Parker and a creamy ladder filter based on Bob Moog's legendary design.
The power of the matrix
The possibilities expand almost infinitely when you start integrating the modulation matrix. With hundreds of virtual patch points, you'll discover sounds you never thought possible. The matrix has many different functions, lets you save and recall presets and acts as an advanced step-sequencer. Analog CV/gate outputs on the back panel control all your analog modular gear.
So many knobs to tweak, so many sounds to shape. With such a limitless array of possibilities, you'll quickly realize the downside of only having one pair of hands. Fortunately, MatrixBrute Noir features 4 macro encoders that let you stack several parameters into one knob, putting you in full control of your performance.
The key to performance
49 full-size keys feature velocity and aftertouch for an expressive performance. The true analog effects section adds that sparkle to your sound, keeping it all in the analog domain for extra grit. Widen up the pads with the stereo chorus, use mono and stereo delays to add space and repetition, add a classic vintage-style flanger and a touch of reverb for the finishing touches.
With instant preset recall, true invention in a live setting awaits at your fingertips. Choose from an expanded sonic palette of presets, 256 of which can be stored on MatrixBrute at any time, and let the ride begin. Combined with an impressive arpeggiator and sequencer, you can evolve your melodies and textures with power and deep originality.
