Evolution of the 'Brute
Use PolyBrute's 6 voices polyphonically, in splits and layers or stack them in unison mode. Each pure analog voice is a feature-packed sonic power tool featuring two highly versatile Brute waveshaping VCOs, a full-spectrum noise generator, an enhanced Steiner multimode filter, a custom lowpass ladder filter, 3 LFOs, 3 Envelope Generators and more. They all meet up in the matrix to bring you patching flexibility normally reserved for modular systems.

Morph or modulate?
Imagine being able to smoothly sweep all parameters at once. PolyBrute goes even further, with each preset existing in two states simultaneously and a dedicated Morph knob that lets you seamlessly morph between them. Great-feeling pitch and assignable multifunction wheels provide familiar expressivity and there's even an assignable touch-sensitive strip immediately above the keyboard. The heart of PolyBrute's expressive performability is the Morphée three-dimensional touchpad: this revolutionary feature offers 3-axis control over patch morphing, sequence/arpeggiator randomization or up to 32 assigned matrix modulations per axis. PolyBrute is further equipped with 3 LFOs and 3 envelope generators.

Enter the matrix
The modulation matrix is the digital brain to PolyBrute's analog heart, a flexible, hands-on interface with multiple functions that can be tailored to your performing, recording or composing needs. In Mods mode, the matrix button grid is a digital patchbay, letting you use 64 available connections to route any of your modulation sources and controllers to as many as 32 modulation destinations. In Sequencer mode, the matrix becomes a visual editing interface, presenting everything you need to create polyphonic sequences, arpeggios and hybrids. In addition to notes, you can also record and replay your synth parameter changes, transforming the sequencer into yet another modulation source.

Hands-on heaven
PolyBrute puts all that analog power right up front with dedicated knobs and switches, making menu diving and memorization a thing of the past. Almost everything you touch also generates MIDI, so you can capture every move to your DAW or other sequence recorder. Need some instant attitude? Crank up the enhanced Steiner filter's Brute Factor. Want to change the cutoff on both filters at once? Grab the Master Cutoff knob. Time to shake the foundation? Dial in VCO 2's sub-oscillator. It's all right there in front of you.

Step back, leap forward
PolyBrute comes armed with powerful sequencing and arpeggiation abilities. Use the matrix in Sequencer mode to fire up a 64-step sequence, step away from the keys and focus on real-time modulation and dynamic tweaking. Add velocity, accents, slides and randomization for sequences that evolve and respond to every musical nuance. Instantly generate animated arpeggios with multiple musical directions, optionally repeated in higher octaves. Go further with the matrix's Arpeggiator mode, with a hybrid 16-step framework that lets you generate complex arpeggiated textures.

Polyphony in stereo
PolyBrute features left and right unbalanced 1/4" jacks for your master stereo audio output with functions specifically designed to make the most of the stereo field. Stereo displacement of voices can be controlled in the output section. This subtly pans each of the 6 voices left and right to varying degrees, allowing you to swing from a focused, centralized sound to a larger-than-life immersive width. In addition, the dual filter design can be routed in parallel, resulting in a discrete stereo sound. In this mode, the left and right channels can have different evolving sounds that be manipulated with the morphing features. Finally, a built-in array of high-quality digital effects adds the finishing touch to your patches in full stereo fashion. Arturia included favorite algorithms from their critically acclaimed software FX Collection along with some new reverbs and delays that take advantage of PolyBrute's stereo architecture. Better still, you can modulate certain effects' parameters with the mod matrix.
