PolyBrute is more than a synthesizer - it's a 6-voice analog powerhouse, with unprecedented expressivity and sound morphing capabilities, built to let you perform fearlessly, compose with fluidity, and explore sound in perpetual motion.
PolyBrute goes against the grain to provide something entirely new - and not just a new sound, new feel, new design. This is a new approach to synthesis.
The raw energy of Brute oscillators, stacked six voices high, shaped by the versatility of dual enhanced classic filters. But with PolyBrute, a patch isn't just a single sound; it's an entire spectrum of sonic color that can be traversed at the touch of a single control. Attain the unattainable.
With such sonic depth comes the need for tactility. Playing PolyBrute is like suddenly being able to play several instruments at once; a multi-faceted tool of musical expression. From the classic ribbon strip to the state-of-the-art Morphée controller, each component is designed to respond to your every musical nuance.
Sounds complicated? Not a chance. PolyBrute's intuitive function-per-knob interface and the tactile elegance of the Matrix puts next-generation sound comfortably within reach.
a bold new chapter in the story of synthesis
PolyBrute’s morphing abilities let you perform, compose, and explore sound without boundaries. Imagine being able to sweep all the parameter settings between two different patches all at once. PolyBrute goes even further with its groundbreaking ability to gradually morph between two completely different states within any patch.
Seamless transitioning of multiple parameters from one state to another, and everything in between. Morphing, combined with the Morphée and PolyBrute's uniquely eloquent inventory, paves the way for endless patch evolution and expressivity.
Every 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 relevant parameters - like turning all the knobs at once. Map PolyBrute’s envelopes, LFOs, aftertouch and sequencer to change the morph position between the two states in real-time.
Two filters are better than one
VCF 1 - Steiner
A 2-pole 12db/octave Steiner filter design with continuous sweepable slope types, as seen across the Brute range. The addition of the proprietary Brute Factor feedback control lets you add anything from subtle warmth to a raunchy growl.
VCF 2 - Ladder
Inspired by Dr. Bob Moog’s legendary 4-pole 24db/octave ladder design. A low-pass classic, with added gain compensation and asymmetrical distortion to add upfront grit to your polyphonic patches.
Modern modulation sources
Modulation has always been essential in animating synth sounds.
PolyBrute weaves a web of envelopes and LFOs that’s intricate and unpredictable in equal measure - the sound of motion itself.
Enter the Matrix
The flexibility of modular patching combined with digital precision and analog richness makes for a transcendent polysynth experience. The Matrix takes PolyBrute’s expansive feature set and distills it into an intuitive, visually-responsive interface that makes it a dream to play.
Animate and automate your sound
When you want to set your sound in motion, there’s no faster way than engaging PolyBrute’s Sequencer/Arpeggiator section, instantly accessible via the Transport section, Matrix, and keybed.
As if there aren’t enough ways to animate your PolyBrute patches, the Motion Recorder instantly captures your movement of almost any knob or controller - and then automatically plays back that motion back with every triggered note.
Integrated digital effects
PolyBrute incorporates built-in professional-grade digital effects into every patch, with parameters that can be modulated to no end - rounding off an all-encompassing palette worthy of any stage, studio, or soundtrack.
Coherent integration between PolyBrute and your virtual studio projects, combining the tactility of analog hardware with the convenience of virtual instrument flexibility.
Designing a flagship
Not only is its layout logical and intuitive, but its striking design combines the best of vintage synth heritage and cutting-edge modernity. Timeless angles, smooth surfaces, and sleek appointments that’ll stand out on any stage. A calculated & rugged metal frame, lavishly lined with dark walnut for an aesthetic worthy of luxury interior design.
