PolyBrute - Full Review - Sonic LAB


"There were rumours, but nothing concrete until - wham! There’s the PolyBrute. The 6 voice analog poly synth based on the MatrixBrute architecture.

Poly synths are like cars, you expect a steering wheel, indicators and other regular features that make it recognizable as such. And Arturia went for that but also added some interesting features we’ve not seen on a poly before. Including what I would say is the PolyBrute’s super power: true, modulatable, patch morphing. This can be controlled with the other unusual feature - the Morphee - it's an X/Y pad with a Z axis as well. Looks a bit like the Touche, but it's quite different.

We also get the 8x12 Mod matrix with 4 pages of routings, each dialed in via the main data knob - like the Matrix. And three high quality digital FX and a ribbon controller. 5 octave Fatar keybed with channel aftertouch wraps things up. Build quality is good. The panel doesn't flip like the Matrix, but I’m not missing that tbh, it feels solid and well constructed."
