We felt something like this, something huge was going to drop from Arturia and we weren’t wrong. The PolyBrute is Arturia’s new flagship polysynth and it’s a beauty.
All we have is the accidental release of the cover of the October edition of Sound On Sound magazine. It says they have the exclusive review of the new polysynth and it does indeed look impressive on the front cover.
There’s no other information to go on but it looks like 3 oscillators per voice and the matrix from the MatrixBrute has been slimmed down to 8×12. To the left of the keyboard is an intriguing wooden block which looks a lot like the Touché expressive controller. Otherwise the layout is very similar to the MatrixBrute but has favoured width over depth.
The new edition of Sound On Sound arrives on Thursday when I’m sure we’ll be all over this fascinating new polysynth. Any guesses on the price?
