By combining the analog sonic power of their Brute series analog synthesizers with an innovative routing and sequencing matrix, Arturia's MatrixBrute provides you with the full flexibility of a modular synth, with the convenience of modern digital control. This isn't to say that the MatrixBrute won't play well with your modern modular gear - its 12-in/12-out CV section covers all the analog I/O you could ask for - but you don't need to touch a single patch cable to route signal around this singular synth. While traditional elements such as a 4-mode Steiner-Parker filter and a 3-mode ladder filter are exciting all by themselves, the 64-step sequencer and ability to instantly recall 256 presets have really turned heads here at Music Experience. We're also impressed by the feel of the full-sized, 49-note keyboard, which makes the Arturia MatrixBrute one of the most playable synthesizers around.

What Arturia Says...

MatrixBrute is arguably the most powerful analog monophonic synthesizer ever ! As flexible as a modular system but offering presets, MatrixBrute is a dream machine for everyone interested in creating a sound palette of their own. When was the last time you felt your heart beating faster? When was the last time you heard sounds you had never heard before? When was the last time you met an instrument that truly inspired pleasure and creativity? MatrixBrute is an outstanding analog synthesizer. Offering three Brute oscillators, a Steiner-Parker filter and a ladder filter, five analog effects, and the incredible modulation matrix. It is a massive sonic beast.

Power beyond the matrix

The heart of the MatrixBrute is its unique modulation matrix that allows you to create your own routings. You can invent a sound palette of your own that will be sure to be heard in any mix! The matrix can also be used to recall your presets. So go on stage, and select any of the 256 presets instantly! No menus or awkward selection screens, everything is at your fingertips. As if it was not enough, the matrix is also made to program and play sequences. This is no ordinary step-sequencer. With its ability to also be used as a modulation source, sounds evolve in melody and texture, just the way you want.

Sound beyond the power

Offering a audiosignal path that is is 100% analog, MatrixBrute also features true analog effects. The MatrixBrute gives you the sonic quality and power of a vast modular synthesizer but with the flexibility of presets along with a great arpeggiator and an advanced sequencer. MatrixBrute is a truly empowering instrument!! It offers tons of connections so you can work in any set-up. It brings a quality keybed and a solid chassis. No endless menus or screens to navigate or multi-function buttons to remember. Forget about connectivity issues. This is you in control. This is you inventing sounds. This is analog avant- garde.

    Hands on heaven

    Forget about tiny LCD screens, being lost in menus and sub-menus, and trying to remember double functions and complex procedures. MatrixBrute brings back the fun and the immediate hands-on experience of synthesis. When you want things to shake, grab the Sub Osc slider and bring it on. When you want it to sizzle, grab the filter knob and open it up. And when it’s time to unleash the beast, grab the Brute Factor™ knob and turn it loose! It’s that easy.
