Arturia PolyBrute 12 Promises To Be ‘The Most Expressive Synth Ever’

At Superbooth 2024, being held May 16-18 in Berlin, Arturia has introduced the PolyBrute 12, which they are calling “the most expressive synthesizer ever.”

The Arturia Polybrute 12 takes their Brute line to new level, pairing their expressive FullTouch keyboard with a powerful 12-voice architecture, and adding a ribbon controller, Morphée pad, bi-timbral morphing presets and more.

Key Features:

  • FullTouch MPE keyboard – PolyBrute 12’s FullTouch keyboard enables polyphonic aftertouch expression across the entire key movement range. Choose between regular synth action aftertouch modes and FullTouch modes.
  • “Limitless” sound design – The 12-voice architecture of PolyBrute 12 combined with its analog oscillators, filters, advanced matrix and integrated FX allow for “an infinite spectrum of sonic color”.
  • Morphing & multi-axis control – Morph seamlessly between two states in a single preset and discover PolyBrute’s innovative Morphée controller which allows you to transition between 3 destination parameters.
  • Seamless DAW integration – PolyBrute Connect provides a coherent bridge between PolyBrute and your virtual studio projects. Manage your patches and easily import new presets and sound banks. Control PolyBrute in real-time with every parameter change mirrored between synth and software.
