collapse expand iconDescription

Arturia's PolyBrute 12 represents a seismic shift in analog polysynth expressivity. This 12-voice powerhouse transcends traditional synth architecture with its groundbreaking Full Touch MPE technology keyboard that tracks the position, pressure and motion of each key. Combined with the iconic Morphée pad, wooden ribbon strip and advanced modulation options, the PolyBrute 12 opens a new multidimensional realm for sculpting sound.

Arturia PolyBrute 12 Analog Synthesizer Full Touch MPE Keybed

Full Touch MPE: A Keyboard Tailored for Expression

At the heart of the PolyBrute 12 lies its revolutionary Full Touch MPE polyphonic keyboard. This advanced keybed detects the nuances of your playing across the entire key movement range, allowing for seamless polyphonic aftertouch expression. Whether through subtle inflections or powerful dynamics, you'll forge an intimate connection with your sound. Three distinct aftertouch modes let you shape momentum-sensitive envelopes and modulate each note independently for truly limitless sonic possibilities.

Arturia PolyBrute 12 Analog Synthesizer Oscillators

Infinite Timbral Exploration With Analog Oscillators

Dive into a vast spectrum of sonic color with the PolyBrute 12's potent analog oscillator section. Dual analog oscillators offer classic waveforms like sawtooth, triangle, square and pulse width, plus a sub-oscillator for thunderous bass textures. Metalizer and FM circuitry add complex, evolving harmonic structures. When paired with the multimode filters and comprehensive modulation matrix, you can coax an infinite palette of rich, dynamic tones from this synthesizer.
