Yes, this is finally happening! Remember the Arturia MatrixBrute, announced at NAMM in January 2016 and seen only at trade fairs & special events around the world (with some prototype units)? Well, this analog beast is now shipping.
Offering three Brute oscillators, a Steiner-Parker filter and a ladder filter, five analog effects, and an inspiring modulation matrix, MatrixBrute is definitely a candidate for the hi-end mono synth of the year.
The Arturia team have worked with sound designers such as Richard Divine and Katsunori Ujiie to include presets to show the full capabilities of the synthesizer, from classic ripping leads to never head before soundscapes, possible because of the revolutionary matrix section.
The 100% analog MatrixBrute also features a 49-note full size keyboard with velocity sensitivity and aftertouch for a fully expressive experience. Add to this the sequencer, arpeggiator, Steiner Parker filter, and a host of connectivity options… (are you still there salivating?)
Arturia have received their first units which will be shipping to select retailers, with additional stock expected very early 2017.
The Matrixbrute is available for $1999/1999€. For more detailed information, please visit the MatrixBrute Analog Synthesizer product webpage.
