Thrilling analog synth.
MatrixBrute is perhaps 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. 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
At 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 heard in any mix. The matrix can also be used to recall your own presets so you can select any of the 256 presets instantly without wandering through menus or awkward selection screens. With the MatrixBrute, everything is at your fingertips.
As if it weren’t 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 an audio signal 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 offers a multitude of connections so you can work in any set-up. It brings a quality keybed and a solid chassis.
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.
I grabbed a MatrixBrute toward the beginning of the year, and it's quickly worked its way to being my staple monosynth. It's a three oscillator, two filter analog monster, and nothing else I own comes close. The MatrixBrute is capable of everything, from screaming leads to complex sequences to soft ambiences. The Steiner Parker ladder filter likewise gives it a unique, smooth and warm flavor that no other synth in my getup has. As the name implies, this synth is solidly aimed at programmers and sound designers, but the keyboard is still one of the best I've ever played.
