Imagine using 6 analog voices to craft a sound that's powerful, raw, and entirely yours. Imagine a sound existing in two states simultaneously in a single preset, with seamless morphing between them. Imagine multi-axis performance controls, offering next-generation musical expression. Imagine instant and limitless modulation at your fingertips. Imagine a polysynth made by musicians, for musicians.

Evolution of the Brute sound

Raw, powerful, organic. The analog Brute voice is an unmistakable sonic force to be reckoned with - how about six at once?

PolyBrute's six-voice power starts with two Brute waveshaping oscillators. With sprawling timbral versatility from delicate, airy pads to snarling stacked bass, these are six voices you can count on to excel in every application.

The tactile and reactive nature of analog synthesis is right at the heart of PolyBrute's architecture. Tame or animate the oscillators with an expanded array of multiple filters, envelopes, and LFOs for absolute control over the analog domain. Once you've harnessed its sound sources, PolyBrute is your vessel for an inspiring voyage into sound.

Morphing
a bold new chapter in the story of synthesis

PolyBrute’s morphing abilities let you perform, compose, and explore sound without boundaries.

Imagine being able to sweep all the parameter settings between two different patches all at once. PolyBrute goes even further with its groundbreaking ability to morph between two completely different states within any patch gradually.

Launch into an infinite continuum of inspiring new sounds in between.

For morphing to work, hands-on control is essential - PolyBrutes takes it to another level. The all-new Morphée three-dimensional performance touchpad ensures that intricate morphing expression is always right at your fingertips. Manipulate any facet of PolyBrute’s sound, from delicate morphing to extreme dynamic shifts, across the X, Y, and Z-axis instantly.

It doesn't end there; PolyBrute is armed to the teeth with articulate controllers to give your performances and compositions the elusive human touch.

This unparalleled sonic flexibility and expressivity are what earns PolyBrute its place in synthesizer history - a trailblazer of creativity.

The Matrix
The digital brain for PolyBrute’s analog heart

The Matrix is where PolyBrute’s analog reactivity and digital precision collide - an advanced architecture, unlike any synth before it.

A Hands-On Analog Experience

PolyBrute puts all that analog power right upfront with dedicated knobs and switches, offering unmatched control and immediacy.

Almost everything you touch also generates MIDI so that you can capture your every move as part of your DAW productions. Need some instant attitude? Crank up the enhanced Steiner filter’s Brute Factor. Want to change the cutoff on both filters at once? Grab the Master Cutoff knob. Time to move the floor beneath your feet? Dial-in VCO 2’s sub-oscillator. It’s all right there in front of you.

PolyBrute Connect

Library management, parameter editing, and instant integration with your DAW.

Hook PolyBrute up to your computer and enjoy seamless bi-directional editing and organization. PolyBrute Connect bridges the gap between hardware and software like never before, letting you incorporate its expansive sound into your virtual studio workflow. Construct patches, go deeper with morphing tweaks, and control PolyBrute’s sound in real-time from your Mac or PC - simple.

Distinction in design

An instrument of this magnitude is deserving of only the closest attention to detail - PolyBrute is a synthesizer year in the making.

It's undergone rigorous testing to ensure a build quality of the finest caliber. Controls, buttons, and expressive components that are a delight to use, time after time. Its pristine metal chassis is embellished with luxurious dark walnut appointments for a timeless aesthetic, with a sleek, modern flair that sets it apart from the crowd.

PolyBrute is something unmistakably new while remaining firmly rooted in synth design heritage.

Carrier Logistic Routes 

Carriers have their own logistic routes, some of which may seem somewhat counterintuitive from an outside perspective. However, these logistics are in place for a reason and we trust our carriers to do their job and deliver orders within the allotted delivery time. Please contact us only if your tracking information indicates delivery to an incorrect address.

Shipping to an Alternate Address

While we are able to ship to alternate addresses, we prefer to ship to the billing address or the address listed on your PayPal account. Shipping to an alternate address may delay an order due to additional security steps taken on our end to prevent fraudulent transactions.

A confirmation signature is required on all orders valued at $100 and above. Without this signature, we are unable to file a claim in the event of a lost or stolen package. However, if an order absolutely must have the signature confirmation waived then we do have a waiver that must be filled out and emailed back to us before shipment. If the waiver is not filled out before the carrier picks up the package, then we are unable to request the removal of a confirmation signature.

Delivery Times

Orders shipping within the continental United States are typically delivered within one to five business days, though this time may vary based on the chosen shipping method and destination. Unfortunately, there are delays caused by the carrier, weather conditions, or customs that we are unable to control—even with CV!

If this occurs we'll immediately contact you to try and arrange another delivery.
