Firmware update allows users to dig deeper.


21 September 2023

Arturia’s PolyBrute is a polysynth that fuses expressivity with the raw energy of analogue — morphing between multiple sonic states within presets, and putting unprecedented sound sculpting and patching power at your fingertips. Now, explore new heights of polyphonic sound with an array of embellishments, experimental features, and creative upgrades for PolyBrute, available for free with the release of Firmware 3.0.


Introducing Distortion
Go even further with coloration and sound-sculpting with PolyBrute’s new Distortion category, featuring 7 types of crunch to add to its vibrant list of modulation, delay, and reverb effects. The 7 modes are: Subtle Tape, Classic Distortion, Soft Clip, Worn Out Tape, Germanium, BitCrusher, and DownSample.

Flexible Effects Routing
Dig deeper into PolyBrute’s signal chain and rewire its effects to suit your sound design flow; both the Insert and Send modes can now be adjusted in terms of order.

Enhanced Tuning
A wider range of tuning options lets you adjust PolyBrute’s musical role in your projects, from tuning individual oscillators more deeply to transposing the keyboard to suit a particular track or style.

New Stereo Layer Mode

Allocate one voice to the left channel and one to the right to add increased natural width to PolyBrute’s sounds.

Over 350 New Presets
PolyBrute’s library has been totally reworked with new and enhanced presets that emphasise its expressivity, analogue power, and new features like Distortion and Stereo Layer mode.

PolyBrute Connect

Communication between PolyBrute and its software counterpart is now quicker, smoother, and more intuitive, also accommodating other new features from firmware 3.0.

Workflow & Expression Improvements
Numerous fixes and much-requested additions to PolyBrute’s feature set, from reloading your last saved preset on startup to more features and parameters displayed on-screen in real-time.
