A resurrected synthesizer staple, modernised and positioned conveniently above PolyBrute Noir’s keybed. Assign it to your chosen modulation destination and glide effortlessly across your sonic spectrum. Coupled with a premium velocity/pressure-sensitive keybed, pitch wheel and assignable mod wheel, and foot pedal controller inputs, PolyBrute Noir is a synthesizer that you won’t want to take your hands off.
PolyBrute Noir’s voice is a collision between signature Brute oscillators and dual analog filters for sounds that quickly move between the light and the dark, the familiar and the otherworldly. Start your voice right with two powerful Brute analog VCOs that generate sawtooth, triangle, and square waves simultaneously, with jagged Metalizer wavefolding, cavernous sub-oscillator, and cross-mod & sync controls right at your fingertips. Add colour and shape to your timbres with two classic filter designs, configurable in series, parallel, or continuously variable. The first, a Steiner 12db/octave filter with continuous slope type, enhanced with signature Brute Factor feedback; the second, the legendary 24db/octave Ladder filter for that essential low-pass smoothness, supercharged with biting distortion.
