    Arturia MatrixBrute - "MatrxBrute is a Beauty indeed."

    07/23/17

    I dont have huge experience with Synths, only got into them 3 years ago with Arturia' V Collection. Went Hardware with the MicroBrute,Gaia, Nord Wave, and then the wonderful Volcas. But I could not hold back from this..it is really something special.…

    Arturia MatrixBrute - "A monstrous sound that goes to the bottom of things"

    02/16/17

    Hi, I've been using the matrixbrute in my studio for the past 3 weeks. It's an exceptional gearn just as I expected. Look at it from far and this beast is impressive: knobs everywhere, many buttons that light up... Very pretty! From closer the fin…

    Arturia brute - "Good, but it can't play B flat!"

    04/02/14

    I had seen the demos online and after talking over the phone with jean michel jarre he convinced me of buying it. It isn't 256-voice polyphonic but you can use two fingers at the same time, which produces the same sound as my cousin's Ford Escort wh…

    Arturia brute - .Gwe's review

    04/01/14

    It's a 100% analog synth with 5 keys, two main controls, three pedal ports, USB MIDI in/out/thru, CV/Gate in and out, separate audio outputs, and paraphony across the entire keyboard. It's a delight! It's hard to imagine so many functions in such a s…

    Arturia brute - "More than enough for making Dubstep!"

    04/01/14

    5 key range! NOT ONLY a pitch wheel BUT ALSO a mod wheel. 100% Analog LOOKS LIKE A TRANSFORMER'S FOOT!!!!! UTILIZATION Simple to control and easy to assign via midi to any DAW you may have found free on the Internet! SOUNDS Sounds bett…

    Arturia brute - " Awesome"

    04/01/14

    5-key preset keyboard UTILIZATION Pleasant handling 400-page manual SOUNDS The best in its category OVERALL OPINION I strongly recommend it. I've had the opportunity to play all of David Guetta's repertory with it, so I can vouch for it!…

    Arturia brute - "Chonchon for president!"

    04/01/14

    Because Chonchon must be president. UTILIZATION Even if he sold me this keyboard for twice what he paid for it. SOUNDS It's silky and rough-textured at the same time. OVERALL OPINION I've fallen in love, Chonchon for president!…

    Arturia brute - "A real tour de force"

    04/01/14

    A revolutionary concept (the famous "quarter octave" format by Jimmy Jones, keyboard and accordion player for the Flaming Pizzas) and an amazing feat by Arturia: Excellent usability! Excellent simplicity! The knobs are all ideally placed. You can te…

    Arturia brute - "A very compact concept!!!"

    04/01/14

    A synth that fits in your hand, pocket or a small lunch box. Personally, I use my kids' Spiderman pencil case to take it everywhere with me. Rather limited in terms of sound, because you cannot adjust anything. On the other hand, you have 5 notes …

    Arturia brute - "A really interesting concept!"

    04/01/14

    - 5 keys only, true, but it's more than enough for most EDM musicians. - 5-note polyphonic: It's a pity that Arturia didn't make it at least 10 for its first polyphonic synth, which would've allowed to have 2 notes of polyphony per key. - It has re…
