Arturia’s all-powerful 61-key 6-voice PolyBrute polysynth, with stereo dual-filter architecture, near-infinite tactile modulation capabilities, seamless sound-morphing, and never-before-seen expressive controls has just gotten better!

Firmware 2.0 brings in a host of new features that elevate the PolyBrute into a serious synth for those considering a new synth and for those who already own it.

New Features:

New EQ & Ensemble Effects

Shape the final stage of your patch with one of 7 EQ shapes in a new 4th FX slot, and expand & enrich PolyBrute’s stereo field with a 3-delay Ensemble effect inspired by vintage studio gear.

Synth Accuracy 

Inject further degrees of imperfection and randomness to parameters beyond pitch; adjust the accuracy of controls like OSC pulse width, filter settings, unquantized LFO rate and more for a humanized feel.

Chord Mode

PolyBrute now incorporates instant-access Chord mode for playing chords with a single note on the keyboard. Simply hold ‘Polyphony’ and play up to 6 notes to set your chord voicing.

Duophonic Aftertouch

PolyBrute’s aftertouch expressivity can now be tailored to suit your performance style. Configure Aftertouch to only apply to the last note or group of notes you press, leaving previously held notes unchanged.


3 Curve Enhancements Set PolyBrute’s third LFO curve to respond differently for further modulation control within your patch. Rise or fall, exponential or logarithmic, the shape of this LFO is entirely yours to mould.

Real-time Display Feedback

PolyBrute’s screen now displays parameter names and values in real-time, so you can focus better on your patch and stay on top of every little sonic tweak
