Power beyond the matrix
The heart of the MatrixBrute is its unique modulation matrix that allows you to create your own routings. You can invent a sound palette of your own that will be sure to be heard in any mix! The matrix can also be used to recall your presets. So go on stage, and select any of the 256 presets instantly! No menus or awkward selection screens, everything is at your fingertips. As if it was not enough, the matrix is also made to program and play sequences. This is no ordinary step-sequencer. With its ability to also be used as a modulation source, sounds evolve in melody and texture, just the way you want.

Sound beyond the power
Offering an audiosignal path that is 100% analog, MatrixBrute also features true analog effects. The MatrixBrute gives you the sonic quality and power of a vast modular synthesizer but with the flexibility of presets along with a great arpeggiator and an advanced sequencer. MatrixBrute is a truly empowering instrument!! It offers tons of connections so you can work in any set-up. It brings a quality keybed and a solid chassis. No endless menus or screens to navigate or multi-function buttons to remember. Forget about connectivity issues. This is you in control. This is you inventing sounds. This is analog avant-garde.

Hands-On Heaven
Forget about tiny LCD screens, being lost in menus and sub-menus, and trying to remember double functions and complex procedures. MatrixBrute brings back the fun and the immediate hands-on experience of synthesis.

When you want things to shake, grab the Sub Osc slider and bring it on. When you want it to sizzle, grab the filter knob and open it up. And when it’s time to unleash the beast, grab the Brute Factor™ knob and turn it loose! It’s that easy.

What is your opinion of this product?
I'm 65 years old and was highly influenced by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. I also learned of and was involved with synthesizers from the very beginning. I built an early PAIA system, own a Mini-Korg, and ultimately acquired an ARP 2600 (very nice) which I regrettably sold. Ever since, I have been longing for another modular synthesizer. When the Matrixbrute came along, I was highly skeptical. However, I was intrigued because it claimed to have a Moog-style "ladder" filter. This was instrumental in giving Emerson's Moog the huge - fat - sound that I loved and wanted. (The ARP did not have this quality) The Matrixbrute also claimed to have the same kind of routing, or "patching", capability as a truly modular system. When I was finally able to lay my hands on one, I quickly learned that their claims were correct. First and foremost, I wanted to be able to duplicate all of the sounds and textures that I had heard from ELP, and so far this instrument has not disappointed. It does take some getting used to and lots of tweaking, but the sounds ands effects are there. The only peculiarity is that it uses digital circuitry to control analog circuitry. However, this is what allows you to save any sound that you have built so, even though it's a little squirrely, it's acceptable. BTW, to save a patch, you must first turn off the PROTECT switch on the back of the unit. And this brings me to my only complaint: the lack of support. I followed the instructions in the manual to save a preset, and it wouldn't accept it. When I got on line, I discovered there was no contact phone number. I had to fill out a lengthy and cumbersome email form. They came back a couple of days later essentially parroting what the manual said. I replied that that had worked, but got no response. A couple of days later I sent yet another email. Finally, someone provided me with the aforementioned tidbit, and I was able to save my patch (Lucky Man) to a preset. Have fun.
