An all-powerful 61-key 6-voice polysynth, with stereo dual-filter architecture, near-infinite tactile modulation capabilities, seamless sound-morphing, and never-before-seen expressive controls.

The 6-voice pure analog PolyBrute builds on award-winning technology and sound to deliver the polysynth you've been waiting for. PolyBrute has an expansive morphing architecture and a solid, expressive 61-key range that'll take your sound where no synth has gone before.

Evolution of the Brute

PolyBrute's panel has knobs and switches delivering the immediate satisfaction of real-time tactile control over your entire analog domain.

Each pure analog voice is a feature-packed sonic power tool featuring two highly versatile Brute waveshaping VCOs, a full-spectrum noise generator, enhanced Steiner multimode filter, custom lowpass ladder filter, 3 LFOs, 3 Envelope Generators, and more. They all meet up in the Matrix to bring you patching flexibility normally reserved for modular systems.

Use PolyBrute's 6 voices polyphonically or in splits and layers - and stack them in Unison mode when you want to peel the paint off the walls. The sum total is an endless palette of sounds ranging from beauty to beast.

Morph or modulate?

Imagine being able to smoothly sweep all parameters at once. PolyBrute goes even further, with each preset existing in two states simultaneously - and a dedicated Morph knob that lets you seamlessly morph between them, revealing an infinite continuum of inspiring new sounds in between.

Great-feeling pitch and multifunction wheels provide familiar expressivity, with the flexibility of parameter assignment. There's even an assignable touch-sensitive strip immediately above the keyboard ready for you to slip, slide and tap. Arguably at the heart of this expressive performability is the Morphee three-dimensional touchpad. This revolutionary feature offers 3-axis control over patch morphing, sequence/arpeggiator randomization, or up to 32 assigned Matrix modulations per axis - adding a unique human touch.

Finally, PolyBrute is supercharged with expansive modulation functions. Say no to static basslines and monotonous chord voicings; use 3 LFOs and 3 Envelope Generators to inject organic movement and dynamics like never before.

Enter the matrix

Instant access to 768 presets. No menus, no waiting - just like everything else on PolyBrute. The Matrix is the digital brain to PolyBrute's analog heart; a flexible, hands-on interface with multiple functions that can be tailored to your performing, recording, or composing needs.

In Mods mode, the Matrix button grid is a digital patchbay, letting you easily route any of your modulation sources and controllers to influence just about any parameter you can think of. With 64 connections and up to 32 modulation destinations, you're fully empowered for some serious synth wizardry.

In Sequencer mode, the Matrix becomes a visual interface presenting everything you need to create ear-popping polyphonic sequences, arpeggios and trailblazing hybrids. In addition to notes, you can also record and replay your synth parameter changes, transforming the Sequencer into a whole new modulation source to breathe energy into your tracks and performances.

Hands-on heaven

PolyBrute puts all that analog power right up front with dedicated knobs and switchesmaking menu diving and memorization a thing of the past. Almost everything you touch also generates MIDI, so you can capture your every move as part of your DAW productions.

Need some instant attitude? Crank up the enhanced Steiner filter's Brute Factor. Want to change the cutoff on both filters at once? Grab the Master Cutoff knob. Time to shake the foundation? Dial in VCO 2's sub-oscillator. It's all right there in front of you. To complete the classic look, a set of optional wooden legs are available.

Step back, leap forward

PolyBrute comes armed with powerful sequencing and arpeggiation abilities.

Use the Matrix in Sequencer mode to fire up a 64-step sequence, step away from the keys, and focus on real-time modulation and dynamic tweaking. Add velocity, accents, slides, and randomization for sequence that evolves and responds to every musical nuance.

Instantly generate animated arpeggios with multiple musical directions, optionally repeated in higher octaves. Go further with the Matrix Arpeggiator mode, with a hybrid 16-step framework that lets you generate complex arpeggiated textures - a whole new realm of assisted performance!

Polyphony in stereo

For a polysynth to truly shine, depth simply isn't enough - width is a necessity. PolyBrute features left and right unbalanced 1/4" jacks for your master stereo audio output - with functions specifically designed to make the most of the stereo field.

Stereo displacement of voices can be controlled in the output section. This subtly pans each of the 6 voices left and right to varying degrees, allowing you to swing from a focused centralized sound, to a larger-than-life immersive width. In addition, the dual filter design can be routed in parallel, resulting in a discrete stereo sound. In this mode, the left and right channels can have different evolving sounds that be manipulated with the morphing features.

Finally, a built-in array of high-quality digital effects adds the finishing touch to your patches in full stereo fashion. Polybrute includes favourite algorithms from Arturia's critically acclaimed software FX Collection, along with some new reverbs and delays to take advantage of PolyBrute's stereo architecture. Better still, you can modulate certain effects' parameters with the mod matrix for animated space and texture that's out of this world.

I'm still very much in the honeymoon phase of owning this synth but I'm thoroughly impressed. THE VCOs sound amazing, the modulation capabilities are mind-boggling, and the build quality is honestly quite breathtaking. There's a lot to discover and it's going to be a long journey to uncover all the power lurking beneath the matrix. I'm not exaggerating when I say that this synth has renewed my love of synths.
If you're looking to escape "the box" and want a flagship synth at the heart of your studio, this is a winner and should be strongly considered. It's expensive but for the amount of joy it brings I'd say it's worth it. Say goodbye to your family and friends and get ready for a deep dive.
I also want to give kudos to the Calgary Chinook sales team for for their amazing customer service. Exemplary communication all around.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
