Arturia MatrixBrute: Everything You Need to Know

In the world of synth and sequencing, there is a LOT to be said about the MatrixBrute from Arturia. Thankfully, we have Mauricio back in the Sam Ash Studio to take us through it and give us expert insight into this robust sound engine. He’ll show you how this machine was built around 2 Brute oscillators (VCO1 and VCO2) and show you how they operate. This synth has a full mixer for your VCO’s, 2 filters, 2 LFO’s, 3 envelopes, a full 64 step sequencing matrix, and so much more!

Mauricio ended his session by giving us a playing demonstration and an overall sound overview. You’ll be able to see how quickly the tone can be changed by manipulating just a few basic knobs. He’ll take you through each one and show you how simple or involved you can get in creating amazing sounds with the Arturia MatrixBrute.
