  1. I was not fond of the OG Polybrute sound, compared to other analog engines I play. When listening to the demo that hasn’t changed. Mind you it sounds very good, just not my cup of tea. But the way that keyboard plays, especially how it interacts with the envelopes, is fantastic. So indeed if Arturia could come up with a MIDI controller based on this keybed, and incorporate a sequencer like Novation did, they might have a wonderful product in their hands. For now, I’ll stick to Osmose and Hydrasynth as expressive keybeds.
