Boards of Canada, Art of Noise, or Depeche Mode?

NEWS
JUNE 2018

Dear manuel,

At the peak of Summer, we’d like to salute all those brave people out there who are ignoring the beautiful weather, shunning the FIFA World Cup, and chilling out in their studios making awesome music. You are the real heroes!

In this week’s newsletter, we’d like to share some awesome features on our mighty MatrixBrute synthesizer, with an interview with Girls In Hawaii and a video from one of our favorite YouTubers, BoBeats. We’ve also got some amazing new sound banks that we know you’re just going to love.

When one of the coolest Indie bands out there chose MatrixBrute as their primary synth, we wanted to find out all about it. We spoke to their keyboard and bass player Daniel Offermann about how Arturia’s flagship monosynth opens up new methods of music-making for this quirky Belgian sextet.

Now you’ve had time to think about the question, do you prefer Boards of Canada, Art of Noise, or Depeche Mode?

Well, whatever your choice, Arturia’s latest V Collection sound banks have you covered! In the Sound Store, you’ll find fantastic new preset banks that will put the quintessential, otherworldly sound of Boards of Canada, the pioneering retro stylings of Art of Noise and Trevor Horn, and the drum, percussion, and rhythmic elements of Depeche Mode at your fingertips. We’ve also got a brand new bank dedicated to all things 128BPM: Hansen’s House. Enjoy!

Everyone’s favorite synth-loving Swede BoBeats had some very kind things to say about MatrixBrute in his comprehensive overview and sound demo video. If you’ve been thinking at adding this monstrously powerful synth into your creative setup but need an experienced user’s advice, check out his great video. You won’t be disappointed!
