Arturia PolyBrute 6-Voice Polyphonic Morphing Analog Synthesizer

ARTURIA POLYBRUTE: 61-key Analog Synthesizer with Brute-series Oscillators, 2 VCFs, 3 LFOs, 3 Envelope Generators, Modulation Matrix, and Onboard Effects Two classic analog voltage-controlled filters With its dual-filter design — a Steiner-Parker filter and a Ladder filter, the Arturia PolyBrute is steeped in rich and creamy analog vibe.

CRYPTO ART an emerging cyberpunk medium

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a special type of cryptographic token which represents something unique; non-fungible tokens are thus not mutually interchangeable.[1] This is in contrast to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, and many network or utility tokens that are fungible in nature.[2] Non-fungible tokens are used to create verifiable digital scarcity, as well as digital ownership, and the possibility of asset interoperability across multiple platforms.[3] NFTs are used in several specific applications that require unique digital items like crypto art (rare art), crypto-collectibles and crypto-gaming. The first use case of gaming related NFTs have been crypto-collectible trading card games. Projects like Age of…
