Arturia MicroFreak Vocoder Edition

by Arturia
$479.99

This special edition of the Arturia MicroFreak offers the same sonic arsenal of the original MicroFreak, including wavetable and digital oscillators, analog filters, a modulation matrix, and an expressive touch plate, and it ratchets up the sonic mayhem with a 16-band vocoder mode. The core of the MicroFreak’s adventurous sound is its digital oscillator and wavetable oscillators. With a slew of unique modes, such as Texturer, KarplusStrong, Harmonic OSC, Superwave, and sound engines from Eurorack pioneers Mutable Instruments’ Plaits module, the MicroFreak opens up possibilities far beyond the average subtractive synthesizer. When Arturia dropped the MicroFreak, synthesists at Sweetwater were blown away by the power of this diminutive and affordable synth, which is packed to the gills with advanced features — 64-step sequencer, arpeggiator, modulation matrix, chord mode with up to four notes of paraphony, and more. Now, with the vocoder, there’s little this freaky synth can’t do!
