One of the stars of this year’s NAMM Show, the arrival of Arturia’s MicroFreak has been eagerly awaited by many, so we come with good news, the MicroFreak has been released.
This monophonic and 4-voice paraphonic instrument has a slightly quirky look about it and also boasts a rather unusual feature set. As well as a multimode digital oscillator, it also includes an Oberheim SEM-inspired analogue filter.
Other features include a pressure-sensitive PCB keyboard, a multi-point modulation matrix, a sequencer-arpeggiator with controlled randomness Spice and Dice parameters, a cycling envelope, 128 factory presets, and space for 64 user sounds. Plus a lovely OLED display lets you keep track of what’s going on.
The MicroFreak is available now and costs $299/£279/€349.
