It might sound a bit wild and crazy, but MicroFreak is easy to understand and quick to master. Every feature is clearly marked and simple to access and control, letting MicroFreak enhances your creativity rather than standing in its way. On this page, we'll cover a few of the things that make MicroFreak a truly unique specimen. The multiple modes of MicroFreak's digital oscillator can be easily switched and directly controlled with the 4 dedicated knobs in the Digital Oscillator section. The Type knob switches between the engines, while the Wave, Timbre, and Shape controls let you refine the oscillator to suit your taste.
Since its inception, MicroFreak has been constantly evolving. It now contains 16 oscillator types, covering a multitude of timbral flavors from sweet to savage. We've also integrated the open-source Plaits oscillator developed by Eurorack legends Mutable Instruments to bring you 7 additional synth modes.
While all of the oscillators in MicroFreak are naturally monophonic, you can choose to enable paraphony to play up to 4-voices at once. 3 new algorithms designed in collaboration with LA modular heavyweights Noise Engineering.
Combining wavefolding, phase modulation, and harmonic manipulation, these vicious sounds push MicroFreak further than ever into the digital realm. Despite its small size, MicroFreak has a modulation matrix and advanced functions that make even giant synths jealous. With 5 sources and 7 destinations available, you can virtually rewire components within MicroFreak to create totally unique sounds, especially as 3 of the destinations are user-assignable! With easy programming using the clickable Matrix knob, a clear light-up display, and extra detail shown in the OLED screen, you'll never be left guessing what changes you're making. It's easy, fast, and fun, and gives you super-powerful results that you'd expect from a synth ten times the price.The combination of digital oscillator and analog filter is a powerful one, and the often sharp, crystalline sounds of the oscillators can be beautifully tamed or shaped using the tasty 12-dB per-octave filter, based on the legendary Oberheim ®-designed SEM filter. MicroFreak's sequencer isn't just any old synth sequencer, it's a dual mode arpeggiator/sequencer with innovative features that will keep your creative juices flowing. MicroFreak's tactile interface is like nothing you've ever used before.
A flat, touch-sensitive keyboard with no moving parts may seem alien, but it feels so natural to use. The 25-key printed circuit board not only track the notes you play with lightning-speed, but can also detect pressure or aftertouch on each note individually. This has some exciting applications within MicroFreak itself, but also for polyphonic aftertouch-enabled virtual instruments when MicroFreak is used as a MIDI controller. The touch-controls above the keyboard also give you access to the key parameters of the sequencer, while the touch strip can be used as a pitch bender, or to control the amount of "Spice" and "Dice" in your sequences.So much, for so little. Just as our debut synth MiniBrute set new standards for compact analog instruments back in 2012, MicroFreak is set to redefine what affordable digital synths can do.
