Whether you're looking for your first, affordable hardware synth or are collector looking for original sounds and unique interface, MicroFreak is the synth you need.
A synthesizer like no other, MicroFreak blends wavetable and digital oscillators with analog filters. It features a unique poly-aftertouch flat keyboard. It adds controlled randomness to sequences. MicroFreak features 11 awesome oscillators, 4 bespoke Arturia engines, and 7 modes from their friends at Mutable Instruments.
This out-there little music machine features a versatile digital oscillator so you can create rare and interesting sounds with ease. Modes like Texturer, KarplusStrong, Harmonic OSC, and Superwave give adventurous musicians the chance to explore totally new, unheard possibilities. Like having dozens of synths in just one instrument, both wild-eyed newcomers and seasoned professionals will fall in love with MicroFreak's flexible, powerful synth engine.
About the unusual looking keyboard - it isn't really a keyboard, it's a PCB. Super-flat, with no moving parts that will track lightning-fast synth solos. Better than a traditional keyboard, actually. Will it let you be expressive? Of course. It's not only pressure sensitive, but also offers poly-aftertouch. This means each key can control parameters in a different way depending on how much you touch.
You can also use its USB, MIDI, and CV outputs to control instruments in your DAW and modular synths. This also means that you can also use MicroFreak as a controller to experience polyphonic aftertouch with cutting edge software instruments. MicroFreak is set to redefine what low-cost digital synths can do.
