Earlier this year, Arturia announced the MicroFreak – a Paraphonic Hybrid synthesiser featuring a digital oscillator, an analogue filter with a touch capacitive keyboard, reminiscent of the Don Buchla Music Easel.
The MicroFreak’s digital oscillator is the heart and soul of this synth and features a variety of different oscillator modes, capable of producing many different types of waveforms. It features an analogue 12dB filter inspired by the Oberheim SEM filter, with 3 different modes HPF, BPF, and LPF.
Combine this with a host of modulations capabilities including a cycling envelope and a modulation matrix along with a 64-step pattern sequencer, arpeggiator and capacitive keyboard with polyphonic aftertouch – you’ve got a recipe for a unique sounding synth indeed.
