About: The MicroFreak is a nice little synth with cool sound capabilities, it does an excellent job on freaky sequences, percussion, chord progressions and even complete glitchy beats.. It’s not a powerhouse but a nice addition to your existing sounds. I also tend to get nice modular alike sounding loops out of it. It's a perfect electro machine and trippy techno station.
Apart from it’s digital hearth the little freak contains an analog filter making it less harsh and digital sounding than it already is. The envelopes are decent, snappy and fast. The bandpass filter just sounds lovely.
The sequencer is what makes it great, it’s very intuitive and spot on! You can record your automations realtime over a maximum of 64 steps with 3 different parameters maximum I assume.
Some of the engines are useful to me personally, the fm, modal, wavetable and noise engine, the v/a engine does a nice job too on rich sounding keys/chords.
In paraphonic mode it even does a nice job on polyphonic pads and chords, with the fm and wavetable engine you can get some nice movement going in your sounds.
I hope that in the near future Arturia will update the amount of engines with new ones, I think there are some open source ones that would do an excellent job inside the intuitive little Microfreak synth. It’s a fun portable synth, once in the studio it needs a bit of treatment to blend well in the mix.
Why this soundpack?
To show the sound capabilities of this tiny plastic box and inspire you to explore it even further. The sequences are meant to inspire you into a decent direction, modulate them or be so creative to make your own sequences with the corresponding presets, you can use mine but I will use them too perhaps ;-) I think i’ve explored and covered the most powerful features with this sound pack.
