This demo features the dry, raw sound of the synth with no added external effects or processing.
The MicroFreak from Arturia combines digital wavetable synthesis with an genuine analog filter in a super light-weight package. In place of normal keys it features a two-octave, non-mechanical, capacitive-touch keyboard with aftertouch. The synthesis engine is very simple and lacks an effects engine, but there are enough settings and routing options to make it a formidable and flexible synthesis machine.
As I often find, the factory presets leave a lot to be desired. The synthesizer is actually capable of so much more pleasing and interesting sounds. So here I present my custom presets for the Arturia MicroFreak…
I’ve focused on recreating sounds that were popular during the 70’s and ’80s heyday of synthesis. Leads, polysynths, pads, strings, brass, bass, organs, and more.
I’ve created over 90 patches for the MicroFreak so far, but I’m only getting started. So order now at the introductory price, and once I add more patches to the pack and start selling it at a higher price I’ll send you updates for free. Also, I’m always taking requests, so send those my way and if I can pull off the sound, I’ll add it to the pack.
Q: How do I get these sounds onto my synth?
A: Download the software from the Arturia website and connect your MicroFreak to your computer using a USB cable.
Q: Can you recreate the synth sound from _______?
A: The MicroFreak is extremely limited in its sound-sculpting capabilities. It also has no effects engine at all. I love to receive your requests and will take a shot at it, but bare in mind that there are many things the MicroFreak simply cannot do.
