Arturia

Description

Arturia’s MiniFreak features two sound engines that uniquely interact with each other for unique compound sonic behavior. With 6-voice polyphony, analog filters, FM and ring modulation, and the ability to process engine 1 through engine 2, MiniFreak puts premium polyphonic synth exploration into a compact and tactile instrument that’s as addictive as it is powerful.

Customizable and Experimental Sound Design

Embellishing the popular Freak modulation matrix, MiniFreak gives users even more control over shaping, transforming, and evolving their sound, with features like polyphonic ADSR envelopes, customizable multi-segment LFO shapes, and the familiar Spice & Dice randomization.

Mix-ready Stereo Sound

MiniFreak not only comes with stereo outputs for ultra-wide dual-engine sounds; it features three digital FX slots with 15 FX types to choose from. From stereo-enhancing chorus to surgical 3-band EQ, to gritty 6-mode distortion, users will have everything they need to push their sound over the edge while keeping it mix-ready.

Expression, Meet Chaos

Despite its penchant for wild & exploratory sound design, MiniFreak is also built as a responsive instrument of expression. Its velocity-sensitive 37-note keybed and responsive Seq/Arp functionality makes it a dream to perform with, while its randomization features and modulation lanes put playfulness and sonic momentum immediately at users’ fingertips.

MiniFreak V

MiniFreak comes with a dedicated VST counterpart, letting users totally integrate its unique hybrid sound into their DAW productions and vice versa. Using identical sound engines and architecture, it offers a like-for-like virtual experience of the synth itself, at no extra cost.
