    Un Grain de Folie / a touch of madness
    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.

    We're in this together
    While it can be fun to play by yourself, things get more exciting when there's two. Arturia loves to collaborate, and MicroFreak is the first collaboration between Arturia and acclaimed modular synth pioneers Mutable Instruments. Among the multiple modes of MicroFreak's synth engine you'll be able to select the much-loved Mutable Instruments Plaits oscillator and with added paraphony. Now you can enjoy the same otherworldly sounds, the same modes and the same parameter controls as the iconic Plaits eurorack module, but from a self-contained, performance-ready hardware synth.

    The best of both worlds
    Inspired by the trailblazing 12dB Oberheim SEM filter, you can make MicroFreak's filter scream or whisper to taste. The filter is state-variable and can even self-oscillate. You can use this is any way you like, from taking the edge off the razor-sharp wavetable sounds to automating the cutoff by modulating it with keyboard pressure or the built-in sequencer.

    Taste the spice, throw the dice
    Wait, did we mention that MicroFreak has a sequencer? And a mod matrix? Things are about to get seriously interesting! Record up to four automations, edit notes per step or use the innovative Spice and Dice sequencer functions to find happy accidents. Add randomization to create evolving, original patterns and virtually rewire and reconfigure its signal chain and controls with the 5×7 modulation matrix.

    'That's a funny looking keyboard'
    That's right, it is. It isn't really even a keyboard; it's a PCB, super-flat, with no moving parts. Will it track lightning-fast synth solos? You bet – 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.
