Arturia 6-Voice Hybrid Synthesizer with Two Multi-Mode Digital Sound Engines per Voice, Analog Filter and VCAs, Arpeggiator/Sequencer and 37 Slim Keys

Arturia MiniFreak is a six-voice polyphonic hybrid keyboard that fuses two digital sound engines with analog filters, outside-the-box sequencing and instant-access modulation in a playful, curious and sometimes unpredictable way. MiniFreak encourages users to escape the ordinary and explore the unconventional with a 37-note velocity-sensitive keybed with aftertouch, weave intricate evolving performances with multiple modulation lanes, and discover endless sweet spots with a built-in digital effects engine – a wildly creative experience.

Unprecedented hybrid polyphony

With over 20 modes to choose from including Virtual Analog, FM and Additive, the interplay between MiniFreak's two oscillators can result in truly unique compound sonic behavior. With 6-voice polyphony, analog filters and the ability to process engine 1 through engine 2, MiniFreak puts premium polyphonic synthesis exploration into a compact abd tactile instrument that's as addictive as it is powerful.

Customizable & experimental sound design

Embellishing the popular Arturia '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, FM, ring modulation and familiar Spice and Dice randomization functions.

Mix-ready stereo sound

MiniFreak comes with stereo outputs and three digital effects slots with ten effects types to choose from. From stereo-enhancing chorus to surgical 3-band EQ to gritty six-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 and exploratory sound design, MiniFreak is also built as a responsive instrument of expression. Its velocity-sensitive 37-note keybed with aftertouch and spontaneous sequencer/arpeggiator 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 plug-in included

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.
