A powerful digital oscillator with loads of atypical modes, an analog filter, and a modulation matrix are what defines the Arturia MicroFreak Hybrid Synthesizer. It might look innocent, but it's kinky under the covers. MicroFreak is an extremely versatile little monster that can sound sweet, terrific, hypnotic, deep, chaotic, and authentic. It features an expressive etched touch-keyboard which also adds to its stylish appearance.

Oscillator Modes
The digital oscillator is prepared to do things other synths simply wouldn't consider. With modes like Texturer, KarplusStrong, Harmonic OSC, Superwave, adventurous musicians will be able to explore totally new possibilities. We have also partnered with acclaimed Eurorack Manufacturer Mutable Instruments, including the Plaits oscillator with added paraphony.

Touch Keyboard with Aftertouch
Don't be afraid to try something new and unusual. MicroFreak's touch plate is fast, natural, and expressive. It can detect pressure, and offers polyphonic aftertouch!

State Variable Analog Filter
Opposites attract, so Arturia has coupled their digital oscillator with an analog filter. Inspired by the trailblazing 12-dB Oberheim SEM filter, you can make it scream and whisper to taste. This filter can even auto-oscillate!

Poor customer experience


Item is good but purchased the previous item that was the white version and no one told me it would never be back in stock. If it wasnt for me calling several times to find out where my item was it would have just never been sent to me. This was to have been a Christmas gift. Utter fail will never use sam ash again.



I would buy again


I love this synthesizer nice purchase



Great Purchase!


Love my Microfreak!



Great synth for Sound design.


the mod matrix is so easy to use. Now if they would only add custom wavetable import this little device could do almost anything. I even find myself using the Keybed with other synths when I want to modulate sounds via the pressure sensitivity.



A powerful synth in a small package.


A fun little paraphonic synth. It is surprisingly versatile and unique for what it does. Make sure to grab the 2.0 firmware update!



So much in such a small, affordable package. Get it!


So, so good. I can't believe how much is packed in to this little sucker. Sounds are great, easy to use and combined with the Beatstep Pro there's almost nothing you can't do. Highly recommended and be sure to download the preset packs from the website. They're killer.



A uniquely intuitive, compact, and affordable hybrid synth.


Pros: - Small. - Light. - Affordable. - Easy to connect to a computer and update. - Can be run on USB battery power or included wall adapter. - Keyboard affords unique playing capabilities that let you modulate what you're playing both with the hand on the keyboard and the hand on the knobs. - Matrix interface is super intuitive. If you want to change how your sound works, you just can. Need to drive the cutoff threshold with the LFO? Just go there on the matrix and say how much you want the one to impact the other. Easy. - Lots of interesting arpeggiation and sequencing features, which are all fairly well-documented by the manual. Cons: - Limited effects. There's no bitcrush, reverb, delay, overdrive, etc., pretty much just a filter. You'll have to output to something else if you want to spice things up. - Tutorials tend to be either "here's what I did" or "here are the keys you can press" and not "watch as I navigate the soundspace to create my desired voice." Overall, I think it's hard to find something this fun and usable at this price point. I'd recommend this even if you were trying to introduce a younger user to semi-modular synths.



I will shop here again,


I had a good experience with my order and delivery. I purchased an Arturia MicroFreak which is a great product.



Great product sold by a great company!!


Great little synth. So many possibilities. A lot of fun for a great price!! Digital with an analog filter. Sequencer. What more could you ask for?





Nice sound
