The uniquely unpredictable MicroFreak features 14 digital oscillator modes, velvety analog filters, and heaps of modulation/randomization controls, supercharged with wild vocoding abilities.

The Vocoder Engine
Arturia has created a 16-band mode to transform your voice in the Freakiest way possible. The vocoder engine features 3 waveforms - sawtooth, pulse width, and noise - while the Timbre and Shape knobs adjust the response of the 16 frequency bands.

MicroFreak Vocoder Edition goes beyond robot vocals. 16 presets give you instant access to android translations, crystalline harmonies and vibrant formant sequences galore. Connect an external sound source like a drum machine or synth via the headphone socket for glitchy sound processing.

Vocoder Mode
With the vocoder oscillator selected and the paraphonic mode on, you will be able to hear up to 4 synthesized vocal notes when playing a chord and singing into the microphone. But the vocoder function is not exclusively for vocals; if you have the right connector, you can use this function
as an effects processor to re-synthesize your audio input.

Step Up to the Mic
A simple, removable mic attachment that lets you sprinkle your voice into the mix. A gooseneck design means quick position adjustment, with easy connection straight into the headphone socket alongside your cans. The utility menu lets you set your preferred mic gain and noise gate settings.

Improved Knob Functions
When using the vocoder function, turn the wave knob to produce sawtooth, pulse, or noise waveforms. Roll the timbre knob to change the frequency range of the analysis and the re-synthesis. Finally, the shape knob sets the bandwidth of each filter.

A Unique Dress Code
First impressions make a difference. MicroFreak has always been out to make a statement, and the Vocoder Edition is no exception. The control panel has been given a makeover. The center strip boasts a bold Swan graphic, while a sleek white finish makes this limited edition Freak stand out from the crowd - as if it didn't already.

The Freak Within
Behind the revamped appearance and microphone attachment is the same lovable maniac that set the synth world spinning. Sparkling digital and wavetable oscillators collide with warm analog filters. A unique poly-aftertouch PCB keyboard combines with a distinctly freaky arpeggiator and sequencer. Bathe your mix in sonic hysterics with the erratic mod matrix or the unique Spice & Dice randomizers.
