Arturia unleashes MicroFreak V3 firmware update, collaboration with Noise Engineering
MicroFreak's mad talents continue to evolve with every free update. Introducing MicroFreak Firmware V3, designed in collaboration with Noise Engineering to push MicroFreak’s sound further into the experimental digital realm. 3 razor-sharp new oscillator modes and a number of enhancements bring gritty digital character, workflow flexibility, and even more creative value to this wild hybrid synth.
3 Noise Engineering oscillator modes
Bass, SawX, Harm; 3 new algorithms that also feature in Noise Engineering’s flexible Virt Iter module, offering additive harmonic color, wavefolding, phase modulation, and more. Digital never sounded so dirty.
Unison mode
Up to 4-voice unison is now available for all oscillator types, with unison spread of up to 12 semitones that can also be used as a modulation destination. Make your basses bigger and your melodies more massive than ever.
More factory presets and slots
The number of preset slots has increased from 256 to 384, giving you more legroom to make MicroFreak your own - this even includes 96 more factory presets for more musical madness straight out the box.
Saving and loading presets
Enhancements to preset functionality makes MicroFreak easier and more intuitive than ever, including loading the last saved preset upon restart, and always retaining Chord Mode’s most recent chord within your saved preset.
All MicroFreak users can login and download Firmware V3 now to unlock the latest features, free of charge.
Discover the story behind the collaboration
MicroFreak’s new oscillator algorithms are the result of a different kind of journey in a different kind of year. Explore the story and challenges behind the unique collaboration between Arturia and LA-based digital Eurorack pioneers Noise Engineering.
