Tutorials

Ep. 1: Introduction

Dive into oscillator heaven

Let’s take a run-through the various oscillator types, each varying in sound and functionality. Bryan then takes a look at the modifiers (Wave, Timbre and Shape) to customize the sound even more. Throw in a touch of paraphony, and the first impressions are set to last.

Ep. 2: Modulations

Modilicious tweaks at your fingertips

Synthesis takes on a whole new level of experimentation when the modulations are connected. By using the matrix, the ‘assign anything to control anything’ approach adds a whole new level of sound design. Use the LFO in creative ways, the envelope and cycling envelope, and any other function you see to add movement to the sound.

Ep. 3: Keyboard & Arpeggiator

More than just a keyboard

Yes, the keyboard might look different to what you’ve played before, but once you get your hands on it you will understand why we’ve chosen this PCB keyboard. It’s sensitive and expressive, just like Bryan himself (he’s a very sensitive guy). Switch the arpeggiator on and you’re in instant inspiration mode

Ep. 4: Sequencer

Seq-education is important

MicroFreak turns into a real beast once you set the sequencer in motion. It’s got two paraphonic sequencers, which means you can record and play back up to four voices simultaneously. See how easy it is to record a sequence and be able to take sequencing to another level.

Ep. 5: Connectivity

Veni, Vidi, Connectivity

MicroFreak is a great all-in-one box, throughout the tutorial series you’ve seen a bit of what it can do as a standalone unit. If you want a synth with presets, great lead, bass, keys, pads sounds, this will be great for you. If you are into the world of connecting to other hardware and software equipment, MicroFreak plays along with them very nicely too. Let’s get connected.

Ep. 6: Vocoder

A new voice - yours!

MicroFreak now comes armed with a Vocoder oscillator engine. In this tutorial episode, Lena takes the new mode for a spin, demonstrating its combination of wild vocoding capabilities and complex digital sonic palette. There's new controls to explore, new settings to tweak, and a tonne of spicy new sounds at your disposal. Enjoy
