Two engines, many voices

A dynamic selection of sounds that contrast, collide, and conspire to create.

Classic sinewave to fearsome supersaw bass, pizzicato-plucked strings to dense stacked chords. MiniFreak’s engines pack a punch - or 22, to be precise. From our own algorithms to unique modes designed by modular synth wizards, here’s what you’ve got to play with:

Mutable Instruments

Like its smaller sibling, MiniFreak contains a number of open-source oscillator modes from Eurorack legends Mutable Instruments, enhanced with polyphony and ’Freak flexibility.

Noise Engineering

For the braver, bolder sound explorer, MiniFreak contains 3 algorithms designed by LA modular titans Noise Engineering, combining wavefolding, phase modulation, and harmonic manipulation.

Analog Filters

Magic happens where digital and analog meet.

MiniFreak embraces the crisp, glassy, sometimes aggressive sound of digital oscillators. But this machine isn’t taking sides; enjoy the best of both worlds with the warm, responsive, authentic sound of polyphonic analog filters. Tame harshness, create movement, and make subtractive synthesis work for you.

Polyphonic

Every note you play will be shaped and colored individually thanks to analog filters for every voice, ensuring that each melody, chord, or percussive hit is as warm and vivid as the last.

3 modes

Balance MiniFreak’s sound to sit perfectly in your mix, or target specific frequency ranges to unlock unique harmonics with low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass states.

Modulation

Sweep a filter yourself, crush or widen its envelope - but MiniFreak has other ideas. Send your analog filters into an modulation frenzy or keep it moving in-line with your sequencer for filtering that goes further.

The finishing touch

Beautiful, crunchy, unstoppable stereo sound awaits.

Augment, transform, and polish whatever combination of engines you’ve chosen with 3 stereo FX engines. From space-enhancers, to textural algorithms, to outright sonic destruction, these FX are ready to be tweaked & modulated to your heart’s content.

Spontaneous sequencing

Blur the lines between sequencing and arpeggiation with wild results.

When you need quick step-sequencing, instant note repetition, or rhythmic consistency, MiniFreak will answer the call. But if you want to go a step further - to interact with your melodies or impulsively change direction - this flexible sequencer & arpeggiator is armed to the teeth with creative tricks.

Arp controls

Change single-note repetitions into chord stabs, switch octaves in seconds, and introduce totally random notes with the Mutate button for arpeggios that leave an impression.

Spice & Dice

A familiar feature for Freak fans, Spice & Dice alters various parameters, including pitch, gate, and more, so you can take your hands off the wheel and savor some inspiration in the unexpected.

Modulation lanes

Lock in custom changes to your filters, envelopes, FX, and beyond using 4 modulation lanes, ensuring that it’s not just your notes that repeat in perfect sync - it’s your whole sound too.

Modulation galore

Borderline-softsynth flexibility with single-knob control.

There’s nothing wrong with static sounds, but MiniFreak embodies the belief that there’s joy to be found in movement and change. Make instant connections between MiniFreak’s plethora of modulation sources, common destinations like filter and oscillator pitch, and assignable destinations, and craft your own ever-changing, ever-surprising, and ever-inspiring sounds.

In perfect harmony

MiniFreak plays by the musical rules when you need it to.

Focus on getting creative and experimental with your sound without worrying about hitting the wrong notes or chord voicing mishaps. MiniFreak’s Scale & Chord modes keep tabs on your musical input so you don’t have to.

Chord mode

Play full chord voicings with a single key thanks to this familiar musical feature. By default, Chord mode is set to a major triad, but you can input your own custom voicings one note at a time, which will be saved to MiniFreak’s memory.

Scale mode

Wave goodbye to wrong notes by locking MiniFreak’s keyboard and musical input to a scale of your choice. Choose from 5 pre-loaded scales, or punch in your own for melodies that never go outside the lines.

Polyphonic, diatonic

Combine both Chord mode and Scale mode for creating full chord sequences, polyphonic ideas, and harmonized melodies that stay in key at all times, making musical creativity effortless, enjoyable, and rewarding without fail.
