Arturia MicroFreak - Hybrid Analog/Digital Synthesizer with Advanced Digital Oscillators

The Arturia MicroFreak is a cutting-edge experimental hybrid analog/digital synthesizer featuring digital oscillators, an analog filter, and a touch-plate keyboard, well suited for musicians, sound designers, producers, and DJs at any experience level.

The MicroFreak features 11 digital oscillators with variable modes and includes the open source Plaits engine created by Mutable Instruments. With a remarkable amount of options and paraphonic performance capabilities, the MicroFreak ensures otherworldly sounds, modes, and parameter controls.

The built-in 25-note touchplate keyboard is pressure sensitive and offers polyphonic aftertouch for inspired performances. The state-variable analog filter is inspired by the 12 dB Oberheim SEM filter, allowing you to dial in screaming leads and whispering pads. Plus, with the integrated 5 x 7 matrix, you can route the filter cutoff to be controlled by the touch-plate keyboard pressure, or sequence events with the onboard sequencer. The sequencer allows you to record up to four automations, edit notes per step, or use the innovative Spice and Dice sequencer functions to generate happy accidents. Add randomization to create original patterns that evolve and push things even further with the modulation matrix.

The MicroFreak's rear panel features a single 1/4" main output and offers control voltage outputs on 3.5mm jacks with options for CV, Gate, and Pressure, as well as 3.5mm clock in and out jacks. MIDI I/O is available via 3.5mm jacks, and a set of two 3.5mm to 5-pin DIN adapters is included. Additionally, the Arturia MicroFreak features MIDI over USB Type-B which also provides a digital connection to your computer for DAW sequencing.

    Hosa Technology 2 MIDI to 2 MIDI (Dual) Cable - 9 ft

    Send and receive MIDI information through one cable assembly with Hosa Technologies' Dual-MIDI to Dual-MIDI 9.9-foot Cable. With a dense spiral copper shield to block interference and nickel-plated connector pins for precise data transfer, the Dual-MIDI to Dual-MIDI 9.9-foot Cable is an inexpensive option for connecting your MIDI-compliant devices.

    Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI)

    The MIDI protocol allows communication between a computer and a digital synthesizer (keyboard, drum machine, etc.) by transmitting how the notes are to be produced. For example, commands like note-on, note-off, pitch-shift, and tempo create much smaller files and more realistic music, relying on the synthesizer to create all audible sounds.

    Dual-MIDI Connectors

    This tandem MIDI cable allows sending and receiving MIDI information through one cable assembly. Red and white color-coded connectors differentiate between cables, making hookups easier.

    Discreet 5-Pin Connectors

    Each of the five pins on the connectors of these MIDI cables is wired to support all MIDI functions, including uploading and downloading data and relaying SysEx information.

    Cost-Conscious Design

    The injection-molded connector bodies with built-in strain relief are rugged and affordable, and the stranded copper conductors are surrounded by a dense copper shield to ensure interference-resistant data transfer.

    Colors and Lengths

    These cables are available in black, red, white, blue and orange, allowing for more organization when using multiple devices. In addition, Hosa makes their cables in a variety of lengths to suit virtually any application.
