Vocoder engine

Arturia developed an entirely new 16-band vocoder mode to transform your voice in the freakiest way possible. The vocoder engine features 3 waveforms – sawtooth, pulse width and noise – and MicroFreak's Timbre and Shape knobs adjust the response of the 16 frequency bands. MicroFreak Vocoder Edition goes beyond robot vocals: connect an external sound source like a drum machine or synth via the headphone socket for glitchy sound processing.

Step up to the mic

A simple, removable microphone attachment 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. MicroFreak's utility menu lets you set your preferred mic gain and noise gate settings.

A new dress code

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 new 'swan' graphic and a sleek white finish helps this limited edition 'Freak stand out from the crowd.

Inner MicroFreak

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. Sculpt your sounds with the mod matrix and punch up your performances with the unique Spice and Dice randomizers.
