Arturia MicroFreak Vocoder Edition

music production hardware

The Arturia MicroFreak Vocoder Edition is an absolute blast to the past and future. Now merged with a 16 band vocoder and mic the MicroFreak got an upgrade plus a limited edition finish with some nice swan graphics. With its real-time voicing controls you can add extra expression and creativity to your live performance or music production journey. It is limited edition and how Arturia said it, “limitless madness” It’s an accurate replication of the human voice with its 16 frequency bands and the gooseneck mic will let you in fast to the deep world of vocoding. The MicroFreak now gets a new vocoder engine with 16 presets to sequence with coal melodies and modulate voice parameters with the rich LFO.

Want to get more experimental, process external instruments and sounds connecting them through the headphone input via 3.5mm TRRS and filter them through the vocoder for some crazy and unique sounds. Interesting to know that if you already own a MicroFreak you can now download and update to unlock the Vocoder Engine, its presents and obviously TRRS connectivity. With this synthesizer you can now think and imagine yourself singing along digital textures, adding paraphonic harmonies and speaking through modulated sequences, sounds interesting? This hardware is made for you.

The headphone socket is versatile, with it you can easily connect the gooseneck microphone while the fitting allows you to connect a set of headphones at the same time. You will be able to adjust your preferred gain and noise gate setting with the utility menu and with its human-like voice which is rich and complex the synthesizer will respond to you accurately. Ready to get creative, use the vocoder features like its waveforms, timbres and shape knobs to adjust the bands frequency with a couple of twists.
