Experimental Hybrid Synth (2019)
KEYBOARD The main keyboard is pretty .. surpring not really professionaly-oriented, similar to AKS and awful EDP wasp based on finger conductivity the display is pretty nice based on OLED technologyThe ICON strip replace a traditional bend and modulation and these can be freely assigned.
SYNTHESIS First of the series "non brute" the main core oscillators are digital based on open source project from MUTABLE (great producer of modular stuff). This time filter is not based on steiner parker! basically the Microfreak is monophonic, but it can be used as paraphonic but a little more advanced, using different VCA and enveloppe but still sharing a single VCF.
The digital oscillator has 12 algorithms with variable sub section called wave timbre and shape; 7 out of 12 algorithms are derived from modular PLAITS and 5 others by Arturia. Algorithms are: superwave (roland JP8000) wavetable (ppg) harmonic osc (additive), karplus strong, waveshaper, 2 OP FM like dx, formant (kinda granular), chord and speech (formant phonems like old 8 bits stuff)
ARPEGGIATOR with 3 modes (up, order -4notes you play - and random. Can be synched and slaved to clock with variable dividers. Special random functions can alterate notes, lenght, gate and more.
SEQUENCER 2 patterns of 64 notes called A/B can be recorded in real time or step mode with tie/rest function.
MEMORY 128 rom sounds + 128 USER FREE with 11 family instruments for quick retrival. a free utility called MIDI Control Center can be downloaded for free from arturia website.
