Arturia MICROFREAK Vocoder Edition

The limited-edition white Arturia MicroFreak Vocoder builds upon the success of the original MicroFreak synthesizer and adds a 16-band vocoder mode, detachable gooseneck microphone, as well as a sleek white aesthetic.

16-band Vocoder with detachable microphone

Microfreaks 16-Band Vocoder allows you to accurately replicate the human voice via 16 frequency bands. While the easy-to-use and detachable gooseneck microphone ensure comfortable and instant vocoding.

Vocoder Mode

Combine the new Vocoder Mode with all the much-loved features of the MicroFreak and you’ll be manipulating your sound like never before. Whether you’re sequencing vocal melodies or manipulating voice parameters with the LFO, the possibilities are endless. There’s also 16 colourful presets to get you started.

Connect external sound sources

What’s more, the MicroFreak Vocoder allows you to process external instruments to achieve some unique results. Simply connect straight to the headphone input via a 3.5mm TRRS cable!

Limited-edition white finish with Swan graphic

Giving the much-loved freak a makeover, the MicroFreak Vocoder comes in a limited edition white version. The casing, control panel, and center strip have all been revamped, complimenting the adventurous new voice from the Vocoder!

Uniquely Unpredictable MicroFreak formula

Sing alongside digital textures; add paraphonic harmonies to external sound sources; and scatter spoken word through modulated sequences. It’s your voice, but you can spice, dice and warp it beyond recognition!

Sporting a simple and removable mic attachment, you can sprinkle your voice into the mix when you need to. Then, when you’re not using it, easily store it away. Thanks to its gooseneck design, you can quickly movie it into position, and it connects straight into the headphone socket. As well as the ability to have your headphones connected at the same time.

Using the convenient utility menu, the MicroFreak Vocoder allows you to fine-tune your mic gain and noise gate settings. While the 16-band Vocoder design ensures the harmonics of the human voice are detected, filtered, and replicated accurately.

What’s more, the Vocoder engine features 3 waveforms in sawtooth, pulse width, and noise. While the Timbre and Shape knobs can be used to adjust the frequency bands and transform your voice. But that’s not all, the MicroFreak Vocoder Edition goes far beyond simple robot vocals. Featuring 16 new presets, you can instantly access android translations, crystalline harmonies, as well as vibrant formant sequences.

Everything you love about the original MicroFreak

Finally, the MicroFreak Vocoder Edition includes everything there is to love about the original. Including sparkling digital and wavetable oscillators that collide with velvety analog filters. As well as a unique poly-aftertouch PCB keyboard that combines the distinctly freaky arpeggiator and sequencer.

Then, you can always take advantage of the erratic mod matric and the unique Spice and Dice randomizer.

Above all, MicroFreak Vocoder is out to break the rules and gives you unlimited solutions for creating mind-bending sounds that will give any musician an adrenaline rush!
