Everyone was pleasantly surprised when Arturia released the Firmware V2 update for their MicroFreak around NAMM 2020. It added a totally new vocoder oscillator type as well as several other enhancements.

This is all possible as its got a digital engine at its heart which enables Arturia to add and refine features.

Now as we enter what would have been the NAMM period (actually, the virtual event is scheduled to run 18th-22nd), Arturia have released another major update for the MicroFreak - V 3.0. Its also a collaborative effort, with three new oscillator types from Noise Engineering.

The new firmware includes:

3 Noise Engineering oscillator modes
Bass, SawX, Harm; 3 new algorithms that also feature in Noise Engineering's flexible Virt Iter module, offering additive harmonic color, wavefolding, phase modulation, and more. Digital never sounded so dirty.

Unison mode
Up to 4-voice unison is now available for all oscillator types, with unison spread of up to 12 semitones that can also be used as a modulation destination. Make your basses bigger and your melodies more massive than ever.

More factory presets and slots
The number of preset slots has increased from 256 to 384, giving you more legroom to make MicroFreak your own - this even includes 96 more factory presets for more musical madness straight out the box.

Saving and loading presets
Enhancements to preset functionality makes MicroFreak easier and more intuitive than ever, including loading the last saved preset upon restart, and always retaining Chord Mode's most recent chord within your saved preset.

This can be downloaded from the Arturia.com website right away and is FREE.
