Arturia's MiniFreak Gets Another Update

US Version 2.0      12/12/23

We were already pretty impressed with the Arturia MiniFreak (see our review), with its polyphonic sound engine and  multi-engine oscillator structure, its got a lot to like.
Arturia have been rocking it with the firmware updates of late with their microFreak updates cause genuine excitement amongst users.

miniFreak will likely be the same and actually feels like were heading towards a sort of blurring of lines between Arturia's software only development  (Pigment perhaps?) and the software that runs in their hardware - miniFreak V is a software only version of the synth.

Here's a list of the new features - certainly nothing to be sniffed at...

New engine: Wavetable
Including 32 wavetables and 64 new patches to extend the raw potential of your sound, this update brings one of the most powerful engines to MiniFreak (available for Oscillator 1 only).

Super Unison
New FX: Super Unison
Transform a simple patch into a Supersaw monster with Super Unison FX. This chorus-type effect can stack up to 6 copies of a sound on top of a dry signal, for unmistakable width.

Enhanced Custom LFO
Users can now decide if the LFO rate corresponds to a single step, or the entire Shaper curve, empowering you to create more nuanced, evolving, and expressive modulations.

A favorites panel for hardware user
Save up to 64 of your favorite presets and access them with ease. Enter the favorites panel by pressing shift + save, store a patch by pressing save + selecting a sequencer slot and recall a saved patch with a step button press.

New sound store for MiniFreak V
Software users can make the most of a brand new Sound Store with two paid banks with 64 patches and three free banks with 32 patches at launch.
