In a surprise move, Arturia has announced the V3 firmware for the MicroFreak synthesizer, available now as a free update. This firmware was created in collaboration with Eurorack modular synth manufacturer, Noise Engineering, who are specialists in hard hitting digital oscillators and effects.
3 New synth engines are available:
- Bass: A non-linear wave shaping algorithm to produce tuff low-end sounds.
- Harm: Combines additive synthesis with wavefolding to produce shimmering textures.
- SawX: A supersaw sound that produces complex results.
The new firmware also includes a new Unison mode allowing you to stack up to 4-voices for all oscillator types, giving you a unison spread of up to 12 semitones.
