Arturia MicroFreak 4.0 firmware update that unlocks the WaveUser engine with user wavetables, advanced unison/chord functions, and new sounds.

Arturia has landed a huge success with the MicroFreak Synthesizer. The combination of a powerful digital engine and polyphonic aftertouch touch keyboard makes it a very special portable synth. And through the constant firmware updates, the MicroFreak is constantly growing in features. No comparison with version 1.0.

Today the journey continues with firmware 4.0 for the MicroFreak. This introduces another engine that is one of the most flexible so far.

Firmware 4.0 is another big step for the portable, super-expressive MicroFreak Synthesizer. It introduces a new WaveUser engine that is similar to the existing wavetable engine. The WaveUser engine, however, allows you to upload your custom wavetables. This is done via a new version of the Midi Control Center software which now has a wavetable tab. Here you can easily import samples and wavetables from best-known soft synths like Serum, Pigments…

The MCC software then converts these into MicroFreak compatible wavetables which can be done uploaded via drag-n-drop to the hardware. The MicroFreak supports a single bank of 16 wavetables. Comes directly with a factory bank, but can be changed as desired. The engine extends the spectrum of the synth once more

The engine extends the sound spectrum of the synth once more and makes it even more versatile and flexible. Then unison and chord modes also got an upgrade. They can now be applied to every MF note, from sequencer to external notes. It also adds fast encoder settings for the oscillator which is a very welcomed addition. Lastly, the new firmware 4.0 ships with 64 newly crafted presets.

Exploring The Engine

The new Arturia MicroFreak firmware 4.0 is available now as a free download. The new presets are available in the MIDI Center Software.
