Hey there! Guy from Arturia here with that crazy little synth, MicroFreak
and in this video, I’m gonna show you what’s new and exciting in version 2.
Let’s check it out!
Version 2 is a free update which you can really quickly and easily install.
New in version 2 you’ll find a new noise oscillator, a handy
chord mode, or some scale quantization and refinements to the way the sequencer
and mod matrix work.
First up, let’s check out the new oscillator.
You’ll find the new noise oscillator by browsing with the type knob just like normal.
It lets you morph between noise types and introduce a sine, triangle or square waveform.
You can use the sound source to create lo-fi melodies, crunchy bass lines
but I find it works really well for making really interesting percussive sounds.
Let’s check out the parameters of the noise oscillator.
The wave knob lets you select four different types of noise.
At the minimum value, it will produce a particled, crackled type sound.
The closer we get to 50 the more pure white noise we get.
As we move from 50 to 70 we get a sort of synth cymbal noise and as we go
to the max value, we move into a more 808 cowbell square noise sound.
The timbre knob determines the sample rate of the noise and by default is static
and the same for all notes but you can obviously assign this parameter and
modulate it with the matrix.
The timbre knob also controls the pitch of the metallic noise.
It’s range goes from minus 4 octaves at zero up to plus 4 octaves
at the maximum value.
The last knob which is called shape does two things at once.
First, it selects the oscillator waveform
and secondly, it will set the mix balance between the noise and oscillator volume.
The volume crossfading stops when you hit 50 and then the volume of both parts
stays the same until you hit the max value.
The oscillator waveform is a sine from 0 to 50 and then morphs into a triangle and
square between 50 and 100.
To access the chord mode, simply hold the paraphonic button while pressing up to 4 notes on the keyboard.
You can now play whatever chord shape you just programmed in on any note you like with just one finger.
The paraphonic button will blink to indicate that the mode is active.
You can do this again to set a new chord shape but if you want to turn it off just hit
the paraphonic button again.
Each time you do this the chord shape is reset so
the button then functions as normal.
You can easily use the chord mode with the
arpeggiator at the same time to make your sequences even more interesting.
Another really cool addition is the new scale quantization.
This lets you play various musical scales just by using the white notes on the PCB keyboard.
For example, let’s say we want to play the C minor scale which obviously contains both white and black keys.
Now to be able to play this scale while only using the white keys,
let’s go into utility, preset, and scale and set it to minor while keeping C as the root note.
Now if we play what would usually be a C major scale on the white notes,
it will now playback C minor.
You can do this with loads of different quirky scales and it lets you play with a bit more confidence.
No more accidental wrong notes huh!
So onto the sequencer and our awesome
developers have updated it for version 2.
Now you can quickly copy and swap
patterns A and B within the same preset.
This is handy if you come up with a cool
sequence but then you want to quickly make an alternative version without
having to program it from scratch again.
To do this hold down sequence A and then press sequence B for one second.
The screen will tell you when it’s done
you can copy A to B or B to A whatever you prefer but this obviously only works
in the sequencer mode so bear that in mind.
Onto the mod matrix, this also has
a new feature that will save you some time before version 2 you if you wanted
to clear all the assigned parameters in the mod matrix you’d have to deselect them one by one.
Now you can easily clear them all at once by holding shift while
pressing the matrix knob.
Boom! all gone nice and easy.
We’ve also added a few useful but less glamorous features and refinements
there’s no visual feedback for the local control off mode which also now
translates a USB to MicroFreak MIDI out.
The release parameter of a preset is
now cleared instantly when changing to any preset and the sequencer record LED
now blinks on each beat instead of only on sixteenths.
The update to version 2 also includes some pretty cool new presets,
let’s have a listen to some of them right now!
Okay, that’s it!
Thank you so much for watching, now go update your MicroFreak
and if you don’t have one yet there has never been a better time.

    Analog Lab is clearly a bargain even with 40 presets less and also great for finding sounds if you have the V Collection. But it adds latency compared to the full instruments (about 0.7 ms tested and measured)… not that it’s obvious but it is a wrapper and probably meant more as a demo
