Giuliano (orange) and Mae (black) enjoy a jam session with the Arturia MicroFreak. Submitted by Alessandro Cilano via our Facebook page.
Giuliano in particular seems to be enjoying it.
The MicroFreak has become one of our main instruments for live performance as well as experimentation. Here is one of our videos demonstrating its features.

In the middle of a patch this cat just sits down on the keyboard and gets the arpeggiator going lol.
Of all the synthesizers in Behringer’s growing catalog, the Neutron is one of the two that most interests me personally, the other being the new VC340 Vocoder. You can see my encounter with Behringer’s synths before NAMM in this video.
“Amazing 90’s “groove-synth”/workstation with:
Fast and fun sound design: plenty of knobs, including ADSR macros for Amp and Filter envelope. Modulation wheel can map up to 5 knobs.
DTE (“difficult to explain”) synthesis somewhere between virtual-analog and rompler sounds.”
“28 voice polyphony across 7 tracks: kick, snare, hi-hat (2 voice), percussion (12-voice kits), and 3 parts for mono- or poly-synths.
expressive 11-band Vocoder, allowing any combination of internal or external parts to be carrier and/or modulator
Quick Pattern-based system, stores 16 songs, where each song has 8 Parts (as wells as 4 Fills and 4 Variations) that assign programs and pattern motifs across to the 7 tracks. Mix and match for quick variety.
2 assignable FX busses: apply any track to either effect, including choruses, flangers, reverbs, and delays. Mix and match for wild ambiances.
Tons of sounds: 3 banks of 96 Rom, and 1 bank of 96 User Patches (for EACH Track-type), divided neatly into 6 categories 16 patches with nice direct-jumping between patches. Also has 1-touch Patch Randomizer for endless inspiration.
Pattern sequencer allows creating custom patterns by step or real-time recording, with random remixing of new sounds and motifs.”
I will admit, I am curious about this – more the synth than the sequencer/pattern part. I am most intrigued by the vocoder, as I have become a bit of a connoisseur of the instruments. The listing is local only for the Philadelphia area, so if I anyone from the city of brotherly love acquires this instrument, I would love to get a report.
