said I had no space or need for a new synth... Except that one time when I said I really needed to find space for that new Arturia MicroFreak I wanted to buy. And after many days of anxiety, depression, uncertainty, procrastination and other first world problems, I finally found a place for it, took the plunge and bought it. So far, no buyers remorse. For less than 300 bucks this thing is fucking SICK. Come see my story for a couple snippets and sounds I made driving it with the Clarett 4pre USB preamps. Gnaaaarly bass. I think it's time for a new Zardonic album ????more
in sund and funcrionality the microfreak is a law unto itself. It has a really great sound. Arturia's steiner parker filter really mates well with digital oscillators & wavetables. All that metallic klang that turns me off on the brutes makes sense here. That said I couldn't bond with the touch plates. I'm just not buchla enough I guess.... the deeper programming is a bit cumbersome too. I already have enough trouble getting my microvolt to obey me using the internal sequencer. A really neat synth, but I could've used a rack version if they weren't giving me a legit keybed and knob per function. My space is getting limited. Think I'll get a modal Argon8M.
