Arturia MiniFreak Synthesizer In-Depth Review

In his latest loopop video, host Ziv Eliraz takes an in-depth look at the new Arturia MiniFreak synthesizer.


The Arturia MiniFreak is a new hybrid polyphonic synthesizer that features 6 voices, 2 sound engines, a 37-note slim keyboard, built-in stereo FX, and numerous creative modulation and sequencing features.


As ever, Eliraz shares a comprehensive look at the synth, including comparing it to the original microFreak and close to an hour of audio demos.
