Arturia has announced the release of a like-for-like emulation of the 2022 MiniFreak hybrid polysynth.

Previously only available for owners of the hardware instrument, the MiniFreak V delivers the same hybrid sound, flexible modulation, and DAW-optimized workflow in a standalone virtual instrument plugin.

Striking the perfect balance between analog & digital, order & chaos, beauty & beast, MiniFreak V is a virtual instrument fusing digital sound engines with modeled analog filters, spontaneous modulation, playful sequencing, and rich stereo FX like nothing before it.

Discover endless sonic sweet spots, from the curious to the graceful to the ultra-fat, courtesy of MiniFreak V’s experimental architecture and spontaneous workflow.
