I note Thomann are reporting "more than 2000" of these sold up to 09 Sep. Shows there's a big market for affordable experimental synths at the right price.
Really impressed by Arturia at the moment.

I've been using them as either a split keyboard with different patches or the same patch played over both. I've also merged the MIDI outputs and used the MEGAFreak as a PolyAT controller.

MicroFreak Saga Update: Received 2nd unit, it's perfect. No loose knobs, no knob jitter, no phantom edits.

Here's to many hours of solid freaking!

My very first MicroFreak recording:

Used the A/B sequences while tweaking, then played an 2-op FM tone over it. Some breakbeats, delay and distortion and a big compressor. Nice job. Real nice.

Hi guys, is the MF output mono or stereo? Do I need a splitter to plug it to two inputs of my soundcard? I'm trying to save on the number of slots of my 18i20.

Manual says: The output of the MicroFreak is monaural. Connecting stereo headphones will merely provide the identical sound on the left and right sides (i.e., mono).

I'm confused. I thought the MF had stereo effects?

100% mono. No advantage to the "stereo" headphone jack - both channels are an identical split.

No effects onboard. A couple oscillators include a single knob chorus parameter, but it's a mono chorus at the oscillator stage, into a single mono filter.

Thank you so much. I can save a slot on my interface, great 👌🏻
