Spontaneous algorithmic synthesizer
MiniFreak is a polyphonic hybrid keyboard that unites dual digital sound engines with analog filters, playful modulation, instinctive sequencing, and rich stereo effects for sounds that are immediately curious, beautiful, and chaotic in equal measure.
Explore the unconventional
In the rift where digital meets analog, engine meets engine, hardware meets software, expression meets impulse, and reality meets boundless imagination, dwells MiniFreak.
Discover endless sweet spots between sonic universes and tear up the rulebook with an addictive hybrid synthesizer that invites you to play without consequences.
Two engines, many voices
A dynamic selection of sounds that contrast, collide, and conspire to create.
Classic sinewave to fearsome supersaw bass, pizzicato-plucked strings to dense stacked chords. MiniFreak’s engines pack a punch - or 22, to be precise. From our own algorithms to unique modes designed by modular synth wizards, here’s what you’ve got to play with:
Double the engines,double the fun
2 engines, 6 voices, 22 oscillator modes.
From Virtual Analog to FM, Additive to Ring Mod, collide contrasting modes for compound polyphonic timbres, feed Engine 1’s sound into Engine 2 for stacked sonic interplay, and process external audio through its architecture to unleash any sound’s wild side. Whether it’s mix-filling bass, textural percussion, or center-stage synth lead, you can mold MiniFreak’s many voices into whatever shape you desire.

A simple analog-style pad evolves into a stuttering rhythmic motif, introducing modulation, filter sweeps, and FX.
Immediate modulation means nothing is off-limits.
With twin LFOs, polyphonic cycling envelopes, and customizable LFO shapes, modulate your sound engines, filters, effects - even your modulation sources themselves. Anything goes with this simple-but-powerful modulation matrix, putting any flavor of animated, evolving, or untamed sonic alteration at your disposal in seconds.
Savor vivid stereo textures with built-in effects.
Embellish your dual-engine sounds with beautifully hypnotic chorus, brutal distortion, immersive borderline-3D atmosphere, and beyond. MiniFreak is armed with stereo outputs and 3 FX slots, each with 10 curated FX algorithms to choose from, ensuring that every patch is mix-ready and as wide as you need it to be.
- Bit Crusher
- 3-Band EQ
- Peak EQ
- Multi Comp
Morph between particle noise, white noise, and a metallic noise that’s reminiscent of a synth cymbal. Great for gritty industrial-sounding percussion.
Saw, square, sine, or triangle waves, detuned with precision, oozing with fatness and texture that’s perfect for trance leads and dreamy pads.
Control the levels of 32 sinewaves for additive synthesis made easy, creating harmonically rich timbres that can be quickly shaped.
A mode using physical modeling to recreate the vibrations and resonance of a string, from soft plucks to steel-string buzz.
A mode emulating two basic waveforms: square, containing only odd harmonics, and sawtooth, containing both odd and even. Two distinct, essential timbres.
Inject any audio signal into MiniFreak to process with Engine 2, the analog filters, and the FX engines.
No less than 14 modeled filters packed into an easy-to-use Engine mode, from a 36dB LP filter to 3 notch filter modes.
Slice and scoop out entire frequencies with decisive precision, with LP, BP, HP, and notch modes and a flexible Spread control.
Mimic real acoustic behavior using tuned feedback delay for quirky, metallic, sci-fi-esque resonance. Great for creating SFX or unique almost-acoustic sounds.
From 2 to 12 poles, dial in static phase effects on certain frequencies for creating great formant textures and unexpected harmonics.
Fold, decimate, and crush the bit content of your sound. From razor-sharp to pixelated, static fuzz to plucky video game chirp, choose your degree of destruction.
Combining frequency and ring modulation, create unique sonic interplay between both engines, altering waveforms, phase, and a blend of dry and ring-modulated signal.
Like its smaller sibling, MiniFreak contains a number of open-source oscillator modes from Eurorack legends Mutable Instruments, enhanced with polyphony and ’Freak flexibility.
Beautiful, crunchy, unstoppable stereo sound awaits.
Augment, transform, and polish whatever combination of engines you’ve chosen with 3 stereo FX engines. From space-enhancers, to textural algorithms, to outright sonic destruction, these FX are ready to be tweaked & modulated to your heart’s content.
