Synth + Pedal Sound Design Tutorial - Arturia MicroFreak and Zoom MS-70CDR

Published on Dec 19, 2019 Waveformer

"In this tutorial, I create a dreamy pad sound using a very basic patch on the Arturia MicroFreak and a phaser, delay and reverb from the Zoom MS-70CDR effects pedal.

This technique is by no means exclusive to the MicroFreak synth and the MS-70 pedal, and should work with almost any synth. The Zoom MS-70CDR pedal is perhaps the cheapest way of getting multiple good effects in one pedal, but there are lots of other options.

Please let me know in the comments if you create something similar using other equipment. I would love to hear about it.

The Zoom MS-70CDR patch is included below. To load the patch into the MS-70, connect your MS-70 to your computer using a USB cable, go to, right-click an available patch slot, select "Import Patch from text", and paste in this text.


The MicroFreak patch "DreamyPadWF" can be downloaded from the Files section of the Arturia MicroFreak facebook group.

The audio is recorded on a Korg KP2S and normalized in Audacity. Video is recorded on iPhoneX. Audio and video is synchronized in DaVinci Resolve 15.
