Arturia Spark Drum Machine
Combining the power of analog synthesis, physical modelling and samples, through the intuitive workflow of a hardware drum machine, Arturia Spark is a highly creative beat production centre.
Arturia Spark will save you time when looking for the right drum kit, will get you hooked by its amazing simplicity and will surprise you by its sonic possibilities.
Spark embeds vintage analog drum machines, sample based beatboxes and acoustic drum sets. Then Spark lets you break through their sonic boundaries thanks to a highly tweakable controller. With in-depth control over your sounds, advanced loop mode, XY touchpad with 8 real time effects, Spark will allow you to create unique beat experiments.
Spark's sonic power is nothing but huge, embedding three distinctive drum engines : analog synthesis, sampling and physical modelling. With access to in-depth parameters and the potential to automate all of them, every instrument is totally customizable, making beat creation more powerful and fun than browsing Gigs of samples.
Incorporating a 64-step sequencer and 8 velocity sensitive touch pads into a sturdy beat station, Spark is your weapon of choice to create grooves whether you are working in the studio or performing on stage.
Arturia Spark includes Vintage drum machines: Analog recreations in the spirit of the TR-808, TR-909, Simmons SDS-V, and Eprom based LinnDrum, Drumtraks, DMX, and more. Electronic kits covering the most popular modern music styles : Dub, House, Techno, Hip Hop, RnB... as well as experimental fields thanks to the physical modelling engine. Acoustic drumkits subtly mixing physical modelling and samples for high audio realism.
Spark ships with a MIDI Control Center application allowing you to easily control any third-party software or hardware. This application includes a template specifically designed for Ableton Live, making set-up and jam on Live a breathe.
