Arturia has announced the availability of Hollywood Essentials, the latest Expansion Pack for its Spark Creative Drum Machine and SparkLE hybrid hardware/software beat production centres.
Hollywood sound designers Larry Hopkins (The Following, Vampire Diaries, Revenge), Alan Howarth (Poltergeist, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Back To The Future II), and Mark Mangini (Die Hard, Star Trek, The Fifth Element) have pooled their creative resources to create Hollywood Essentials. As such, it features a library of 30 kits with 480 instruments and 960 patterns ranging from field recordings made in the likes of auto body shops and dentists to ethereal sci-fi soundscapes and action sequence percussion ensembles fit for any adventurous blockbusting Hollywood motion picture.
Hollywood Essentials requires SPARK Creative Drum Machine Version 1.5 (or higher), and can be purchased and downloaded directly from the Arturia online store for €29.00 / $29.00.
