Arturia releases SPARK DubStep

Arturia has announced availability of SPARK DubStep, a powerful production and performance software suite dedicated to heavy-duty dubstep rhythm track construction.

Catering to the rhythmically distinctive needs of dubstep producers globally, SPARK DubStep features a comprehensive library of 30 kits / 480 instruments created in partnership with London-based pro audio loops and samples provider Sample Magic.

SPARK DubStep is a complete rhythm track construction kit, boasting 960 pre-programmed MIDI patterns of hard-hitting drums, virtual analogue synths, and filter-modulated mayhem.

SPARK DubStep's powerful, user-friendly interface makes beat- and bass pattern-creation easy, especially when using the step sequencer situated at the top of the default centre panel. Hardware drum machine enthusiasts will feel right at home here. Thanks to advanced looping modes cleverly combined with the XY pad's real-time slicing and filtering controls, users will be producing breaks in no time at all.

Each of the 480 instruments comes complete with 12 sound-sculpting parameters to promptly put your own stamp on the resultant sound: modify the noise colour of hi-hats; clip basses using various analogue filters; adjust the LFO rate and depth of a wobble bass, etc.

SPARK DubStep's integrated 16-channel mixer offers 14 high-quality effects and maps each instrument's stereo output to the host DAW when seamlessly running as a plug-in (RTAS, AU, VST3) with real- time automation available on all parameters. It's possible to export patterns as .wav or MIDI files to the DAW — simply drag-and-drop any pattern from the currently open kit to have it automatically rendered in the chosen format.

Performers wishing to use SPARK DubStep as a standalone instrument independently from a software sequencer and play it from their favourite MIDI keyboard- or drumpad-based controller are perfectly free to do so. Either way, all onscreen key knobs and pads are easily assignable via MIDI.

Pricing & Availability

SPARK DubStep can be purchased as a software download for €99.00 / $99.00 or boxed for €119.00 / $129.00 from Arturia's Online Shop.
