Arturia has released Version 1.6.1 of Spark, the latest software update to its Spark Creative Drum Machine and SparkLE Creative Drum Machine hybrid hardware/software beat production centres.
In version 1.6.1 Arturia has improved the functionality of both Spark Creative Drum Machine and SparkLE Creative Drum Machine as follows.
Firstly, SparkLE Creative Drum Machine owners benefit from an added accent button in the GUI and an added latch mode for the instrument FX Pad, which, when activated, assigns the P1 and P2 knobs to the instrument parameters (Volume/Pan, Cutoff Resonance, Aux1/Aux2), while pressing any of the three XY Instrument buttons turns off latch mode (returning the P1 and P2 knobs to their previous assignations).
Joint benefits also abound for Spark Creative Drum Machine and SparkLE Creative Drum Machine users, including improving the MIDI Clock output, together with several bug fixes.
The Spark Version 1.6.1 update can be downloaded directly for free from here.
Spark and SparkLE can be purchased from the Arturia online store or any dealer for €399.00 / $399.00 or €249.00 / $299.00, respectively.
