Spark

Spark is a highly creative drum machine combining the intuitive hands on control of hardware with the power and integration of software (stand-alone and plug-ins).

By using analog synthesis and physical modelling as well as samples, Spark's sound engine opens a new realm of possibilities in drum design. Subtle fine tuning or dramatic transformations are available instantly at your fingertips, making Spark a flexible and intuitive instrument.

Spark not only integrates seamlessly into any studio configuration, it is also perfect for live performance, thanks to uniquely designed controls such as the FX Pad with filtering and slicing modes, or the advanced Looper.

Loaded with thirty different kits offering emulation of famous drum machines, virtual acoustic drum sets and innovative sounding beat-boxes, Spark may become your weapon of choice to take your music further.
