SparkLE is a new hybrid drum instrument from Arturia that allows the construction of high quality beats with hardware, sound engine, workflow and creative tools featured in the Spark Engine software
The SparkLE takes elements from sample-based beatboxes, acoustic drum sets and analog drum machines and combines them with a modern beat station with a powerful synthesis and expressive control. Spark invites you to dive deep into the synthesis o drums, tweaking knobs and interacting with your sound allows for fun beat creation.
Spark engine contains sample playback and layer and adds avirtual analog engine based n the TAE analog modeling technology. Physical Modeling engine with a vast sound library that is constantly expanding gives a professional sound and allows youto cover a variety of genres and styles. All this comes with a studio and mixer page that allows total control over the final mix.
A wide range of excellent quality and unique effects allows you to create super basses, tight snares and wildly processed samples andsynths. Along with the Spark Engine's endless array of sonic possibilities, the Pattern view page shows a detailed view of your current beat and automation channels. You can go in with surgical precision using pencil and line tools to create or edit automation for each instrument, parameter, and effect.
