SparkLE is the newest hybrid instrument from Arturia that will take your beat creation to new levels. By combining the amazing sounds, work flow and creative tools of the Spark Engine software, with the high quality SparkLE controller, Arturia has created the ultimate beat creating powerhouse.
A powerful beat making tool with functionality and sound quality way beyond it’s low price point.
For the full review and an in depth look at SparkLE's features.
The Spark LE brings together all the most important aspects of a drum machine into one package.
Arturia have provided hands on control with velocity sensitive pads, familiar TR Style' sequencing and an X-Y pad for live effects manipulation. Going even further Arturia's looper function lets skip to sections of a pattern on the fly, rearrange and jam on your beats live.
Arturia's own True Analogue Emulation (TAE) technology gives you all the sounds of classic drum machines & synth tones from the likes of Oberheim, Yamaha and Roland. For brand new sounds there is also phenomenal Physical Modelling Technology, which emulates the physical properties of acoustic instruments but can be stretched beyond and taken to new heights. Finally sampling technology rounds out your palette, providing staple drum machines and acoustic instruments along with inspirational sound effects and stabs.
Of course Arturia have vast experience of software integration with their range of plugins and hardware controllers. So Spark LE can be run as a plugin within the majority of host platforms, used as a MIDI Controller and you can Import/Export Wavs/Aiffs/Rex2/MIDI files.
Transform your beats with the touch sensitive FX pad that features 8 filter modes (including our Oberheim SEM filter) and 7 different Slicer modes. Write automation and control your sounds in real-time with the 3 assignable encoders and the 3 Instrument modes on the XY pad. Our TUNE mode allows you to choose an instrument and then play chromatic pitches across the 16 buttons or the 8 pads (depending on your preference settings). This allows you to have your kick drum follow the bass root note for deep lows, play a synth bass/lead sound or transform a percussion sound into a pitched instrument.
A wide range of excellent quality and unique effects allows you to create super basses, tight snares and wildly processed samples and synths. 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. Add to this a Song mode that allows you to chain your patterns to create full arrangements ready for mix down. The Spark Engine has a 1:1 interface with your hardware that allows you to see what is going on and gives you an excellent user interface for those times when you aren’t using your hardware to control the software (yes, some other systems won’t work without the hardware attached). In essence, SparkLE is a fun, straight forward and most importantly, musical experience that will inspire you every time you use it.
SparkLE gives you access to analog recreations of the TR-808, TR-909, Simmons SDS-V, as well as EPROM based LinnDrum, Drumtraks, DMX, and more.* Other original analog instruments are also available, including basses leads and effects created by our international team of award-winning sound designers.
