Spark is getting a new look, new feel and a number of new features that make it the premier sound sculpting and live performance drum machine on the market.
We have updated the look and feel of Spark to allow for faster workflow, and created a layout that will allow Spark to grow well into the future. New tabbed pages give a cleaner look, more screen space and fast access to features you need the most.
Modular VA drum synth
Spark has always been built on a fully modular Virtual Analog sound engine but only developers had access to this until now. You can add and subtract modules, create your own patch routings, and assign up to 6 macro controls for immediate control. The modular engine that you now have full access to makes Spark the ultimate in drum synthesizers.
REX file playback
We have added an advanced REX file player into Spark. You can still import REX files and split them across your pads but what if you like the REX loop and want it to play back on a single pad? Now you can open or drag-and-drop your favorite REX file to pad and have it play in sync. With REX file playback, Spark 2 opens up a world of live loop playback and DJing.
The Song mode has been updated to allow for song segments to be configured and then played back at the touch of a button. Now you can create song sections that will play from one pattern to another and then recall these sections, via the step buttons on your Spark or SparkLE controller.
50 New kits
Spark 2.0 adds 50 new kits (that is 800 new instruments) that span many musical genres. Trap, Hiphop, Tech House, Nu Disco, etc. These new kits come with 32 patterns that can be used by themselves or used as the basis for you to make your own beats.
