Product Description

Arturia Spark is arguably the most powerful and creative drum solution available today. It takes the best elements from analog drum machines, sampled based beatboxes and acoustic drum sets. Then the Arturia Spark combines them in a modern beat station offering powerful synthesis and expressive control.

Where MPC-styled drum machines will have you browsing and playing with endless libraries of samples, the Arturia Spark invites you to dive deep into the synthesis of drums. Tweaking knobs and interacting with your sound finally brings the fun back to beat creation. As a combination of Hardware and Software, Spark offers the benefits of both worlds: a great user experience and a great sound totally integrated into your studio. You will be surprised by how simple it is to get started, have fun and spark your creativity!

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Do not compare to Maschine"
Overall: The majority of reviews I read before buying this kept comparing this to Maschine. They are 2 different beasts. Having owned the Maschine and now Spark, Spark is exactly what I wanted. Maschine is more of a workstation where as the Spark is quite simply a drum machine. I love the sequencer and the ability to plug any drum sample (included with the software or your own) onto the pad and start playing away. This has a very fast learning curve and I was up and programming beats in no time. If you want something to sequence drums and don't want to pay over $1000 for a Jomox, Machinedrum or the like this is a great product!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Research before you buy"
Sound: Not bad, and definetly not the best Feature: It will NOT record midi when used as a VST, I am able to record all of my VSTs as midi in Cubase but not with Spark, why it will not do this, it is beyond me!!, in order to record audio, it must be routed withing the software or if you have an audio card going into an external recording device. Ease of Use: Software is buggy, trying to figue how to route audio into the Cubase and Live has proven to be a pain, works, but not as advertised. again, it will NOT record midi, unless there is some update for the software, it is useless as a midi VST pluggin, if there is someone out there that knows how to record midi from this into Cubase 5, I welcome the info. Quality: Pads feel good, but sequencer buttons arrived popped out, I had to push them into position, they dont have the same height. works BUT ... Value: I wished I had the option to return it. Manufacturer Support: Dont know yet, I wish I dont have to find out. The Wow Factor: Do not want it. Overall: Make sure you visit the Spark community forum, then you will see the many problems people are having. Zzounds will not accept returns on this, I would be willing to pay to return it.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
