Arturia Spark LE Hybrid Drum Machine
The Arturia Spark LE Hybrid Drum Machine combines the power of analog synthesis, physical modeling and samples with the intuitive workflow of a portable hardware drum machine to provide you a highly creative beat production center. With 8 real time effects, Spark will allow you to create unique beat experiments and constantly feed your creativity with innovative ideas.
The Arturia Spark LE Hybrid Drum Machine is an innovative hybrid instrument from Arturia that will take your beat creation to new levels. By combining the amazing sounds, workflow and creative tools of the Spark 2 software with the high-quality SparkLE controller, Arturia has created the ultimate beat-creating powerhouse.
Beats The Competition
The Arturia SparkLE puts the power of the fully-featured Spark 2 Engine software into a new, ultra-compact package. It may be small, but the Arturia SparkLE hardware gives you direct access to all of the features you need when making patterns, writing automation and performing live. A neoprene bag is included, perfect for taking your beats to the streets. The construction is very solid, which gives the Arturia SparkLE that real ‘musical instrument feel’ that is lacking in so many other controllers.
Hardware Shouldn’t Be Hard
The Arturia SparkLE gives you the classic ‘TR-style’ workflow via the step sequencer buttons and lets you bang out grooves in real time using the 8 velocity- and pressure-sensitive backlit pads. Create stunning live performances with the advanced Looper and beat slicer functions. Quickly load projects, kits and instruments using the jog dial encoder.
A Sensible Machine
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. Tune mode lets you play your sounds chromatically across the 16 buttons or the 8 pads. This allows you to have your kick drum follow the bass root note for deep lows, play a synth bass/lead sound or transform percussion sounds into pitched instruments.
So Much Control
The Arturia SparkLE hardware and the Spark software make up a sophisticated beat creation environment that gives you a hands-on, inspiring and unique way to create patterns, sounds and live performances. It’s simple to use, without sacrificing the deep editing and tweaking that you need to polish your tracks to perfection.
