Using advanced technology to help you get your rhythmic thoughts down on disc without getting distracted by figuring out the device and fooling around with the computerization of at all is actually possible. Arturia designed the Spark LE with you and music in mind first, then designing the technology around it and making it easy to take with you.
"Freedom" is the key word
Freedom is having naturally placed controls to create, tweak and recall your sounds easily, edit your work with simple software and move it wherever you want, including other software. If you already have a workflow in your process, Spark LE is there to fit in and make it even more comfortable for you as you incorporate the machine's intuitive layout and response as a vastly superior controller into the software you know and love, like ProTools, Logic, Digital Performer, Ableton and others.
In The Loop
Your right to freedom includes the ability to loop your patterns with full control, even in live performance, with a button or a knob, you can repeat, divide, move and shift your way into rhythms that are yours and yours alone without limitations. When using the Looper in conjunction with the XY pad, you have an astronomical number of ways to twist and tear up your beats in ways never before achievable.
Integrate Your life
Enjoy the freedom of importing and exporting your work by dragging-and-dropping right into your DAW or run it from inside as a plugin in VST, AU, RTAS and AAX. The Spark Engine supports 16 audio outputs that can be routed and assigned within your host, so the one rhythm in your DAW can give you up to 16 separate tracks you can work on along with the rest of your mix.
Mixer and FX
Feel free to work in the natural flow you're used to, allowing you to effortless access to the level, pan, insert effects and sends of your instruments. Each of these parameters can be automated in the PATTERN page or controlled via the assignable encoders on the SparkLE hardware. Through the mixer, you're also given individual control of over a dozen digital effects for each drum track, including Compressor, Reverb, Bit crusher, Multiband EQ, Chorus, Delay, Distortion, Phaser, Plate reverb, Destroyer, Flanger, Space pan, Limiter, Sub generator Analog chorus and vocal filter.
And what's a good mixer without automation? SparkLE and the Spark Engine allow you a number of ways to create and edit automation. You can use the assignable Encoders, the XY pad or the Pencil and Line tools in the PATTERN/AUTOMATION page. Like in your favorite DAW, instruments and effects can be automated with Spark and each track of the step sequencer allows for 15 different parameters to be automated per instrument, including the effects.
Freedom to Choose, Freedom to Grow
Spark comes with emulations of over a dozen vintage drum machines like those from Roland, Oberheim, Korg, Lynn and others, a vast library of electronic kits and acoustic drum kits.
Optiional expansion packs also give you freedom to add hundreds of instrument and kits to your Spark arsenal, along with almost a thousand additional patterns, plus do-it-yourself expansions packs that give you templates to add your own samples and mix your own effect recipes. Best of all, most of these packs are free. Now THAT's freedom worth fighting for!
