Arturia has given its beat creation software a new look, new feel, and a full set of new features. New tabbed pages provide a cleaner look, more screen real estate, and faster access to the most needed features: an all-new Mixer window (with level, pan, and insert effects and sends — to 14 unique effects), expanded Pattern edit screen, and an enhanced Library page for better data management.
Spark 2 also adds 50 new kits — including 800 new instruments — that span musical genres including modern electronic music styles like trap, hip-hop, tech house, and nu disco, as well as acoustic drum kits spanning modern rock, funk, R ’n’ B, pop, vintage rock, and latin percussion.
Vintage drum machine enthusiasts will appreciate emulations of Roland’s TR-808, TR-909, TR-707, TR-606, and CR-78; LinnDrum, Linn 9000; Oberheim DMX; E-mu Drumulator; Sequential Circuits Drumtraks; Yamaha RX5; and Simmons SDS-V. All kits come complete with 32 patterns that can be used by themselves or form the basis of user-programmed beats.
As a 32- and 64-bit compatible virtual instrument for Mac, Spark 2 can be run standalone or used as a plug-in with popular host DAWs (supporting 16 audio outputs that can be routed and assigned within the host); AIFF, WAV, REX2, and MIDI files can all be imported with drag and drop export of WAV format patterns and MIDI sequence formats into DAWs; and all parameters on SPARK 2’s MAIN screen are MIDI-assignable for control via any external MIDI device.
