    The SparkLE hardware and the Spark Engine 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 is simple to use and create on but without sacrificing the depth of editing and tweaking that you need to polish your tracks to perfection.

    Hardware shouldn't be hard
    SparkLE gives you that classic 'TR' style workflow by inputting your patterns from the step sequencer buttons or letting you choose to lay down your beats in real time using the 8 velocity and pressure sensitive backlit pads. The controller is perfect for live performance with advanced Looper and beat slicer functionality straight from the panel. The touch sensitive FX pad features 8 filter modes and 7 slicer functions for real-time beat mashing.

    The TUNE mode allows you to choose an instrument and then play chromatic pitches across the 16 buttons or the 8 pads (depending on your preference settings). This allows you to have your kick drum follow the bass root note for deep lows, play a synth bass/lead sound or transform a percussion sound into a pitched instrument.

    Spark 2 is an innovative drum production solution. Its cutting edge sound library, multiple synthesis engines and advanced sequencing functionalities will get you creative on your beatmaking tasks. Real-time performance tools and effects are here to explore new sonic territories, in the studio or on stage.

    New Layout
    Arturia have updated the look and feel of Spark 2 to allow for faster workflow, and created a layout that will allow Spark 2 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 2 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 2 the ultimate in drum synthesizers.

    REX file playback
    Arturia have added an advanced REX file player into Spark 2. 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 favourite 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.

    Song Mode
    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 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.

    MIDI Control Centre
    All knobs, buttons and the XY pad can be reassigned to the MIDI note or CC data of your choice. The flexibility of the mapping will allow you to use SparkLE in a number of new and exciting ways.
