ARTURIA SPARK - INTRODUCTION
I am just about to take a look at 480 instruments and 30 Kits from both vintage drum machines and acoustic kits, all in one drum solution, made of a software application and a dedicated hardware controller. It is the new Arturia Spark creative drum machine, announced at NAMM this year, which combines multi-layered drum samples from all the vintage greats and adds power with Arturia's TAE Analog Synthesis and physical modelling.

Check out this video featuring a live recording session with Myles Sanko! The equipment used includes a Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 interface, a pair of KRK RP6 monitors, a Blue Bluebird microphone, plus Pro Tools 9 with the Focusrite Midnight plugin suite, which provides the compression and EQ.
The Focusrite Saffire PRO 24 is a 16 in / 8 out, bus-powered FireWire audio interface, featuring two high quality Focusrite Mic Preamps. It forms the basis of a high quality, incredibly portable professional recording system, and we think you will agree that this recording sounds spot on!

Yo, dudes and dudettes!!! We at Absolute Music are, like, totally ‘stoked’ to have the new E-MU LONGboards in! No, they’re not the longboards that you may have heard of before, i.e. the ones with wheels that allow you to skate around town! These LONGboards are keyboard-type instruments with ‘gnarly’ sounds! Boss!
…and for those of you that haven’t just looked at the online ‘Surfin’ Slang Dictionary’, that basically just means that they are pretty awesome!

Line 6’s James Tyler Variax is the first truly advanced guitar technology of the 21st century that will excite your fingers, your ears and your imagination!
Sixty years ago, modern music was transformed by the advent of the electric guitar. This revolutionary instrument proved to be incredibly expressive and allowed players to connect to their music and their audiences in powerful ways. Over the decades, music and music-making has evolved but electric guitar design hasn’t changed that much… until the Line 6 Variax came along!
