TOTAL CONTROL OVER YOUR GROOVE

DESIGN AND INTERACT WITH YOUR DRUMS
Each one of Spark's 480 instruments comes with 12 parameters allowing you to get ultimate sonic flexibility.

Each one of the encoders is automatable which means that the sequencer keeps track of all your movements; it adds new ways of giving your drum tracks that live feel.
REVOLUTIONARY SOUND ENGINE
