Music software and hardware developer Arturia have announced Spark - a highly creative software and hardware hybrid drum machine.

Spark combines the power of analog synthesis, physical modelling and samples, with the intuitive workflow of a hardware drum machine.

With 8 velocity and pressure sensitive pads, Spark offers a 16 key - 64 step sequencer alongside a touch sensitive FX Pad with note repeat.

Spark also features multi-layered sampling and analog-modeled drum machines including the classic TR-808 and TR-909, as well as electronic and acoustic drum kits.

Offering realtime automation on all parameters, assignable encoders and 9 high-quality effects, Spark is a creative and power drum machine.

Song mode and a 16-track mixer allow you to perform full sets and produce full tracks all within Spark software environment.

Spark is your weapon of choice to create unique grooves whether you are producing in the studio or performing on stage.

Spark also functions as a fully-fledged MIDI controller so it can be sued with any third-party software or within your DAW.
