THIRTY LEGENDARY DRUM MACHINES

Spark Vintage features 30 legendary drum machines from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

All models have been carefully reproduced using two techniques : analog emulation (based on TAE®) for the analog circuits, and high resolution sampling of mint condition units for EPROM and PCM based drum machines.
Each kit comes with pre-programmed patterns ranging from the original ones, to the most contemporary rhythms.

If you want to get hold of the classic beats that shaped countless hit records, while keeping a modern edge, it doesn’t get any better than Spark Vintage Drum Machines.
