We are glad to introduce 4 totally new kits for Spark.

The Syndrum kits deliver all the warmth and punch of the hottest analog circuits by exploiting the power of the TAE® modules.
Combined with the tweaking possibilities of Spark's controller, these kits will bring extreme flexibility to your beat sessions and will make your tracks stand out!
  • 1. PHATWERK: Phatwerk is a huge sounding kit built upon the structure of a modular drum synthesizer.
    Every parameter from waveshape to noise and filter sweep is accessible to help you shape fat bass drums, punchy snares, smooth hi hats...
    To make it even more complete for your sequencing needs, the Phatwerk also integrates 5 different melodic synthesizers which are fully tweakable.
  • 2. MICROMATIX : Micromatix is a minimal sounding beatbox of soviet inspiration that fits perfectly the Electro, Minimal, IDM and Nu-disco genres.
    Crispy and dirty percussions are blended with laser toms and synths, bringing a superb retrofuturistic feel.
    If you are looking for raw analog drums and sci-fi effects, this unit will bring you plenty of fun!
  • 3. PULSATOR : Pulsator is a sophisticated hybrid drum machine delivering in-your-face dynamics.
    It uses sampled pulse waves to generate acoustic-styled attacks, and processes them through virtual analog modules to beef the signal up. Its sharp attacks, solid low end, and warm presence will nicely cut through the mix of any modern Hip Hop or Electro track.
  • 4. DIRTY-909 : Our beloved TR-909 analog emulation just went under the knife of a crazy scientist...
    The result of his heavy bend : a way more agressive tone, ultra-heavy audio pressure and raspy tonal possibilities.
    Be warned, the Dirty-909 is not for the faint-hearted!

The DDM-120 pays tribute to the digital series of Korg drum machines, giving you access to the lo-fi 8 bit sounds of the DDM-110 and DDM-220.

Classic Drum Machines Vol.1

Our first Spark expansion pack, « Classic Drum Machines Vol .1», pays tribute to two gemstones of the electro house music scene : the Roland TR-606 and 707.*

The DR-707 emulates one of the most beloved grooveboxes in Electro-House by embedding the original Roland Eprom sounds. By adding a touch of TAE® with the Bodeshift noises and Karplus overtones, we are delivering state-of-the-art software emulation that will satisfy the most demanding beat-makers.

Whether you are into electro pop music or nu-disco, be sure to spark up your mix with these two additional classic drum machines.
