SPARK Vintage brings 30 legendary drum machines to the musician.

Intuitive and powerful, this software is much more than your typical sample player. By mixing high quality samples and virtual analog synthesis (based on TAE®), Spark Vintage manages to capture the unique soul of these instruments.

From the classic percussion sounds of the Roland CR-78 and Korg Mini Pops 7 to the heavy punch of the TR-series, all the top producers’ boutique models are available in one single easy-to-use interface.

Add to this the lightning-fast workflow, in-depth tweaking possibilities, and live features of Spark, and you get a true must have for any demanding beat maker.

Artists speak about Spark VDM

Spark is the perfect drum machine. After countless hours using software and hardware drum machines, Spark has become my go to weapon. It combines the ease of software with the feel of an analog drum machine. The sounds are amazing and features like the X ,Y pad and the loop function help to write ideas that i couldn’t have come up with any other way.

A unique and powerful interface

Spark Vintage offers a powerful interface to easily program and get the most out of your classic drum machines. Inspired by the original TR-series drum machines, Spark Vintage features a 16 step sequencer that makes programming tracks a breeze. Pattern length is expandable to 32, 48 and 64 steps. If you want to capture your beats with their original timing and velocity, you can also map your favorite MIDI keyboard to the 8 drum pads.

The XY Pad offers real-time filtering and slicing, to quickly generate mind-blowing breaks features 3 types of Filters (Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass), Repeat, Repeat Mix, Bit Crusher, Reverse, Tape, Strobe and Pan.
