Easy to use,
a joy to explore

When you’re in the mood to create, you want nothing to stand in your way. We designed Spark 2 to encourage your inspiration, not hold it back.

To help you navigate the features and functions of Spark 2, the software features dedicated pages for specific functions. This approach is great for workflow, letting you focus on the matter at hand - whether it’s sequencing your pattern, adding effects, or editing instruments - so you features you’re not using right now don’t get in your way. Let’s have a quick look at the pages in Spark 2:

Main

Instantly familiar to drum machine lovers, the main page is a classic drum machine interface, great for when you want to quickly play around with ideas, or use Spark 2 for live performance.

Sequencer

For when you want to really focus on your drum sequences and patterns, you can easily add and remove steps, change time signatures, resolution, and more with 32 steps on-screen. It also lets you control up to 15 different automation parameters per instrument.

Song

The song mode lets you chain sequences together to create longer patterns with more depth and progression. Great for live use, as everything can be self-contained within Spark 2.

Studio

The studio page gives you deep access to effects and sound-shaping features within Spark 2, and apply a compressor, reverb, bit crusher, multiband EQ, chorus, delay, distortion, phaser, plate reverb, destroyer, flanger, space pan, limiter and sub generator.

Modular

For when you want to really explore the power of Spark 2, the modular page reveals just how deep the rabbit hole goes. Add and edit synth and sound modules to create sounds that are unique to you.

Mixer

Get your kit balanced just right with a simple but effective mixer page. Adjust the volumes across your instruments, send levels, pan, and more with dedicated controls.

Library

Want to import your own samples? Have a REX library that you want to dissect and rework? Find them here, load them into Spark 2, and have your wicked way with them.

Preferences

The brains behind all the power. The preferences page lets you control the basic and advanced settings that keep things running behind the scenes.

Expand
your horizons
