Artists speak about iSpark

Having a lot of fun with iSpark jamming out ideas away from the studio. Very easy to get started with but you can go in deep with automation, love that you can hook the iPad up to the actual SparkLE hardware unit! Recommended.

I love this iSpark app! it lives up to Arturia's legacy of sonic goodness. iSpark gives me the opportunity to work on ideas while I'm in my hotel, airplane, anywhere and input my creations once i've returned to my evil laboratory.
