Arturia has announced availability of Spark EDM, a software suite dedicated to EDM (electronic dance music) production, and EDM, an Expansion Pack forSpark and SparkLE.
Spark EDM comes with 30 kits — ranging from electro to dubstep, techno to tech house. 480 instruments are included, based on Arturia’s TAE® (True Analog Emulation) synthesis technology and sampling, each with 12 adjustable parameters. Furthermore, there are 960+ preprogrammed patterns for you to use or tweak, an integrated 16-track mixer with levels, pans, and sends that can all be automated. Finally there are 14 effects: bit crusher, chorus, delay, destroyer, distortion, flanger, limiter, multi-band compressor, multi-band EQ, phaser, plate reverb, reverb, space pan, and sub generator.
There are some features that will make live performance easier as well.
And thanks to advanced looping modes cleverly combined with the onscreen XY pad’s real-time slicing and filtering controls, users will be producing phenomenal EDM beats with the best of them in no time at all — perfect for live performance!
Speaking of live performance, all of SPARK EDM’s onscreen knobs and pads are easily MIDI-assignable, making them compatible with a variety of keyboard- and pad-based controllers.
The EDM Expansion Pack for Spark and SparkLE adds those same 30 EDM kits.
Spark EDM can be purchased as a software download for €99.00/$99.00 or boxed for €119.00/$129.00 from Arturia’s Online Shop.
The EDM Expansion Pack requires Spark Version 1.5 (or higher), and can be purchased as a software download for €29.00/$29.00.
