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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I've been using Spark throughout all my tracks this summer. My recent tracks "the drug" and "22.22" feature Spark heavily. I love the how is adds an authentic dimension to my beats but all very simply.Yousef

Arturia Spark 2 is a very nice software. I am always on the lookout for new tools as this way I constantly keep my production fresh. I need new gadgets to fiddle with, them and test what I can do with, as this way I get inspiration for producing my own stuff. And I got that with this little monster. I did use Spark 2 in studio to create some drum sounds in my recent tracks and I will continue to use it for some time. I like the quality of samples and that it's really user friendly. This is a useful product.Umek

I love the easy and quick ways to get results using Spark2 . The possibility to build up your own kit mixed with your own samples is very cool . My favorites to go for are the vintage drum machines in Spark2. They have the analogue sound and not one hit are totally the same , that way you don't get the ugly " machine gun " effect! Really usefull!Trentem?ller

Spark 2 has completely changed the way I approach drum handling in a live situation. The option to jump from pattern to pattern without waiting for the measure to complete its course means total freedom to drop in some unexpected flourishes or change style in the blink of an eye. The synth engine is tight, and its sample layering features let you sculpt your drums to perfection. Onboard controllers let you go really crazy , and the touchpad's multi functions can really throw a crowd off balance. All this, and it?s so easy to use! I wasn't reaching for the manual until days later and I already had most of a live set ready to go.Simon Carter

The layout of spark 2 is so intuitive and allows for instant creative control. The pads react like playing an acoustic instrument. Your beats will immediatly have a new level of depth the first time you get your hands on Spark2.Isaac Carpenter
