Arturia announced two new products: Spark, a drum machine, and Analog Experience The Laboratory, a hybrid synth.
Spark offers 480 instruments/30 kits, including analog re-creations inspired by the TR-808, TR-909, Simmons SDS-V, and more. It has a 16-track mixer with nine effects, including compressor, reverb, bit crusher, EQ, chorus, and more. It has a 16-key, 64-step sequencer and eight velocity-sensitive pads. There are 30 knobs for sound control. Spark will work as a universal MIDI controller with third-party software.
Analog Experience The Laboratory is a professional-grade MIDI keyboard combined with
the powerful Analog Laboratory software. The 49-key keyboard controller is made for performance and maximum expression, with
velocity and aftertouch in addition to a set of knobs, faders, and sensitive pads. Full
connectivity on the back pannel includes breath-controller, MIDI in and out, as well as Pedal
Expression, Sustain, and Aux.
