Getting very quick hands, very simple and intuitive basic operation everything in the manual is very well explained!

very clean and crisp sound effect of a gogo I did not use too the original sounds at first because I just found them very clear! battery levels I've ever used a drum machine with as much sin that emulates both box that sounds real! but finally c when pushing a can have later in the edition of sounds (internal or import) and its effect becomes very interresting c the spark that releases all its power and frankly it serious potato! I thought up may not be able to make wobble bass with this machine we call "creative DRUM machine" made in I use it rained and rained I realize that there really is a lot of possibility and diversity at both levels of the sounds of use of spark course must triturated every knob (for those who love :) !!! I did dub / dubstep coupled with a emx my and my b virus while its in sync via Abelton! and works nikel!

How long have you use it?
since its release

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I think NI machine sounds only concurant me and frankly not interested in it!

What thing do you like most?
the made that there is no limit in the edition and creation with the spark!
the seriousness of arturia in product and service c!
the controller (even if it lacks the wooden sides;)
sounds and effect!
in short the spark!

the least?
still missing some instrument or fx various well that I would see in it like: trumpet guitar ... but I trusted has arturia who knows we proposed varied pack !!!

if it were to do again I remake the same choice and I would even can be two !!!! :) dropoff Window
