Hi Chris – separate point so, Im putting in a new reply.Question:
So, if Spark is not a direct 808/909/etc emulation, why have they stated this all over their marketing?Answer:
Well, for me, Im not bothered about these claims. The claims are obviously led by marketing and there are plenty of audio samples on their site to demonstrate the accuracy of these claims to potential buyers. If the listener is bothered, they have the option to buy something like Drumazon (as you point out).
But this is really missing the point….
Spark features (by far!) the best sounding analogue emulation on the market.. Worst case and you might find another emulator out there that sounds pretty much as good.
However, you now throw in the Physical Modelling engine and any potential competitors are left lagging.
You now throw in the Sample engine with its unique and complex sample synthesis; now the competition just gets embarrassing!! (in Spark’s favour, obviously..)
If you pick up Spark looking for ANOTHER 808/909 emulator (yawn
) you WILL be disappointed. That’s not to say that you could not use Spark for something 909-esque, taking the original sound into completely new territories, especially if compliment the kits with a few samples for sounds that are so readily identifiable (clap / rim).
If you pick up Spark as a multi-engine, drum synthesiser, you will go to bed every night with a smile on your face
