Thanks for the kind words, Robot.
will Spark be able to "host" the Lab? Would love to be able to use Spark as a stand alone product and sequence the Lab with it....
Just to be clear, Spark is not a stand-alone drum machine.
It is a hybrid system, just like the Analog Experience series.
It is a the combination of a hardware USB/MIDI controller and a sofware instrument.
The included Spark software library comes preloaded with 480 drum instruments, combining Analog Synthesis, Physical Modelling and multi-layered Sampling. It also includes an Analog Modelled Synth Bass instrument.
As a drum machine, Spark software also features a dedicated pattern-based sequencer (each Project can store 64 patterns, up to 64 steps each), but in the first version, this sequencer can only play the Spark instruments.
