Comments about Arturia Spark:

Coming from a background of analog drum machines as well as the digital drum machines from the 90's made this an easy purchase. It has all the vintage drum machine sounds you would need and more. Easy to use and powerful. This drum production tool really helps me create in a new way not to mention I fly through the beat making process. Expect to see great things from this product. Only complaint is Arturia's customer service is very frustrating.
