This is a stand-alone product. Spark Dubstep IS NOT an expansion pack for Spark (an expansion pack will be released soon) Spark Dubstep is a complete software package that gives you access to Sparks intuitive, organic, features and work flow using the Dubstep Library
SPARK DubStep's powerful, user-friendly interface makes beat- and bass pattern-creation easy, especially when using the step sequencer situated at the top of the default centre panel. Hardware drum machine enthusiasts will feel right at home here. Thanks to advanced looping modes cleverly combined with the XY pad's real-time slicing and filtering controls, users will be producing breaks in no time at all.
Each of the 480 instruments comes complete with 12 sound-sculpting parameters to promptly put your own stamp on the resultant sound: modify the noise colour of hi-hats; clip basses using various analogue filters; adjust the LFO rate and depth of a wobble bass, etc.
SPARK DubStep's integrated 16-channel mixer offers 14 high-quality effects and maps each instrument's stereo output to the host DAW when seamlessly running as a plug-in (RTAS, AU, VST3) with real- time automation available on all parameters. It's possible to export patterns as .wav or MIDI files to the DAW — simply drag-and-drop any pattern from the currently open kit to have it automatically rendered in the chosen format.
Performers wishing to use SPARK DubStep as a standalone instrument independently from a software sequencer and play it from their favourite MIDI keyboard- or drumpad-based controller are perfectly free to do so. Either way, all onscreen key knobs and pads are easily assignable via MIDI. MAIN FEATURES:
