Fun and Easy to use

don't be fooled by the haters below that label it "buggy" and poor sounding. If you've ever heard some of Arturia's Sounds then you're sold. Startlingly Vibrant Sounds. Breathtaking..... So easy to use a caveman could do it... assuming he was alive in this day and age and had basic computer skills as well as a capable computer...oh yeah.. If you ain't using a real sub, you're missing out.....bigtime!

Extremely good value

For the price, this can't be beat. Very sturdy construction and well laid out controller. As for the software, some very good sounds and easily customizable. The whole package is very intuitive and sounds great.

Spark LE

I love the original spark, but for my needs, the Spark LE is much more convienient. Having the step sequencer pads next to the drum pads makes for a quick and efficient work flow, Sketching out song ideas is much easier and more organic than ever. Also, it' small size fits perfectly into my studio setup.. Great software, great hardware.

Fun

The 2.0 and sparkLe controller are great idea starters. Whether you have a mobile setup or Studio, this is a great tool to have. The vintage drum machine sounds are spot on, and spark inspiration.
