Team of Three
Three powerful synthesis engines are incorporated in the Arturia Sparkle. Use the physical modelling function to generate accurate sounds of the required instrument. Let the audience drift into nostalgia by playing the tune of traditional synthesisers with the help of the virtual analog function. Finally, there is the sample playback function. It lets you play a particular rhythm you find the catchiest, on the loudspeaker again and again. This feature becomes very useful when you need to play a special beat that the audience appreciate and wish to enjoy again.
There are in total eight back-lit drum pads that imitate accurate sound of various drum equipment. They are velocity sensitive, so it is up to you to decide how the loud or low the beat will sound. Strike your finger with force for a clear tapping sound or press gently for a mellow tone with warm overtones. The LED lighting help you spot the right key when performing in a dim lit stage.
One major aspect makes the Arturia Sparkle shine like a star in the abundance of music FX. You can create rhythms with the drum pads, but if you want something more that will help you create your own unique beats unique, the provided FX pads are the answer. These FX pads feature 8 filter modes and 7 slicer modes that let you add various effects to your created beats. You can highlight the treble in the beat or introduce a powerful bass by the pressing the FX pads located above the drum pads. Put on a show to remember with the impressive Arturia Sparkle.

They are positioned ergonomically at the right-hand side above the XY pads. Therefore, just play the beat, choose the preferred FX and glide your hand to the upper area and fine tune the sound with the rotary encoders.
