With a cutting-edge algorithmic design, Sparkverb breaks the boundaries of contemporary reverbs giving users modern and innovative controls that dramatically enhance usability, speed and creative freedom while delivering breathtaking sound quality and remarkable CPU efficiency.

Sophisticated Design - Enormous sonic range, fast and efficient workflow

Easily traverse everything from natural sounding spaces to infinite, shimmering ambiences with stunning depth and fidelity throughout the entire spectrum. This type of range typically implies a dense and complex interface - not in Sparkverb. Usability and workflow were pivotal considerations in development.

A great deal of care was taken to allow a high degree of customization with the fewest controls possible, resulting in less time spent fidgeting and more time being productive.

At the core of Sparkverb's interface is a frequency-based spectrum editor; use it to sculpt and refine your sound with phenomenal speed and control. Adjust decay globally and across multiple bands with hi/lo multipliers and crossovers directly on a single canvas. It's an entirely new way to work with reverb.

All other controls are clearly arranged and labelled, including A/B comparison, making fine-tuning a painless process.

Dialing in a reverb, simple or complex, has never been this fast.

Explore – With Or Without Boundaries

Sparkverb shines in traditional mixing sessions but was designed to be an exceptionally flexible creative tool as well. Discover new spaces and explore the full range of sonic possibilities effortlessly with built in mutation and randomization controls.

These functions are made even more useful by parameter locks available on every control.

Experiment within prescribed boundaries such as a fixed mix amount or pitch modulation to find exciting variations that work for your specific need. Another innovative tool comes in the form of the Preset Voyager. At launch, Sparkverb creates a 2-dimensional array of all presets on your machine; simply toggle the Preset Voyager display and click-drag between preset nodes to freely interpolate new settings. Watch controls update in real time to see what's happening and create new presets to redefine the space - the possibilities are limitless.

Extensively Optimized For Extreme Performance.

Under Spark's elegant exterior lays a powerful and extensively optimized DSP engine. Built on UVI's Parametric FDN Engine, Sparkverb can be instanced near-limitlessly. The dramatic performance gives you unprecedented access to Sparkverb's high- fidelity sound throughout your sessions. Use it on as many tracks and busses as you need without worrying about CPU overload.

Additionally you'll find numerous features which help to make Sparkverb indispensable such as fully continuous parameters; freeze; multiple operation modes; variable densities; unique and decorrelated multi-channel operation; full automation control; advanced diffusion algorithms and tunable modulation for pitch accuracy regardless of scale. Add a generous helping of factory presets and you've got a versatile and powerful sonic tool suited for the most demanding studio environments.

Fast, Versatile, Stunning.

Whether you're working with small ensembles, massive orchestras, sound design or anything in-between, Sparkverb offers a unique experience and innovative feature set that helps you work faster, smarter and more creatively than ever before.

Let Sparkverb redefine the way you resound.

What is BreakTweaker?

BreakTweaker is the beat machine of the future. Powered by three distinct modules, the Sequencer, the Generator, and the MicroEdit Engine, it's a wildly creative rhythmic instrument that can be used with any DAW and MIDI controller. For instant gratification, get started with the diverse presets and content in the Factory Library, a showcase of BreakTweaker's breadth and sonic capabilities. When you want to get deeper, forge new sonic weaponry with BreakTweaker's paradise of tweaky controls and settings.

The Sequencer

Assemble pattern-based beats in the Sequencer, which features six tracks for layering your sounds. The Sequencer can store up to 24 different step patterns, launchable via MIDI for on-the-fly remixing. Design beats that evolve over time with BreakTweaker's advanced isorhythmic step sequencing, which makes it possible for each track to have a unique tempo and step length. Ever heard a 7/8 rhythm against a massive 4/4 breakbeat? You can here.

The Generator

Sculpt new drum sounds and textures with the Generator. This powerful drum synthesis module defines the sounds for each Sequencer track. The Generator supports morphing wavetable synthesis, one-shot sample loading, and hand-crafted noise tables, then is polished off with dual-stage distortions and vintage-modeled filters. Four LFOs with unique wavetable shapes, and four Envelopes allow vast modulation possibilities for almost every single Generator parameter. As a bonus, every Sequencer track supports up to three Generators for developing even deeper sonic complexity.

The MicroEdit Engine

Once you've perfected the ultimate set of drum sounds and sequenced your patterns, it's time for a whole new method of sound design. Enter the MicroEdit Engine. A "MicroEdit" is the division of a single step within your pattern into potentially thousands of slices. These slices can then be contoured and shaped to create harmonic, pitched, and rhythmic effects, resulting in new textures that add maximum ear candy to your ever-evolving beats. By pushing the limits of the brain's ability to perceive sound, the MicroEdit Engine blurs the line between rhythm and pitch, inspiring beats you've never heard before.

Experience the innovative full-throttle guitar tones of MESA/Boogie® on your computer
Plug into a MESA/Boogie® amp and it will change your ideas about tone and your playing forever. Seriously, it really will. From the moment you first plug into a MESA, you’ll experience new levels of responsiveness, feel, nuance, and sound and you’ll quickly understand why MESA has always referred to their amplifiers as "Instruments”… because they are!

After experiencing your guitar coupled with the effortless and empowering playability and a new freedom to express emotion through attack and sustain characteristics that seem to read your passion… for most, there is no going back to "an amp”.

It’s hard to put into words the feeling of reward you get when all the hours of practice are suddenly supported and embellished and your playing jumps to a whole new plateau. But it’s REALLY great, and as soon as you plug in, you get it. The instant attack morphs stylistically under your command, the layers or rich harmonics create dimension and the newfound, willing sustain grant you access to the next level in your own development as a player.

The MESA experience will leave a permanent mark on the musical part of your brain and you’ll find you’ re smiling… saying under your breath, "damn this sounds good.” It’s that sound you’ve heard in your head and searched for all your playing life and yet, never attained until now. That’s a Boogie®.

And now you can have the essence of Boogie on your laptop.
