By pushing the boundaries in guitar amp and effect tone creation for more than eight years, Positive Grid has been instrumental in helping inspire musicians to create and find their unique sound and voice. With their latest creation, Spark, a technologically enhanced amp and corresponding app, (https://www.positivegrid.com/spark), musicians now have access to new and innovative ways to play and practice.
Looking to create an amp that allows the player to be completely consumed in their own unique inspiration as well as to practice and learn any song they choose, the team at Positive Grid incorporated smart technology to deliver superior and highly creative experiences for musicians through real-time virtual practice tools and backing accompaniment. Designed for any electric guitar, bass or acoustic guitar, Spark allows you to enter an immersive world where the amp and mobile app becomes a big part of your creative process.
As a guitar amp, Spark features a deep, loud, and immersive design with two custom-designed speakers and a tuned bass-reflex port that are engineered to provide full-sounding basses and crystal-clear highs for every style of music. Working with the amp, the accompanying iOS/Android app learns the player’s style and feel, and then automatically generates bass and drum accompaniments that act like a virtual band.
The Spark app is driven by intelligent technology and offers real-time Smart Jam accompaniment, Auto Chord detection and intuitive practice features for players of all levels. Spark automatically analyzes and displays the chords in real time, allowing you to learn any song you desire.
Beyond the amp and effects tones that you get from Positive Grid’s BIAS software catalog, the Spark app gives you access to millions of songs on popular streaming platforms like YouTube, Spotify or Apple Music, or your phone’s music library. The app also responds to a variety of voice commands to stream a rock song or a blues backing track, ask for a virtual band to follow the user’s playing, and more.
