Learn about your upgrade options and what distinguishes Synfire Sparks from Express and how they compare to HN2 Advanced Edition and HN2 LE.

With the second generation of Synfire, the features of all editions have been carefully rebalanced in order to make every edition as useful as possible for their envisioned target audience and at the same time allow us to offer more affordable options as an alternative to the flagship Pro edition.

  1. The Sparks edition helps you understand music theory, write and arrange songs and create instrumental phrases that you can export to your DAW. Its the small upgrade from HN2 and the preferred choice for songwriters, home producers, students and teachers.
  2. The Express edition offers many more creative tools, increased capacities and more control over details. It is the big upgrade from HN2 and a great choice for everyone who whats more than HN2 but doesn't need the full-blown features of the Pro edition.
  3. The Pro edition includes all prototyping features ever made for Synfire, offering the most powerful and productive workflow for professionals and music enthusiasts.
