Spark Technical Issues / Request for Help Setting Up Spark with Logic
« Last post by sarasimms on Today at 05:55:35 am »
Hi Arturia Community,

I would like to set up Spark with Logic, but am having challenges getting the IAC Driver configured properly on my Mac.

In the IAC Driver Properties, the connector's for Spark's MIDI In and Out are greyed out. In Spark's preferences, under 'send MIDI to sequencer' the option that I've selected is YES but I am receiving the message '### would use IAC Driver Spark1 MIDI Out' but the port doesn't exist.

Could someone please help to provide advice on how to correctly set up Spark in the IAC Driver Properties? I need to get this working before this weekend.

Thank you!

Best wishes,

Sara Simms
FYI... I recorded brief video tonight demonstrating connecting the MiniBrute and MicroBrute to each other.

General Discussion on BeatStep / Re: Tap Tempo
« Last post by sin night on Today at 02:06:43 am »
If I were to implement tap tempo on the beatstep, I would consider using use the start and stop buttons (maybe while holding shift?). If in play mode, I would use the play button, otherwise the stop button.

In order to avoid the shift button, I would add a threshold so you enter the tap tempo mode by hitting the button a few consecutive times in a reasonable time (the first 3 or 4 hits are discarded - they are required to enter the tap tempo mode - then the following hits are used to calculate the tempo). To exit tap tempo mode, you would have to wait a reasonable amount of time without any hits (let's say something like 5 seconds?) or press the other transport button (so, if you are in play mode and you're tapping the tempo by pressing play, if you hit stop you would both stop the sequence and exit the tap tempo mode).
I think this way it's easier to tap the tempo, since you don't have to hold down any additional button, you can keep the other hand free to do something else. The drawback is that you need a few more hits to set the tempo. Probably this approach is best while playing.
BeatStep / Re: Resetting the Sequencer on Beatstep
« Last post by sarasimms on September 01, 2014, 11:48:21 pm »
I think I actually figured this out on my own. :)
I have just recently purchased Spark VDM, I do not have the controller. I have figured out how to drag and drop the patterns into DP8 but the drum machine continues to play whether I drop the files or don't. There are certain points in my song where I don't want drums but it seems like no matter what, the drum machine keeps playing a pattern if my song is being played. I'm sure its a simple answer but right now I'm not sure how this works.

I am trying to reset the sequencer for use with my DAW (Logic), a hardware synth and also the iPad.

I'm looking for a global 'reset' function for the sequencer - any idea on how to do this?

Thanks in advance!
