BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Beatstep gate signal?
« Last post by Tudy on July 28, 2014, 02:58:09 pm »
BeatStep has Gate voltage 8V without connection only.
If you connect BeatStep's GateOut to standard gate input on your (nonArturia) instrument, this voltage is smaller (btw with Moog Rogue, or Analogue Solutions RedSquare, smaller than 2V).
The fault is 100kohm serial resistor on BeatStep's Gate Output.
You can change this resistor to smaller (1kohm), but...
Website / trouble with website registration and activation
« Last post by iba on July 28, 2014, 02:30:11 pm »

I would really like some help getting my SPARKLE activated.  I registered on the website but I got some sort of error message when I clicked submit and now my account does not have any account details on it (Attachment 1). 

Then when I went to register my instrument and receive the activation code, I put the serial number and unlock code in and pressed submit, and the website returned an error again.  I did not get an activation code then and no email was mailed out to me with a code.  When I tried to resubmit my serial number it said that the serial number was already taken, so the system has it somewhere it just doesn't want to give me my code. 

I tried to contact technical support but the first two times I submitted an error the website crashed and I didn't receive an email.  The third time worked but I never received a confirmation email.  So I'm not sure if anyone is working on my problem.

Please help! I just want an activation code so I can start saving my beats!

Please PM for further details!

Hi ben

Yess that's my problem the latter, automations made in spark sequencer are not exported to midi in sonar. I found that spark has some nice 909 preset patterns with automations that I'd like to use but can't due to the automation data not exporting to sonar only the midi data uhhhh! Lol

 I tried the. Parameter method and that works fine if your using your own automations. I watched a video on youtube about recording spark effects and automations and that was possible in the DAW Logic. I'd have thought sonar would have been able to provide the same facility in X3 studio.

Anyway if you have any more suggestions in getting spark to send automation midi data iam more than open thanks!
BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Knob encoder acceleration setting
« Last post by reflexibel on July 28, 2014, 01:08:26 pm »
Seriously, politely and with all respect, is anyone at Arturia actually physically using/testing these beyond a simple twiddle to check they work ie checking things are actually physically and ergonomically practical and useful in the real world and across a range of products including their own? I don't want to whip a knob around just to accelerate it to do a one-turn 0-127, or do multiple stop/starts as I keep turning and turning the damned thing.... I want to do a single turn of my hand/wrist over 2 bars.

Oh man i cant use this m...f Stepper for my live set. it is unusablke for months.
I have a great respect for the Ideas of your Products, but i think u should test your products from a live performer.
BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Beatstep sync issues
« Last post by phormz on July 28, 2014, 12:25:02 pm »
Okay, so I bought Beatstep to function as an additional analogue sequencer for my modular using Gate/CV. Everything in my studio is clocked together via the Mac with Logic Pro X and Expert Sleepers Silent Way plugins and hardware. This setup works perfectly for everything else I have.

However, with Beatstep the midi sync is waaaaay off and sounds something like a train crash!  :o
I have to bring it into line by triggering different sequencer resolution settings like toggling 1/4 and 1/8th notes ...and even then it's entirely dependent on my timing of hitting the pads. I can get it pretty much spot on within 3 or 4 attempts, but it'll only stay in sync as long as it's left playing. As soon as the sequence is stopped and started again, I have to do it all again ...and due to being dependent on my hand's timing, will obviously sound slightly different than the last time I played it.

This sucks BIGTIME !!

I do realise that Beatstep is a comparatively inexpensive device, but the features it does have should at least work. I'd say that the capability of syncing with other gear (for a sequencing device) is nothing short of essential. Beatstep is potentially a fantastic unit and makes sense in so many ways, but currently the lack of basic functionality renders it almost useless. I'd rather pay more money for something that works.

Pleeeeeeease sort this out Arturia !!

To make this a real drum pad it needs:

MPC/Maschine note repeat

This is pretty crucial. Its also the main reason why I don't use this a drum pad midi controller. I would if it did this.

Also as everyone asks, different step lengths for each sequencer step

BeatStep - Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Problems with Midi Learn
« Last post by ben arturia on July 28, 2014, 11:21:09 am »
Are sure your BeatStep is on control mode.
Try to recall an other memory.
Please check again with MCCu.
There is no bug on MIDI learn with BeatStep. It's working great...
Hi byrdy60
You mean you are not able to record a pitch automation made with controller in Sonar ? Or that automations made in the Spark sequencer are not exported in MIDI ?

In order to write automations with controller you need to select the parameter you want to automate in the drop down menu of the automation track and select "Spark Vintage Drum Machine" then choose the parameter you want.

Automations made in Spark sequencer are not exported in MIDI.

Tell me if i answer your question here.
