unfortunately no. This issue require lots of time investment to fond out what is the problem.
The good news is that we should work hard on this topic for the next update (1.7).

Hi Kevin, a little hint, the reverb for me is causing way too much CPU cycles...
Also stack instruments are CPU hog.

Best,
Mauro.

Hi Kevin,
Just one thing,
What does this means?

Add latch mode for Instrument FX Pad: P1 and P2 knob are assigned to same parameter as XY FX Pad

Thanks.

Hi ,when you use latch mode in sparkle ie press instrument and select for latch mode you can now use the p1 and p2 instead of the xy pad.

I forgot to add that it is only for SparkLE users so not very interesting for most of the testers.

Hello Kevin,

This is the final improvement found in this first beta 1.6.1?

Unfortunately I did not see any improvement on loading samples I mean by the browser

is that it is provided on the final version 1.6.1?

is that there will be further improvement before the final release?

Hi Thierry,
I do not understand very well what you mean.
You can PM me in French if you want.

Hi,

at first the good things:

better reaction of the knobs
faster loading of the kits
little bit less cpu usage

then the bad things (I found it critical since release 1.0):

CPU USAGE!!!

a browser with pre listening function in the studio part!!! I need to load every sample before I can hear it. With a pre listening function it would be a faster and better workflow.

this was my testing after installing it... more will follow...
