Can this be done?   I would like, for example, to assign Midi program change number 1 to Pattern A1. 

Then have my DAW send that program change number via an automation track and change patterns in Spark via this method.

Seems straightforward enough.   Will Spark respond to this?   If so, how do I assign the program change numbers to each pattern?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks.

However after digging around myself, some happy news.   Although SparkLE won't recognize Program Changes, it does recognise Midi Notes.  And you can assign Midi Notes to the patterns.   Doing this I now have a way to make my DAW initiate pattern changes, but having it play a note.  Actually easier because it only requires a midi track, not an automation track, which I would need to generate a program change command.

Thanks again for responding.
