Spark LE Aux Sends all messed up in Protools
« on: February 17, 2014, 01:11:44 am »
hi everyone

i just purchased a spark le and i am having trouble setting up the aux sends in PT9

i would like to set up 16 audio tracks in PT with each of the 16 spark le pads going to their respective audio tracks.

the problem i have is with the MIXER in sparkle and the busses in PT.

SPARK LE MIXER OUT 2 = PT SPARK AUX 1
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 3 = PT SPARK AUX 2
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 4 = PT SPARK AUX 3
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 5 = PT SPARK AUX 4
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 6 = PT SPARK AUX 5
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 7 = PT SPARK AUX 6
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 8 = PT SPARK AUX 7
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 9 = PT SPARK AUX 8
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 10 = PT SPARK AUX 9
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 11 = PT SPARK AUX 10
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 12 = PT SPARK AUX 11
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 13 = PT SPARK AUX 12
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 14 = PT SPARK AUX 13
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 15 = PT SPARK AUX 14
SPARK LE MIXER OUT 16 = PT SPARK AUX 15
NOTHING* =  PT SPARK AUX 16

I can't get any sound out of SPARKLE to go to PT SPARK AUX 16

so where is SPARK LE MIXER OUT 1? is it supposed to be the MASTER?

so this leaves me with a problem. i can't set up a track for the BD with the input bus as SPARK AUX 1, because SPARK AUX 1 is actually SD. so i have to setup a whole bunch of other routing in PT inconsistent with the way 2-16 are set up. really disappointing that i have to waste my time sorting this crap out.

why does SPARK LE MIXER OUT 2 come out PT SPARK AUX 1.
and why does no sound ever come out of  PT SPARK AUX 16?

hopefully it gets fixed up in the SPARK 2 software.

i suggest
1. have a master out
2. have 16 proper stereo aux outs IN ADDITION TO the master output.
3. have the sparkle mixer out numbers match the aux numbers in PT.

the software is several years old now. why isn't this sorted out already?

cheers

just checked in ableton live

similar problem

there are only 15 stereo aux outputs though. unlike protools where the 16th one does nothing.

they are also mis-mapped

SPARK LE MIXER OUT2 = ABLETON INPUT CHANNEL "1/2 SPARK"
SPARK LE MIXER OUT16 = ABLETON INPUT CHANNEL "29/30 SPARK"

there is no ABLETON INPUT CHANNEL "31/32 SPARK" - but there should be

why would arturia decide the BD should not have an AUX 1 out?

cheers
