Hi arturia could we have more control over your own tae / drums in spark a bit like fxpansion tremor , as this would make spark more of a tool as at the moment it feels like a sample drum machine than a hybrid machine. ie synth/sample.

Hi Terry,
we are thinking about something like this but I don't know when it will be done.

Hi Terry,
for the 16 pad in midi controller mode, I don't know, but nothing is decided.
Concerning the flam, the repeat parameter in the automation does something like this.

Have you tried the Roller & FX Pad to do Flams, pressure changes on the snare pad wil give dynamics,

Hi,

In my opion, Spark is currently the only sw&controller combo that can be considered a groovebox and not 'just' a drummachine since it has more realtime controller posiibilities than any other.

It has the potential to be an even greater tool for live performance and such.
In my case with a few changes I could pretty much drop Live and do
everything in Spark.

1. The synth engine
    Remove the over simplified front end and give us the (atleast) 2 synth
    vco,vcf,vca,eg etc with the effects to play with that seems to be there
    'behind the scenes'... i mean more 'serious' synth sounds!  ;D

2. Make patters & instruments so that you can load them without changing bank
    and a browser for those

3. Make knobs 'free assignable' as in now you have 3 knobs per 'strip'. Make it
    so that you can assign them anyway you like so you can have, for example,
    8 knobs per instruments without selecting the 'strip'.

With those changes Spark would be pretty much perfect for oldschool acid
knob tweakers like me.  8)

Ofcourse, DJ style 'track' cue/prelisten, loading partial patterns (like a synth track only),
making the mixer section midi controller based (i mean something like bcr2000), crossfading, loads of realtime effects (tapestop, gater...) etc...
... but hey, maybe in version 4 ???;)

another thing i would like to see is a better menu file system,so you can pick the sounds you need a bit quicker just like machine has.

I second this, although I am happy with the existing file system for Spark.
I'm a very visual person, so the amount of graphical feedback and design of the gui has been very pleasing to me as opposed to, let's say-Maschine...it's just that a simple tree-based file browser window might help the workflow a bit more.
Keep up the good work.
