Spark as controller: FX pad and patterns etc
« on: June 15, 2012, 02:17:33 pm »
I've got a complicated problem that Kevin is hopefully looking into, but i'm just posting here in case anyone has experienced it.

I am trying to setup the spark as a midi controller in Logic 9. Not using the Spark plugin, but to control other plugins.
Using the spark midi control centre, I am able to specify what messages are transmitted. However, when using both the FX pad, pattern buttons, and possibly the step buttons too (i haven't checked that far) there is a problem.

As well as transmitting my selected message, it also sends out F no3 maj7 chord when i hit the fx pad, and for instance on pattern 1-16, sends out F1 with varying velocity according to which is pressed. This is not always visible in the environment  "input view", but IS visible in Logic's transport. If i change the message to nothing, the problem disappears. But of course i need a message to be outputted!
Private ports are disabled to a null instrument as per the video and manual.
The FX pad was a key feature that swung the Spark over the Maschine, so i really hope this can be sorted and it's just a weird quirk!

I'd be very grateful for any assistance, I can't integrate spark into my workflow until this is sorted.

Hi,
if I am right these messages are sent on the private MIDI port that is used by Spak software and Spark MIDI Control Center. So if you disable this port on your DAW there should be no problem.

Hi Kevin,
I sent you a video demonstrating the closing of the private port and the continuing of the messages, did you receive it?
Best,
Phil

Hi,
I should have missed it.
Can you tell me the support ticket number?
