Spark as a note stepsequencer like midibox ?
« on: November 06, 2012, 01:47:08 pm »
Hello Masters,

    Is there a way to use Spark as a note stepsequencer like midibox ? Would be amazing to have, for example, the pads with notes and being able to adjust the note length, pitch, velocity by tweaking each knob related to its pad. That would help a lot do produce bass lines for example.
    If there is no way to do it, is there any chance to add this feature on the road map ?


Thanks in advance,
lne

I don't know if I understand well your question but, to have the pads playing different notes of the same instrument you can use the Tune mode (you can switch between step buttons or pads in Preference view).
For the note length, you can use the decay even it is not exactly the same thing.

Thanks for your reply, Kevin.

I am not at home right now, so i couldnt try the Tune mode.

But what i meant is basically if there is a way to sequence an external synth using Spark Sequencer.

Tune mode is only another way to change the value of Pitch parameter.
I you have a Pitch parameter on your synth and can assign a MIDI parameter to it it could be possible.
But this will be an hacky way :)

Is there a way to request this feature ?

In my opinion this new  feature would bring spark to a new level of equipment....   would be a dream.
