Spark Users Community / 2016 and Spark 3? New Updates?
« Last post by deanfreud on February 09, 2016, 12:55:40 pm »
Arturia is very busy with new products, this is good!

But, Spark has a lot of potential for new things and it seems that nothing is happening right now!?

What do you think?
MicroBrute / MicroBrute Sequencer - Simple Excel-File for creating Sequences
« Last post by DerNeils on February 09, 2016, 11:46:07 am »
Hey guys,

i used some of my free time to build an Excel-file, making it easier to create sequences that can be copied to an .mbseq file and then imported to the MicroBrute.
The standard sequence is 64 steps long, but can of course be cut off manually.
To enter a note, just enter an "x" to the note/step you want to be played. This will add the correkt "midi"-number to the sequences text, which you can find at the bottom of the table. Steps left blank will automatically create an "x", which stands for a rest inside the .mbseq. The file will automaticalle add x's to the end of a sequence, if you want to build a sequence shorter than 64 steps. As mentioned above, you will have to cut off the sequences "text" manually. I found no solution for that, but it only takes one extra second to cut off the x's manually.
If you build up a new .mbseq file, remember to add "1:, 2:, 3:, ..., 8:" infront of each sequence's "text".

It's no high-tech tool but i think the file helps creating longer sequences, preventing 64-steps-trial-and-error-sessions on the MicroBrute itself :-)

This is my first contribution to the forum, so feel free to comment and critisize :D
Have fun
MicroBrute Technical Questions - FAQ / using Ableton VST as second "VCO"
« Last post by Onef on February 09, 2016, 10:56:36 am »
good day folks!

this morning I've woke up with this idea in my (fused) brain..
use a VST as second (third...n) oscillator for my microbrute...
what i plan, not yet tested, is to connct the device as follows:

Microbrute --> Mac (USB)
Microbrute audio out --> sound card (imput 1)
Sound card OUT3 --> Microbrute Audio IN

Sound card OUT 1+2 -> studio monitor/mixer

in ableton configure 1 midi track with VST loaded : MIDI From "Microbrute" - Audio To Ext. "OUT3"
in ableton configure 1 midi track with EXT.Instrument in order to make the Brute+VST sound passing into Ableton.

I'll try to use "Mini V" (1,2 or 3 vco at same time... :O ) ...
If someone will try & test let me know, otherwise I'll repost here the results!

This would be great.  Although the default layout matches general midi convention of the gut of the kit should start at 36, but I have a lot of instruments below and above.  Like the accented kick in my RY30 is by default on 35, so I had to move it, but now it doesn't match three of my four kits on the M1.  I can edit on kit on the M1 but the rest are fixed.  Being able to edit or shift the drum map on the BSP would be wonderful.  Perhaps an app for mobile phone so plugging into a computer is not needed to adjust setting?

BeatStep Pro - Technical Questions - FAQ / Re: Setting up Midi Channels
« Last post by megamarkd on February 09, 2016, 06:46:37 am »
Think the confusion here is about how MIDI Thru boxes operate.

That is what I sussed maybe a misunderstanding leading to things not working as expected also.  The 'cheaper' (yet still not cheap) boxes only split or merge, they don't sort channels to ports or anything like that.  I'm running an Akai ME80P (8in/10out midi router) into a Kenton Merge4 that runs back into the ME80P at the moment, but am still on the hunt for a JL Cooper MPB+, as the Akai doesn't route individual channels to the separate ports (it's channel filters are global) and can only merge 2 inputs.

Actually, just peeked at the manual and it looks like the Tanzbär defaults to MIDI Channel 3 for the drum sounds. http://mfberlin.de/wp-content/uploads/Tanzbar_Midi_english.pdf

Weird considering General Midi spec insists that percussion be on channel 10.  Not that the standard is that rigid that no drum machine can transmit or receive on anything but ch10, it's just usually these things ship with the standards adhered to.  Akai have (quite annoyingly) locked their latest drummachines/synths to the standard channels and midi note numbers for both their Rhythm Wolf and Tom Cat.  I guess that is the converse of sticking too hard to the standard.

Will the new firmware fix the sync issues with Logic? Will I be able to switch note divisions and not have the BeatStep lose sync? If so, I might plug it in and try using it again. If not, I will continue to use it as a paperweight because it's actually functional for that purpose.

I have both the Zaquencer and BSP- they really are different from each other. To me, it's way easier to see what's going on with the BSP, I just don't have the same flow with the Zaq. But, it has some features missing from the BSP.
     I'm using the BSP pretty much exclusively with CV these days, and though I do have a MIDI to CV module, I'm using it for keyboard input. So, for my personal situation, it's harder to integrate the Zaquencer into my system.
    Both are great, but not really interchangable.

I just tested against your picture (a "[" is missing in the closing "[img]" tag).
I have the same result : the sound is fading, but not to silence, there is still a small amount of sound.

So either the writer was a bit enthusiastic ;-), or our MB are not that perfectly calibrated.
But as it seems we have the same amount of "tiny" sound, I would tend to a manual writing inconsistency, or bug.

As for the rest I would join AndyQ's point of view.

Hope it helps.
