After 1 week spent with 1.5 workflow;
1_Effects, turning master switch on then off, the effects assigned to any track is still active even though the switch indicates OFF.
2_Pitch, after you sequence a melody with Pitch mode, playing over the sequenced melody using pads or external keyboard affects the playing melody from the sequencer, eg; pitch follows what you are currently playing live sometimes ignoring the sequencer's recorded events.
3_Browser, Yes... The present format is cool but working with all these sounds make it unwelcoming, "sorry to do this"
Camel Audio Alchemy had a similar issue with users but came closer to solving it in there latest update. Note!
4_Wish List, Work to be done to please every user's personal workflow preference, personally, I wish next update includes the ability to play long phrases with more control, eg; I should be able to press the pad or external controller and play the "long" sample/phrase for as long as I want to not having to listen to the entire thing.
In My Opinion, Spark Drum Machine is exactly that, and could very well be the best at it... presently.
