First, thanks to all of you who have been guiding me via PMs I appreciate your time.
If anyone on the forum has the "spark_force_update_mode.syx" file which is used to bring a dead spark into firmware update mode please reply back.
The file and Tech Note Links posted by Edouard at Arturia are no good. The actual .syx file is only 1 byte of info!!! Anything is possible at this point as to why it is corrupt.
But if you are have this file and have used it before you know my pain. I have been trying for days to get something going with this machine with no luck at all.
Any replies or additional info about this would be greatly appreciated. Grompie lmk if you find it..
