Yeah jsmirk, you said right. Trigger Finger is a host with a drum inside and synth also, Akai developed a kind of big sequencer with a sample based engine, Maschine is another host-like application...well, I don't desire loading an host inside the host to write a drum. I want a drum machine with separated outs inside Cubase. Stop. I want to write my main patterns on its hardware and sequencer in the old way, but than, when i'm done, stop the sequencer and put midi patterns inside cubase, and manage them from there. And Spark is THE ONLY product on the market that does it, and does it well and fast. Fucking brillant Spark. I hope Arturia doesn't miss its opportunity and its way, keeping updating the platform but also keeping it's "sense" and straight-to-the-point operational mode.
C'mon Arturia. Keep it simple, fast, and stable.
I don't say this for the money I spent, I say this first of all for my music, 'cause I don't know where to find other gear so functional to my needs.
