This is a private server and it does not have a domain name, that's why your browser says it is not trusted.

Hi Kevin

after downloading the CDM for Windows and installing it comes following error " the setup files are corrupt.Please obtain a new copy of the program ". The VDM file installs without this error. I have tried it with Mozilla Firefox and Windows Internetexplorer

Best regards

Patrick

After much use with Beta, the workflow has proven to be much better in regards to browsing. However two bugs I am running into: (These happened opened as a plugin within Ableton Live)

1. kits sometimes have problems fully loading. The loading indicator gets 3/4 of the way through and just stops. Spark needs to be removed from the project and reloaded at this point it may load the kit in one shot.

2. When recalling an Ableton project Spark forgets the previous kit or sounds loaded, even the sequences. At this point it seems I have to save Spark projects separately from the Ableton Project.

Features I would love to see (Spark LE):
Select + Tempo = Shuffle
Select + Volume = Adjust volume of selected pad

So for me the Live Save functionality work again, but I can't speak about it because sometimes ago, even after the fix, spark does not remembered the kit!

For me the last update have no significant bug, all the previous issues have been fixed!

3 day of work with it!

I'll test it more those days!

not sure this was a feature in sparkle ,i know you can do this with spark cdm as theres 16 separate buttons but you cannot assign the sequencer pads.
