SparkLE crashing in standalone & VST modes
« on: October 24, 2015, 11:58:01 pm »
Hi,

I am having some issues with my new SparkLE in Ableton Live and in standalone mode. Basically, the software is crashing whenever I load a new project/kit. Can anyone provide me with a fix to this issue?

FYI I am also running MiniLab, and this integrates with Live without any crashing.

Cheers,
Damhan

Hi Terry,

All Arturia software was downloaded to C:Program Files (x86)/Arturia. However, Ableton is configured to read both Spark and Minilab VST's from C:Program Files (x86)/VstPlugins.

Thanks for taking the time to help me.

Hey, there. I had the same problem at the first time I used Spark and SparkLE. Did you store your Drumkits/Projects in the default folder during installation or did you change something in the path? For me it did the trick, that copied my Soundsets to the default folder. I don't know, why it only worked in the default folder, but although I've changed the path in the Spark GUI, it didn't work (always crashed after a few bytes, the GUI got frozen). After I I've changed back to default pathes, it suddenly worked!

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me. I got a fix to this problem: I deleted all Spark software and downgraded to Spark 1.9 (I think it was 1.9. I'm not at my production PC to check). It seems like the newest update is very buggy.

Thanks again for trying to help.
