Dear Spark users,
I've recently bought Spark and I'm planning to go in depth with it. However one of the first things I couldn't figure out is how to integrate Spark 2.0 with FL studio 11. I've got it to work, but it still seems more of an independent entity within FL, if you know what I mean. I can make patterns in Spark, it all works, I can sequence them into a song in Spark etc. and do seem to grasp that. However I don't understand how I can then use all this within the FL studio pattern sequencer.
So far I've found some bypass by using piano roll within a pattern. Here, every note becomes one of the sounds of the pads from Spark. I have to write down which note corresponds to which sound because for some reason it isn't shown. But when that's done, I can create different patterns in FL itself and then sequence them. All the other options from Spark still work here, I mean I can tweak and tune every sound in the studio section in Spark. But it seems like a wrong shortcut, I'm sure I'm missing something.
Oh I forgot to mention that I only use the software. No hardware midi controller added as of yet
Thanks in advance
PS: Is there any section on this forum where one can learn how to make patches in the modular section of Spark ? I would learn quickest from examplse I think. So I can observe how a typical snare or kick is patched and then try to make my own.
