How to use spark as controller with ableton 9
« on: January 23, 2014, 04:51:33 pm »
Hi i've ever used the spark drum machina as a stand alone instrument, now i will use it like a controller with ableton.. i tryed to download the template but i've not understood how can i use it with the arturia midi control center, when i select a template with midi control center and i press a pad it plays a higher o lower midi note and it doesn't act like a controller...
someone can give me some tips or can explain to me what i have to do to use spark like a controller? thanksss

Hi , think i can help .first did you down load the live template from the site. in the file you will see a live template and a spark smc file
put spark into midi mode .holding down the three buttons next to the fx the spark midi control centre in the menu open and find your smc file press ok then in action send to the spark controller. now double click on the live template and you will see that spark can control things in live the faders .you can custom these what ever you want to use them in live.

hope this helps
