ok,now that the purpose is clear, the fact is that it just hangs in MIDI Mode, it seems completely unresponsive. page 68-69 in the Manual are screen shots from CUBASE, I just do not understand how this controls LIVE. I've used an APC40, I see no correlation between that as a controller for Live and SPARK. There is absolutely ZERO documentation that describes what it does with LIVE, and the fact that it just sits like it's in a coma with an LCD that says "MIDI READY", yet no pads, knobs, or switches affect the operation in Live, is not reassuring.
I think that Arturia will have to supply written docs. and a video that demonstrates the MIDI Controller functionality, I can't get it to work with anything in Logic Pro, Studio One, or Live 8. It clearly states that SPARK is a Universal Midi Controller that will map and control ANY 3rd party software...I can't get it to even trigger keys in KONTAKT 4, after entering the exact number and key, let alone mapping the entire controller to work with LIVE. Page 69 shows how to load it as a VST in CUBASE, ...WTF does that have to do with LIVE ?
