Spark controller is a very flexible generic MIDI controller.

It comes with a "Spark MIDI Control Center" utility application that you can use to customize every knob, dial, button and pad to send either MIDI Note or CC values (or MMC on some buttons), so if there isn't a template (from what I know, there's currently only one Live template) you can do your own the way you want how you want :)

hi,

I'm very interested in Sparks. But does anyone have feedback on Sparks as a midi-controller on hardware-synth. I would like to be able to connect it with my DSI TETR4,
,use the sequencer without pc and assign more Tetra parameters on the Sparks knobs.

Thanks,

Theo

Spark controller is not a MIDI sequencer so you can not use it to sequence your synth.
However it is a great MIDI controller with lots of knobs, buttons and the X/Y touchpad  ;)
