If this is your way to express yourself, people won't get you serious.... Calm down.

I have Spark as well and yes, mine also has some issues (small bugs here and there and some bigger ones too). I really hope that Arturia will fasten their updates for this product which is very promising but it's not there yet. Maybe they would have had few more months to finish this before releasing it.

First and most basic your spoken language is very offensive and way too rude.
The manners of a person reveal his education level as well. I guess the school
for you was just a way to spend your time. I won't comment more of your attitude...
enough said.

Now, about Spark:
Give the support department some time and they will help you as they obliged to.
Did you thought that you might have done something wrong? It happens to all of us
sometimes you know...
Ask for help politely and people will guide you to solve the issues you're facing with the unit,
 until you get the official support.
The way you came here and expressed your frustration is a childish behavior at least...
Spark is a huge and very complex project with a passionate team behind it who worked very hard to make this happen. I saw the evolvement of it since the start of the beta program and
it was amazing how fast some very big bugs were fixed. There are some parts that need fine tuning, some features to be added and maybe some incompatibilities as on every software in version 1.xx, that is a fact.
I use Spark everyday and it's fun and intuitive way to create beats, maybe i know what i'm
doing or i'm a very lucky guy with it, but it's working.
So, calm down as JacksonP recommended and you might get some attention from members willing to help you. ;)

Cheers!
