Technical question to the Spark step sequencer and others
« on: July 24, 2011, 11:25:02 pm »
Hello fathers of the Spark... ;)
If I set the sequencer on 32Steps, it is possible (for better programming) to run only the last 16 steps?
If not, that would be a practical update!
It is very complicated, to program the last 17-32 Steps, at the moment.  :-\

Also, I notice that when I turn the snare drum louder, the kick drum shall lower!
Without any compressor on a channel (not even in the master)!
Must it be so?  ???

What else? When I select a snare drum with the Jog Deal, the display does not show me the value of the volume knob when I turn the master volume!

Sometimes after using the pads/instruments 9-16, I can't  hear the kick drum from pad 1, I need to load them purely again! Many crazy things...

Is it correct that the Toms are linked together too?
So if I use the Mid Tom on the same step as the Low Tom, I hear only one of the two Toms.
I do not like that...
Please note for the next update! I would like to decide for myselves whether the hi-hats are linked together ... can not be that hard!

I wonder whether you have programmed beats with the Spark before you have published him. Sorry sometimes I do not think so ... :-\

Hi keplinger,
- About the 16 last steps, you can do that with the loop mode.
- About the snare drum compressing he kick, is it happening on every project or just on some of them?
- About the jog wheel and volume display, when you are using the jog wheel, all the other display are disabled.
- About the toms, the answer is NO. The only instruments that are linked are the HH.
- About the pattern, I think that almost all of them has been programmed with Spark but Emilie could probably give a better answer than me.

Thank you for your quick reply Kevin!

"About the 16 last steps, you can do that with the loop mode"

 - I'll try it!

"About the snare drum compressing, is it happening on every project or just on some of them?"

- It is fallen to me yesterday when I work with the Spark and I'll keep it in mind!

"About the toms, the answer is NO. The only instruments that are linked are the HH"

- That's crazy, yesterday I loaded a Hihat in pad 7 (Low Tom) and another hihat / ride to Pad 6 (Mid Tom). The Hihat of pad 7, I have set to Step 15th, the Hihat of pad 6, I've also placed on Step 15, but Step 15 was not played!
Only when I took the Hihat of pad 7 from Step 15 down, the Hihat from pad 6
is playing all steps (including Step 15)!
I hope that is clear and understandable!  :-*
Is this a bug? I swear I've taken no drugs before and slept 8 hours!  ;D
(But perhaps you when programming the Spark?)
Maybe I should take some to come to the same level?

"About the pattern, I think that almost all of them has been programmed with Spark but Emilie could probably give a better answer than me."

- What do you mean?

If you load an Hi-Hat to another instrument, it becomes an hi-hat and it is added to the linked list.
A workaround for this is to change the instrument type to something else.

I said this because you thought that Spark's beats were not programed with Spark.

And how do I change the instrument type?  :)

It may be that my English (including Google translate) is not always understandable, I'm sorry. for this...
With the beat programing was different thought...

In the instrument view.
At the top left, there is a drop down menu that allow you to choose the type.

Thank you! I've just tested and it works!  ;)
