Making tap-tempo useful
« on: July 05, 2012, 09:29:36 am »
I have to admit that I love Spark.  I would love it even more if the 'tap tempo' button and tempo control knob were MIDI assignable, even in Spark mode.  That way we could map the button to, for instance, Live's tap-in feature.  If you guys get bored, try implementing that and then watch as sparks of happiness and love shoot from my eyes.

Hi,
I don't understand what you want to do.
When you are in Live, Spark should be synced to Live tempo. If you want to assign the tempo knob and tap button, you have to do it in MIDI controller mode.
Sorry but none of the control should be assigned in Spark mode.
You even have to disable the private port which is the port where all the messages are sent when you are in Spark mode.

Well, yeah.  That's exactly it.  I understand that I can't do that now, but I never use Spark in standalone mode.  I imagine many others don't, too.  It would be super handy if Spark could output a midi signal as a plugin that would let me use the knob and button that are right there. 

It's just a fancy, a far off dream.  I won't cry too hard when you tell me it's just not happening.

You can switch Spark Controller in MIDI Controller mode to control Ableton.
