I'm having an issue with my Spark software in which a specific kit (which I REALLY don't want to lose) doesn't load correctly. It's a little unpredictable, so I'll explain this as well as I can... For reference, I called this kit "Reptile". Here is what happens:
When I load up Spark (i.e. turn on the controller & load up the software), if the last kit I used was Reptile, it loads up that kit, but there are none of the patterns that I had previously saved for it, and hitting the pads does absolutely nothing at all. What I can tell you is that I've looked at the bottom page to see if the samples are still loaded and mysteriously enough, they are listed as the correct samples. If I try closing the program, it crashes. The crash happens quite often I'm using the standalone (usually, I'm using Spark through Ableton Live, which poses similar problems).
Mind you, all of the other presets work just fine, and that includes my other user kits. And yes, I had Reptile saved long before this began to occur. But something else happens if I've loaded a different kit before opening the actual program (as in, it was the last kit before closing Spark), we'll take the "Acid" kit, for example...
So, I load up Spark and Acid is the up on the LED, etc... As I said before, it plays just fine. Now, when I try loading Reptile, the kit loads, but in this instance the samples are able to be heard normally as long as I hold down each pad for a long enough period of time (it seems to be dependent on each sample). If I just quickly tap the pad, I get to hear the correct sample and also a bit-crushed kind of noise that accompanies the sample. Oh, and I forgot to mention that the pattern bank is taken from the last used kit, so in this case, I get to hear a terrible version of my Reptile kit, but arranged in the pattern of the Acid kit.
Can anyone help me solve this problem? Will I have to remake my entire kit or is there a way to recover it? Honestly, if I could just get the patterns back, that would be plenty, but if not, I'm prepared to start from scratch. Anyways, thanks for your time.
