First post here but not a novice with Arturia products or DAWs.....
Firstly i LOVE the V collection and the update to V4 is superb!!!! fantastic value and a massive nostalgia trip for someone of my age
I didn't specifically buy it for Spark but i've been playing around with it for a while now and there are a couple of things which are causing it NOT to be my first choice for drum machine duties....
The main issue is the lack of song position pointer... i know this has been brought up before as i have searched the forum and the beta forum... this is a real showstopper for those of us who work in a more 'traditional song' way and quite possibly for others too! even my old Alesis mmt8/SR16 setup i had 20 odd years ago could cope with this... i use BFD2 for acoustic drums and it is simply superb!!
The lack of MONO outputs is annoying too, ok i can route each channel to a mono group but it's a ball ache
Personally i think Spark has HUGE potential in a very crowded market.... sonically it's wonderful for sure but those two things in particular stop me from using it.... PLEASE at least add song position pointer!!!
Sorry for the moan on my first post........ having a whale of a time with Arturia stuff apart from that
