Author Topic: SparkLE unresponsive on pads 1 and 3 - MIDI Note On/Off absent  (Read 96 times)

Hello everyone!

Got lots of Arturia bits, and one of my friends gave me a SparkLE to try to see if I'd use it.

It's in good physical shape and has been kept in the box - no physical damage I can see - but when I tried it, pads 1 and 3 weren't sounding.

Looking at the output in MIDI Monitor, the pads are providing aftertouch assigned to the correct notes, but maxing out at 106 or thereabouts even with serious pressure.

The other pads provide Note On/Off and aftertouch maxes out with fairly light pressure.

I can't find any hardware repair info - so I am guessing this is a rare issue - but wondered if there might be a hardware calibration or service mode that can be run?

It's on Firmware - was already on that when I was given the controller.
