well i dont know about the tuning...But maybe it could work better if for example pressing 1 gave you the note C ...  pressing 2 the note  D etc.....         



Also... where has the delete function from the hardware gone?

There are a few things that have been removed from the hardware, but in software they continue to work

 Obviously it is usefull to delete mistakes from hardware... It used to work well......
( you can do it from the sequencer obviously but i think it was a nice alternative)

But anyway!... Not so important i guess....

Better instrument organization is needed...

 A lot of them are at random places and it is difficult to find the right sound..

In what way?

I agree that if you search via 'all' is becomes impossible to find a sound, this is more to do with that there is so many sounds and drums in Spark. But all sounds can be found via their family. i.e., you can search via Bass Drum, or Snare meaning that you will only find bass drums or snares.

In the library, reserving you'er fave kits in one bank means you can switch off all the other filters

For example?

I don't get that at all, when I filter by snares i get snares. I filter by low toms, I get low toms etc etc. I don't have any sounds that shouldn't be there.
I don't see how it could be better organised 

Thanks, Stuart

Well...There are plenty of examples i can give you...

There are fx sounds all over the place...filter claps and you will find female breathing from (the asylum) project.  Evil presence from the ( dracula )      fighter vocals from (fight night) even quica sound from ( latina hollywood)

Filter percussion and you will find some synth sounds from the (expandable) project

I dont want to search for all the wrong categorized sound now...But i tell you there are many of them..

The problem is mostly on the hollywood expansion pack..but there are many other random sounds as well except from that...

Allow ability to pattern chain on SparkLe. All it needs is a shift function and use of sequencer buttons. Please please please chaining from hardware would improve the workflow tremendously!

Yes was searching for closed hats today and was getting lots of fx type sounds from expansion packs.

Also the auto preview which I think has been mentioned already is so temperamental.

I do have expansions, yes. 2 or 3 of them. It might be a Mac Vs Windows thing. Are you on a Mac?

I use windows 7.....

        One more thing about instruments organization its the synth category...I never try to look something in there..its a total chaos...It has to be divided in subcategories for example bass leads vocals pads and i dont know what more...

The more organized things are the better for us! +  its an easy update to do ....

Perhaps Mac users don't have issues with the categories being mixed up? As  say, I don't see this issue.

True, but potentially you might have a sub categories with only 1 sound in, making it a bit pointless to dive down into multiple sub menus.
But in principle, this would be more helpful
