...Some of the kits I swear were mixed by someone with hard of hearing...

I totally agree. :)) Herzig DNB for example.

Dear Arturia,
for this Christmas I wish that SparkLE could...
- export instrument automation together with MIDI clips
- export MIDI clips respecting given SHUFFLE settings (I ended up quanitizing to swing in DAW)
- allow recording pitch automation with MIDI keyboard (e.g. when pressing key onbe octave lower than the sound, it would save pitch -12 for given step and create note with given velocity)
- allow bypassing all effects on instruments, aux busses and master bus at once
- allow using external effect (I understand this could be a problem with cross-machine compatibiltiy of exported libraries; this is just nice to have thing).

Why?
My workflow with SparkLE is following: I ended up sketching beat patterns in Spark and then exporting them to DAW. Then on some occasions, e.g. changing patterns, I like to  add little drum changes here and there.

I like some kits really well, especially vintage drum machines. However, is it just my feeling, or the sounds with internal effects are a bit thin?
It does not bother that much, because one can map kits into DAW and use additional effects (I especially like vintage compressors and Valhalla reverb which can thicken sound and add depth to it). Then it sounds to me great.


Arturia, please try looking at all positive feedback in this thread and make SparkLE better. I am sure that it would attract more people to it.

Also, using Volume knob to set up Shuffle would be nice! I never use Volume knob.

Hi , You can use select and tempo to change shuffle .

I like some of your other suggestions too.

As a relatively new user of the SparkLE, I really like it and can get used to pretty much all of it's current features.

All I think it really needs is TAP TEMPO!

Would be great to be able to reassign (sparkLe) controller knobs.

I.e. I rarely use master volume/swing or BPM functions during jamming, so it would be nice if these knobs could be utilized as per channel filter:cutoff/resonance, volume/pan, Attack/decay etc. This is partly since the touch-pad is not precise enough to make adjustments, also constantly changing the assignable knobs requires visual connection to screen.

Jog dial could also function as nice cutoff/resonance knob in main window...

Touch padīs precision could be also affected if it could be set to operate like laptop track pad which sensitivity/resolution can be altered. I.e. Making 0-127 value change can mean 2-3 strokes across the touch pad. Although touch-pad issues might be hardware issues of my unit...

Also this question may fall in this category https://forum.arturia.com/index.php?topic=90730.0 If "spark mode" button/pad/knob behavior can be affected as "midi mode" is there is lot be explored in workflow vise.
