So many Spark 2 bugs...
« on: May 12, 2014, 01:43:11 pm »
How did these slip through the beta tesing?? (I am using x64 vst in Presouns S1)

The distortion effect does not really work, Crunch 1 and 2 are the same, Tube is what one of the others used to be and the volume changes are not linear at all.

The Limiter effect labels and knobs do not correlate.

Most of the other effetcs seem to have big jumps in effect level when moving knobs/sliders.

Sometimes the saved effects do not recall it's settings until you touch it in the mixer.

The tooltips always seem to be in the way of what you are using.

Spark still takes a age to load.

It all seems quite rushed, like Spark 1.x, the app itself sounds great (I use it on basically all tracks I produce) but there is no excuse for how buggy it i,s coming from a big company like Arturia.

Not yet Kevin, though the notes say nothing about any of the many effects bugs being fixed.

Hello Kevin,

I downloaded build 369 and nothing has been done with the effects. Labels still wrong on Limiter for instance, massive level jumps on Distortion etc etc. Also, I am doing a project with the Glitch Hop kit, but today has decided to pitch up the kick to max and will only play at that pitch (this happened before and after the update to beta 3). Good one...

To be fair its not true that nothing has been done because it has its not the same release everytime

Although I agree that things like this should have been fixed by now

I think arturia will agree to

But its not happened that way so your just have to wait

I think there working in cells on the beta

Fixing one part at a time

This also saves having to do work twice

No point in changing labels if there redesigning the componant

The bug your reporting about pitch can you give more details

I assume you have removed the sequencer automation and it still pitch changes

I cant get this to happen after i removed the automation

Have you removed the decay as well so it doesnt just play the peak of the wave

i sorted the pitch thing. The software decided to put itself back into host mode so was playing the midi from the daw and the pattern internally. Don't understand why this would effect the pitch of the kick, but hey.

I only mention the effect bugs again as it says they have been fixed in the release notes. Surely it's not a big job for one of the developers to go through all the knobs in the effects and make sure the code points to the correct one??

I have not fixed the naming issues on the fx parameters but I have fixed the misplaced ones do not remember exactly but some knobs were not at the right place).
I will do the label thing ASAP.

The distorsion one is more problematic because this is not something new (actually here since we added the disto) and it might break some user presets.

Hello Kevin,

This distortion bug is a real pain. Everytime I open a project with distortion on a channel (every project I have...) I have to manually adjust the volume knob to get the correct levels back. When is this pretty major issue going to be sorted.

Also, a new one today, when trying to re-open a project for the first time today, after using the Syndrummer template, it causes a memory leek and crashes my machine. I am using Presonus Studio One x64 on PC with 8gb of ram.

Cheers, Martyn.

I'm having a HUGE issue with volumes and sends. If we hipotetically divide the trackpad in 10 parts, when I put my finger on "8", the effect is barely audible, but move my finger and put it one step further, and it instantly goes insanely high! The same happens with the "Volume/Pan", just below the top, the sound is barely audible, a few milimeters upwards, and goes WAY too high. This basically renders the trackpad unusable.

Is this how it's supposed to work? Am I doing something wrong?
