Project Export
« on: December 23, 2014, 09:48:55 am »
I have autorized my SparkLE and Spark 2 on 2 different computers.
One is my studio Mac OSX machine, where Spark works as drum machine. The other is my Win laptop for live pourposes, where I will use Spark for a live show. If I export Spark projects from my studio Mac (containing samples from my hdd) to my laptop, will those samples be saved inside the project? Manual says NOTHING about "behind the scene", what is technically imported-exported.

hi daksha, when you save a project in export all project ,kit and sample if used are saved in the .spk file. But I must tell you please try as I am having problems with export working at the moment .arturia are aware of this bug . it on my osx system .not sure about windows .

let me know how you get on with your system .please check in the library folder to see if there are layer folders with your samples in them .
I also save sample to library in the pref window.

regards

And the second project, I will do the oposite, to test better what goes and what doesn't.

Ok, no, it doesn't export complete projects, but says "Export Current Bank" and "Export Current Preset". Import shows only an "Import ability, and when I push it, the browsing windows say Presets...so I don't think that moving complete projects from one computer to another is possible :(
This is quite limiting for a so good sounding machine :/

.spk files should be transparent between the two. The issues come when using your own samples or when asking spark to save the samples

I think Arturia have to focus FIRST OF ALL on this kind of things.
Sound is brillant and hi quality as drum machine inside a studio environment and multiout mode, it give best results than battery 3 for shure (at least, i like it more) and better than GrooveAgent 4 (not my kind of drum machine).
Workflow with the SparkLe is a breeze, I start writing drums on it, make some variation, fill-ins, change sounds and samples on the fly and when I'm at a good point, I export patterns to Cubase just in GM by drag 'n' drop and than build a more serious structure and variations there.
SparkLE is simply PERFECT. It's what I was looking for years.
But with this saving-exporting (and most important BACKUP) imitations, it's born "without a serious future" in my opinion, remaining a toy-groovebox targeted to kids.
Arturia staff should have to focus developing on two things before introducing new features: samples loading and project exporting-backing up.
Tons of new features have no pourpouse if tomorrow I can loose all what i did with them, and being able to switch project from studios and production environments is what really makes the difference at this point. A small effort in this way would give to this product a total new customers target, a professional one.
C'mon Artutia programmers, Spark 2 with the right import-saving-reloading projects implementation, could be called Spark PRO.

Hi . i reported the bug with export before release of spark 2.1 . but was not fixed for me when released . i know the guy are working on it but had a massive task due to the new ASC problems. i'm sure it will be fixed soon .
would be great great if some of you could check for me if import /export works  for you . all you need to do is export a new project with more than 8 instruments loaded then when exported delete that project in your library folder . and export it . then see if you have your samples there as well .

Yes, the problem is HOW to export a project with more than 8 instruments. You mean a Bank? There is no Project export in my Spark 2.
