Spark CPU spikes in PT11
« on: August 20, 2015, 11:30:52 am »
I'm having big problems with a lot of the V Collection 4 in Pro Tools 11 on Mac (Mountain Lion) but with Spark worse than all of them.

All plugins are latest versions. I'm getting massive CPU spikes and glitches. Even with just one instance of Spark open, with no internal effects processing going on and just sat idle I'm getting 100% CPU spikes. If I try to play samples they glitch and spike. CS80V, Mini V, Wurlitzer V all spike with just one instance open and playing a few notes. None of this happens in Cubase 6 or Ableton 9 or Reaper 5.

I've submitted a support ticket (4 days ago) but I've yet to hear anything.

9 days since I submitted a support ticket and no reply here either, what's a guy to do to get some help around here?

Still no fix. I've updated to Yosemite and my authorisation disappeared as well.

I currently have these problems described here in this post. Spark 2 Ver. 2.2.0.76 (AAX plugin ver. 1.1.1)is causing the CPU spikes then crashes  Pro Tools HD 11.3.1. Currently on latest version of Yosemite.
Fortunately, I have the demo version.  Also, the Solina Demo I have works fine.

Hi,

Did these issues happen in PT 10.3.9?

There's been a few issue with PT and Arturia VI's. Lots of spiking, especially when the GUI of the problem plug in is open. I found that most prevalent with the SEM.

In PT 10.3.9 HD and PT 10.3.9 seems to work fine for me

Thanks, Stuart

In Sept 2015, I went from PT Accel TDM system to PT Native. I remember used to to have some issues with the Spark VDM when I was under 10.3. The drum machine would start playing then just stop working. It did not really crash the Mac Pro machine. I can tell you as soon as I put this plugin in on an insert, the CPU meter goes right to 100% then crashes PT.  I have most of the other Arturia products and have had no other trouble.  I am wondering about buying this product or just going with an Akai product.

I recently upgraded to the working version of spark 2. It this now working fine. No cpu spiking.  I also got the sparkle controller. This also works well.

Is there any chance this is getting looked at? Spark is still unusable in PT11 for me.
