Is the sparkle worth buying still?
« on: August 24, 2017, 01:04:42 pm »
For the price it seems as though its a no-brainer. But it seems as though there are still problems with the software and it wont be supported any longer. I'd like to use it with bitwig 2, will it behave ok?

I wouldn't do it! Until there is an software update, where the bugs are adressed.

Any opinions on the ni maschine mikro? Would it be a good substitute? I really like the Arturia software,also the controller, obviously I dont like the bugs though.

i have maschine already and i bought spark le yesturday and i love it, but it is a real shame about the lack of bugfixes/updates, this could be the best drum software out there, nothing else comes close to the sound engine/modular synth, such a nice sound. it's just a shame that it isn't being updated

maschine and spark are two very different things, the drum synth in maschine isn't for me (i use more vintage sounds) spark really shines in this regard, it just sounds great.
maschine is good if you have a more sample based worflow, the two together are amazing

Thanks for the help guys. I think im going to get spark le first and then machine later if it doesn't work as I am hoping. Come on Arturia please update spark! No updates are the only thing putting me off buying it.

HI!

still worth? yes!

upgrades and updates always come one day or another depending on the way we can help the develloppers.

i just bought mine last week and had several trouble to register and a few other minor bugs because of the lack of knowledge but i'm pretty shure that at Arturia they will never let a product half done. they are like all the other and want to be proud of their new baby  :)
