Spark LE frozen
« on: August 15, 2018, 11:19:35 am »
Hi guys, I own a SparkLE and since the beginning I always had the same problem:every time I try to change velocity by holding a step and press on the pad my SparkLE get frozen. I notice it happen everytime I touch a really low velocity, same thing happen when I use the roller function and I press super light.
The machine still working but I get all the lights frozen.
I thinked it was for my old computer but with the new with only spark istalled still do the same problem.
When I change parameters per step it work just fine even if I press 4/4 step together.
If I use the mouse in the sequencer page for the velocity it works just fine.

I contact Arturia and they suggest me to change the usb cable which I sostitute with a short pro one still the same. They told me SparkLE is a BER(beyond economical repair) due its low price. What's the point of the warranty then? I mean if I product come with a fabric defects you're basically f***ed!? I literally don't understand why don't ask 50 more and give all the necessary support.

This problem happen in standalone and vst both 32 and 64bit.

Any suggestions?

I love this hybrid drum machine which it's a shame once it's the only one in the market. I planned to implement a MiniBrute but honestly I will move somewhere else where you got support.

Ex. I own a second hand akai apc key 25 which is ridiculous cheap already. Akai give me all the activation code for abletom etc. and I'm not even their clients since I bought tha gear used.

just to be clear: it happen when I reach 1 to 10 Velocity, I try to stress the drum machine buy changing multiple step and it works fine till I touch that kind of range.
Also I just noticed if I try to click the connecting/disconnecting button it give me only disconnecting...even if the icon it switch to blue/grey
I already try to reinstall the driver, troubleshooting, deactivate both SparkLE[0] and Sparkle[1] in the software device, still same problem.
I try to run  SparkLe in Midi - OX and it doesn't seem to freeze at all, also the seem to respond much smoother on the pressure I can almost stay in one note/midicc when in spark feel impossible.
I don't know if it can help.

I also notice that the LATCH option doesn't seem to work om the Roller. No problem with the LATCH on the Filter and Slicer, it works as you expect but nothing happen on the Roller.I noticed it move the setting to 1/4 no matter where I was but doesn't work at all and if I hit a pad it will just play as without Roller effect.
At this point I think it's a software problem.
Please help me I love so much this drum machine!
