Notice how the drumpad layout on Spark 2 software looks like BeatStep...

I love what Arturia has been doing with the whole Spark line. I wish more people could experience the beauty of having such high-quality dedicated controls over such great software - it's very progressive imo. I have the original and love it.

If it's a mini usb how can it power the unit when connected to a pc? I though you needed a full-size usb connect for power (it sounds like this is incorrect) :?

Looks like a great controller. First thing I've seen that says "buy me" since the Microbrute. :)

Mini usb will power it from pc or from wall plug.

you have to have it plugged into something else for it to work, it cant make sounds on its own, surely?
