So what is the opinion on the Spark? Anyone using this machine hybrid? Looks like bugs are being addressed by Arturia with recent updates. Seems easy to use. Any issues to getting Spark now?

Basically it runs on samples - but they're actually really high quality. The main downside is It's a huge CPU killer, and it froze Reaper both times I tried it. Kind of an awkward 3 panel interface, too. Probably only worth it, if you own the machine that goes with it. Kind of a lot of money for that kind of trouble imo.

"Basically it runs on samples"
... AND a huge modular synth engine (full editing unlocked in v2).

I like the intro videos! If it is stable under Cubase I would give it a try.

Okay, quick tip. If there are CONS in your list, the rating is NOT 10 out of 10.

You are correct! A few cons would normally mean it's less than perfect, but here is my rationale for the 10 rating. ..
Giving this plugin a 9 rating would be too low. If there was a 9.5 option, I would have chose it!
When I was in school the highest score you could get was a 4.0. Now, my nephew graduated with a 4.3. What the? I guess what I saying is this. .. . Spark offers many bonus/extra credit features that go beyond 10, minus some points for the cons. .. .
