I'm happy I got it working. I thought it had been lost to history until I saw this thread again. I really like some of the sounds. I might have to learn how to use it now. Drag and drop audio and midi is great. Changing the preference so the software doesn't keep looking for a hardware controller is great.
I never used it after getting it but the sounds, like the Linn are exactly what I like.
the sounds are great, in my opinion. the song mode is indeed terrible, never use it.
drag and drop audio/midi, works great. first make the sequences in Spark 2..
o well, it is not history, for me. and it has a modular, for real emulation, for the 808, for example, and you can control sounds in many ways. nice effects, nice mixer.
making own drumkits is also fun in Spark 2.. i always liked it, even if i have battery 4, MDrummer, Punch 2 (last one quite recently..). and more, maschine on it's own for example.
i still like the Spark 2. the Linn is great. 2 Linn's it has, and by the way, you can download for free, some experimental, and some less experimental, soundpacks for Spark 2..
Spark 2 comes loaded already. i know there is always discussion, especially about the Spark 2, but to my ears, it performs quite, quite well. and automation!! it is easy to use.
(and yes the old CDM controller, makes it a real drumcomputer, the touchpad!, 3 endless encoders, for 8 pads (you must switch banks, 1-8, 9-16), the sequencer, the loop divider. old skool perhaps, but still great, in my honest opinion).
EDIT: i have used the Spark 2, in 20 or 30 tracks i believe..
