Much clearer than before and this is not a facelift as heard ...
The manual is clear and sufficient?
Yes, limit there is none needed.
MAC - Nothing to report. Anyway the Arturia and TOP support and bugs are resolved when there are updates in aa very very regular basis. I SPARK CDM since the beginning and all the expansions.
Well I never give 10 principle. Spark 2 is not a facelift! I Maschine MKII and Spark CDM with software 2. J'adore opportunities as offers LIVE Spark, I like most Layout "drummachine" in the horizontal matrix MPC to Maschine, it allows the use more in the direction of a TR. The possibilities offered by version 2 and modular open on creating presets greatly enriched the beast is huge ... one could imagine a job just like layering Analog Oscillator Rytm ... + Sample. The ergonomics are better thought! And honestly Spark Live 2 master effects and effects on each slice 2 is more than enough! it is even more comfortable that I will say to the base, as well as in chain DAW you can add!
I think Spark is simpler (but not simplistic!) That Maschine, lighter in fact, I would not advise a beginner Maschine ... And to be honest apart from the synth drum, infinite groups and the table mix (well. ..) I'm not totally FAN version 2 software Maschine, I was extremely disappointed! This is not the case of Spark 2 which emphasizes a step above and IMPROVED clear concept. I do not think Maschine on pushing to buy the studio version which is very dear to benefit from all the features live ...
Note: A new version 2.0 FREE for users of version 1.0 which honestly does not care about the mouth of which, apart from Arturia say THANK YOU I do not see too that we can say, I pay Native Instruments with each evolution version And most everyone else in too!
Thank you to Arturia for these devices! a company that excels in the "hybrid" and the "hardware"!
