Hi,
 I am running a demo of Arturia's Spark 2 software and have become concerned that the Modular view is missing the vertical scroll bar controls so I can not scroll through the modules list or view the entire height of the patched network display which is shown in the main window.
 
 I am hoping to learn it this a limitation of the demo, and have sent a message to Arturia support. I am anxious to learn about if this is a bug or an as intended circumstance.
 
 I installed the latest version on my Windows 7 x64 laptop sandbox via the Arturia manager software.
 
 Do you recall anything like this when you demo'ed Spark 2?
 
 Thank you.
 
 




I haven't tried it so I don't know.

I think you have to use a mouse wheel to scroll the module list (it seems to work for me with the real/full/licensed Spark 2) I don't see any other way to scroll the module list, but it's not a very big list.  The modular panel can be scrolled by left clicking and dragging and zoomed in/out with the mouse wheel.
 
I've had Spark 2 for a very long time but I didn't even realize it had a modular component.

Mine has no scroll bar either.  But you can scroll using the mouse wheel.

Re: Question about Spark 2 software 2018/11/25 20:33:19 (permalink)
Lots of bugs and complaints about bugs.  They removed it from the version 5 collection (I got it with version 4 I think), perhaps because of the bugs?  I already had the Dubstep version due to some crazy discount deal at JRR one xmas.  The stand alone versions sound library's work with Spark 2 also.
 
It is kind of neat (and fun), especially some of the patterns and kits and the way it was meant to be played (I guess with their hardware).  It really needs an update though.  It does have some very nice sequencing tricks and the kits are actually decent.  But at this point I'd be worried it's more abandonedware.  I do believe they will someday update it, but that may be so far out you'd be better off not counting on it.
 
If you could get it at a big discount I think it's worth having, especially for dance/EDM/Hip Hop.

Re: Question about Spark 2 software 2018/11/25 21:01:24 (permalink)
I have this as well - i think it came with V4 - so I tried to load it up and CRASH.
Uninstalled, loaded the latest version and CRASH
It stalls looking for the controller, which I don't have. And I can only get rid of it with a restart!!!
Any ideas, well except for what Matt says, its buggy!!

Abandonware?... It was updated to version 2.4 in June this year. Personally haven't encountered significant hitches with it.

Thanks for confirming. FWIW, I use a wacon tablet and the scroll wheel function is not the same as with a mouse. I don't miss the scroll wheel, but I guess I need one for this.
 


Most tablets I have used require you to put two fingers on the screen simultaneously within scrollable areas, to scroll them.

2.4.0 does list a lot of bugs as being fixed.  For me it was way too late. When they dropped it from the main Collection my interest went south.  I think they are much more focused on the hardware thing, perhaps a version 3 would have shipped by now (like their other synths).  Still it is a lot of fun to play around with and has some great kits.

Thank you taking a look.
 
Here is an marketing image with an example of what I expect to see:
 

 
Here is what it looks like in Spalt and some other DAWs I tried:
 

 
The first example shows the vertical scroll bars I am speaking of, the second example doesn't show the scroll bars.
 
Thank you!
 
 




I had a chance to sit down today and check on this question. I loaded Spark in FL Studio, Cakewalk and Reaper and can confirm that I have the scroll bars in all 3 DAWs. I am using the 64 bit version of Spark, not sure if that would make a difference, but they are definitely there.

Re: Question about Spark 2 software 2018/11/27 14:13:31 (permalink)
Loaded Spark 2.4.0 (x64) in Ableton Live. Modular View only has horizontal scroll bar at bottom of the main window pane.  Modules window does not have any, but supports scroll wheel movements.  Main window pane supports scroll wheel zoom in/out and mouse-click-hold and drag functions.
 
IMO, if you're building anything in the modular window, you're wasting your time.

CPU Stuff: SPLAT / Ableton Live 10, Win10 x64, MSI M.Power Z97 mobo, MSI Radeon RX480, Intel i7-4790K @4GHz, 8GB RAM

Thank you for checking? What version are you running? Arturia support did reply that I have a known bug and that it is not scheduled to be fixed. I wonder if there is a roll back option?


I'm not at my computer anymore. But I'm fairly sure I'm still using .3, as I haven't gotten around to updating to the most current.

Quick Update
I wrote to Arturia support - they were very quick and came back with a simple suggestion (deleting some preference / setting files) and all is now working properly in both Stand alone and Plug in modes.
Only one scroll bar here on the modular window and that is the bottom one, although you can easily resize and move the window with the mouse scroll wheel.
