Spark ASIO with Cakewalk (Windows)?



  • Hi,

    Has anyone had any luck getting the Spark ASIO to work with Cakewalk on Windows? I'm trying to decide if I need to raise a support ticket with PG or with Cakewalk.

    If I try to record with the Spark selected as input/output (latest 4.80, setup file in the zip is dated 2020/12/23) I get this error:
    0_1594605988012_7f85e650-a325-4596-b9ac-e8659a26cad3-image.png

    The driver settings in Cakewalk look like this. Audio driver bit depth is not adjustable.:

  • @christopher-cook The error message says "may not support the current project's format" -- I see that you have the Sampling Rate default setting at 48K -- what happens if you change that to 44.1K? Or change your current project's sampling rate to 48K so that it matches the setting in the dialog you've shared in your message?



  • If dhbailey's advice doesn't work, open the "ASIO panel" and ensure, in the "WDM device list", that "Positive Grid" is chosen as the default device also tick the "always resample" box.



  • @redhouse_01 Try changing project sample rate to 48KHz(in project preferences dialog), from my experience it is the only sample rate that is supported.



  • @christopher-cook I believe that I always had to change CbB to WDM since I had a similar issue with my AXE FX III.

    Another option for you is to NOT use the Spark ASIO driver and just use the direct out (headphones) from the Spark to your audio interface inputs.

    This way was how I was able to record with my AXE FX III in CbB.



  • I am finally getting mine today according to fedex, I also pulled a trick when they had just sent a shipping label which they had done before and I never got it. this time I tracked the label and it asked if I was the sender or receiver, this time I said I was the sender then fedex told me their address in Reno and if I was to schedule a pick for the next day which I did. this was sunday so the picked it up on Monday and I am getting it today wednesday, proactive my friends being proactive.

  • @mmjconsult I guess they needed to fuck me just one more time, now I will get it by the end of day 7/16 I was supposed to get it by the end of day 7/15 but I figured they wanted to disappoint me one last time and make me wait another day, I do know that it is here in Colorado I offered to drive down and get it but they would not let me





  • Hello.

    I think we have the same issue. Have you resolve it? if ever, can you show me how?



  • I think I've got it working, at least I can record and hear audio back through my PC speakers during playback. This is my config
