Why shouldn't these settings work to record audio from Spark to my DAW?
Track is armed....but no sound comes thru (meters show no signal coming thru)....why?

bump....I'd really like to get someone from Positive Grid or anyone else to help me as I want to do some recording this weekend. Thanks.

I have some issues recording as well, but I CAN actually record through it. I just can't record a stereo track, even if my DAW shows "Spark 40 1+2" as input... :-(
I don't know your DAW (what DAW is it?), but... Can't you find a solution in the DAW help section? This thing looks as if it should work. Output level on the Spark? A different USB cable? Sorry, I don't understand either.
@drbaroni I'm at a TOTAL loss..and PG's support hasn't offered anything helpful. The DAW is the totally free Cakewalk Bandlab. Do you know if there is a setting somewhere in the APP that requires pushing the volume level up for the USB output to send the sound out the port to my pc maybe? That's all I can figure. Just bizarre...
So I found the Sparks Control Panel and am seeing, I think, why I'm not getting signal out the USB jack...I circled the Master volume sliders little blue icon in the bottom right...it is blue, and when I click on it, it goes to grey, seeming to show it's muted. Now to the right of that, the 'Output 1 and Output 2 sliders icon is greyed out. Clicking on it does not make it go blue. So , for some reason, sound is not going to the two outputs. Is there possibly something I need to set or disable on the Spark app to get this to work? Thanks for anyone who knows....

What Type of cable are you using between the amp and your DAW platform?
@keoki A type C to type B USB cable. It wasn't the one that came with the Spark because it's too short.

I'll follow, as one problem I have with recording through a DAW (GarageBand) is that the signal level from the Spark is ridicolously low, while the VOLUME of the existing tracks in the headphones blows my eardums away. :-(
