Wondering if there are plans to expand the list of effects available for the Spark?
@mchrist11 So isn't every Spark owner on the planet -- there have been no announcements from PG about such a thing. Some users feel that the current effects are all there will ever be because they're built into the chipset of the amp. Others feel there could be others by way of firmware updates to the amp and upgrades to the app.
Some have speculated that such additions may come in the form of paid upgrades to the app and/or paid firmware upgrades.
Nobody knows for sure other than insiders at PositiveGrid and they have said nothing about such possibilities so we all have to sit and wait and hope.
In the meantime, if there are specific things you would like to see added such as different noisegates or loopers or EQ or other effects be sure to submit a request for specific things through the "Contact Support" link at the top of this page. The more people who ask for the same or similar things the more likely the development team is to act on the requests if it's at all possible. Whether they will be free or not remains to be seen.

I posted a thread about using Bias fx/amplitude/garage band with my spark amp, you’ll need some sort of an interface (irig etc) but you can get a load more fx, loopers, eq,amp sims.

@dhbailey actually, back in July 2020, in an Open Letter, the Positive Grid CEO said that the Spark would receive new sounds and effects via a Firmware update ...
Of course, we are still waiting... The latest Spark firmware was released in June 2020 ...
@benoit_mich I had forgotten about that letter from the CEO. However after the continuing debacle in the shipping and customer service departments, and no further communication from the CEO since July, I would not believe a single thing the company put out as PR. He made that announcement in July. We have seen nothing at all since then. That makes me guess that what he promised is harder to do than he imagined. Time will tell whether what he said comes to pass or not. But when they can't even get grounded power supplies sent to everybody who has problems with buzzing amps and shocks from their guitars, a solution his company only needs to purchase the power supplies and ship them out, no internal development necessary, I have serious doubts whether we'll ever see any further improvements in what the amp has to offer.

I like to see more effects coming to the spark amp. I like to see that een octaver effect is add to the spark amp. Is that possible?
@ekops Nobody knows if that's possible or not -- the letter from the President from last July seemed to imply that such things would be possible. Yet in the 7 months since his letter none of what he implied has come to pass. So we all have to simply wait and see if or when such improvements and additions become reality.
