I've taken a long look at the current purchase special as of late and have several questions about the Spark Amp / App.
I have an iPad with JamUp Pro & BIAS Amp 2, I also have an AirTurn Quad. I am particularly fond of the preset banks in JamUp and the Sampler (tho that could be better made). Sometimes I use Loopy or Group the Loop with the JamUp tone / presets running in the background. My typical setup uses a Lekato trans/rec into a Line 6 Sonic Port, the line out on the Sonic Port goes to either DI box or amp when doing stage work. There are several other apps that can coexist simultaneously in the iPad environment for both private and stage work. So... some basic questions that affect my decision to purchase the Spark Amp...
1> I see no provision in either the Spark App or the Spark Amp that indicates support for the AirTurn Quad to access different presets or banks - is this something that is planned or not?
2> I see no integration with JamUp, since I use the sampler quite a bit for solo performances, is there any planned integration between JamUp and Spark like there is between JamUp and BIAS Amp?
3> I downloaded the Spark app, it apparently ONLY works with the Spark Amp, I would like to preview this app and it's functions on my iPad using the Sonic Port is this in any way possible or will be possible soon?
4> The obvious missing connection from the Spark Amp is a line out jack, I'm concerned about using the USB out to a USB in / DI out box when it comes to latency - has anyone tested this (going to a board)?
