Spark Mini & App Requests
Having been playing with this chap for a week or so, several thoughts have come to mind in terms of moving forward.
- Spring Reverb - This seems the most surprising miss sound wise. Multiple amp models that are known significantly for having a spring reverb (Blackface and Blues Junior Fenders to name a quick two) yet no spring reverb option. The difference between the available reverbs is also remarkably subtle, this would give us some notable choice.
- 'Sets' of Hardware Presets - Building sets of four sounds for different situations and storing them somewhere in the app for one-click placement into the hardware would be very practical for those of us who play/practice music in different bands or environments. One set for acoustic music maybe, one set for bass, one set for heavy rock guitar etc etc.
- Line Out with Speakers - I don't know if this is possible, it depends on the physical design as to whether you can feed a line out and still feed the speakers, but I'd find that really useful in several situations.
- Duplicate Pedal Positions - What I mean by this is the option to have the basic delay in the Reverb slot, or the EQ pedals in the Delay slot. Not necessarily every pedal everywhere, but a few choice additional options where it wouldn't cause processing overload would add significant flexibility without requiring any more modelling R&D.
Don't get me wrong here, I am delighted with this mini beast and getting a huge boost in guitar playing inspiration from it. I do feel that several things could significantly move things on from my perspective, hopefully without too much drama.
@rex-progrock Sounds to me like you are talking Bias FX while I was talking Spark Mini. No Scenes in the Spark app that I have seen.
@rex-progrock Very true.
They also have little excuse for not putting a spring reverb model in the Spark series if they have one either. After all, it's what's in the vast majority of the amps they are modelling.....
