Spark and Spark XL update – Macitynet.it
TC Works updates both Spark and Spark XL to version 2.51. The recording windows automatically start a new take if the file format does not support large files. Spark XL now supports sampling rates up to 192KHz in Mac OS Classic with Direct I / O and Pro Tools HD systems. It also allows you to exceed the 1 hour limit of recording at 24bit / 96KHz using the SDII format.
To facilitate navigation and editing of the waveforms, two cursors have been added, and the new environment ensures a faster and more precise process in adding editing points and in creating regions. Waveforms have been improved to ensure speed and efficiency. The full support of multi-processing allows you to use Macs with dual CPUs and take advantage of all the power without limits, and thanks to improved file management, even large projects can they open up to 10 times faster.
The Mac OS X version supports Apple's Core Audio and Core MIDI, taking full advantage of the very low latency and allowing you to play the modular synth directly from any connected MIDI device.
Spark and Spark XL 2.51 for Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 are available as a free download from the TC Works website for registered users. This update requires Spark or Spark XL 2.5 already installed on your computer.
