Buying a used SparkLE
« on: May 21, 2014, 07:52:40 pm »
Hello all,

New to the forums and to all things Arturia, but very interested by the way they are designing instruments. I want to buy a SparkLE. Right now, they are on sale on Arturia's website but there is a used one that "has missing software" at my local music shop. Is this just the physical media? Would buying the used instrument be a problem? Will I lose any functionality? Is the software available for download on Arturia's website? If not, I don't mind coughing up the 70$ difference to buy a new one. I'd just rather not spend the money if I don't have to.

Thanks in advance,

the software is downloaded from  the website maybe the shop doesnt realise this but check if it has the manual as that has the registration details if it has no registration details(looks like a credit card with license number) then avoid it as you will just have the hardware only, unless some one at arturia responds with a way of you obtaining a license
