How to Export Spark2 KIT to .spk
« on: March 22, 2016, 01:06:55 pm »
Hello,

 I have been trying to figure out how to export a kit as a .spk file, and was hoping someone here might know. I have been trying to research this, and have looked through the guide as well as here, and just can't seem to figure it out. At this point, when I try to export, all I seem to get is the midi files in the .spk file, but not the kit itself.

 I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Hello,

 I have been trying to figure out how to export a kit as a .spk file, and was hoping someone here might know. I have been trying to research this, and have looked through the guide as well as here, and just can't seem to figure it out. At this point, when I try to export, all I seem to get is the midi files in the .spk file, but not the kit itself.

 I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

I just tested it out, starting with a new, blank project. Then loading the first 8 pads up with a few sounds pretty much at random.
So there's no patterns here, and only the first 8 pads have sounds on them.
I exported as .spk .. WITHOUT first saving the project.
Closed Spark. Re-started Spark. Opened a factory project to clear out what I'd previously done. Then I, again, made a new, blank project. I imported the kit I had just exported (remember, I had NOT saved this kit, except to export it to .spk). Then I went to the Library > Kits and loaded the test kit I'd just made.
It came in just fine, with all 8 instruments, and no patterns. No MIDI.

Could you describe what you're doing to make your kit and export it as .spk?

What I'm trying to figure out is why NOT saving the kit is important in this process?  I too have been having export/import issues and would like to know more. ???

After exporting the kit did you then save it?
