Default Spark and digi 001

Is anyone using this combination? If so, how good is it? I am having lots of trouble with Bias Peak and 001 and would like to find a rock solid two track editor for mastering. Thanks

Bill.

Spark here... all fine.
You need a (downloadable) driver to be able to choose and adjust the 001 i/o's

IMHO Spark kicks ass compared to Peak.

No problems using both Spark & Peak with 001.
Spark takes a little more time to open when using ASIO DIO.

The best of Spark: plugins. You can use VST and route the signal at your own way. Worst of it: it's too slow when editing audio. If you don't need native process go with Peak. To cut/paste a region on Spark is too boring... IMHO

If you use ASIO drivers in either Spark or Peak, make sure that your Sound Control Panel is set to "built-in." In fact, you may want to consider disabling the Digi Output driver in Extension Manager.

Thanks for your comments. The main problem I have with Peak is stability, it often crashes or hangs. It worked better for me with the Korg 1212 card, but still not as stable as the Pro Tools software. I was hoping that Spark had better integration with the 001 system. I have heard that the latest version of Spark is now much faster which sounds promising. It would be great if Spark or Peak had direct connection to 001 rather than ASIO IMHO. I would be interested in any further experiences from users if possible.

Thanks

Bill.

Spark installs a Direct Connect plugin but I couldn't use it yet. And there's a TDM Master plugin for it that I don't know whtat is for.
Hearing Spark via Direct Connect doesn't give it the same stability that PT have. It simply routes the audio signal.

Perhaps you could set Sound Output of Spark to Built In, plug the main out of your Mac in Digi 3&4 and hear it enabling monitor mode.
