Device Preparation

Spark App Preparation

  1. Make sure your Spark app version is up-to-date.

  3. Make sure your Spark Control (SKC50S-x vx.x.xx xxxx) is not connected to Bluetooth on your mobile device.

    If the Spark Control is connected, please unpair it by forgetting this device. 

  4. If your Spark Control has been successfully connected to other mobile devices, try forgetting Spark Control on the previous device before attempting to connect to the new device.

AirTurn Manager Configuration

  1. Download AirTurn Manager (App Store / Google Play) on your mobile device.

  2. Launch AirTurn Manager. You should be seeing it scanning for devices. 


  3. Power on Spark Control, and make sure Bluetooth on your mobile device is turned on. AirTurn Manager should detect your Spark Control and show it in the menu. (The device starting with the name 'SKC50S-4' should be your Spark Control, please don't mind the thumbnail.)

    (If your Spark Control cannot be detected by AirTurn Manager, please contact support for further assistance.)

  4. Tap on the device and you should see options for configuring your Spark Control. When you step on Spark Control's switches, it should also light up accordingly in AirTurn Manager, indicating the connection is successful and the foot switches are working properly.


  5. Scroll down to find the 'Advanced' option.


  6. Make sure 'Open pairing method' option is selected in the 'Advanced' tab. Hit 'Save' at the top right corner to save the setting.



Now please launch Spark app and reconnect to Spark amp first, then Spark Control.


If the connection issue persists after trying the above, please back up your Spark presets and perform a factory reset to Spark amp and Spark Control, then try again.
