Spark MINI firmware 1.9.2.34 (Bluetooth Firmware v1.89)

  • Supports Hi-Z mode (activated via the Spark App)
  • Now possible to record from the Spark MINI via USB out
  • Now possible to simultaneously use Spark MINI’s USB audio out with its Bluetooth Tone Control connection.
    Note: Any audio streamed from Bluetooth will deactivate Spark MINI's USB Audio, therefore it is recommended to turn OFF Spark MINI’s Bluetooth Audio connection when recording via USB to prevent any unexpected interruptions. This can be done via system settings (iOS) or Spark APP (Android).

 

Please follow the steps below to perform the Spark MINI firmware update:

  1. Backup your custom presets to the ToneCloud, Spark App or your Dropbox account before you proceed with the firmware update.

    *For Mac users, since Spark MINI firmware v1.9.2, an additional program (Python v2.7) is required to be installed for the firmware update to proceed. Please rest assured that this program is in no way harmful to your computer and personal information. If you wish, you may uninstall the program after the firmware update is completed.
