Information message

Firmware is a software program or set of instructions programmed on a hardware device. It provides the necessary instructions for how the device communicates with the other computer hardware.
In other terms, the firmware is the software installed in your amp. It is used to operate your amp and communicate with the Spark app

Firmware updates will be less frequent than App updates. There is usually no need to update your amp firmware unless you have some issues or if a new Firmware introduces new features.

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

  1. Download the Spark MINI Firmware updater to your computer and launch it. Power on Spark MINI (do not connect it yet).
    Download Spark MINI Firmware Updater v1.8.2.19 for Windows.
    Download Spark MINI Firmware Updater v1.8.2.19 for Mac.
  2. Connect Spark MINI to your computer with the supplied USB cable (USB-C to USB-A) and click ‘OK, Go Next’.

  3. Press and hold the Pair and Power buttons on the back panel of Spark MINI until the preset LEDs start to blink. The firmware updater will detect if the update is available.

  4. Click the red ‘Update Firmware’ button to start the update process.

  5. The firmware update is complete when you see the ‘Firmware Updated’ message. Click ‘Done’ and Spark MINI will turn off automatically.

  6. You’re done with the update of the Spark MINI Firmware!

  1. I ran the Spark mini firmware update and it says that it updated the mini and then crashed my computer, and now the mini when you turn it on has the 4 red preset lights flash continuously and won’t let me do anything else. I cannot to it. What do I do now? Not happy

  2. The issue with latency is due to the fact that the Mini is not yet ready for recording; Positive Grid has informed me that a forthcoming update will address this issue.
    (One can’t run BiasFx2 (or any audio modeling app) on the iPad through the Mini system, which is related to the Latency issue. They say they are aware of the problem and are working on it.)
