Recording “Jam Mode” with the Positive Grid Spark 40

Video initially posted on YouTube by Jason Little on the 2020-06-30


Turns out there are two Bluetooth devices for the Spark amp. Spark 40 BLE for connecting the app to the amp, and Spark 40 Audio for outputting audio to the Spark. So for method one, you don’t need to connect your iPad to the amp with a cable.

I’ve seen comments from from people wondering if you can record ‘jam mode’ and that it would be cool if you could.

I’m not sure why you’d want to, but here are two ways to do it (other than just recording yourself with another phone, webcam etc)

0:16 – the obvious way
0:35 – how Jam Mode works
0:50 – Method 1 – using an audio interface
1:52 – quick playing example recording the jam track and your guitar in a DAW
2:13 – Method 2 – if you don’t have an audio interface
3:24 – final thoughts

Stuff you’ll need for Method 1:

– audio interface and USB cable to hook it up to your computer
– 1/8 male-to-male audio cable
– 1/8 to 1/4 adapter
– Spark amp and USB cable to connect it to the device you’re running the Spark app on.

Stuff you’ll need for Method 2:

– Spark amp and USB cable to connect it to your computer
– screen recorder app on the device running the Spark app
