Spark™ Lite is a non-stocked board. To see the latest run info, click here.
Introducing Spark™ Lite, the board designed with the active saber wielder in mind. Spark™ Lite is designed to be used in sabers that spend a lot of time in use and don’t want to spend time in configuration.
Spark™ Lite now comes equipped with RealSwing! This is the real-time motion tracking algorithm that allows long drawn out swings for slower motions. Simply put 4 lswgNN.wav files in the lswg folder to enable the feature for any font in font1; default font comes ready to go.
Ease of installation
Spark™ Lite is designed to take no time to install/setup that time can be spent using the saber. All the configuration settings are directly stored in the firmware, and thus there is no config editor needed. Further, the sounds are scoped to one font with a set number of sounds, so that almost any font can just be copied and used. Finally, the board is directly setup for in-hilt LEDs only, with basic flash-clash effects.
For further ease of installation, the board is setup to always use one momentary switch. This keeps wiring simple and operation easy and understandable.
While the features of the board have been scoped to make a streamlined experience, the quality is still top-tier. This board packs a 16 bit DAC, which isn’t even present on mid-level boards from other manufacturers. Further, it retains the MotionSense V2 algorithm direct from Igniter 3™, so the best sound and motion detection on the market, for a reasonable price.
