Topic: alphatrack and pro tools 8 on mac osx 10.5.6

hello
is it possible that the alphatrack does not work properly in pro tools 8 (10 sends instead of the earlier 5 for example)
i bought one just today and walked thru the guide but some features seem to be different or not working at all
before going in detail about the problems I experience, maybe I have to wait for an answer first
the tranzport I did not tested yet but maybe it has likewise problems
regards theo

Re: alphatrack and pro tools 8 on mac osx 10.5.6

Hello Theo,

AlphaTrack and TranzPort should both work as documented with PT8, however there may be some new features in PT8 that AlphaTrack cannot access. The additional sends (6-10) for example. This is because Digidesign only allows 3rd party manufacturers to use HUI emulation for control. The HUI spec only supports 5 sends. This means that unless Digidesign updates the HUI spec, or releases a better external control protocol, we aren't able to control them.

If you are experiencing any other problems let us know and we'll try to help.
