Topic: Issue with loop function in Cubase 5

I've recently bought Cubase 5, having previously used my AlphaTrack mainly with Ableton Live.

One thing I've been having problems with, however, is the loop function.

Pressing the loop button on the AlphaTrack causes the loop button on the Cubase interface to change colour, as if it's been activated, but it goes back to normal as soon as I let go of the button on the AlphaTrack.

If the loop function is already activated in Cubase and I press the loop button on the AlphaTrack, this switches off the function.  But it doesn't work the other way round: I can't switch on the loop from the AlphaTrack.

I'm using the unit in AlphaTrack Native mode.

Hello Comradec,

This sounds like maybe you are using an old version of the Cubase Plug-in for AlphaTrack. Go to our downloads page at and grab the v1.07 plug-in and try it again. You can also get the latest driver and documentation on the same page if you need them as well.

Thanks.  That did the trick.  Not sure what version of the Cubase plugin I had already but replacing it with v1.07 got it working.
