Topic: Cubase/AT woe

Hi, I've not been able to get Alphatrack working well on Cubase 5.01 (XP SP3 32 bit) with Plug-In 1.0.7.  If I touch any control in squeals, and if I touch the  touch strip the display says "scrubbing".

I've got the midi I/O mapped to Alphatrack and the latest dll in C5 components -- is there anything else I need to do?
thanks, roy

Hello Roy,

What do you mean by "squeal"? Like an audible sound?

The Scrubbing message sounds like the scrub mode got turned on. You can toggle Scrub mode ON/Off by holding Shift and tapping on the touch-strip.

Is this a laptop or desktop style computer? It its AC connection properly grounded?

Tell us as much as you can and we'll do our best to help.

The squeal seems relate to the VST the current track is mapped to, it is a musical squeal, and different for each control I touch: so if I touch the slider, I get one sound, and the rotaries have different sounds.

I've just tried it with a track mapped to Cubase HalionOne "Steel Guitar VX": the rotatries give me fret noises, the slider and tapping the strip gives me a drum sound, while Shift and Loop play guitar notes.

It also leaves the note data out of tune: I can't see any midi controller info, but I have to reload the project to get things working right again (even if I save after it gets messed up).

Desktop, and I've check earth continuity between the Alphatrack's USB port and AC ground.  It's fine.

Hello Roy,

Ah, this is likely an easy one. If you go into your Device Setup panel and select MIDI settings, make sure that AlphaTrack IS NOT checked as an "All Inputs" device. This is only for musical midi input devices.
