I supose they will be great and very stable drivers given the time taken to create them.

Seems that their major competitor presonus faderport had no problem with 64 bit and snow leopard - I don't see that the problem can be so different. Perhaps if it is, and this update is not going to happen we should be told and then just buy the alternative ?

Well, i bought a Faderport and gave it back because I thought the Alphatrack was better (actually I think it is) and customer service was better. I could read Central Scrutinizer answering lots of questions in a short amount of time. Maybe I was wrong

Yes, it's difficult to understand why it takes so much time something so important...

Thanks cgreer, your trick works fine and is much better than my method!

Hi, it's been happening to me also with Logic 8. I wrote a post about this, but found a solution, not the perfect solution, but one that, for the moment, keeps the Alphatrack working fine. You cannot switch off any controller. Keep them connected and ready every time you switch on your computer. Open a project. Then, if you get the message that the alphatrack is assigned to a MIDI port that is missing, go to control surfaces and delete the aplhatrack. Restart logic and open the same project. You'll see that Logic recognizes the new controller. From now on, it'll work fine unless you disconnect one of your controllers, or include a new one. In that case, you'll have to follow the same procedure again. And you have to to this with every project.

Anyway, this isn't a convenient solution, so I'm waiting for someone to solve it, but, if you read the post about the compatibility with 64 bit Logic, you'll feel, at least, alone. And I think that bought the Alphatrack because I liked the Customer service...

Oh, by the way. The same problem happens with the Presonus Faderport

Ok, solved. When I reinstalled the driver,I forgot to delete the Alphatrack on the control surfaces menu in Logic. Once I deleted it, reinstalled the driver and everything is working fine. See you!

Hi, I've been using my Alphatrack (great device under my opiniion) with no problems since I bought it back in august. Then, I made a clean install of Snow Leopard and Logic 9, used Alphatrack for a day, and then, today, when I plugged my AKAI MPK25 keyboard, I got the following message from Logic:

"Device "Alphatrack" is asigned to MIDI Port Alphatrack which is not present.

Please, ensure that all MIDI interfaces are connected and switched on. If this is the case, please check the MIDI port setting of device "Alphatrack". If this is correct, ckick "Reset all MIDI drivers" in Preferences>MIDI>General."

Tried what says in the message, and uninstalled and reinstalled Alphatrack's driver and Logic Alphatrack Bundle, but the problem persists.

I also have another M-audio mk-449c MIDI Keyboard. I´ve been using the Alphatrack with these keyboards before without a problem, so I don´t know what happens now. I had this exact message with the same configuration but, instead of the Alphtrack, a presonus faderport I had before, so I don´t think is a Logic9 or Snow Leopard issue. I couldn't solve it, just gave back the faderport to the shop. This time I won't do this.

Please, any help will be very much appreciated. My specs:

Mac Pro 8 cores, 6 GB RAM. Logic 9.0.2, OSX 10.6.2, Alphatrack, AKAI MPK25, M-Audio MK-449C, M-Audio Firewire 410.

Thanks so much in advance
