Hi Scrutinizer
It seems it was a problem with Adobe, or something with the OS. I don't know exactly.  As a final solution I reinstalled XP, and after that I haven't had a problem whatsoever. I had tons of mididrivers, mappers and virtual cables on the old install, might be that aswell, so sure could be something related to that aswell. Sorry I can't be more specific. Thanks for the tip though,  I will keep in mind the usb-port issue.

Thx for the reply. Never found out the issue, so I ended up  reinstalling the os, and after that its been working great.

I've had the Alphatrack for little over a week now, and have had nothing but problems. I've been using  Adobe Audition since Cool Edit and thats why I finally bought  the AT, since AA3 is/should be natively supported. 

I've reinstalled the drivers, checked the in/out midi, and external controller in Audition. I've installed,uninstalled  and reinstalled the drivers, both the new ones and the old ones, tried all the different usb-inputs,  put the CV2 file in the AA2 install folder, and all the other logical things to do, and the same issue seems to reoccur; after a couple of seconds in AA the AT goes blank, the LEDs go off and it stops responding. Then I have to "reactivate it" by clicking the "preferences" button etc. Then it works again for some seconds, or AA3 crashes. This happens on and off, sometimes it works for a whole session, but normally (90% of times ) it doesnt work. Then magically it starts working again, the day after. Calibrating it doesn't help either.
I've ruled out the grounding issue, and the AT usually work fine in Ableton Live under MCU mode . So this is kinda getting on my nerves, and I'm close to sending my AT back. Could it be related to the "Alphatrack Native" mode, or is it with Adobe?  Please someone? Moderator?

Well, my mistake, it seems to work with ableton live, so it might be related to adobe audition, any experiences with this?

Well, I finally got my new AlphaTrack yesterday. Installed drivers, enabled "Native", launched Adobe Audition 3, set the midi and external controllers to Alphatrack. It worked PERFECTLY, for about thirty seconds. Then  it went blank(the LED still lit though) without me even touching the buttons or fader. I opened "preferences" , just pressed "OK" and the Alphatrack was running fine again, for about 20 seconds.Then it happend again. The calibration still works though... I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers (the hard way, with the Run-command thing) and installed the Adobe Plugin several times.  I did bring my laptop to work, where there is grounded power,and it worked(as long as I had the power connected) so I'm left with the grounding issue theory. I have NO grounding at home( old house), so shall i then render my AT totally useless, or does anyone have a solution/workaround to this? ANY help would be welcome. I just can't believe there is no notification of this problem before purchase...
