Hey everybody,
I'm using Cakewalk 6PE on a Windows XP/SP3 machine. For some reason, i simply cannot get my fader to work. By that i mean, when im switching tracks the fader wont move to the appropriate volume level, it simply stays in the position it was before. But when I have an open project and move the fader manually (by hand) the volume level in Sonar will respond properly. So first i thought the motor might be broken, but when im trying to recalibrate, the motor will jump into live. Unfortunately, the Alphatrack still will not recalibrate properly. The fader just sits in one position and doesnt even move a tiny bit. You can just hear the motor working, but nothing else happens. I've now waited about 20 minutes and the AT still says its calibrating...
Any ideas what could be the problem here?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Im using Windows XP SP3. The Alphatrack is connected directly to the PC and Im not using any hub. The weird thing is, that Alphatrack worked before on both, my Audio Computer and my Laptop. Now its not working on the one or the other anymore.

I mistyped something... Using Cakewalk Sonar 6PE, not version 7, even though thats probably not important.
this morning I tried to hook it up to a different computer, but the problem still stays the same :-(

Hi everyone,
I got my Alphatrack for quite some time now, and so far have been really happy with it.
But now, the Alphatrack acts really weird. I just formated and reinstalled my Audio-computer a few days ago. Yesterday I wanted to start working on a new project, installed the Alphatrack drivers exactly as the manual says. Im working with Cakewalk Sonar 7PE and everything seems to work fine, but the fader just does not move at all. It's like it has been switched off. When I try to recalibrate the fader, it just stays in the position wherever it is at this point of time. The screen says "calibrating... do not touch" forever but nothing actually happens. The fader stutters sometimes a little bit during this process and eventually moves a tiny little bit (maximum of maybe 2 millimeters) but the process never really finishes.
I tried to hook it up to different USB ports but the faderproblem is still the same.
Anyone got help for this issue?
Thanx a bunch in advance, Whooricane

PS: I recall reading somewhere that since the Alphatrack is only USB-powered, there is a key combination for switching on/off the motor to be able to save some power when running it on a battery-powered laptop. Is this still available or am I mistaken with that?
