James, I believe you meant faderport...but I tried the alphatrack when it came out, and I didn't care for it. It was about4 years ago, I believe. It has more features than the faderport, but if I remember correctly, they didn't work as they should have. It could have been a driver issue that is resolved now, but I remember not being too thrilled and returning it. I bought the faderport and it worked just as it should have. I sold it when I got a good buy on a mackie control universal, but ended up going back to the faderport. I find the faderport to be a good time saver and helpful in my workflow. I am on Protools, not logic, but I have no complaints. Hope that helps.
