I received a month ago. I wanted to gain a Tranzport the same manufacturer, but I learned after that command is no longer produced.

It's a little bug pratiquequi takes no position on a work plan for controlling software, in my case Ableton for recording capabilities are perfect for this, including the ability to connect a footswitch to trigger the recording.

on the other hand, first fader is noisy when it moves. Better he does not decide to move during a recording microphone.

And ESPECIALLY my beast broke down yesterday, February 1st, less than a month after receipt (January 6). Fader hand himself in top position, it no longer controls the software (the other features still work) and engine noise appears every 3 or 4 seconds, making it impossible to record microphone.

I'll see what I say customer service Thomann, hopefully get a refund but a priori the quality seems questionable to me, and I would not recommend this choice

--- Addition February 19 -----

Thomann has ensured a good UPS for sending me the reference.

Another point worth noting once made the craft, still to uninstall the driver and there is not terrible, Frontier Design has failed to provide a sprained uninstall process. The manual AlphaTrack (visited Thomann, but I found a copy on the Internet) sets out the following steps on Windows. Alas, what I saw on my screen does not correspond entirely to what is described! Bravo. And worse, the procedure asks you to edit the Windows registry by hand, which is risky and dangerous because in case of error of manipulation, we can make the PC unusable, and therefore it is WRONG.

In short, I believe Frontier Design is not a serious box! then I really recommend all products from this brand
