    Use for over 2 years. Protools 9 at baseline and 10 currently on Macbook Pro 2012 and OS 10.9.

    Accustomed to more pro solutions (ProTools HD2 with C | 24 in the post-prod), I was looking for a motorized fader and touch for use at home or mobile. After some research and user reviews, I stopped on the Faderport, and I do not regret it! Especially for the price that I wanted to put on and it cost me ;)

    I need to pre-mix or act on writing automation with other mice, especially being a musician and sound designer (shorts, institutional, museum, audio book) with me in my modest home studio.

    I love its simplicity, its motorized fader, stability and transport functions or some other.

    I need to pre-mix or act on writing automation with other mice, especially being a musician and sound designer (shorts, institutional, museum, audio book) with me in my modest home studio.

    I love its simplicity, its motorized fader, stability and transport functions or some other.
    I would have liked to have a direct access to the first plug in insert key example, with a possible increment in the inserts of the selected slice. Especially since in protools, a button is unused. But I quibble!

    If I would do this choice? Yes, definitely, especially for basic functions I was looking for; never had a problem with (I know for others on the other hand ...) even after a flash EPROM. Only a message from time to time (but rare) telling me that my périf is offline: just disconnect and reconnect the usb it works again (it takes 1s). But I have the same problems with my other devices (a master keyboard)

  • very good stuff, but design could be improved under Live

    I use it for 3 days with Ableton Live 8, and as you say I am completely satisfied.

    For the same budget, I actually hesitated between AlphaTrack the BCF2000 and obviously FADERPORT.
    But I found the Alphatrack may be a bit too cheap for my taste, as well as the BCF2000.

    What I especially pushed this choice is the quality of the fader, it is extremely accurate with his fader 10cm long, its build quality and its silence.
    And personal choices, the lack of space at home for a Mackie Control, and the fact that I often travel with my equipment for services outside of my home studio.

    And personal choices, the lack of space at home for a Mackie Control, and the fact that I often travel with my equipment for services outside of my home studio.

    It is necessary to connect an external power supply to use the motorized fader, which is self-powered by USB, but that's the price to pay for a fader responsive, accurate and smooth.

    It is said that on a lot of forums that it is not compatible with VST plugins, but there is in Live mode "plugin control."

    That being said, it is sufficient to position on runway plugin to control; press the button Touch the FADERPORT to put in "control plugin" to navigate through the various plugins (there is no indicator to tell you what level you are, so be it head) with the left or right and then select the one you want to control with the Bank button.
    Then you navigate through the various controls of the plugin in question with the left or right.

    (The number steps to reach the desired setting can actually daunting one, which is why I advise you to directly assign the controls you want to Racks Instruments Live)

    Once we understand how it works, we can finally use the fader (with a resolution of 1024 points I think) to control all the envelopes that you want!
    Finished envelopes with the effects of stairs which sometimes can be heard :)

    Finally, I would say that I struggled to make it work with Live, he had to go through several steps to update the firmware, understand that the material was not "natively" Live compatible and that it was necessary to go to Live carry a key combination to each ignition (all this was not indicated on the paper manual mode because obviously appeared to Live As a measure of firmware updates, so for all additional information, refer to the ENGLISH site)

    I also regret that the potentiometer is notched pan ...

    The price / quality ratio is very decent for what is proposed.
    I remake that choice without hesitation if it falls behind.

    The PreSonus FaderPort is a 1 channel USB Fader that has transport controls. It only cost 129 and can be purchased at almost any retailer online or in store. For it to be such a low priced unit, it sure is well built. It was a lot heavier than I thought it was going to be, I expected a cheap plastic feel to it, but I was wrong it is nice and heavy. The FaderPort has Pan control, record enable, mute, and solo on it. There is also a foot-switch port (foot-switch not included) for punching in and out quickly and hands free.

    The FaderPort will work with your Mac or PC. I have used it on my Windows 7 system and on my Macbook and it never gave me a problem with either one. I have used it......

    The FaderPort will work with your Mac or PC. I have used it on my Windows 7 system and on my Macbook and it never gave me a problem with either one. I have used it with a number of different DAWS and it seems to work great with whatever I use it with. I use it the most in Logic Pro though.

    You just connect the FaderPort to your computer through USB and start using it. It is very simple and just in case you need the manual it does come with one that is easy to understand and use if you need it. This device is very portable and can be taken with you wherever you need it to be. That is the reason why I was sold on this one because it seemed to be more portable and plug and play like than some of other ones that I have used.

    There are not tricks with the FaderPort, it works exactly like it is suppose to and it is truly plug and play (once you have the drivers installed which only take a few minutes). It is not an interface, there are no ins and outs on it. It is strictly a 1 channel fader. So if you already have an interface and just need a fader with transport controls you won’t find any other ones that are built like this for this price. It is a must buy.

    The faderport is a compact desktop daw controller with a motorized fader for automation.

    I switched to this unit from the behringer contril surface bcf2000. The faderport is $129 brand new, I got it for $80 off craigslist. Though the bcf2000 has 8 motorized faders, no led screen to know what track you are on can get confusing when banking through tracks. Since the faderport only has one fader I always know what track I'm on.

    The unit has a nice compact size to it. It doesn't take up much space on my desk. The fader feels good and responds well. I've tested it with Logic 8 and Pro Tools 8. Works great in Logic! and is very easy to set up. Actually there is no set up. Logic sees it upon......

Though the bcf2000 has 8 motorized faders, no led screen to know what track you are on can get confusing when banking through tracks. Since the faderport only has one fader I always know what track I'm on.

    The unit has a nice compact size to it. It doesn't take up much space on my desk. The fader feels good and responds well. I've tested it with Logic 8 and Pro Tools 8. Works great in Logic! and is very easy to set up. Actually there is no set up. Logic sees it upon starting the program and your good to go. Way to go presonus. Pro Tools has dedicated mix and edit which are really nice if you main DAW is pro tools. The fader response is the second best I've seen on a control surface, the first would be the euphonix controllers, which are way more in price to the faderport. So for the price I feel you can't beat the faderport.

    Logic worked great Pro Tools however acted a little funny, as expected. Since the faderport tricks Protools into thinking its a HUI device (which is the protocol Pro Tools uses for its control surfaces) I didn't expect it to work flawlessly. Sometimes buttons won't respond and I have to unplug the usb connection to restart the unit.
    Also the buttons feel stiff to me, this may get better after continued use.
    My final gripe is firmware update process. I downloaded the newest drivers and tried to check the firmware but that turned out to be frustrating, the unit just react like the manual said it should for when checking or installing the latest firmware.

    Build quality is nice, besides the stiff buttons I do not have any complaints.

    for $129 for a motorized fader you can not beat the faderport. Since it has one fader you always know what track your on. Also note that the motorized fader will not work unless its getting electrical power, however the unit will work with just usb power. This is a great way to do some manual automation with a fader for an affordable price.

    I use it for one week.

    I tried a lot of model before it, like the Behringer BCF 2000, a Euphonix MC Mix and even insipidity of big Euphonix console.

    Pros: - the small size for mobility - strength and silence of the factor - functions for Logic and Pro Tools convenient

    Cons: - price (even if it is worth it)

    I think if like me, you look mobility (macbook pro) and one just bland (for follow-up of voices, and easier access to the features of Logic or Pro tools: although there are also shortcuts for that); FaderPort this will satisfy you 100%.

    Compared with a BCF2000, no photo ... I much prefer to have the same price a good flatness held silent long years rather than 8 faders......

    I think the factor more robust than the Euphonix MC Mix (very fragile).

    Judge for yourself;)

    I Read up on this item an decided to give it a try. This being my first presonus component. The drivers that come with it just do not work on some daw platforms. Mine being cubase studio 4.1. Just had some very weird reactions. At any rate the unit is very sturdy and the slider is smooth and all buttons solidly built. Contacted presonus about the problem, after a little prying I got them to send me a v1.2 beta driver for my cubase system. Everything works as it should after the update.

Contacted presonus about the problem, after a little prying I got them to send me a v1.2 beta driver for my cubase system. Everything works as it should after the update. I'm told when cubase did thier update, they changed some coding that presonus had to then rewrite the drivers to correct. At any rate, after that rocky start, this has to be the best thing other than growing another hand! It's very intuitive to use (and I'm left handed) the touch sensitive slider saves tons of mousework on volume control and the other controls are very usefull to speed up the workload. Highly recommend this item, but make shure you don't get frustrated out of the box until you get the correct updated driver.



    All of the features work very well except for the pan control. It is either very jumpy or very precise, and sometimes jumps between being both. The only other thing I see wrong with the faderport is that the fader scrapes against the sides (very slightly) when reading automation. This doesn't seem to have any negative effects besides being slightly annoying.
    Other than that it works flawlessly, and responds instantaneously, which is the most important factor.

    This is an excellent product. FaderPort utilizes the same ultra high-quality Alps fader that is used in professional control surfaces and digital mixing consoles costing 200 times the price including DigiDesign's D-Command. The fader is very high quality and performs as promised. I only need, and would rather have, one very high quality fader than multiple lesser quality faders.

    I know the ProControl and is the same sensations.
    Good quality for money.

    Manufacturing is well made, it's beautiful, practical, well thought out and enough ballast. The motorized fader is very smooth and precise. No problems installing, just a place in a dll file but beware Cubase, Cubase supports only a single control surface at a time, I had to uninstall my master keyboard / controller Edirol PCR30 order FaderPort use, the keyboard once more with Reason in rewire, to choose .. (unless there is a walkthrough that I have not yet found).
    For the less, we may regret not having access to more features, for example to edit and enter values ​​for the equalizer with the fader or simply access the library with the button User configurable, if only to empty the trash missed catch. Maybe a firmware update will allow it one of these four.
    At least for 200 euros, do not hesitate, this is not a toy again, it's real comfort. Go for it!
