"Man…I love this thing. Bottom line is I love my Faderport. I was glad I picked it up. Trying to map various controllers to your DAW can definitely be cool, but having a dedicated transport/fader control just feels more natural." - Sounds and Gear
"Hands-on control of your DAW can speed up your workflow considerably, but what if you don't want or need a console-sized controller? Enter the Presonus Faderport… Presonus have picked the correct functions to place at your fingertips without making operation in any way complicated. …a great idea for anyone who has limited space or needs their controller to be portable. Simple though it is, the Faderport makes operating a DAW far more pleasurable than working by mouse and keyboard alone." - Paul White, Sound On Sound
Kill that Mouse!
FaderPort: Motorized fader control for your favorite DAW.
Touch your music.
As great as DAWs are, it’s a drag to control the transport and create fades and automation with a mouse. Most musicians prefer a real fader and transport controls that they can touch.
That’s why we created the FaderPort™, which connects to your computer via USB and delivers complete transport controls for fast and efficient recording, along with a high-quality, touch-sensitive, motorized fader for writing fades and automation.
Great feel for perfect fades and smooth automation.
Feel is crucial when you’re spending countless hours recording and mixing. So the ultra-affordable FaderPort features the same high quality, touch-sensitive, long-throw, motorized Alps fader that is found in expensive control surfaces and digital mixing consoles. With its 1,024-step resolution and dual-servo drive-belt motor, the response will be smooth and seamless.
Compatible with virtually all major DAW programs, the FaderPort enables you to record perfect fades and write single-channel or grouped-channel volume, mute, and pan automation in real-time.
Compatible with all major recording software for Mac® OS X and Windows® (Pro Tools, Studio One, Logic, Ableton, Cubase, Digital Performer, Reaper, etc.)
