The Presonus Faderport 8 and Faderport 16 have been top sellers for us ever since their respective releases and continue to be very popular solutions for streamlining studio workflow for hobbyists and professionals worldwide.  If you have been looking to rid yourself of the frustration of trying to mix with a less than cooperative mouse the Presonus Faderport products are worth a look!

Let's face it - the keyboard and mouse interface typical of computers is great at certain things...and absolutely a frustration for other tasks.  When mixing audio it is usually much more convenient to grab a physical slider and move it than try to click on a screen fader and try to drag it exactly where you want it.  Same goes for buttons and knobs for adjusting typical mixing parameters such as aux sends, gain controls and other quick access functions.  Additionally some parameters end up by necessity layered into menus on the typical screen configurations of DAW software.  With work surface controllers such as the Faderport 8 and Faderport 16 these controls can be laid out in a more intuitive and easy to use manner.  Easily adjust track volume, modify plugin parameters, adjust aux mixes and more. A Faderport controller is the perfect companion to the mouse and keyboard interface ensuring a better recording and mixing experience.

The Faderport 8 and Faderport 16 feature the following:

  • Illuminated buttons for quick access to functions and parameters*
  • Digital, user defined scribble strips for quick visual orientation
  • Touch sensitive, motorized 100mm Faders for quick and intuitive control
  • Easy and reliable USB 2.0 connectivity
  • Footswitch input for hands free start/stop operation
  • HUI and Mackie Control Protocol support for universal compatibility
  • Enhanced integration with Studio One DAW software
*Faderport 8 has 65 buttons covering 78 functions while the Faderport 16 has 89 buttons covering 104 parameters

The Presonus Faderport 8 and Faderport 16 are extremely well thought out and designed products that have been extremely popular choices for a very large number of our customers.
