Why did I wait

Ok. It's only been plugged in for 5 minutes and I regret all the years that lead up to now. If you're not working on a console for any reason: space, money, mobility...whatever your reason: this thing is SO much better than not having the controls you need. It's a handy format, it plugged in and worked (S1) and I have no regrets. (And it's not nearly as expensive as that last mic you bought that didn't make anything sound better at all). No it's not a Neve console. Yes it is absolutely worth every penny of the price tag and much more. Buy with confidence. (Of it breaks tomorrow I'll be sorry but as for now...)

very great, I think everyone would need to have, if recording.

Great tool for my studio!

I have a midi keyboard/controller which works fine but the Faderport puts the controls I need into a much easier format. I use Presonus Studio One 2 and Ableton Live 8 and the Faderport works well with both. I play and record guitar and keyboard, so I connected a footpedal to the Faderport to enable record. It just makes everthing easier and more convenient. Once again, Thanks Presonus and Sweetwater.

A Great Interface at any price

The Faderport has been one on the neatest and most useful tools I have bought for my studio. Granted I have lots of equipment, both hardware and software, but the functions that this little thing performs are just what I need. It is solid, well built, and works perfectly. I needed to download an up to date driver from the Presonus website because the motorized fader did not work inititially, but it works now! I have Pro Tools 10 and Windows 7 64 bit. I have a fairly active studio, and do film scoring and record small groups so I needed something that allowed gave an alternative to using a mouse. I usually have up to 16 tracks to deal with, and even with one fader, the speed at which I am able to use the controls on the Faderport more than pays for the modest price I paid for from Sweetwater. Thanks guys. And thanks to Paul, my sales engineer.

No More Mouse

For me this was the ticket. I use Pro Tools 9, Logic Pro and Studio One 2. I found that it works great and frees up my hands to no longer depend on the (MOUSE) I like the price of the Fader Port and simplicity of use with the three above mentioned DAW's. The 100mm fader works great for adumation and just works.

Sweetwater Advice

Nick Schenkel

Upon installing the FaderPort in my project studio, my workflow was simplified and improved drastically. The intuitive, hands-on approach that it affords allows me to focus on making music and working creatively. At this price, the FaderPort is a no-brainer of a bargain, and should be included in every home or portable studio.

Marcos Sanchez

The PreSonus FaderPort is an affordable and powerful solution to having a tangible control surface for mixing. The controls map out easily with your native transport controls, and include all the features you would need from a larger scale control surface, in a space smaller than a piece of paper.
