A wrist saver!

I was looking for something to give my wrist a break from endless mousing. The FaderPort does everything they claim it does. One hint I picked up from a video. I originally placed the FaderPort on my right near my mouse. Simple but powerful tip––I moved it to the left so I can still use the mouse for detail stuff while using the FaderPort for the heavy lifting. Wish I'd bought it sooner.


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

Some work to make work but worth it!

I love this little device. It did take me jumping through a few hoops to make it work with PT LE 8 (Windows 7 64bit) but was well worth it!

well worth the buy

the greatest thing since the invention of ice cubes,well worth the buy, looked a long time for a good fader port,this thing does every thing, no mouse needed,my wrist thanks you.

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.

Sweetwater Advice

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.

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.
