About PreSonus

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 FaderPort is created, 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.

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.

Control your DAW's solo, record-enable, window selection, play, stop, and record functions. Manage markers and punch in and out with a footswitch (not included). The FaderPort makes it fast and easy. You can even create your own custom key mappings. And if you use PreSonus' Studio One DAW software, your FaderPort will be automatically recognized and can be used to tweak virtually any plug-in parameter.

Works great


from Milwaukee  -  Professional Musician

Bought it to use with presonus studio one pro and 1818vsl. Seamless integration. Just plugged in and hit connect in studio one and voila! Everything works. That's a rare treat when dealing with computer recording gear. My only complaint would be, when shifting through virtual mixer channels, nothing in the daw indicates what channel you're on until you move the fader. That's a failing of the daw, not the fader port. There may be a way to make that happen, but I haven't found it yet. So far, very happy.
