Versatile Control Unit
The PreSonus FaderPort 8 is designed to improve your workflow, minimising the time you spend clicking through endless controls and parameters in your DAW. The FaderPort 8 features eight premium-quality, motorized Alps fader, normally reserved for high end controls surfaced and digital mixing consoles. It also features a range of large transport controls including the standard Stop, Play, Fast FWD, Rewind and Record buttons. In total there are 57 buttons covering 78 different functions, allowing you to easily access and edit parameters with a single press of a button. You can do everything from adjust your click-trap tempo to modify plug-in parameters and automation. The FaderPort 8 is the ideal companion for your keyboard and mouse, allowing you to control the more in-depth features that usually require a lot more work.
The most unique feature of the PreSonus FaderPort 8 is the ‘Session Navigator’ which provides quick and easy access to eight critical functions for optimal flexibility. The Session Navigator gives you dedicated buttons to instantly arm all tracks for recording as well as controlling mutes and SOLO clear and more. The highly versatile functionality even gives you four programmable User buttons, which can be customised to access and control your favourite functions.
The highly intuitive layout lays out all the major functions and controls in a clear and concise configuration. Mute, Solo and Rec buttons are included for added control within your DAW allowing you to control different parameters with each button. You can even create your own custom key mappings, allowing you to cater to your favourite parameters, VSTS and anything else within your selected DAW. You can use the PreSonus FaderPort 8 to do everything from recording fades to write single-channel or grouped-channel automation in real-time. Eight high-definition scribble strips provide precise visual feedback for all your functions, even in low-light environments. It even includes a footswitch input for hand-free start/stop functionality.
the PreSonus FaderPort 8 will easily integrate with all major DAW applications as well as providing tight Studio One integration. The streamlined workflow and support for the Mackie Control and HUI protocols, give you the ability to control virtually any DAW. Its plug and play functionality eliminates the need for drive installation, simply plug in your control surface and you’re ready to go.

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
