A superior solution for anyone who mixes in the box, the PreSonus FaderPort provides a 100 mm touch-sensitive, motorized fader for writing fades and automation in real-time and 24 buttons covering 40 different functions, all in a compact chassis that easily sits on any desk.

Work Smarter
PreSonus has incorporated elements from the award-winning FaderPort 8 into their new and improved FaderPort V2 USB Controller. Rather than forcing you to revise your mixing method, the PreSonus FaderPort V2 USB Controller augments the way you currently mix. You still use your faithful keyboard and mouse for things they do well, and the PreSonus FaderPort V2 USB Controller handles what you really want to get your fingers on: your mix. This is DAW control the way you always hoped it could be!

One-Button Access to Key Functions
The PreSonus FaderPort's unique Session Navigator provides easy access to eight mission-critical functions for maximum flexibility. Use the large encoder button and companion buttons to edit and mix with greater efficiency and speed. Scroll through your timeline, using the encoder, or work measure by measure with the arrow buttons; zoom in and out on the timeline with the encoder and make your tracks larger or smaller with the arrow buttons; navigate and drop markers; and maintain constant control of your main level. Once you start using the Session Navigator, you’ll wonder how you mixed without it.

Universal Compatibility - Integrated with Ableton Live
While compatible with most third-party software, the PreSonus FaderPort offers deeper integration with Ableton Live (version 10.1.5 and later). Navigate clips and scenes, change track volume and panning, and switch between Session and Arranger views, the PreSonus FaderPort will help you work faster than ever. The PreSonus FaderPort’s streamlined workflow and support for the Mackie Control and HUI protocols also make it fast and easy to control Logic Pro X, Cubase, Pro Tools, and more. No driver installation is necessary; just plug the control surface into a USB port and take command of your mix.

Built for Studio One
The optimized PreSonus Studio One mode will revolutionize your workflow in PreSonus' award-winning DAW (Studio One Artist included). Use the Session Navigator to quickly move and nudge events in the Arranger window. The unique Link function allows you to instantly control any parameter beneath your mouse with the large encoder. Control link lets you customize your function buttons and much more. You’ll be amazed at how much faster you can work.

An Amazingly Fast, Efficient Studio Workflow Awaits You!
With the compact, easy-to-use PreSonus FaderPort, you’ll enjoy the fastest, most efficient workflow and the most session control you’ve ever experienced.

    Works flawlessly in Logic Pro X

    Posted by John Milazzo on Jun 28th 2017

    Remember to visit the Presonus web site and download the latest patch updates and you will be good to go. Without the updates, various functions will not work.

    The fader has a very nice touch to it and there doesn't seem to be any latency in writing volume changes.

    Highly recommended.

    Great hardware. Difficult software installation.

    Posted by Milton Messenger on Dec 15th 2015

    FaderPort works great. Very smooth fader. However. setup in Cakewalk Sonar was very difficult. Had to manually move the faderport.dll driver file into a different folder than where PreSonus download had placed it. PreSonus needs to have a Sonar (and other major DAW's) configuration with settings that places the driver file in the correct location for each major DAW.

    read carefully

    Posted by makoto naganuma on Oct 14th 2012


    BE ADVISED: THE DRIVER 1.3.8. SOLVES THE NON RESPONSIVE FADER PROBLEM

    installed and updated to the latest version of the drivers.... the fader itself stopped working. In order to get it to work again, had to Google the faderport drivers and finally found one that works.

    It`s actually in the presonus page but not in the download section. Its a glitch update that calls himself faderport 138 driver.


    After fixin that glitch.... is the best purchase ever!!!!! this 100 mm are 10 times more accurate and musical than the mouse or any other fader you can buy for more expensive budgets. To top that... sits right there for you tu react instead of thinking about the mix and lets be honest, we can only ride one track at a time so.... why do you need more.

    the people from front end audio were awsome!!!! as always. if i find the pade again i will update the review with the adress if not, email me so i can send you the driver

    Poor manual you have to figure out

    Posted by Alfonso Priale on Jul 3rd 2012

    After a huge search on the net I finally find out how to install FP and setup it properly. I use Sonar X1 with W7. The manual doesn´t say a word about how to install it. After all I think is a great unit. Something to improve besides the manual is the pan control, it´s kinda weird.

    Great affordable controller

    Posted by christopher smith on May 24th 2011

    This controller is affordable and works very well. A little flaky with Pro Tools, but rock solid with Logic and of course Presonus Studio One. The issues with it and pro tools is by no means a deal breaker. Just loses connection sometimes and needs to be reset. Buttons are a little clicky and noisy but the fader is very smooth. I have used a alpha track and I greatly prefer the fader port. I've also owned the behringer bcf2000 and I like the fader port better. Yes the Behringer has 8 faders but no led screen once you jump back forth between bank of tracks you get lost. Trust me, at this price fader port is the way to go.
