PreSonus FaderPort 8
“A classy motorised console controller… particularly well-suited to Pro Tools… The integration is slick, smooth, intuitive and, above all, useful.” – Robin Vincent, Sound On Sound
“So first off, this really is a 5 star product… What makes this greater than the sum of it’s parts is just what a huge difference in workflow it can make for you. It gives your mouse and keyboard a real break and allows you to give more focus on recording and mixing and less to programming. It’s built pretty solidly, it’s a very clean and clear overall interface… The Faderport 8 focuses on what I need. Now the only tasks I need to resort to my mouse and keyboard are creating new tracks and routing and loading/saving/exporting sessions.” – gearslutz.com
Advanced, Innovative DAW Control
FaderPort™ 8: 8-channel Mix Production Controller
Don’t kill that mouse—give it a companion.
Although a keyboard and mouse are tried-and-true DAW-control devices, they’re far more effective when used in tandem with the FaderPort™ 8’s precise tactile control over mix and automation functions. With 8 touch-sensitive, motorized, 100 mm faders and 57 buttons covering 78 different functions, you can quickly zoom in on audio files for editing, adjust your click-track tempo with a simple tap, modify plug-in parameters, manage aux mixes—and, of course, control track levels with the touch of a finger. With the FaderPort 8, you’ll enjoy the fastest, most efficient workflow you’ve ever experienced.
Work faster and smarter.
Rather than forcing you to revise your mixing method, the FaderPort 8 augments the way you currently mix. You still use your faithful keyboard and mouse for things they do well, and the FaderPort 8 handles the features you want to get your fingers on, allowing you to customize your workflow. Large, illuminated buttons make finding the function you need quick and easy. Eight high-definition digital scribble strips provide visual feedback. And if you select a track with your mouse, the FaderPort 8 will follow your selection, giving you yet another way to get to the function you need, right when you need it. This is DAW control the way you always hoped it could be!
One-button access to key functions.
The FaderPort 8’s unique Session Navigator provides easy access to eight mission-critical functions for maximum flexibility. Dedicated buttons are provided to instantly arm all tracks for recording; control mutes and Solo Clear; view only the tracks, buses, and VCAs you want so see; and more. You’re not limited to preset controls, either: Four programmable User buttons let you quickly and easily access your favorite functions.
An amazingly fast, efficient studio workflow awaits you!
