The PreSonus FaderPort V2 USB Production Controller is a compact solution for the home studio engineer who wants more dynamic control than a mouse and keyboard offers. With 24 buttons covering 40 different functions, a motorized, touch-sensitive fader for real-time automation the Faderport gives you ultimate control when desk space is at a premium.
The PreSonus FaderPort V2 gives you superior control when working in the studio. It doesn't change the way you mix but instead adds a hands-on element that's sometimes to difficult to achieve with just a mouse and keyboard. With all your plug-ins and VSTi's the screen can get cluttered, obscuring those vital functions you need but with the Faderport V2 you really get your hands on the mix, ensuring that whether you need to drop in to record, zoom in on a waveform or simply mute a channel you're just a button-press away.
With 24 buttons you get 40 functions thanks to the shift key, with all your typical and most critical options present from arming and soloing tracks to panning and setting your metronome. The FaderPort V2 also features a 'Session Navigator' section that makes moving through your mix a breeze. You can use the large encoder knob to make quick adjustments, like zooming in on a waveform or scrolling quickly through a project. Either side of the encoder are arrow buttons that give you a more precise way to interact, handy for scrolling measure by measure or simply moving between channels one by one.
Compatibility and Integration
The PreSonus FaderPort V2 is compatible with Logic Pro X, Cubase, Ableton Live and Pro Tools thanks to support for the Mackie Control Universal and HUI protocols. No driver required, just plug in via USB and get mixing. Although compatible with the popular DAW's the FaderPort V2 is designed to go hand in hand with PreSonus Studio One, featuring extra functionality. With the Link Parameter function, the encoder will follow your mouse, allowing you to instantly take control of any parameter or alternatively lock the encoder to the current parameter. You can also bypass all plug-ins on any track with the push of a button for ultra-streamlined workflow.
The PreSonus FaderPort V2 is a revelation for the home studio, full of useful operations in a compact controller that will find itself at home on any producer or engineer's desk.
