The Presonus Faderport8 is an eight-channel controller with eight touch-sensitive motorized faders, a multi-purpose encoder knob, and transport controls. Mixbus has a special mode for the FaderPort8 which provides dedicated features for this hardware.
The Faderport8 may be used as an MCU device, but most users will prefer to use the custom “Faderport8” mode. In this mode, the Faderport8 closely matches the behavior described in the Faderport8 manual when controlling Presonus StudioOne. ( Presonus and StudioOne are trademarks of Presonus ).
Mixbus’s Faderport8 operation was funded by Harrison, and developed largely by the Ardour open-source community. You will find up-to-date documentation for the Faderport8 operation at:
