Presonus Faderport

The Presonus Faderport is a one-channel controller with a single touch-sensitive motorized fader, pan knob, and transport controls. Mixbus has a special mode for the FaderPort which provides dedicated features for this hardware.

When attached, the Faderport follows the selected (red-bordered) channel. You can change the selection with the Faderport’s > and < buttons.

The Faderport has these controls:

  • Fader
  • Pan knob
  • Mute / Solo / Rec-Arm
  • Channel Select, including Output(*)
  • Fader automation mode: Read, Write, Touch, Off
  • Undo ( shift+Undo to redo )
  • Punch : blinks when auto-punch (in or out) is enabled
  • Transport Controls including Loop, Markers, and Goto Start/End, as shown.
  • Mix, Proj, Trns, and User are user-assignable buttons, see below.

The “Bank” button is currently unused.

The Faderport’s control panel provides a means to assign functions to the various buttons:

Remote-control protocols are largely developed by the Ardour open-source community, and you can find documentation about the FaderPort on the Ardour website:
