Buying Choices

Presonus FaderPort has been around for almost 10 years - it might just be there longest active product SKU - who knows?

Heck we even reviewed the original Faderport back in 2007  when video was square and Nick was thin - here.

For many, the Faderport is the perfect addition for DAW control - a single motorized fader plus transport control, and other basic Mackie HUI control. Ideal for automating the mix a channel at a time, which is something that many people do.

Who needs a full 8 Channel Mackie Control? A lot of people  - Presonus say this is one of the most requested product updates they've had and so now the FaderPort-8 does just that.

With HUI and Mackie Control support it should just work with most DAWs and also have native Studio One support too.
