Simpler than simple, sometimes less it so much more. This little unit makes your workflow so much easier making you forget the mouse and all those cheeky commands. Sturdy case, robust, sensible fader and effective choice of buttons and commands on the unit.
I use it on PT10 and I know that it?s compatible with almost everything, regarding that you choose the right protocols to make it work with your Daw. The transport section is simple and all the other commands makes the traffic hour on your daw look like a vacation day. I have other controllers a mixing desks but I always reach for this unit because of its simplicity. The buttons are great and solid, the encoder feels also high end material and the fader, as long as treat it well, it?s sensitive and responsive. The footswitch socket it?s very useful, especially when you are tracking by yourself. I usually use this unit as a remote controller, right next to the booth, making possible to play or sing with the unit near me, accessible to any input of mine and with the footswitch right under my foot. On the studio desk, it sits nobly next to my main gear, making the mouse something of the passed. Tracking or mixing is much easier than with most more elaborate alternatives and I?ve tried a few. I could spend more time speaking about the material but the main idea with the Faderport is simplicity. I definably recommend it to anyone.
The previous/next style to navigate between tracks is very limited. As soon as there are track folders you are lost. It navigate within these - and if collapsed - then you scratch your head where you are.
Build and working are ok - even though I had to contact Presonus support to get a link to get motorized fader working - and link which were not on the official site.
