Buy if you use studio one DAW
StergiosCozy, 16.01.2019
Since I unpacked this I loved the way it looks. Very well thought placement of the buttons. The faders feel really sturdy and professional and the slightest move you make you can see it in the fader in your DAW and hear it in your speakers. I used it only for a while in studio one and with out going any deep I understood that the integration is great. But my main DAW is Cubase and faderport's integration with that isn't the best. I still didn't have the time to go deep but I didn't have to. The play button works but you hit it again, to pause the playback, it doesn't. You have to hit stop. Above that, the channel, zoom ,scroll etc buttons work but click doesn't turn the metronome on and off. Also when you have shift on, to use the secondary functions which are F1,F2 etc, none of these keys work. Above that, in the automation section, it seems to work fine both in the main functions and secondary when shift button is on. The keys above the 2 shift buttons are working properly but I still haven't tried the secondary functions.
Having said all that, fadersport is extremely fun to use and feels great to have all those faders and functions in your fingers without touching the mouse. If your main DAW is studio one everything is working and you can take advantage of all the features that faderport is offering. I don't use pro tools or any other DAW so I cant tell you good they integrate with those DAWs but in Cubase the integration is just okay. It is helpful and faster especially in mixing but it is annoying that you have to reach to your keyboard or mouse even to open your mixer. I'm not unhappy that I bought this but if presonus opens all functions for cubase like they work in studio one this will be an incredible feature in my home studio rather just a good one that it is now.

I have FP8 from one month. Integration in Studio one is great. I decided to keep the old Faderport so i can use it to control master level. Fantastic product. I like it.
