Great product, bad service from Presonus
Streetiq 04.12.2021
I have purchased this one to use with Cubase 10, the product arrived in great shape and I received great service from thomaomann.de along the process.

When I tried to install the faderport , it made my DAW to freeze and crash, no matter what I did.

Today I know that the solution was very simple : this device has different modes for different DAWs and the mode it came with is: studio one. It should be change to Cubase mode.

back then I didn't know this fact and so I turned to presonus and asked for help. Pls pay attention they do not take calls, so I had to open a ticket.
Presonus, instead of letting me know this very tiny thing about the "Cubase mode" and how to set it, which was the only problem, decided they didn't want to support me because my system is out of support by HP. I had to bring In 2 extra computers and invested lots of time with installing my DAW and the controller on it, and they still didn't help!
Although I asked if this mode thing could be the problem! The second computer I brought they didn't want to support because it's out of date and they told me I have to update it.... and the last laptop I brought hey finally agreed to support after 10 days, but I already solved the issue by myself.

Overall, very bad experience with presonus. Their support manager emailed me afterwards and said he is sorry for the trouble, but I really do not understand why to make a client go through hell trying to get support. It should not be interesting what computers I use. Just give me the simple solution and that's all...

After I solved the issue, the device is great and works very good with Cubase 10 and I enjoy it a lot, but the service of presonus left a very bad taste.

Does what it's supposed to do
Filam 17.12.2020
A handy addition for your DAW.

I use it with Logic Pro X on MacOs Catalina. It's very responsive. Once you turn it on the slider synchronizes very quickly to reflect the selected channel strip in Logic and vice versa.

Although I know quite a few keyboard shortcuts for Logic, I often find myself reaching for the Faderport because it is easier to have a dedicated button for a function. (like solo/mute/automation modes...)

The things you don't like about it (for ex. the play/pause/stop behaviour) can be changed using "learn new keyboard assignment" in Logic.

It does need drivers. I installed it under MacOs Mojave, and it survived the upgrade to Catalina flawlessly. I see the manufacturer already made a driver for Big Sur available as well, so I feel quite confident I will be able to use it for a long time... (fingers crossed)

Amazing, but maybe a larger!
Rikki Blakk 05.10.2021
I have nothing bad to add on this product, sturdy and besides from the quirk that before first use you need to read the manual to figure out why it's blinking - the documentation says it's preconfigured to run in Studio One mode, but that actually is not the case - you need to select that when it's started the first time. A little confusion and studying the details in the manual solved it really quickly, but I had expected Studio One to be default and run out of the box!

Besides from this tiny detail, it's a really nice controller. I consider getting the Faderport-8 though, to get more of the faders and knobs.

I
Rocks with Studio One
Ian84 11.09.2021
If you hate using a mouse for everything in your DAW, don’t have the space for a large control surface or need a portable solution, you’re looking at the right device. It’s solidly built, colourful when used in darker environments, its motorised fader great and a must for any serious work, and with the Link button you can even use it for plugins with the rotary knob.

I tried it with Reaper which is doable but finicky. Fortunately it comes with Studio One Artist and it works beautifully with that. The integration is solid: you can control most of the DAW with it.
