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!

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.


Rocks with Studio One

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.


Solid build quality, Good for most common DAW

Thomann delivered this product very quickly as usual, no problems here.
I’m using it with pro tools in HUI mode, it works well even though the PT limitations in terms of plugin automation with control surface is a big let down. But it’s not this controller fault, it’s avid locking their system on purpose. All basic features of the faderport works well, that a great experience.

I’m using also it with studio one, integration is seamless, perfect combo. It couldn’t be better !

I’m using it on reaper too, now reaper supports it in native mode which is cool, but a lot of buttons just do nothing, I hope the reaper devs could add the other features on this interface, especially for controlling the plugins.

I didn’t try Logic but the overall feedback seem great.

I recommend it, because it’s much faster and precise to work on mixing the motorized fader and it looks sturdy.
