Dont forget that the faderport can still be used in conjunction with a mouse and qwerty keyboard. It is not designed to replace them really.

With regard to externel midi tracks if you need to mute that then do it with the mouse or keyboard shortcut.

Here is question though. Can the faderport still be used to write automation eg volume on an external midi/instrument track?

For the op: I'm heartened that the legend and legacy of Alfred E. Neuman (the goofy head in his avatar) lives on in Norway of all places. I can't tell you how many times Mad Magazine cracked me up between the ages of 7-14, not that I'm any more mature now.

Regarding the Faderport, I would think the device would earn its keep for anyone who writes a lot of automation even if it did nothing else. I don't have one, but the people I know who do say it's kinda like the Monitor Station, you don't know you needed one until you get one -- then you wonder how you lived without it.

Yeah, but everything's funny when you're stoned at that age.

He he

Thank you all for chiming in. I may be closer to getting a Faderport.
But I think PreSonus could make some better documentation for it.

Better yet, they could make something along the lines of the Behringer X-Touch (8 + 1 Master fader).

This is my first post although I've been a watcher for about a year. I have only been using Studio One (Version 2.6.2) for about 2 weeks and I love it so far, but have been wondering about faderport's uses as well. After reading this, I believe I understand that it can be used as long as my VSTi are dragged from my browser over to the tracks, but if I have Motif Rack (for example) then I can't use it? My VSTi instruments include Superior Drummer 2.3.1 and Absynth 5. Studio One is Awesome and I love the work flow, and would like to integrate a Faderport into the mix (no pun intended!). Does anyone run into problems with it being only USB 1.1? I've read where it doesn't work on USB 3.0 ports which isn't a problem but have any of you noticed a big lag time with your other USB items?



I have a mox6 that I use with S1 no problems. That keyboard has a usb audio system built in but I have no use for it. But I had to install the drivers for that then it did the midi too.

So basically it's an external synth that I can use and a keyboard input. It also has a VSTi editor to control the keyboard which works.

The incoming audio track from the mox can be controlled with the fader port no problem.

I don't think the faderport suffers from being an older device. It's still just midi so it's really low bandwidth and remaking it in USB3 would have no effect on its performance. These are facts, that I've pulled completely out of my .. ah, I mean the AIR, that's it.

So much for your Faderport question. Now for the important stuff: I have to ask -- did they actually translate Mad into Norwegian or does the entire land of the fjords and cool blue waters speak English?

So couple the immaturity that keeps so many forum members young with mankind's progress amping up the THC percentages in a wild and wacky assortment of edibles and medibles and it's a wonderful world we live in. Just think what can be accomplished with the tasty tandem of dabs [80% THC for those of you who don't reside in Denver] and Bitwig. You could record something easily as good as Are You Experienced ... while you have left your body.

I don't care about the Faderport as long as you give me 10 copies of MAD
Back in the days, from memory, they tried a norwegian version alongside the english one. But as humour can be difficult to translate, me and others ended up with reading the english version.

And yes, the entire land of the fjords and cool blue waters speak English
When I was a kid we started our formal english training at the age of 10, but today I think the school kids start when they are 7.

Proper Oxford English plus american films and TV-shows, makes scandinavian english its own style I guess

PS. I may look into a Faderport, MAD as I am

Good to know. I think we're all practicing our comedy chops while we wait for the dramatic release of 3.0.
