You may want to check out, CME, Studiologic, Novation, or Akai's weighted options....I think you will be waiting for a long time for Presonus to come out with a keyboard. Unless they outsource, a keyboard is an entirely different set of "know-how" and innovation. Thre are many keyboards out there, but most aren't worth purchasing. I personally only use fully weighted and have a CME, which is pretty good, but not nearly as nice in it's feel as Studiologics. I truly wish Novation and M-audio would come out with fully weighted models...or Korg for that matter.

That really helped! Thanks for the advice C.

Any possibility to have a Presonus controller for Studio One which is in same league as Euphonix MC Control and MC Mix? Or maybe some arrangement between Euphonix and Presonus to make MC control support Studio One too?

Glad some of my mistakes could be of use

My Controller rundow..

88 key action - Studio Logic (Close second CME)
Controller Setup/Software - Novation (Followed by M-Audio)
CME - Apple driver works fine, PC driver always was a little finicky

All the other keyboards that I like do not come in 88 key...I havn't tried the Akai yet, so you may want to demo that one as well. The software for Akai has had some issues with those using it...looks almost like a perfect setup though.

you know what would be cool
if they can make a controller that would be a perfect mixing controller

ex.
the controller should have a display, and whenever you select a fader it should display all the plugins that are on that track/fader and allow you to manipulate them, select which plugin you are editing/automating. the rotary controllers can be illuminated and touch sensitive like NI's kore controller has, and every rotary knob should have a little display that states the parameter name from the plugin you are automating.

And please, please, please, if there is such a controller, integrate this into Studio One with Copperlan. I've been looking at this for the past couple of days and it is a great solution for communication.

Unfortunately integrating at this level is not what Midi (both CC and NRPN ) has been developed for and lacks the resolution that analog gear has. That's why in most cases the midi controller feel disconnected from the plugins.

But that's just my two pennies...

If you're interested in copperlan, go to http://www.copperlan.org

Something between the faderport and the Studio Live, dedicated controller for S1.

I record live in small spaces and suggest STRONGLY that any new control surface like FaderPort use QUIET buttons. I cannot use my FaderPort on location because each button press to Record is loud enough to be heard at the beginning of each take. And if not, it is distracting to the artists performing.

It makes no sense for recording controls to make audible noise (even in the studio).

I just tried to post this but something went wrong and it vanished, so please excuse me if a similar post shows up somewhere a second time.

Whatever Presonus chooses to build, please use QUIET push buttons. I record live in small spaces and I cannot use my Faderport on location because the Record button is loud enough to be heard at the beginning of a take. The transport button presses are distracting to the performers, they think I am recoding and they jump the gun. It's bad. Please use silent, good tactile feedback buttons.

I would love to have a small left/right spring loaded joy stick for playback head motion. The farther you move it, the faster the head moves backward or forward. Or maybe a dedicated jog wheel would be nice.

I'm in the market right now for some sort of Mixer controller for Studio One. I'd love to see something like the fader port with more faders,and knobs..

A bit more sleek and updated looking would fit the bill.. I do like the way the Euphonix controllers look,but they are a bit more then I would like to spend.

Yeah, I had a terrible experience with the Korg 64 working with Logic. It was suppose to integrate easily..However!*?.... The Studio One is suppose to adapt
easily to whatever hardware you have. And it is said to be one step ahead of midi. If so do I use my midi connections or my firewire. Firewire would be great but
the question arises once again , which addition?. So far what I've seen just tapping it with my mouse is really encouraging. The effect, virtual instrument ,whatever is
right there on my screen. And having a 24" screen comes in handy when you're working with a couple of pages at the same time. The first question should
be is "What am I planning to do with the controller ie. as a mixer controller. effects controller, virtual instruments controller. I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible
with the most information available right there in front of me first hand. I have old synths with midi outs and the latest pad controllers but I'm looking for a controller
that will give me keys, pads, sliders and knobs as I don't know what all I need now much less whatever software instrument I'll obtain in the future and what is
best to control it . So right now I'm thinking about the M-Audio Axiom Pro 61. It runs around $560. I'll be asking my sales rep at Sweetwater Music about it on
this weekend and hope to have a reply sometime on Monday. He's an old fart like myself and is knowledgable about most stuff and what he don't know he asks
someone. The ego of asking has been kicked out of him by life, which is one of the better things to have kicked out of you. If anyone has any idea on other
options for controllers and about what hook-up machines provide let me know. I'll be back at this forum on Monday or Tuesday the 1st or 2nd of Nov. to see if
anyone's come up with any useful info. Best of Luck to all. C. Terry Rodgers.

I just hope that presonus continue to develop more specific control surface templates for f1
I'm using a tascam fw 1082 and when I tried it with S1 I had limited success with mackie control mode, so many buttons and encoders were redundant

Well after trying a few things i have decided to finally build myself a control console for studio one, at least if i build one then i know its going to be exactly what i want and need.

I may or may not go with the motorised fader route I am not sure as of yet as i have a massive amount of alps 100mm throw faders that i can use for this and plenty of encoders etc.

I am thinking of a control console with a minimum of 24 faders a suite of encoders above each fader, mmc transport control section, mtc display a full suite of user definable function buttons, a monitoring section, and meter bridge. as long as studio one can use the full HUI suite of functions i can also adapt that into the system also for a hybrid console.

My last project took a few months to build and it is now the only hardware version of Motu's BPM


I will keep you updated as i go along, i have already tested a bank of faders and encoders with studio one along with the mmc functions, I am hoping to hear back from thomas soon about some ideas i had nd see if they can be added to the software.
mac pro 8-core, mac mirror door dp, graphite g4 400.
Motu 2408/24io interfaces, PT HD, Event opals, Focal twin 6.
Too many synths to mention!

Yamah 02r chained consoles, Audient asp 24 - 36 console.
