PreSonus Faderport 8

Post by andrik » Wed Oct 18, 2017 5:20 am

Hi,

I use Auria pro and I have the opportunity to buy a Faderport 8 controller for a reasonable price.
I've searched this forum for some confirmation if it works well with Auria pro.

I have seen a post suggesting it 'should' work and that Presonus is testing (way back in january) but I couldn't find any post saying that it really DOES work!
So, has anybody tried it, does it work?

thanks in advance and best regards,

Andrik

This was PreSonus's response about the Faderport 8 last I heard from them a few months ago:

"After discussing with the product team on this, iOS was not an intended support platform for FaderPort 8. We may consider it as part of a future update. It is unsupported at this time"

The faderport was never introduced as an Auria controller. In fact it was me who figured it out and began using it and I led many to use it today. The fact that Presonus says that its not intended for Auria that means that they have not tested things like page changes scrolling editing functions ect. I use the Mackie MCU Pro and it too doesnt do what you can fully do with a daw but it still works. I guarantee that it will control all 9 faders and will scroll to new banks of 8 and will solo mute rec engage edit view mixer view automation of faders but not the pan as that has never worked with HUI or MCU control in Auria and you may even be able to call up the FX and control them. You will have to figure it out for yourself as Auria does not supply you with a layout for any of its HUI or MCU control. Not even for the tested MCU Pro. Cheers.

Hello Andrik , just seen your post .just to let you know that after using the original faderport for sometime , I decided to go for the faderport8 with an iPad Pro12inch and iconnect4 Audio interface which seems to work very well together.you just have to make sure that you complete a firmware upgrade with the faderport 8 before you do anything else so that it works with Hui protocol.Been using for couple of months now for mixing and laying down tracks-with motorized faders working both ways .As Anthony mentioned -not all the functions work the same as if you had studio one Daw for example but that was my expectation before I decided to purchase, and also from the previous information and advice given from Anthony on a previous post which gave me the push to go for it.( thanks Anthony! ) .It is a compromise but I think still a good one.( check out Anthony's previous post on the mackie and faderport8 controller functions with Auria )

Hi Amahdigital, I have the exact same setup: 12.9 inch ipad pro and iconnect4 audio. So it's good to hear that it works well with the faderport 8.
Thanks for the info!

and thanks to Anthony as well!
