Proven Near-Universal DAW Controller Increases Productivity Eliminating ITB Production Frustrations

It’s the truth—users of the Presonus Faderport 8 are praising it for its intuitive DAW functions, and near seamless integration with several workstations, while eliminating production woes. 

Just check out what Joey from Texas had to say:


“I had no idea that my back muscles were pretzeled-up as bad as they were from mouse use. I would always get a knot or pinched nerve between my shoulder blade and spine. 


It's nice pushing, pulling, poking and twisting real buttons, faders and knobs. [The best part about the FP8 is the integration with S1-3.] You literally could almost get away with stuffing the mouse in a drawer.”  

–Joey K from Texas, January 11, 2017


Or check out what Martin Weeks says about Faderport 8’s influence on his production life,


“If you're like me you've done some kind of traditional recording in your career in a traditional environment. So, like me you're more comfortable with faders than a mouse…

By its intuitive use of banks, and transport buttons and effects control buttons, this device can:

•        speed up your work flow, 

•        make your edits much more precise, 

•        and allows for a more "real time" mixing/editing feel.

I've used midi keyboard controllers and they are nice but all too often I find myself frustrated with the reaching over to press buttons and then having to go back and edit channels and tracks one at a time.

This device will resolve all that, almost immediately.”

–Martin Weeks, Florida, December 8th, 2016

The Mixing Surface That Takes You to the Level Up Above, the Level Up Above

Aside from all of its workflow enhancing features (there’s a TON more we’ll talk about in a bit), the beautiful thing about the Faderport 8 is that it brings the essence of music back to your DAW based set up:

•        Enjoyment

Like Matty Trump says, 


“I feel the less visual we can be with music and the more we can focus with our ears, instead of our eyes, the better our mixes will be and the more musically creative we’ll be.”
