We have therefore allowed users to choose from a carefully curated set of possible actions that seem related to the button labels in some clear way. Transport Buttons The transport buttons all work as you would expect.
PreSonus FaderPort User Manual | 33 pages
If pressed while the transport is already rolling at normal speed, causes the playhead to jump to the start of the last “roll” and continue rolling “Poor man’s looping”. This avoids getting into a tricky situation where it is no longer apparent what is being controlled and what will happen if you try manuaal change it.
Existing automation data will be left unmodified by any fader changes, and will not be used for controlling gain. You do not need to use the power supply that comes with the Faderport but without it, the fader will not be motorized.
Using the PreSonus FaderPort
Stop Stops the transport. The transport buttons all work as you would expect. When pressed on its own, starts the transport moving faster than normal. When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, this moves the playhead to the previous Marker.
When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, this will move the playhead mqnual the next marker. When pressed on its own, starts the transport moving backwards. When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, it causes the most recent undone operation to be re-done. We note this detail to avoid speculation about whether Ardour supports the device via the HUI protocol—it does not. Successive presses speed up the “fast fadwrport behaviour.
If your session does not contain a Master bus, it does nothing. When pressed on its own, this toggles loop playback. While the transport is rolling, touching the fader will initiate recording all fader changes until the fader is released.
If pressed while also holding the Shift button, the playhead will move to the session end marker. Rewind When pressed on its own, starts the transport moving backwards.
Each button has 3 possible actions associated with it: Undo Causes the last operation carried out in the editor to be undone. Pressing the “Shift” button while turning the knob will alter the width setting. This makes the overall experience of using the Faderport much less satisfactory, since the fader will not manuual when Ardour tells it to, leading to very out-of-sync conditions between the physical fader position and fderport “fader position” inside the program.
Because the Faderport has only a single set of per-track controls, by default those controls operate on the first selected track or bus. The menu for selecting the action is somewhat confusing and it can be hard to find what you’re looking for.
The Mix, Proj, Trns buttons do not obviously correspond any particular functions or operations in Ardour. Mix Possible actions include: Output Pressing the Output button causes the Faderport to control the fader, pan, mute and solo settings of the Master bus. You only need do this once: This is a compact control surface featuring a single motorized fader, a single knob encoder and 24 buttons with fixed labels. Punch When pressed on its own, toggles punch recording. Then double click on the line that says “Faderport”.
If the Faderport is powered, changing the gain in Ardour’s GUI or via another control surface, or via automation, will result in the fader moving under its own control. Click on the relevant drop-down selector to pick an action as you prefer.
The Ardour Manual
This issue might get fixed by Presonus in the future. It is a relatively low-cost device that functions very well to control a single selected track or bus, along with a variety of other “global” settings and conditions.
You do not need to do anything to enable this—Ardour will set the device to be in the correct mode. Using the Faderport The Faderport’s controls can be divided into three groups: Also used in combination with the Rewind button to “return to zero”.
If there is no selected track or bus, the controls will do nothing. The Faderport’s controls can be divided into three groups: To connect the Faderport to Ardour, open the Preferences dialog, and then click on “Control Surfaces”. Bank The “Bank” button is currently not used by Ardour.
The knob can also be turned while the “User” button is held, in order to modify the input gain for the currently controlled track. Loop When pressed on its own, this toggles loop playback. Click on the “Enable” button in the line that says “Faderport” in order to activate Ardour’s Faderport support.
However, all possible actions are there, so keep looking! The Faderport will be automatically recognized by your operating system, and will appear in any of the lists of possible MIDI ports in both Ardour and other similar software.
If your session uses Ardour’s monitor section, you can use Shift-Output to assign it to the Faderport in the same way that Output assigns the Master bus. When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, this will create a new unnamed marker at the current playhead position.
