I actually went down and bought a faderport, and then realized that you can only automate volume, mute and panning. Really, Presonus: would it take that many resources to hire a programmer to fix the firmware and code Logic bundle that enables all the Faderport functions? The mistake I was making was that after downloading and running the latest software download for faderport for mac from caderport Presonus website Faderport Installer — V — Mac. The buttons are slightly stiff though. But - and this is something to watch out for - when Logic gets updated again Logic Pro 9. I haven't tried reprogramming any buttons yet, maybe that could fix the problems.

Once you have done this you may find that you need to open up logic pro in 32 bit mode first, then close it down and open it up in 64 bit mode. We are still working on qualifying Logic X at this point. There's a bundle in the support site too, but a friend of mine installed it and now the fader controls the Pan instead of the Volume. There's nothing like it in the market believe me, I've searched! Faderport is an incredible product. I've just updated to Logic Pro X.

Currently, the Link button is there solely for the benefit of Studio One users, and allows the encoder to adjust any control knob that you click on with your mouse. Your faderport should now work using Logic Pro 9 in 32 bit mode. There is a file called Faderport. I am Sir Melvis Bacon, Knight of BaconHam Palace.
I've downloaded and pasted Faderport. I also downloaded the Logic 64 bit bundle driver and my fader port works with my logic pro 9 running in 64 bit mode. This is an important function, and renders the Faderport useless. I messed around with different control surfaces and tried changing the setups and had no success. To change between 64 bit and 32 bit mode close down logic. In the Setup window, go to New Install… Please Note: If the FaderPort is already present in the control surface environment, your FaderPort is ready to use. This is where I already was.
Logic Pro Help Right-click on logic pro in your applications folder. I am pretty upset about this state of affairs. I originally had the FaderPort for Logic Pro 8 and it really didn't work very well - the fader was quite jerky and the buttons would work sporadically. To add your software and hardware specs to your signature to make it easier for us to help you, click. The other buttons are what they are. Faderport shows as a control surface.
Thanks for your post, very useful to get the Faderport working. In sum: I have been impressed with the recent performance of my FaderPort. As I mentioned above, once the latest update was released, my FaderPort has never worked better. Your FaderPort is now ready to use. Here's the link to the presonus website for Faderport Installer - V135 - Mac: If you unwittingly upgrade the firmware in your faderport by mistake simply download the original version of faderport drivers and firmware: Faderport 1. It works exactly the way I expect it to work now. Two sets of eight buttons reside above and below the encoder with two more buttons to the sides.
So far I was asked to take a video, then clear the midi devices and now I'm asked to use studio one to try to reproduce. Dec 19, 1: Your FaderPort is now ready to use. I think 99 bucks would be worth it, as mine has come in handy already. Any one experience this and have any solutions? Installation in Logic Pro X is a total nightmare. I needed to do a firmware update on the review model and it worked seamlessly.
I would imagine that a competent programmer could sort this pretty quickly. If they are selling these so cheap-it kind of makes you wonder whats next from PreSonus or some other manufacturer. I hope we don't need to start a change. Around 50 percent longer than the original FaderPort, this FaderPort is only a fraction wider and has a similar button count, though a rotary encoder with integral push switch has been added. We've also gone through the manual to make sure we didn't miss anything.
I also strongly advise to use a utility like MenuMeters free Install, open System Preferences and open the panel to configure. Often the fader won't cause any volume changes or pan - if in flip mode at all. The addition of the encoder is very welcome and greatly extends the usefulness of the controller. However, there is one thread on faddrport Presonus Forum I found very helpful. I asked my friend and fellow Faderport user he's the one that convinced me to buy it to do all the updates and report here. Many logic functions are not working or are working intermittently.
