Any and all GUI-initiated actions can be driven with by pressing this button on its own, or with a “long” press.
Pressing the “Shift” button while turning the knob will alter the width setting. To connect the Faderport to Ardour, open the Preferences dialog, and then click on “Control Surfaces”.
This avoids getting into a tricky situation where it is no longer apparent what is being controlled and what will happen if you try to change it. Bank The “Bank” button is currently not used by Ardour. Also used in combination with the Rewind button to “return to zero”.

Stop Stops the transport. Click on the “Enable” button in the line that says “Faderport” in order to activate Ardour’s Faderport support. If pressed while also holding the Shift button, the playhead will move to the session end marker.
While the transport is fdaerport, touching the fader will initiate recording all fader changes until the fader is released.
The button will be lit if the track is record-enabled. As of the end ofyou should avoid USB3 ports—these cause erratic behaviour with the device. Undo Causes the last operation carried out in the editor to be undone. We note this detail to avoid speculation about whether Ardour supports the device via the HUI protocol—it does not.
Then double click on the line that says “Faderport”. Ardour uses the Faderport in what Presonus calls “native” mode. When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, this will move the playhead to the next marker. If pressed while also holding the Stop button, the playhead will return to the zero position on the timeline. Output Pressing the Output button causes the Faderport to control the fader, pan, mute and solo settings of the Master bus.
When pressed on its own, starts the transport moving faster than normal.
The knob can also be turned while the “User” button is held, in order to modify the input gain for the currently controlled track. If there is no selected track or bus, the controls will do nothing. A new dialog will open, containing among other things two dropdown selectors that will allow you to identify the MIDI ports where your Faderport is connected.
Successive presses speed up the “rewind” behaviour. Once you select the input and output port, Ardour will initialize the Faderport and it will be ready to use.
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. You do not need to use the power supply that comes with the Faderport but without it, the fader will not be motorized. 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. The Faderport’s controls can be divided into three groups: If pressed while also holding the Shift button, the playhead will move to the session start marker.
Using the PreSonus FaderPort
Using the Faderport The Faderport’s controls can manua, divided into three groups: Loop When pressed on its own, this toggles loop playback. This is a compact control surface featuring a single motorized fader, a single knob encoder and 24 buttons with fixed labels.
If pressed while the transport is already rolling at normal speed, causes the playhead to jump to the start of fderport last “roll” and continue rolling “Poor man’s looping”. Existing automation data will be left unmodified fadsrport any fader changes, and will not be used for controlling gain.
Fast Forward When pressed on its own, starts the transport moving faster than normal. Play Starts the transport. The Mix, Proj, Trns buttons do not obviously correspond any particular functions or operations in Ardour. This makes the overall experience of using the Faderport much less satisfactory, since the fader will not move when Ardour tells it to, leading to very out-of-sync conditions between the physical fader position and the “fader position” inside the program.
It is a relatively low-cost device that functions very well to faderporf a single selected track or bus, along with a variety of other “global” settings and conditions. This maual might get fixed by Presonus in the future. However, all possible actions are there, so keep looking!
When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, it causes the most recent undone operation to be re-done.
