Motorised Fader solution for CC's

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a little PreSonus Fader port. (Original) It is great! It has a motorised single fader that I use for doing automation for track volume. One if its limitations however is, it ONLY works for Logic track Volume (I'm talking about the fader not the pan etc).

I am after a similar fader that I can assign for a track's CC automation. Say example CC11 or CC1. I certainly know how to assign a fader to those CC's but I'm looking for a solution where the track's CC automation is then sent back to the motorised fader so I can "tweak" it whilst it is moving.

Any suggestions out there?

Currently I use two sliders on my controller keyboard which work fine BUT they are not motorised.

Looking for a simple CC solution that works the same was as the PreSonus Faderport for track volume.


Thanks team,

Yup just check it out again. It certainly works but is only one way,.....I'm trying to get the motorised Fader to respond to the Automation data. Make sense? I can write it using the fader but it doesn't send the automation back to the fader (It records the data and plays it back to the plugin as expected)

I have a Behringer X-Touch One Universal Control Surface. It's pretty similar to Faderport but has a few more bells and whistles which is why I got it. I don't have it turned on right now but I do recall I can assign the fader to any automation lane I want, including midi cc, and when in read or latch mode it will respond in real time.

My only qualm with it is the motorized fader is a bit loud for my tastes, but hey, it was cheap, is what it is. Not a dealbreaker but if you're listening back to a mix, especially a dynamic mix with quiet sections, hearing the fader can be a bit distracting haha. But perhaps it would work for you.
