PreSonus Intros FaderPort 16 Motorized Control Surface

PreSonus has announced the FaderPort 16, the latest model in its FaderPort control surface series.

The FaderPort 16 Mix Production Controller connects via USB 2.0 and offers tactile control over your DAW’s mix and automation functions, including transport control.

The FaderPort 16 features full level, solo, and mute control over 16 channels at once, with 16 touch-sensitive, motorized, 100 mm faders, and 89 buttons covering 102 different functions.

Support for the Mackie Control and HUI protocols means you can control virtually any DAW. No driver installation is necessary; just plug the control surface into a USB port.

Pricing and Availability

The FaderPort 16 is expected to be available at PreSonus dealers in late November 2017, with a street price of about $1,000. See the PreSonus site for more info.
