“The more you use it, the more you'll love it.”
Scott McChane, Tape Op, May 2017
“...quite easily the slickest ‘hardware controller meets software for the first time’ incident I’ve witnessed.”
Andy Jones, MusicTech, March 2018
“Using the faders to write aux send and plug-in automation is a beautiful thing.”
Barry Cleveland, EM, July 2017
“If you’re looking for a control surface to improve your tracking and mixing workflow without breaking the bank, this should be high on your list.”
Jason Buchwald, MusicPlayers.com, July 2017
“Unter dem Strich ein tolles Stück Hardware.”
Axel Latta, Sound & Recording, July 2017
“Die absolut unkomplizierte Bedienung und Automation von Parametern virtueller Instrumente per Fader ist nur eines von vielen Details, die den Faderport aus meiner Sicht zu einem Must-have für Studio One User macht.”
Felix Klostermann, Bonedo, July 2018
“Die Bedieneinheit wartet mit einem mächtigen Toolset auf, ohne überfrachtet oder kompliziert zu wirken.”
Sebastian Lesch, Professional Audio, July 2017

“The PreSonus FaderPort 8 is leading the charge of brands that seek to bring truly “flying” faders to the hands of the everyman audio engineer.”
John Jagos, Sonicscoop, May 2017
“There’s no question the FaderPort 8 is enormous bang for buck, and entirely justifiable as a control surface for non-Presonus DAWs. I’d get one just for the quality faders and no-fuss automation workflow. But if you really want to see this thing in all it”
Preshan John, Audio Technology, March 2017
Barry Rudolph, New Toys, February 2017
“This is a great unit that feels at home on any desktop, no matter what computer setup you are running.”
