zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: My review is going to be a conflicted one, as I both love and resent the Faderport 8.Let's start with the good – the Fadeport 8 is built like a tank. The automated faders have a huge throw, and you can't help but feel awesome when you have this thing on your desk and the faders are flying as you work. Of all of the "budget" mix surfaces out there, the Faderport 8 is the best looking one of the bunch.Now onto the more neutral comments – I've owned the Faderport 8 for a little over a year now. And maybe it's because I never grew up mixing on a console, but I find the workflow not that intuitive. In my opinion, my Mac's keyboard and mouse are far faster. I was so much on the fence about this, that I ended up returning the FP8 to zZounds, rebought it, returned it AGAIN, and then bought it for a 3rd time. I know that sounds crazy, but it was a big question of actual usefulness versus the wow factor of the unit. Ultimately, the wow factor won out. But I still can't force myself to reach for the controller over the ease of the mouse.Now for the bad – the FP8 is marketed as a multi-DAW control surface. But over the last year, I've seen the FP8 go from working quite well with Logic Pro X to completely non-functioning. I also own PreSonus' Studio One, and the FP8 works just fine with PreSonus' software. But again, this thing is marketed to work across platforms. But as of now in November of 2019, just about all of the buttons fail to interact with Logic. If they do actually communicate their desired function to Logic, it's either super inconsistent, or the lag is huge. The Faders barely respond, or respond with dramatic lag onscreen. I've contacted PreSonus several times about the issue, and they're good about replying, but don't offer much in terms of remedies. Basically, "wait for the next firmware fix." Well after the latest firmware update a day or two ago claiming bug fixes, the FP8 is as bad as ever.I own several PreSonus devices now – the Quantum, Sceptres, Temblor, Monitor Station 2. All of which is fantastic. The Faderport 8 though, I cannot recommend at all, unless you're a Studio One user. But this failure to FP8 customers has me wondering if I should be swapping out my other PreSonus gear.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
