Midi CC support as added Fader Mode.

asked Apr 16 in FaderPort 8 Feature Requests by adityapushkarna (250 points)
If and when can we expect the faderport 8 to send midi cc via the faders in mackie control mode. I bought the product for the sole reason to control my modulation and expression via motorized faders. Its quite a let down honestly to buy something so nice and not being able to use it because a standard expected feature is not in there.

This feature request needs some clarification. MCU is a pre-defined specification with it's own mapping. We do support MCU mode as one of the three supported modes of operation. 

FaderPort 8 Modes

See Section 2.1 of the FP8 User Guide for more information. 

User Guides are free (without need for registration) from product download pages, this way you can do your research before making a purchase to learn about the intended design and use. 

We do believe what you are asking for is the ability to assign your own CC values to customize the FaderPort to act as a Universal MIDI Controller which IS a GREAT feature request!

Fully agree to this request. Having Modulation, Expression, etc. on the faders would mean a perfect feature for all who are massively using sample libraries.
