An extension module for the Faderport 8 would be great. Just the fader, M, S, Select and the scribble bar. Pop one either side of the main controller, 24 tracks. Sorted.
This would be such a great solution. The Faderport 1 as the main controller would be cool too... but I'm also considering it being a sort of modular "master section," like the sort of thing this person suggested:
I would like to see a modular system like Avid Artist Series, but with better faders and deeper integration into S1.
Dedicated REC on/off button and two endless encoders per channel.
I'd love to see a modular approach to Studio One control like this. The sort of "stuck in the box" approach to the individual Faderport products is what makes me hesitate to buy the larger formats. 8-fader extensions with a master section separate from the faders would be such a win.
And a huge bonus for adding more assignable encoders, especially if they can be mapped as an EQ interface.
