asked Jun 16, 2017 in FaderPort Series Feature Requests by tshadgett (2,160 points)
Would be great to have the Faderport follow the track selection in Studio One.

At the moment,if you select a channel with the FP8 navigation controls, both the FP and S1 will update, however,if I select a track with the mouse in S1, the FP does not bank across to view that selection also.

This already exists.  After selecting a channel with your mouse or the encoder,  just press the encoder.  It will reflect the selection and bank on the unit.

ArrowHead: thanks for pointing this out. However, I don't think that is quite what the request author is asking, which I understand is to have it done automatically (without having to press the encoder, in order to speed up the workflow). Having this as an option seems like a decent compromise to me.

Only if you are in Bank or Channel mode.  Any other mode you have to exit out of first.

I agree! The single faderport does this right? There should be a way to turn FOLLOW on/off. I was surprised to see that it didn't.

I agree, this should be an automatic thing, having to click the encoder seems unnecessary. Also, why can't the track event also be selected once the new track is selected? i find myself altering the parameters in the Inspector but the event on the other track i've just navigated away from is still selected meaning i edit the wrong event. This happened the other day when i was altering the event gain level, i selected my snare track with the Select on the Faderport, which it duly switched to but the event highlighted was still the kick drum.
