When I move faders 9-16 on the Faderport 16, FL Studio does not respond, and there is no indication that the DAW is receiving midi messages from those faders.  Faders 1-8 work as expected including pan, solo/ mute.  If I change the bank on the Faderport to access inserts 9-16 on FL Studio, then I can control inserts 9-16 using the first 8 Faderport faders.

When setting up the FaderPort 16 as an MCU device you will need to set up Port 1 as a Mackie MCU device and Port 2 will need to be setup as a Mackie MCU Extender. Depending on the DAW you may need to setup the ports in reverse for the channels to show in the correct order on the FaderPort 16.

Unfortunately FL Studio does not currently support Mackie extenders, is there some other work-around?
