Does Faderport V2 (2018) work as intended with Logic Pro X?

My new Faderport v2  (2018) is not working as described in the FPv2 manual. Many logic functions are not working or are working intermittently. There is a significant amount of lag between moving the FP fader and response in Logic. Often the fader won't cause any volume changes (or pan - if in flip mode) at all.

Any one experience this and have any solutions?

Hi, please make sure that you have installed the latest firmware by downloading PreSonus' Universal Control software. Once updated, press and hold the "Next" button while powering on, then press the flashing "Mute" button to enter the Logic operation mode. It is possible that you are still in the default "Studio One" operation mode.

I have the latest firmware installed, I'm in Logic operation mode and have the same problems with my Faderport v2.

In "flip mode" both the fader and the jog wheel control the Pan, instead of flipping their roles.
The "Link" and both "Lock" buttons appear to have no functionality at all, which is fine, but those aren't assignable either.
The default setting for the "Bypass" button doesn't work and new assigned functions have been ignored completely so far.

That makes too many buttons completely unusable.

It didn't work with older firmware versions but is there anything I have to do (reset anything on the Faderport or in Logic) after a firmware update to make it work properly now, if those errors were addressed in the latest update?

Hi Joe,

I have exactly the same issue.

So far I was asked to take a video, then clear the midi devices and now I'm asked to use studio one to try to reproduce...

For me it is mainly the zoom function working randomly. removing the controller from Logic a few times helps to fix the issue for the session.
