My Faderport is having issues with smoothness of the faders. It's a bit hard to describe, and had contacted Support before, thought I'd give a shout out again.....heres what I've diagnosed:

The FP when turned on, demonstrates smooth silky faders.

When the Studio One Pro is turned on and linked, I get inconsistently a "Glitch" or a "Catch" (like there is a "burr" on the slides) never at the same place on the slide. Try different banks, channels, same. If I push hard, sometimes it doesn't do it, like I said , inconsistent. I am running the new Mac Mini running Mojave.

Changed connection cables several time, now using a USB-C wire.

Updated the UC Control Software, and Faderport software recently.

I tried it on my older Mac Mini and had no issues, it seemed.

It doesnt seem to alter the sound on the DAW, but it's irritating as heck.

Anyone got any suggestions?

I'm having the same problem with my newly purchased Faderport 16 .... some faders are smooth while random faders will want to ' fight ' or grab while I'm moving the fader... even jumping after I've released the fader after moving it.... very frustrating as it appears its been a problem for a while... I also have a Softube Console Fader 1 and its smooth as smooth...
