After a lot of research if PreSonus Faderport v2 (2018) would work with Audition (under Windows 10 or anything else) I found NOTHING really telling me if it does or not, it's like this subject is avoided online for some reason lol...so, I took a leap of faith and I bought it anyway and give it a try first hand...just got it a couple of days ago (today is October 8th, 2020) and I tried to connect it to Audition but it seemed hopeless to get it to communicate and work properly, but I didn't give up on it just yet and I kept searching for an answer and found a guy being able to connect it to Premiere Pro, not my model but the 8 channel one using Mackie protocol connection, so I tried it out...this is what I did in this order:
1. Faderport v2
- turn on while holding down the Next arrow looking right button (to change the Operation Mode) and those top buttons led up and I pressed the Mute button which is MCU (Logic) > now the PreSonus FP2 is in Logic (mackie) protocol mode. - I think you only have to do this once and then it'll stay like that, hopefully lol
- before opening Audition I did all the settings from point 1 above in Faderport v2 and left it on, then opened up Audition (I have Adobe Creative Cloud Suite which is up to date today 10/8/20) and I went to Edit > Preferences > Control Surface > added a device under Device Class > chose Mackie > click Settings (or double click the Mackie once added under Device Class then click Settings) > on the Configure Mackie Control window click Add > on the smaller ConfigureMackie Control window that opens up under Device Type chose Mackie Control, under MIDI Input Device choose PreSonus FP2 (or something like that - it should show up in there if the PreSonus Faderport is on and connected to your computer), under MIDI Output Device choose PreSonus FP2 (same with input MIDI) > click OK > OK > OK > OK and at some point the fader on Presonus should move meaning that it somehow communicated with Audition.
This way I was able to use it with Audition and here you have a youtube of this guy showing the basic functionality of the PreSonus Faderport V2:
I was able to use it with Audition like the guy in the youtube video (I only tried the basic functionality - I mean all the buttons on it and shift + buttons to see if they do what they say) with small exceptions like when the Marker is pressed the Next or Prev buttons won't go to the markers and I just got a footswitch (M-Audio SP 2 Universal Sustain Pedal) to use it with PreSonus FP2 but I wasn't able to get it to work it, I might but I just didn't yet...I'm fairly new to Audition and I might be missing stuff here and there, but in a few words it will work with Audition under mackie protocol...there might be better ways to connect it and get a full functionality out of it but I haven't tried them all yet.
