Hello. I am interested in purchasing the Faderport v2. But I need to know if I can configure the fader as a midi controller, i.e. assign it a midi controller like CC1, CC11, and all the others, to make it work as a modwheel or as expression, etc. I work with Cubase 10.5 Pro on Windows10. Thanks.

I have a solution to record Midi cc note expression with Faderport V2 and Cubase 11.
First of all, you have to disconnect as Mackie Control then go to the channel and put the PreSonus as midi input.
select the track
go to inspector
note expression
on the IN column select PITCH BEND (PB) for what you want to record, for instance, CC 11 Expression.
then you can record your midi CC with your fader. the bad news is you can't use other functionality of the faderport.

the problem is that Cubase identifies the fader of the faderport as Pitch Bend so you can't configure it in the generic device.

if anybody has a better solution, please let me know.
I Hope Presonus will update it soon to control midi cc with the fader.
