Faderport request: ability to change default MIDI CC channel assignments on faders

+22 votes
asked Nov 20, 2020 in FaderPort Series Feature Requests by bastiaanmarcscholtemeijer (1,650 points)
With the Faderport in MIDI mode the faders are assigned a default MIDI CC channel mapping (1, 11, 7, 10, 5, 84, 2, 16 - for faders 1 to 8 on a Faderport 8, for example).

It would be very useful to be able to change a fader's default MIDI channel assignment.

For example: change the default MIDI channel 10 for fader 4 to 23 (or any other user defined channel). This would allow a lot of flexibility with VSTi's, especially those for which we can not use Control Link - as some VSTi's do not provide a visual element (knobs or sliders) to link to (EastWest Hollywood Strings, VSL libraries.. ).

Please! This would be a well received update and I would get much more use out of faderport 8 in midi mode...I would much prefer to use the faderport with similar functionality in midi mode as my korg nanokontrol 2, where I have customized to work with my spitfire libraries (expression, dynamics, controlling different mic positions, etc.).

Hi there!

Such a great device, the Faderport, -I am just testing one out, -it would be an easy purchase decision if I could change the MIDI CC values to my liking, I unfortunately cant work well with the pre-baked assignments.

Presonus, please make those adjustable.

Yes! Please allow user definition for CC numbers in Faderport 8 & 16! This would be a great addition!!

This feature is preventing me purchasing and pushing me and many other users that use orchestral libraries via kontakt away from the faderport.
Many other controllers allow midi user CC mapping, but they do not allow changing modes without restarting the device.
Being able to assign a user defined  CC to each fader and being able to switch between DAW and midi mode on the fly, would make this device perfect for many users..
