Recommendations for a Fader box?

Hey all,

Thinking to invest in a fader box, to control and record on the fly modulation and expression mostly. What would you recommend? I really need a small box as I am travelling quite often, 2 faders will do!

Im curious too so thought I would try to find out too, here are some I found so far that may work? I think you have to assign one of the knobs or faders to work for modulation.

Hey @RomainQuessaudJSZ!

I use the Faderport/PreSonus. It’s working great with S1, but should work with other DAWs too, as far as i know. It’s a great build / solid stuff. Give it a try, i believe that you will love it.

Kind regards,

Thanks a lot guys! I have to have a think about it, they all look great, but I think at the moment I’m more looking at a super compact/small gear. I’m often on the move and already don’t have much space left in my bags! Was thinking something more like Palette Gear type of DIY fader boxes.

like this?

Ohhh. That looks great, but do you think I can use this strictly as a midi fader box? (while still having an other audio interface?) I mean, could be another option to just swipe it and have it all in one

I’m thinking yes because it functions like a mixer, so yeah should work? You can assign which device you want used as an audio interface instead of this one I believe.
