Support for PreSonus FaderPort V1

The PreSonus FaderPort V1 is a hardware control surface device that connects to your computer via USB, delivering transport and mixing control. You can use the device to start and stop audio playback and recording, adjust volume with the motorized fader, control pan, and automation. All functions happen in real time along with other functions.

For more information, see PreSonus FaderPort V1.


Note: Audition does not support the FaderPort 8 device.

To use FaderPort V1 with Audition, follow these steps:

Support for Mackie HUI

You can use HUI communications protocol to interface between the audio control surface and Adobe Audition. The protocol allows Audition and a connected hardware control surface to synchronize the states of their faders, buttons, jog wheels, and displays.


Note: Support for control surfaces that emulate HUI depends on the device’s implementation of the protocol.

To connect your HUI-compatible device with Audition, follow these steps:

  1. Select Edit > Preferences > Control Surface (Windows) or Adobe Audition CC > Preferences > Control Surface (MAC).

  2. In the Preferences dialog box, click Add

  3. In the Add Control Surface dialog box, select HUI.

    Add control surface
    Add control surface

  4. To adjust settings, click Settings

  5. To restrict control surface controls to the control strips, enable the Use Only Channel Strips check box. To allow assignment to application commands via the Control Surface Button Assignments dialog, the user-defined buttons are still enabled for the device.

  6. If you want to display SMPTE frame rates only as the time base displayed on the device, enable the Restrict Time Code to SMPTE check box. If this check box is selected, Bar and Beats, Decimal, Compact Disc, and Custom is not displayed on the control surface.
