Finally got my Faderport working with S1 under Win XP SP3 using a USB hub for the connection.
Odd thing, through a direct link to any of the onboard usb connectors it didn't show up
as a send to/receive from device in S1. Just as a hint for anybody facing the same problem...
ONLY, THE FOOTSWITCH FEATURE IS NOT WORKING. It does not toggle Record? Anybody checked this too?

The foot switch works just fine. You need to make sure the foot pedal you use is a "Normally Open" contact.

Hi Rmwagner,

I had this same issue before and needed to download and install the latest Faderport driver 1.3.5 located at:

http://www.presonus.com/technical-support/downloads/drivers-software/

This fixed my footswitch issue.

Good luck!

Unfortunately the driver will not install under Win XP. The firmware updater says ' no Faderport device found'. The problem seems to be, that the FP installs itself as a standard USB audio device, not by it's actual name. Found that in another thread. So, it's usable but the firmware won't install. Unless you have an idea?

Pricipally, you plug a switch (normally open) with a TS or TRS connector into the rear inpiut labaled 'Footswitch' and you should be able to toggle the record function of your DAW (in my case S1) to e.g. do punch in recording. But according to a previous post, this requires the current firmware/driver 1.3.5 which will not install on my Win XP SP3 system. All the other functions are usable without the firmware update...

Hi Rmwagner,

I believe I had to uninstall the faderport software first, then reinstall 1.3.5. What version of the software did you install? Was it from the Installation CD or from the website?

Hope it helps,

John

thanks, mate! just figured out myself by turning the thing round by 180 degrees - didn't notice the jack at all - until now...

Hi when you say "Normally Open" is that the same single latching? I'm looking to get this one: Rocktron Velocity Single Footswitch. Thanks!
