FaderPort 8 and FaderPort 16 General Discussion

Considering getting an fp8. I read that the knob by the transport can move the song at per measure resolution. Can this be changed to "per beat" instead of measure?

Everything I see always works at the measure, but I almost always prefer to move at the beat resolution.

Hmm. Bummer. I know it seems like a small thing, but for some reason, it matters a lot to me since this is one of the things I do most often when moving around projects.

I am trying to determine purchase order of some new things and this is somewhere on the list I think. I have a behringer bcf2000 that I just don't really use and I wonder if this won't have the Same fate for a guy who doesn't do a LOT and has this just as a hobby. The bcf2000 just sits there unused most of the time because it just doesn't do that much integrated.

Thoughts? Someone sell me or talk me out of it! 8-)

I have found that these forums are not very active. Anyone have any other thoughts about this or is everyone just so happy with them that they have no reason to discuss on a forum?

The faderport forum is visited from time to time. Just not as active as some other places. It a specific product section. The different products are pretty visible that way. You can start a post in the S1 general discussion forum, and it will eventually get moved to some relevant product place if you need better visibility, or a quick response. IMO, the Faderport input and feedback is pretty active.

For beat scrolling, I haven't had any need to dedicate a function for that, so I would scroll with the mouse over the beat field. But you probably do that now, and want to free up the mouse a bit. Nothing frees up a mouse entirely, so having the keyboard, and mouse near the faderport, are pretty practical. No beat control, but since you might purchase it, there's some good quick info there.

Other than that, there's a lot to like with the the Faderport 8/16. Check out some of Johnny Geibs videos (themuzik), as that will give you some insight. A quick and fairly thorough video is the one from Sweetwater Sound.

A lot of tride and true, typically PT and Mackie users wanted scrubbing, but it's not possible in Studio One, so don't feel too out in the cold not having beat scrolling from the faderport. Yet they stull purchased faderports. The advantages the FP's do have far outweigh the misses.

Too bad the FP8 doesn't scroll by beat, but if I find a way, I'll IM you.
