Fader calibration

Hi,

Is it possible to calibrate the fader position so that it is aligning with the "U" mark when the DAW fader is at zero?

The Faderport 2018 fader appears to need returning to the lowest point on a selected track , and then if you move it to '0' on the DAW fader, or 'U' on the Faderport fader, the DAW fader and the Faderport fader match position. When you first click on a track, and move to 'U' or '0' on either, they don't match ('0' on the DAW fader results in just below 'U' on the Faderport fader). It appears to need zeroing down the fader all the way before they match - if not my faderport fader is not exactly on 'U'. This may be some strange initial calibration issue which I will look into.

I presume this is what you mean by the DAW fader being at zero? Certainly this pulling down the fader all the way will then result in a more exact match between the two. Why they are initially out I am not sure.

That doesn't work for me: even if I set both faders at -inf then the DAW at zero, the Faderport still remains below U (at approx -2dB).

If I set both at -inf then the FP at U, then my DAW reads +1.6 dB.
