The Faderport 16 gets rid of all the hassle of driver installation and lets you plug in and get straight to mixing. A variety of customised Mackie Control modes come available for Logic, Cubase, Sonar, and native support for more applications coming in the future. With Mackie Control Universal and HUI protocols the Presonus Faderport 16 is virtually compatible with any DAW including Pro Tools and Live. However, the customised MCU modes for current DAWs are created to better optimise the user experience for these DAWs.

When used with Presonus' award-winning Studio One, the Faderport 16 opens up to a range of features including bypassing all plug-ins with one button push, opening the channel editor and enabling your faders to control each channel's custom macro, and using the control link so you can use the pan/param encoder to follow your mouse.
