As great as DAWs are, it's a drag to control the transport and create fades and automation with a mouse.
Touch your music.
Most musicians prefer a real fader and transport controls that they can touch.
That's why we created the FaderPort, which connects to your computer via USB and delivers complete transport controls for fast and efficient recording, along with a high-quality, touch-sensitive, motorized fader for writing fades and automation.
Great feel for perfect fades and smooth automation.
Feel is crucial when you're spending countless hours recording and mixing. So the ultra-affordable FaderPort features the same high quality, touch-sensitive, long-throw, motorized Alps fader that is found in expensive control surfaces and digital mixing consoles. With its 1,024-step resolution and dual-servo drive-belt motor, the response will be smooth and seamless.
Compatible with virtually all major DAW programs, the FaderPort enables you to record perfect fades and write single-channel or grouped-channel volume, mute, and pan automation in real-time.

I primarily use Logic ProX 10 2.1 and Presonus Studio 3.
For Logic Pro X you need to download the 64 bit driver. Once installed it works like a charm but the Latch, Write, Read buttons need to be selected via the Daw which is why I did not give 5 stars. Read more
In Presonus Studio One everything works. I love the service at Studio Economik.

Cheap, effective, quick and well built.
There is no reason for me to fault the fader port. It's simple to set up and use, and there is no comparison between using it and a mouse for writing automation. The alps fader is solid and silent. Changing write/read modes is instant, and the transport Read more
is super handy.
