Default Just purchased a FaderPort2 (2018)

Hi all,

Ran the installer, updated the firmware, running in MCU (Cubase) mode and it seems I have about 70% functionality at present.

Is anyone planning to write some .ini hacks to expand the features in Reaper? Also, I'm still on ver 4.**

My biggest non-working functions are:

Track scrolling/ selection (this is really messed up),
Zoom,
Markers (this button activates the metronome).

Is it possible that some of the improvements already done for the classic will work with the FP2?
Would Klinkes option be worth a look?

I'm sure this request will benefit a large group.

Thanks all,

Jack

Is this the newest single fader version? I'm curious if our FaderportXT driver works with it which allows customizing almost every button on the unit.

Also curious how it works in HUI mode.

Karb - yes, this is the single fader unit. Does the XT driver differ from the Klinke driver? I have not tried either.

JH - I tried HUI mode and all buttons/fader were non-responsive.

I can get by with the 70% I've got (its not going back), but the gripe list solutions would make this device that much sweeter. I'd even settle for specific .ini hacks for these specific items.

Default Another thought

I've had quite a bit of experience with the FP classic. I was part of a thread a few years back that got it moving for a few others on this forum.

My house fire last December took care of all my old equipment, so I'm slowly rebuilding the project studio now.

The good part is that I get to redesign from scratch.

Yes, FPXT is a vastly extended version of Reaper's built-in support for the original Faderport. So in that since it is nothing like the Klinke driver - both start with the same CSurf code IIRC but all the coding in FPXT is specifically for Faderport. If it works, you can just edit the INI file as described in the thread I linked. If the new faderport still sends the same IDs for buttons, it would probably work but I'd bet (based on looking at the new one) it may, may not, or almost.

Sorry about the fire, my house burned in December when I was 12, we lost most everything at the time.

Default I'll try the XT version this weekend

I have a bit of time so I'll give it a try.

You mentioned a link but I didn't see one (aside from your band link and FB).

Thanks.

PS. I really liked Face Dface
PPS. Fires suck but we power through
