With eight motorized, touch-sensitive faders, digital scribble strip displays and HUI, Mackie Control, and native Studio One support, the unit has plenty of features, but never seems too complicated.
While the faders are expectedly the focal point on the face of the unit, the buttons around them are just as, if not more, useful. There are controls for arming tracks for recording, muting and soloing tracks, clearing all those mutes and solos, and choosing which tracks buses and VCAs the user wants to see, as well as four programmable buttons for personalisation.
For those who edit and mix tracks without the use of external controllers, the FaderPort8 might prove to be a worthwhile investment.
