I actually had a small role in the solution. My thanks to Sacco (aka spyrograph) for chiming in and helping a fellow user from the extensive amount of time he originally put into the solution!!!

Hey Steve. I have seen this forum. and I have tried this fils. but they are buggy. And the motorized fader is not responing. so the use of the fader is less then ideal. It is up to image-line now to get it to work. But i do not imagen them doing so soon.

Could you summarize how you set it up? The post was quite complex so it entirely possible you missed something little but critical detail. In fact my posting was wrong in how it was set up. I noticed this in his posting after I made the recommendation. I’m happy to help you to get it working or maybe even respond to the old post to see if he is willing to help.

As you say, I doubt if image-line will be making any changes soon and MT Pro can usually work around shortfalls of a given DAW. It would be a shame to abandon the great work that has already been done.

With that said, if you are not tied tightly to FL Studio, then maybe the Presonus solution is the right one for you.

I’m here to help if you need me

You must “Enable MIDI output” in the OPTIONS menu in FL Studio. (also enable master sync and remote control if you want)

If the Faderport is in the right mode (Studio One mode) AND things are wired up correctly it should just work.

Most likely something in your setup is not correct. I know it looks complicated.

I use short versions for my Bome ports (BMT instead of the long names)

So..in FL’s MIDI settings:

MIDI OUT (Top pane)

BMT1 – Set as an “Frontier design Alphatrack” PORT 101

MIDI IN (Bottom pane)

BMT1 – Set as an “Frontier design Alphatrack” PORT 101

That establishes your MIDI feedback loop (FL>BMT>FP/ FP>BMT>FL)

I have downloaded the last fil that was added in the forum. that on has the best setup to date. But my mono/full stereo knob in the mixer is moving arround when i change the mixer track/channel, also the record bottom on the down side of the faderport is only sending a key note to what ever i used last.(when i puch it down). The biggest draw back is that the motorized fader is not moving at all. I have set it up just like you are showing me Bome: also i have faderport in bmt 1 out bmt 1 in faderport out opening the Bome program open rigth after i closed studio one to get the faderport in the rigth mood. and then open fl studio. I am getting movement in the mixer, some that i want. and some that i don’t + no motorized fader. (can’t mix with a saved project with that, you would move the setup every time you switch track channel). I belive it is not ment to be 🙂 This has apparently been a problem for many many years. (trumpit). BUT i would be so grateful if you did see a solution to this!

Hi, after doing my research, it appears that if you want to use FL Studio, the user that completed this post did A LOT of the hard work for you. If you closely follow the instructions he provided at the link below, this looks like it is the best solution for your issue,  You could also do the manual mapping, but you would use the LED feedback and Motorized fader control from the DAW that is included in the below solution:

Let me know if you need further help.

 

Presonus Faderport FL Studio implmentation -Motorized fader.

Now if you don’t prefer FL Studio, yes it looks like Presonus has native support on their DAW, or you find another DAW to your liking that has this support, go for it.

In either case, with my research, I now know a lot more about Fader 1 so feel free to come back here if you want me to help you with the a Bome MT Pro solution.

 

Steve

You might want to look at this video. It is for an older version for FL Studio but the new version works basically the same.

OK, I was looking at the project file that was posted in the old Bome Forums.  It looks like he set it up so that FL was talking HUI and then routed it through a Bome MIDI translator port coming from FaderPort.  It also look like he set it up so that Bome handled the LED feedback

Faderport -> MT Pro -> Bome Virtual Port 1  -> FL Studio (for the main control)

Faderport -> MT Pro -> Fadeport  (LED feedback)

FL Studio -> MT Pro -> Faderport (Other status and maybe motorized fader)

Faderport -> MT Pro -> Keyboard actions (for things that FL Studio doesn’t use MIDI IN)

The file and intructions on the motorized fader section helped.

 

But then i arrow back and forth in the mixer the mono/stereo knobs also moves the same way I move across the mixer. the record dose not work only makes a beat sound. also the fader is not responding on the different levels (motorized) I am unsure on how to fix this and even if it is possible?

Hi, I’m sure that most anything is possible, however it will depend on how much time and effort you want to put in. I would recommend the first step to go to PreSonus and ask them if they have a recommended configuration for FL Studio. I believe the FaderPort Link I sent you was for FaderPort 8, but it is possible you have a different model.

If they cannot help you, then the next step would be to contact FL Studio and see if they have something.

If you want to use MT Pro to create a custom configuration, this means you will need to log the output of each control of the FaderPort (you can use the logging feature of MT Pro). I looked at the FaderPort Owners manual but did not see anything that described what MIDI it sends. Maybe I’m looking at the wrong model?

https://pae-web.presonusmusic.com/downloads/products/pdf/FaderPort_OwnersManual_EN.pdf

Once you know what each knob/button or slider generates, you will need to know whether you can set up FL studio to handle that as input. If for a given control, FL Studio is needing something else, we can use MT Pro to translate the current output to the the desired output for use by FL Studio.

The best idea is to find a configuration you can use that is “close” to what you want and then do further customization of the desired controls one at a time. Once you get to this point, I can help you with a specific control translation but I would need to know
1) What MIDI message the control generates
2) What MIDI message you want it to generate

I hope this helps get you set in the right direction.

Here is a link at ImageLine if you want to request support for a new controller type.

Yes, I have the single fader faderport version. so the manual is correct. I have already been in contact with fl studio’s support and it seems it is not going to be a priority before a larger amount of there users request a native support for the same controller version. (it has been years since the first topic was made in the forum). now they are developing some new generic controller mapping that should make this things easyer. But there are noe known date on release. Therefore I was looking for other arragments/solutions. rigth now It seems it would be far easyer just to switch over to studio one. I am not sure if I should use more time on this matter. I do thank you Steve for your support! I’ll come back to this post if I find a solution. Best regards Jon

Hi,

According to the PreSonus web site, you can set your Faderport up as a Mackie Control Unit and it will work out of the box.  However if you want some knobs,  sliders to have custom functions, you could use Bome MIDI Translator Pro or FL Studio MIDI mapping functions to do similar.  Often times form more complex and custom behavior, Bome MIDI Translator Pro is the best choice.  If you have a specific function of a given knob, slider, or button, please let us know what the output of that control is and what FL Studio requiresss to perform that function and we can help here.  In the meantime, here are a few useful links you might try.  I just found them doing simple Google web search.

PreSonus How do I sent up FaderPort with FL Studio

PreSonus Faderport Pan Knob > Mouse Scroll Wheel

Presonus Faderport FL Studio implmentation -Motorized fader.

 

The last link is actually pretty detailed and even has a Bome MIDI Translator pro project file attached.

There is also a growing set of tutorials for the newbie showing how to use MT Pro and some on specific functions.

Let us know if this helps set you in the right direction or you need additional assistance.
