    If true, this is concerning. I ordered a FaderCtrl specifically because my current input device from another manufacturer has problems with MIDI jitter.

    to be precise: if I move a fader right down, sometimes the last event has a value of 0 and sometimes it's a value of 1. with volume that doesn't necessarily make a huge difference. but if you control e.g. the pitch of an oscillator - that's a different story.

    I think if Corey could provide concise updates on the status and timeline of the full editor, beta photos or version, etc. That would go a long way in addressing the growing frustration that it will not be vaporware. Are there issues perhaps we can help with in some way (ie referring a coder/compiler, beta testing, feedback, etc.) ?

    Hi all, sorry for being off the grid, other life commitments have come first and have not been on the forum for the past week or two.

    In relation to your questions, the editor is definitely not forgotten however some have to realize that as a one man army, I have other responsibilities to attend to ie, additional work to help support the development of this software. Now, it’s not be any means a huge software project, however I am NOT a software developer by any means therefore in the initial phases, have had a steep learning curve in this phase. For the record, I’ve had to outsource developers who have cost time and money for which have flaked on myself, which is disappointing for both parties, myself and you all who were promised a completed piece of software for your FaderCtrl.

    As of this stage, I am working with another developer to help me complete this project. To help with the progress, I will post some screenshots of the editor tomorrow or the next. Please bare with me as I do apologize.

    Cheers
    Corey

    Thanks for the news, Corey!

    I have to say that since i have my faderctrl, it's become indispensable for my work.

    And i want to share a picture with the coverage that i made for my unit.
    It's made of tranparent plastic - i have such coverages for all my gear, synths etc., since i want to protect them from dust but i still want to see all their beauty :)

    Totally understand if you'd rather not do this, but I thought I should offer anyway: I'm learning to program and am getting pretty okay at it. If you allow me to access the code, I'll happily volunteer my time--it'd be a great learning opportunity, and I'd love to see an editor happen for this awesome product!

    Just received my FaderCtrl and it has just been a pure joy to use! It's helped me in my workflow so much, and I simply love the clean minimalist design. Thanks Corey!

    Is it possible to make it half the height? It would look really sleek.

    Dang, I ordered a JL Cooper Fadermaster Pro and it's arriving today. That would have been a much cheaper way to go. Although the Fadermaster does have the ability to have multiple pages for it's 8 faders. The FaderCtl looks great though and smaller.

    Hi
    I'm thinking about getting FaderCtrl and have a few basic questions.

    I have a 2012 MacPro,will FaderCtrl run off of USB2? I don't have an available slot for a USB3 card.

    Also a question concerning the bundled Arduino software, is it easy to assign CC's to get up and running for someone that's not well versed in this sort of control application?

    Does not having dedicated FaderCtrl software hinder the usability and ease of use of FaderCtrl?

    Are people that purchased and are using FaderCtrl still happy with the purchase & build quality?

    Thanks

    KG
