Which control surface will follow track selection?

Currently, I am using a Presonus Faderport 16 in MCU/Cubase mode. It works quite well, but the annoying part is having to bank select on the control surface so that it matches the track I am working on. This means that I can’t just quickly look at it and grab the fader…instead, I have to bank around till I find it.

Is there a different surface (such as the new Avid S1) that would follow my track selection?


I made a feature request post for this exact reason. Mackie Controller - auto banking

I also find this quite frustrating.

Along with my single mackie control fader I use a Console 1 fader in my setup, and that follows track selection perfectly. Dom Sigalas made a vid about it on youtube as well.

I voted for it! Coming from Logic I was used to the controller following the bank. Oh well.

But yeah a friend of mine using Logic made me a bit jealous when he told me how it worked.

New ECON based AVID Controller follows track selection fine!

Steinberg single fader CC121 does that. And it also work fine with mixer surfaces like MCU in parallel.


I have sold my Faderport and ordered the S1. Thanks for letting me know!
