PreSonus FaderPort 2 Known Issues

Note: These issues are the result of control surface function implementations by PreSonus that cannot be avoided in LUNA.

  • Issue: The Add Marker button is implemented by PreSonus as a one-time switch. If MARKER LED is currently lit, you cannot press Marker again to add another marker.

Workaround: To add another marker, first press a different switch in the area to clear the MARKER button such as SECTION (Markers).

  • Issue: Switching from MARKER to modes other than SECTION (Markers) can re-trigger the MARKER button.

Workaround: Always press the SECTION (Markers) after pressing the MARKER button.

  • Issue: Pressing Solo Clear, Mute Clear, and Arm All toggles the function for all tracks in the LUNA session.

Workaround: None.
