The presonus faderport 16 is a GAMECHANGER!! Before I got it ,it took way longer to get a mix done. I am a Jamaican Reggae singer and now I can do my dub mixes much easier with automation. I love the whole layout, down to the click button Wow! I love the ability to gain stage in Studio one Also love not having to use the mouse and keyboard as much. I got rid of my Cs18 controller because of the faderport 16. Still a lot to learn, but I have no complaints so far.
