Play Starts the transport. Transport Buttons The transport buttons all work as you would expect. We note this detail to avoid speculation faderoort whether Ardour supports the device via the HUI protocol—it does not.
The Mix, Proj, Trns buttons do not obviously correspond any particular functions or operations in Ardour. If the Faderport is powered, changing the gain in Ardour’s GUI or via another control surface, or via automation, will result in the fader moving under its own control.
Using the Faderport The Faderport’s controls can be divided into three groups: You do not need to do anything to enable this—Ardour will set the device to be in the correct mode. If the Ardour preference “Loop-is-mode” is enabled, this does nothing to the current transport state.
Output Pressing the Output button causes the Faderport to control the fader, pan, mute and solo settings of the Master bus. Successive presses speed up the “rewind” behaviour. If pressed while also holding the Shift button, the playhead will move to the session end marker. Mix Possible actions include: If pressed while also holding the Stop button, the playhead will return to the zero position on the timeline. Punch When pressed on its own, toggles punch recording.
When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, this will create a new unnamed marker at the current playhead position.
When pressed in conjunction with the Shift button, this moves the playhead to the previous Marker. When pressed on its own, starts the transport moving faster than normal.

While the transport is rolling, touching the fader will initiate recording all fader changes until the fader is released. This button will do nothing if the Faderport is controlling a bus.
It is a relatively low-cost device that functions very well to control a single selected track or bus, along with a variety of other “global” settings and conditions. If pressed while also holding the Shift button, the playhead will move to the session start marker. A new dialog will open, containing among other things two dropdown selectors that will allow you to identify the MIDI ports where your Faderport is connected.
If your session does not contain a Master bus, it does nothing. Pressing the Output button causes the Faderport to control the fader, pan, mute and solo settings of the Master bus. If pressed while the transport is already rolling at normal speed, causes the playhead to jump to the start of the last “roll” and continue rolling “Poor man’s looping”. You do not need to use the power supply that comes with the Faderport but without it, the fader will not be motorized.

Bank The “Bank” button is currently not used by Ardour. If there is no punch range set for the session, this will do nothing. When pressed on its own, starts the transport moving backwards. Because the Faderport has only a single set of per-track controls, by default those controls operate on the first selected track or bus.
The Faderport’s manuql can be divided into three groups: We have therefore allowed users to choose from a carefully curated set of possible actions that seem related to the button labels in some clear way.
