Controlling Fairlight Faders With a $75 Midi Device

Want a control surface for Fairlight but not ready for the Fairlight Desktop Console?

If you’re like me, you love control surfaces and the tactile approach to editing. I’m not a sound design or mixing professional, so I don’t plan on buying a Fairlight control surface, plus they start at $3000.

But Resolve has support for MIDI devices so you’ve got other options for controlling your audio tracks!

And one good option is the Korg nanoKONTROL2.

In this video from Patrick Sterling, you’ll learn about:

  • Setting up the Korg device.
  • Controlling audio levels
  • Soloing, Muting, and Arming Tracks
  • Audio automation

What do you think? Would this device be useful for you?
