Blackmagic Design Fairlight Console Channel Fader

Blackmagic Design Fairlight Console Channel Fader

With the Blackmagic Design Fairlight Console Channel Fader modular control surface at your fingertips, you can mix and automate your DaVinci Resolve 17 sessions with a fluid, hands-on workflow that helps you finish projects faster and more intuitively. It boasts 12 full-featured channels, each with a touch-sensitive motorized fader, a customizable pan knob, a crisp LCD screen, and more.

Below the LCDs and pan knobs, every channel has its own set of illuminated buttons for quick execution of solo, mute, call, and automation. Further enhancing your efficiency are the buttons to the left of the channels; these let you map tracks and buses to the faders. Ethernet connectivity and software configuration via USB Type-C ensure a straightforward setup.

Hands-On Workflow

The Fairlight Console Channel Fader gives you full mixing and automation control for your DaVinci Resolve 17 system.

Tactile Controls per Channel

Each of the 12 channels features a touch-sensitive 100mm belt-driven motorized fader, a customizable soft knob for panning, and buttons for solo, mute, call, and automation. Use the solo and mute buttons to quickly isolate tracks or temporarily turn them off. Call buttons can be used to load track parameters, set up fader banks, and spill bus tracks to adjoining faders. Auto buttons enable automation.

High-Quality Faders

The faders are sculpted and weighted for comfort and feature smooth-gliding high-precision motors that provide the sensitivity and feedback you need for the most sophisticated mixing sessions. Bank control buttons switch and control 12 banks of 12 faders plus an additional 12 banks of user-defined channels. Assigned faders can also adjust send and record levels.

Multifunction Pan Knobs

The multifunction pan knob features tap-to-reset functionality and can be used for panning or assigned to control other parameters. The pan knob is rotary encoder based, which means it won't introduce unwanted noise like mechanical knobs.

Crisp LCD Screens

The integrated high-resolution LCD screens located above each fader strip let you see track colour, name and number, along with pan status, level meters, and more. This information correlates directly with the track headers and mixer in the software.

Bank Buttons

The Fairlight Console Channel Fader also provides automation controls and bank buttons for mapping tracks and buses to the faders. The six bank and control buttons on the left side of the panel let you quickly switch your faders to work on 12 different sets of sequentially mapped channels. You can also manually map an additional 12 banks of channel faders for each fader panel.

Easy Connectivity

The 10/100/1000 Base-T Ethernet port allows simple integration with your DaVinci Resolve 17 system. Additionally, a USB Type-C port is provided for software configuration (via Fairlight Studio and Console setup utility) and software updates.

Convenient Software Upgrades

The Fairlight Console Channel Fader utilizes an internal software upgrade function via an updater application.

Internal Power Supply

Equipped with an internal power supply, the Fairlight Console Channel Fader bypasses the need for an unsightly and cumbersome wall wart.
