Here's what I did just a few days back. I've been using the Faderport16 for mixing for months now. I'm using Windows 7 x64.
  • Hold down BOTH the SELECT buttons of the two left-most channels while switching on the unit. This is just to check you have the proper mode selected, which is

  • Logic MCU mode. There are several variants of MCU mode, and that one worked for me.

    You select that by choosing MCU first, then a submenu appears and you pick Logic MCU. Then if necessary, select the Restart button.

  • Start up Reaper, bring up the preferences / Midi Devices

  • Two midi devices are presented by the Faderport16 in the input section.
    PreSonus FP16 and MIDIIN2 (PreSonus FP16)
    For both, make sure they are not configured for control and input. When you're using control surface plugins, you have to keep those two flags clear.

    The same applies to the two output devices in the output section on this page.
    PreSonus FP16 and MIDIOUT2 (PreSonus FP16)
  • Now go to the preference section Control/OSC/web.

  • Click the Add button

  • Select Mackie Control Universal from the dropdown menu

  • For MIDI input select the first device presented by the Faderport 16
    PreSonus FP16
  • For MIDI Output select the device with the same name.
    Keep the surface offset at 0, size tweak at 9. Those are the defaults. The three checkboxes can stay cleared.

    Click ok to close. That's the first.

  • Click the Add button again.
    This time select Mackie Control Extender.

  • The MIDI devices this time are
    MIDIIN2 (PreSonus FP 16) for MIDI input
    MIDIOUT2 (PreSonus FP 16)
    for MIDI output
  • The Surface offset (tracks) should be set to 8. Size tweak 9, checkboxes cleared.

  • Click ok and have fun.

Hope this helps.
