Please share experience with Control Surface of any brand

Hello, i am looking to buy an 8 fader control surface to run it with Fmod and would like to hear anyones experience with any control surface and Fmod. For DAW use i would it to be Presonus Faderport 8 because it can switch plugin controls to faders but Presonus drivers are not the best. So i was thinking to buy Mackie Control Universal since they made the protocol and i guess it would be a better fit with Fmod.
I have a Presonus Fadeport with 1 fader and couldn`t get it to work with Fmod.
Thanks, cheers
