Can't type in values "1" - "5" as parameters on any fader in any Plugin

Does anyone else have the problem, that whenever you try to type in values on a fader, certain numbers won't react? For example: I cannot type in the values 1,2,3,4 and 5, but 6,7,8,9,0 are working. Is there any setting I'm not seeing? Just bought a new pc and downloaded all my FabFilter plugins. They work perfectly accept for this "bug", if it even is one and not my stupidity.


Hi Jonas,

Strange issue! You should be able to enter these values on most parameters that have a text entry option. Could you send us a short video that illustrates the issue? Please send it to info@fabfilter.com

Thanks in advance!

Hi Maarten,

I have also just started experiencing this issue. Please advise.

Hi Tom,

Could you tell us a little bit more about your system? Operation system + version, DAW+ version etc? Are you running the latest updates of our products? We have released a general update last June that has fixed the entry bug in Catalina.

Hi FabFilter Team,

I am currently experiencing the same problem while using Windows 10 Pro 1909, Ableton Live Suite 10.0.1, Pro-Q 3.14 and a Razer Ornata Chroma Keyboard.
I cant type the values 1,2,3,4,5, but if i press shift it works just fine.
Obviously I dont want to press shift all the time.
Thank you for your help.



Hey..I feel relieved that is not only my problem. Experiecing exactly the same issue (can not type numbers from 1-5) on Windows 10. Using Ableton DAW and Logitech keyboard


Same here:
- Win 10 Pro
- Ableton Live 10.1.30
- Logitech MX Keys
- Fabfilter ProQ 3.17

Had the issue before and after the update to 3.17 of ProQ.


Oh, and not ProQ specific, same issue when trying to type any value (1-5) in Pro C2, Pro-R, Pro-MB

@Fabulous Fabfilter Fellas:
Would be really nice to have that fixed soon! Thanks


Did you manage to solve it? I have the same problem ... Apparently the problem is in the interaction with Ableton Live, since I tested it on Studio One and the plugin worked perfectly.
