Highly programmable pedalboard
blueveek, 30.04.2017
One of the most feature-rich midi foot controllers I've ever used. Very easy to program with downloadable software (which has both easy and expert modes!), and extremely diverse in the multitude of things it allows you to do.

Frankly, I'd expect this product to cost a whole lot more for what it provides. This feels like a 700? or more product.

It provides midi over usb, and can operate in two modes: hosted and standalone. Hosted mode is when you use it with your computer, and it provides a superset of features of the standalone mode (still more than enough for almost all use cases). It draws little power from the USB type B plug, so I'm successfully using it with a Puc+ over bluetooth.

Be warned though: the soft pads and their "smart fabric" gets a bit getting used to. I'm still not sure whether or not I prefer physical switches or these "soft step" switches. They're illuminated so you know what you're pressing if you're looking, but if you're the type of person who prefers feeling switches instead of seeing them, you'll have a difficult time at first finding the right thing to press with your foot.

incredible
Hans7253, 21.01.2015
it's simply amazing how deep you can programe the soft step and its presets. With two different editors for basic and Expert users. Really well made and portable (about 500 gr). It will change the way I do music with Ableton Live and my horns. Really excited with this new toy!

Furthermore, I asked for some support to it's developer team and they (thanks Evan) modified some of his work (Ableton Clip Launcher) for get the SoftStep working on the way I was wishing!

Really happy with this money I've spent on this!
