Product Description

Expressive MIDI Foot Controller

SoftStep is a leap forward in the evolution of MIDI foot controllers. 10 pads equipped with Smart Sensor technology each send up to 6 unique messages in 3 dimensions for unparalleled control.

It's USB bus powered and has an expression port to plug in an expression pedal (volume pedals are not supported). There is also an Expansion port for SoftStep MIDI Expander (sold separately) to enable use without a computer to control your MIDI synth and/or rack. Power can also be supplied through the expansion port.

It has blue backlighting so you can see it well on stage. There is a 4 character alpha numeric display that is user programmable. There are also LEDs for each key that can be programmed to display your choice of data.

SoftStep is rubberized and has a carbon fiber back to give it maximum strength and stability.

Each key is responsive to 5 degrees of control: X and Y axis, clockwise rotation, counter-clockwise rotation, and pressure. These control sources are mappable to any MIDI or OSC destination.

It weighs about 566 grams (about one pound) and is 105mm x 450mm x 24mm. The key pads are about 40mm X 40mm. The Nav Pad is about 50mm X 50mm and turned so that it is diamond shaped.

Features
• Pressure: Each key is pressure sensitive for expressive control
• Direction: Translate up/down and left/right foot movements into control values
• Portable: Weighs just 1.3 pounds, stands 1" at its tallest, and is USB powered
• Deep: Up to 6 Note, CC, Pitch Bend, Program, MMC, or OSC messages per key
• Rugged: Elastomeric skin and a carbon fiber backing… "it's beer-proof!"
• Flashy: 4-character LED display, 10 dual-color key LEDs, and EL underglow
• Beyond Sound: Control lighting and video effects, robotics, pyrotechnics...
