    Keith McMillen Instruments SoftStep 2 is a leap forward in the portability and functionality of foot/pedal controllers. Whether used with an effects rack, MIDI keyboard or popular music software, this innovative device frees musicians from heavy footswitch pedals while expanding their control. The included SoftStep software application works with the SoftStep 2 hardware controller to manipulate sensor data for finely tailored control. These modified control sources are mappable to any MIDI or OSC destination, giving the player unlimited potential for creative expression.

    SoftStep 2 is powered by USB and has a 1/8" port for an expression pedal (volume pedals are not supported). SoftStep 2 ships with a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter so you can connect your 1/4" expression pedal to the expression port on the SoftStep 2. There is also an Expansion port for the Keith McMillen Instruments 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.

    SoftStep 2 has blue electroluminescent backlighting for easy visibility on stage. There is a 4 character, user programmable, alphanumeric display and 10 bi-color, user programmable LEDs for visual feedback.

    The SoftStep 2 is rubberized with a carbon fiber back for maximum strength and stability.

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

    SoftStep 2 is an extremely flexible controller with many possible applications. You can use it with computer software to control effects, looping, sample triggering, etc. Or use it with a DAW to set panning and mix levels, or trigger punch-ins and transport functions. You can use SoftStep 2 to control your MIDI synth and/or external effects rack with the Keith McMillen Instruments MIDI Expander (sold separately). In addition to controlling sound, SoftStep 2 can be used with anything that will accept MIDI or OSC data: lighting effects, video, robotics, pyrotechnics and more.

    SoftStep Basic Editor software
    SoftStep Basic Editor is an easy way to program presets taking advantage of the most commonly used sources and messages.

    SoftStep Advanced Editor software
    SoftStep Advanced Editor allows you to take full advantage of the power and flexibility of SoftStep 2. More fully-featured than the Basic Editor, the Advanced Editor is for users to want to get the very most out of their SoftStep 2.
